Places to dine in Puerto Vallarta.

There is something for everyone in this city, no matter if your tastes are gourmet or grab-n-go!

Despite the variety of night time activities that Puerto Vallarta offers, dinner alone can be a memorable evening.  You would certainly found delicious broiled lobster, oyster, shrimp and fish which are big specialties here.  You also have a wide choice of Mexican and international dishes.

In addition to good hotel dining, there are many restaurants close by; many of them family operated.  It's fun to explore the town and sample what's available.
