A must dine when visiting this area. Very nice location by the ocean, close enough to see and hear the waves. Incredible viewing of luminescence in the waves, nice fresh food.

Habaneros is a Mexican style restaurant on the beach. We had very good guacamole and chips, tasty ceviche, fish tacos (huge) and a platter of chicken in spicy sauce. They also have different kinds of margaritas with local fruits. Good service, great location and good food. A nicer place for Santa Theresa.

They made us feel like we were the only ones there. Lots of attention. Jalapeno Margaritas are the best in town! Especially at sunset.

We had the most beautiful sunset dinner here. Such a cute place. The food and drinks were somewhat disappointing but the view and good service made up for it. Prices are slightly ridiculous though so be prepared to pay a premium.

The cocktails (mango jalapeño!!) and shrimp bites were amazing. Beautiful view and great flavor. They were sadly out of the lobster tacos, but we hope to try them before we leave! Great spot!

Beautiful beachfront Mexican fusion restaurant located in the highly rated Playa Cielo hotel. Daily specials according to the catch of the day (lobster and fish are a house specialty!) Combined with a rich diverse menu, serving fresh ingredients to your table.
An amazing selection of delicious, naturally flavored maragaritas, to sip while watching the incredible sunset views.
Come and enjoy our food and atmosphere!
