We stumbled on Etc. just by fluke. We were looking for 3x3 and walked 'way too far, doubled back and fell on Etc. We were so hot and thirsty it was like an oasis. All we had were three beers and a water which cost us a pricey $20,but it was a cool little place right on the beach with... More

Our favourite beachside bar on the Nuevo Vallarta beachfront (Bay of Banderas). We discovered it about 15 years ago, when it was nothing more than a hut, few tables & chairs and some loungers. Now there are many hotels nearby so it is more upscale, but still retains the beach-hut vibe. When in Nuevo, we always beach-walk there & have... More

This is a great beachside restaurant. I have came here a couple times with some friends. Now i don't think it is the most economical place out there but not the finest dinning. 150 pesos or so for a quesdilla or similar lol. We had the coconut shrimp that was on special. It did take a bit to get the... More

Great place to kick back, have a few cervesa's, some good food and enjoy the sunshine. We went back 4 times during our visit as our waiter, Ezekiel was fantastic and made a few suggestions for food choices. The portions are very good and we couldn't finish everything, not that we didn't try. If you like guacamole then theirs rates... More

Located next to the Kite Towers, a very casual beach front establishment Average prices, but great food The big ceviche platter was good and plenty for 5-6 people (unless your a pig) The cocteles are also plentiful, I would return

Semana Santa at the beach. Show up wearing your bathing suit, don't worry about dragging all your beach junk with you. You pay an advance against purchases, in this case $200.00 pesos each person for the day. They provide the umbrella, lounges, and a small table. The food was very good, and we chose to eat the very good Mahi... More

We sit on the beach, we take our dogs, we drink a beer or two. The waiters welcome us warmly and love the greyhounds. We love ECT. It is our party place with friends and neighbors. We love the snacks and lunches.
