What to Do on Your First Day in Puerto Vallarta // Life in Puerto Vallarta Vlog

Botanical Gardens-5

This blog post accompanies our Youtube video by the same title. These vlogs document our daily life here in Puerto Vallarta. For more information on great things to do in town, check out this post!

Our friend Jamie just came to town and we took her to a few of our favorite places in Puerto Vallarta. Whenever guest come to Vallarta we want to show them “real” Mexico, get them to the beach, and get a drink in their hand.

⇒Where did we eat?

Emiliano Zapata Market. The middle restaurant with lemons on their table cloth… If you don’t know any Spanish we don’t suggest going there. If you can read a menu in Spanish and understand basic restaurant lingo (would you like anything to drink, I need the check, etc.) then you will fit in just fine! We like going here because it is far away from all of the touristy shops so it is a good way to “shock” our guest into what the “real” Puerto Vallarta is really like. Also, the food is really good and #really cheap!

After eating some delicious Mexican food at the Zapata our favorite beach spot in town is Swell beach bar. They have half price drinks from 6pm-8pm and they are the beach drinks we have had in town! If you are walking on Los Muertos Beach it is located two spots down from La Palapa. You will walk across a small boardwalk, pass La Palapa, then El Dorado, and Swell is the next place. They have have plenty of beach chairs set up right along the beach and the wait staff is excellent!
