A Few of Our Favorite Restaurants in Puerto Vallarta (Map)

When we set out to create daily videos on youtube we never expected anybody to watch them. We definitely never expected anybody to watch us eat our way through the city!

One of the most common questions we get is in regards to where we eat and how to get there. Well, in today’s post I am going to show you where all of our favorite restaurants in the city are so that you will be able to find them!

There are two tabs: One for drinks and one for food.

There is some overlap and we definitely left out a ton of great restaurants in Puerto Vallarta, so comment below and let us know which ones we left out that you love!

We have listed each place down below with a short description of why we like it along with if it has air-conditioning or not. The A/C or no A/C matter may not be an issue if you are visiting Puerto Vallarta in February, but if you are there June-November, you will want some air-conditioning in your life!

If you want to check out the Facebook page or website for the restaurant, click on it’s location on the map and the website should pop up for you.
