“Not much to it...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 16, 2014

We went by chartered boat to Las Animas for lunch and an afternoon on the beach. There is not much to the beach area - it is a strip of cookie-cutter Mexican beach restaurants all serving the same fare at pretty inflated prices.

Our boat captain delivered us to a smaller boat to take us to shore (100 pesos for the micro-round trip) and we were very obviously steered to just one out of the several restaurants to choose from..."Pinchon" (pigeon) was the place where our guy likely got a free lunch if he brought paying clients.

He delivered us, and we sat down amid the usual plastic tables and chairs, and were offered menus with all the usual Mexican choices. 830 pesos later, we'd had 1 order of guacamole (average quality, even a bit runny), 1 order of chicken wings (overcooked and dry), 3 seafood tostadas (okay), and a plate of coconut shrimp (very average), plus one margarita and 2 glasses of wine. Yawn. But kind of pricey.

I have heard the Ocean Grill in this area is the place to go, but you need to make a reservation and pay a deposit online in advance. That is just too much advance planning for me. But it sounds like it is the price for decent food in this remote area.

From what we could see (and what we ate), I don't know why anyone would bother making this trip. A bit of a let down.

“Great experience and staff!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 9, 2014

Went with my family which included 2 people who are afraid of heights. Not only did they do it but we all had so much fun! Our guide Hugo was wonderful and very attentive! He did a great job challenging the people that it came easy for and at the same time encouraging the ones who didn't think they could do it. Loved it!

“Awesome!!!”

It was great. The family had fun. We took our 3 boys ages 5, 8 and 11. The guides helped the 5 year old. It was worth the price.

“Great day with the kids”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 7, 2014

We took out 9 and 12 year old daughters and had Hugo as our guide. Our entire family went through the course once and our girls had such a great time they went back and did it a second time. Very safe and a great way to spend a day out of PV. The water taxi from the Los Muertos beach made it an easy trip.
