We headed to the Cheeky Monkey mid-afternoon on October 12th while we were in PV on our 7-day Cruise. From the moment we arrived until the moment we left the Service was AMAZING. Drinks and Food matched the Service. Will return any time we are in PV

We heard about this bar/restaurant from another Canadian while planning our trip to Peurto Vallarta. We were sure to stop in while touring the boardwalk area and we were very pleased we did.

This place on the Malecon has the best $1 margaritas I've had. There is regular lime, or strawberry (which had a great chili/strawberry powdered rim). There is also $1 Pacifios. They have a bunch of tv screens playing music videos, and take requests if you want (its just streaming YouTube). I would go back in a heart beat!

Love this place for dollar margaritas and beers, decent quesadillas, guacamole, and typical Mexican fare. Staff is a blast. GREAT views from 2nd and 3rd stories, of passersby, entertainers, the sunset, and the waves! Go here often!

Cheeky Monkey has excellent margaritas. The service is very friendly and fun. Come here as the sun goes down and enjoy a refreshing drink with an amazing view.
