Good food, great setting, too remote. I would stop there and order another meal in a heartbeat if I found myself up in the El Eden valley again.

The location is too remote for me to make a special trip from PV. Taxi from downtown to Chico's Paradise would likely be $12-15 each way. Add another $5-6 from the port. There are a ton of restaurants in Vallarta the are as good or better.

If you happen to be staying in the Mismaloya area, Chico's Paradise is very near by.

hey
we went on the tropical jungle tour through NCL and went to this location
it was awesome, we hiked and there was fresh water pools and waterfalls it was very nice, we paid 50 per person for the tour which was worth it since we stopped by los arcos for pics and then we got to hold iguanas and then after the tour we stopped in town for about 45 min for shopping by the beach, it was so worth it , i dont know if anyone took a taxi there, it is about 30 minutes from where the ship docks,,
any more questions or if you want to see some pics of it
send me an email [email protected]
