Sickness from the ice!

Be careful with the ice here. I was extremely ill after having ice based drinks from here. Most places use bought ice whereas this bar does not seem to. If you like to spend a night on the toilet though this won't matter!

Located near our hotel and directly on the beach, so we decided to stop in for late afternoon/sunset drinks. It was nice to sit on the sand as it was our first day in PV, but the margaritas weren't the best (but they were 2 for 1) and the food was terrible. We ordered the fish ceviche and the guacamole....

Stopped here for lunch while on the Malecon, beer was cold and reasonably priced, had buffalo wings and a nacho supreme, they were both excellent! Service was so so but overall a nice experience.

My wife and I stopped in at Burro's Bar for a light lunch Oma Sunday afternoon. We were greeted and seated very quickly. After that it went downhill rapidly. I ordered a soda water which appeared promptly but my wife's margaritas seemed to take forever and when I enquired the order was placed again. We had ordered the guacamole and... More

We have visited Burro's Bar on many occasions but never gotten around to writing a review. It is a great place for an afternoon snack of guacamole with chips, and a beer or margarita. Nothing fancy. Sit under a palapa on the beach and people watch. Food is reasonably priced. It is convenient to where we stay, and casual and... More

We stopped here to have dinner, drinks and watch the sunset. The food was good and reasonably priced in my opinion, but, there are definitely better places to get drinks. They advertise 2 for 1 margaritas, but they cost about 70-80 pesos total when there are other bars that do them 2 for 1 for 30 pesos and they're stronger.... More

Great place to sit and have a beer and people watch. Bathroom needs work but will do it a pinch. Food as average Mexican bar food and reasonable.

This was again our first stop for a cold drink and a bite once we arrived in town. We had a few cold beers and the famous guacamole we always enjoy. We got there right on time for the sunset
