|Restaurants and Fun Dining|
in Puerto Vallarta and Around Banderas Bay...
There's more to eating out in Puerto Vallarta than just "thank you, drive through." There isn't a Taco Bell here in Vallarta, but we do have McDonald's, Burger King, Domino's Pizza and a Pizza Hut. But where's the fun in that?
One of the best parts of taking a vacation is the opportunity to go out to eat for every meal, and here in Puerto Vallarta, dining out is a culinary smorgasbord. The restaurants around Banderas Bay offer a wide variety of the world's most sensational cuisines, and each November, award winning chefs from around the world come to share their culinary secrets with local chefs at the Puerto Vallarta Gourmet Festival.
From gourmet restaurants where meals take two, or even three, hours to fast food franchises and family-owned restaurants serving "comida corrida" at reasonable prices, you can savor the flavors of Mexico - and the world - at the restaurants in Puerto Vallarta Mexico.
