We rented a house on the Lake in San Juan Cosala and Viva Mexico was just 2 blocks away. I truly enjoyed my steak and my husband had chicken fajitas and tortillas. The staff was very friendly and the prices were excellent! .

One of the best, if not the best, places on the north shore of Lake Chapala for Mexican food. The selection was very good, the service excellent and the prices were very reasonable. We dine here several times a month and have never been disappointed.
