Restaurant Review – Vista Guayabitos

Vista Guayabitos Restaurant is located at Carr. a Los Ayala km 1.5, Rincon de Guayabitos

Opened in 2004, the success of this restaurant is that you accompany your delicious dishes with an excellent view. The menu consists of delicacies made of fish, seafood and meats prepared with fresh ingredients and a variety of international cuisines.
