Learn which 10 Puerto Vallarta restaurants made it on 2 major best restaurants lists this year!

When people visit Puerto Vallarta, they will find an array of activities to choose from. From beautiful beaches to jungle hikes to waterfalls, from resorts to hostels, from holistic retreats to all-night parties, and from relaxing vacations to adventurous ones, Puerto Vallarta has it all. While some might be pleasantly surprised to learn this, the city is quickly becoming a hub for other kinds of culinary experiences in addition to its popular street tacos.

According to Lola Mendez in TimeOut, “Mexico is home to some of the best cuisine in the world with an abundance of traditional dishes that hail from various states and pueblos. No two places prepare tacos the exact same way whether it be from a street stall to a high-end dining establishment. Eating in Mexico is a culinary adventure that will tantalize the taste buds.”
