Small Island Dining at “Restaurante Cerros Los Chivos

You absolutely must join us for an irresistible meal and afternoon at Restaurante Cerros Los Chivos. You’ll be happy as a Mexican goat eating when you visit this extraordinary place to feast on Pescado Zarandeavo (breaded fish fresh from the sea). We guarantee you’ll enjoy this amazing lightly breaded flakey whitefish meal with frijoles, rice, and fresh local organic fruit. Or you may prefer some perfectly grilled chicken, or even shrimp diablo? All specialties of  Rocio, the talented local Island chef who also owns the establishment. After savoring some of the best traditional Mexican cuisine this side of the Sierras, relax to an easy going laid back afternoon at the beach with plenty of sun, plenty of shade and plenty of local hospitality awaiting!

Toby O. says this: “I’m so glad I chose Chivos to have lunch with my friends that afternoon…. It had the most relaxing little beach, great scenery, and Rocio is a superb cook! I really enjoyed the experience. “

Just in front of Restaurant Cerros Los Chivos is an inviting small island beach that faces Isla de la Piedra near Mazatlán. After your meal you can take a short walk from the shady restaurant palapas and discover an incredible ocean view…… practically all to yourself. Hike a little further on for a panoramic landscape that includes all of Mazatlán to the west while El Faro lighthouse also draws the eye as it overlooks the Port entry. And…..be sure to keep an eye out for those long bearded curly horned Mexican goats!

Murtle E. says this: “My afternoon at Chivos Island was unforgettable….. my taste buds were screaming “YES!” Mary continues with ……“ I highly recommend making the short trek across to Goat Island when in Mazatlán. There are a lot of choices available for lunch in this beautiful area of Mexico and we definitely chose a great one!”

It couldn’t be easier to get to from the Port of Mazatlán. Just step onto a small ponga boat at the embarcadero Playa Sur. A pleasant little ride takes you across the narrow port channel to Restaurate Cerros Los Chivos and it’s right there on the ocean! Private beach, great hiking, maybe a massage after a couple margarita’s or chilled cervezas (we all know what that is !!) …. and yes….HAPPY GOATS from which the island got its name. When you’re here, It’s hard not to be happy!

So please come join us and enjoy a special afternoon of small island dining at “Restaurante Cerro Los Chivos” on Chivos Island for really great food. You’ll be so glad you did and…..you’ll be happy as a goat!

Your friends,

Dallas & Rocio

Thanksgiving on Stone Island 11-26-2015

So many things to be grateful this year, as is the case every year, but even though I’m in a country that doesn’t recognize this American holiday, I’m not the only American here on the island. There are a whole group of wonderful people here that celebrate the holiday. Some are visitors like me and many who have traded in their residency in the US for life on the island. If you ever visit, their motives will become quite clear, and you may ponder what your life might be like with such a move.
So this year I’m not only grateful for the awesome family and friends home in the sates and elsewhere, but also for the island and the people who draw me back here each year since my first visit 3 years ago. Thank-you all for opening your door and allowing me to be part of your little piece of paradise. I am truly Grateful.

This is a little video of the Thanksgiving celebrationa and fiesta that took place atop Dr. John’s beach house with a remarkable vantage point to enjoy a feast and good company.

Here are a few more shots of Stone Island and the Port of Mazatalan. I was a bit higher up and back off the beach a little more. I’ve got some projects lined up here that I’ll be sharing as the weeks go by. And believe me, they are going by fast !! Seize the Day
