Our family if 8 came upon ETC simply by word of mouth. We took a stroll in the beach a short distance from Dreams Villamagna & were ready for the highly recommended margaritas. Perfect! Then, the chips, salsas and freshly prepared guacamole took us into the sunset. A few margaritas in, some laughs & crys, we were ready for our... More

Stopped in for a few drinks and shared the shrimp with sea food sauce. Service was very good and it is fun to people watch as dogs are allowed to enter with their owners. Found the prices were quite high as the bill came to four hundred and twenty pesos.

Not many places to hang out on the beach in Nuevo Vallarta so you are not really spoilt for choice. Etc bar on the beach seems to be where everyone seems to end up for drinks or light snacks. Food tastes reasonable , not fantastic, drinks are ok. If you just want to lounge have a drink and watch the... More

WoW! this is a nice place to relax on the beach with a beer and nachos. You can go swimming and come back to your lounge chairs and table and no waiter will insist for you to order a refill. You drink and eat at your own pace.

Great little local beach bar. Nice place to watch the sunset or just hang out for the day, having a few drinks, people watching and sampling the menu. Often the daily special is Large fresh caught shrimp, either in a coconut batter (delicious, but almost too much coconut in one meal) or the bacon and cheese wrapped. We've had both... More

We tired this place again with friends who like it. Loud American music, over priced food, arrogant waiters. No reason to ever go back. Just awful!

Have been going for 10 years. Brought 6 new people yesterday and spent over $200 dollars on food and drink and yet the arrogant and obnoxious manager refused to let us keep 2 bottles of water we brought with us at $1.50 each. The staff has always been friendly but will not be going back to this wildly "expensive" place... More

Had to go twice to realize they double up your check every time you go. Asked for meal for two, 4 beers and charged 3 main courses and 8 beers!!! Place is great and music fine but felt they do it on porpouse. Won't be going again.

Bring a towel, sunblock, the rest is there. Very nice service, good seafood but the portions are really small. Dog friendly Drinks are overpriced. If you want to spend some time on the beach and don't belong to a private beach club, this is the place in Nuevo Vallarta

This place is way over priced and plays American music very loudly. It could be a very nice place to enjoy the beach. The setting is nice, but the atmosphere is not.
