There was a long wait to get in here but because it was next to our hotel, we came back and enjoyed the dining while over-looking the bay.

I visited during an art show featuring works by local high school students and thoroughly enjoyed the grounds. On my next visit, I want to try the brunch. Meanwhile, I can recommend the margaritas!

We checked on this restaurant during our recent visit to Yelapa because of a very good experience we had there a few years ago. Well, the structure is still there and serves as a artist's studio, but not much of a restaurant. We decided to...More

My daughter and I stayed in a pelapa facing the river for four nights. We really enjoyed our stay and have fond memories of this unique place. The jungle sounds along with roaming roosters can challenge ones 8 hours of sleep but it's a small...More

Good 'rose' margaritas.... Breakfast??? Watch for that extra protein in their natural sugar...you know those tiny creepy crawlies. Broke American folks!! Seems they all had the 'starving artist' syndrome.

The micheladas were excellent...huge mug, very refreshing. The coconut shrimp and the garlic shrimp were great. The entrees served in clay bowl, I think they were called mocajetes???, they were so delicious.

A unique experience where the river meets the ocean and simple meets extraordinary. Welcoming artists from around the world to perform and exhibit their work. Cafe, Bar, Casita rentals, and fully equipped Pilates studio, with warm personal attention, a mellow atmosphere, and an array of quality services unlike any other place in town. We are on the shores of the Tuito River, just steps from the main beach in Yelapa, a short boat ride from Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. A truly unique experience!
