You cant get any closer to the waves without getting wet. Watch the surfers do their thing. Great place to relax and have a meal with a cold beer. Great for watching sports with several outdoor TV's. The only downfall to this place is one waiter who is known even by locals as the slowest server around. Took 30 mins... More

Nice place on the beach but not too impressed with the service nor the food. The waiter seemed "put out" that we didn't want bottled water at about 2 bucks a bottle and the cheese burger that I had was just average. Chunks of gristle and bone in the meat. It was cooked over a wood fire flame but it... More

The only thing I can say good is yes great view however service was horrible. It was 3 of us, we ordered an appetizer and 2 drinks. I... More

Our family has been going to Zippers for the last 12 years and I am sad to say... this will be the last. For the past three we have said, "Just one more time." The absolute best part is the location. It is right on the beach, looking at the ocean and checking out the surf. If you just want... More

During our 9 day stay, we ate at Zipper's 3 times :). The view alone is worth an "Excellent" rating. The ocean breeze makes you simply forget about the heat. They have truly the best margaritas I have ever had. Don't have more than two though ;). I also loved the nachos and guacamole!!!! I can't wait to go back!

All their rental surfboards are beat up with dings and de-lamitation. Their prices are higher than costa azul (across the street) and their boards are crap. They also will refuse to refund you even if you bring the board back early. If you are at all serious about surfing would highly recommend that you do not rent a board here,... More

We loved Zippers! The location is gorgeous and it's away from all of the busy tourist areas. The food is great and priced well. It's a must if you're in San Jose del Cabo.
