The first 2009 edition of Gary R. Beck's popular Puerto Vallarta Restaurant Guide 'Beck's Best' can be purchased online at
BanderasNews food writer and Puerto Vallarta restaurant reviewer, Gary R. Beck, recently announced the release of the first 2009 edition of his popular Puerto Vallarta Restaurant Guide, Beck's Best, which includes reviews of Banderas Bay area restaurants.

Most of us love to dine when in a new place or learn more about the town and area where we live! I live in Puerto Vallarta part-time and have been visiting this beautiful city since 1979, so if you desire info, feel free to send an email to me at garyrbeck1(at)

Now you can purchase my famous spiral bound 107 page 365+ restaurants guide, which has become a hit with visitors and local residents alike with places ranging from street food up to five star dining establishments. After 20+ years in the restaurant business, I have learned much about enjoying and preparing tasty food.

Since June 2005, Puerto Vallarta Restaurant Guide Beck's Best has progressed from a small document emailed for free into the largest, most up-to-date dining guide in the PV and Banderas Bay Area.

For many years, I have hiked from spot to spot, dining, taking notes and pictures, talking to owners and managers. Though fun and rewarding, it had gotten quite costly figuring in the food, beverages, airfares, rentals and taxis.

Since my Puerto Vallarta Restaurant Guide is edited almost daily, which greatly benefits both visitors and residents, many people told me it was time for me to collect a small compensation for my work. But, to me, the guide is more a "Labor of Love" than a job. I do not receive free meals, nor accept advertisement, I do it because of my passion for good food.

In addition to authoring the Puerto Vallarta Restaurant Guide,Beck's Best, I am also a food columnist for, have been published in most every Puerto Vallarta area English language newspaper and magazine, and have recorded a radio program for Paco Ojeda's the VU.
