We were in Chacala for a week and went to Chico’s once a day. The grilled whole fish is like none I have ever had and the best I have ever had! The wood they cook the fish with leaves a wonderful flavor.

The location is great, watch the sunset with your toes in the sand while eating. The seafood is fresh. You can spend a lot of time here when ordering drinks and food
