“Wonderful Little Beach Bar”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2014

First place we always head on our first day in PV. It is steps away from our apartment and allows us to sink into chairs right in the sand. Nice margaritas, buckets of beers and good guacamole and pico de gallo. Burro's is a nice daytime retreat from the heat, happy hour or late night drink. Enjoy a beach bar at its best.

“Nice beachside break on the Malecon”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2014

Burros bar and restaurant is near the end of the Malecon (past the Cuale river bridge) and sits right on the Muertos beach. Shade is provided by tatted umbrellas and the tables / chairs are patio style on the sandy beach. Therefore, expect a good breeze, (sometimes strong).
Hours: 9am to 1opm
Food: beach/bar style, seafood, Mexican
Service: was quick and attentive
View: Muertos beach and good view of Banderas Bay. Being on the beach, local pedlars will often come into the venue to try to sell you their products - this can be a bit of a nuisance during a meal.
Recommendations: nothing really stood out but we did enjoy their shrimp fajitas

“Nice Spot On The Beach, But”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2014

This is a beach front bar and restaurant where you sit on the sand under umbrellas and palapas.
Buckets of beer are priced about like everywhere in old PV town but the service is just so-so. Haven't eaten the food here as we guys usually just kick back, drink beer and play cribbage while the wives/girlfriends check out the local shops. If you want to be on the beach in the middle of the action, this is your place just don't expect too much and you won't be disappointed.

“Can't keep up with the Beach”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2014

This used to be the first place we hit when we got to Old Town PV. Tropical look among the cool shady palm trees. A cold bucket of 3 beers for 50 pesos. Now, even if the look has not changed much over the many years. The attitude and service has to a major down side. Once the hawker talks you into the place, they could not care less. Up and down the beach, they all have happy hours. Theirs tend to be confusing. When is it exactly? Shouldn't be always. This place has become just one in the crowd. The food has always been just okay. So take a look.a few hundred feet up the beach, Sea Monkey has service and pricing you'd expect in a bar at the beach. No one has to pull you in either.
