A day on the beach listening to the waves .. sounds like paradise. Not the case at Ritmos. While the waiters work hard and are very attentive, and the food is basic, the real problem is the volume of the music. It starts out at a reasonable level but as the afternoon progresses, it gets louder and louder until there... More

The food is ok, the staff are great and hard working. This beach club has been around for years and is going down hill as the music has escalated to the point where it is at night club volume in the afternoon. If you want to enjoy the waves -- sit far away from the restaurant and bring ear plugs.... More

Always a favorite place to spend the day except that the music volume increases over the day until it is pounding so loud it drowns out the waves. If I wanted to be in a nightclub atmosphere, I would go to one. It definitely violates the new noise laws in Mexico but obviously get$ around the law. We come to... More

Ritmos, AKA the 'green chairs' is a classic PV beach club, with surf, inexpensive drinks, and great people-watching. The menu has all the typical PV beach fare including guacamole, quesadillas and even an omelette for early risers. The waiters are among the hardest-working people I have seen in PV. The music can get a bit loud at times, otherwise a... More

The service here is really good (they have many customers and have staff usually to handle), and they will set you up for a stay of a few days to a week with 'your spot' to be in the sun, and have either a palapa or an umbrella. Their chairs a fairly comfortable wooden sling bound sets, but not as... More

Find a chair, get a drink, enjoy the views and chill out. There's no fee for the chair and umbrellas and the drinks are reasonably priced. The vast majority of folks here were gay guys, but not exclusively. People were friendly, but it was also quiet enough to read a book. I found myself here from noon to five all... More

The staff and area here is outstanding. He has a great bunch working here to keep you well fed and with great drinks to keep your day in the sun the best it could be. The umbrella and palapa are great shade from the sun and people watching is incredible. The bathrooms have attendants and are always clean. I used... More

This became our go to beach spot during our recent stay in PV - we spent 3 afternoons here before and after our stay in Yelapa. This is a busy location - with great people watching and chat opportunities with other visitors (and vendors if you choose). The crowd and music make this location is a bit more interesting than...

Beach club and restaurant directly on the beach at the south end of Los Muertos Beach. Right next door (just south of the Blue Chairs) Live music and great food & drink, with umbrellas and palapas. Excellent service. Much better than the Blue Chairs.
