In this episode, we explore the neighborhood of Cinco de Diciembre in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. If you haven’t watched the corresponding video just yet, go ahead and do that! Then this post will make a lot more sense to you:)
Where is that neighborhood?
The Cinco de Diciembre Colonia is located in Old Town Vallarta and it stretches from Hotel Rosita to the athletic complex off of Calle Brasilia.
We are by no means experts of this area, but compared to the Emiliano Zapata neighborhood (where 90% of our videos are shot), there are less hotels and large condo buildings. This gives the neighborhood a much more local, authentic feel to it.
Which is exactly why we went searching for a hole in the wall Mexican restaurant in that part of town!
Where Did We Eat?
I am going to include a map below, just note that the actual restaurant is not listed on the map. Instead the directions take you to Grupojaliscience, but I assure you that is where the restaurant is at!
In my interview she told me the name of the restaurant is Comidita. I couldn’t find that in google or on the maps. I may have miss heard her, or since it’s a pretty small/new place, it is probably just not on Google or TripAdvisor.
From my understanding, comida corrida style restaurants have a few dishes on the menu that day and those are your options. They are usually very authentic, extremely tasty, and well priced! We are hooked! We now want to find the best comida corrida in town!
So how much did it cost?
Before tip our total was 160 pesos. Not bad for a full dinner!
Keep it Kinetic,
