Whether a local or visitor, there are times when we crave certain items here in paradise: the perfect pastrami sandwich, a favorite bottle of wine, or a light and fluffy croissant, as examples. But we have learned to settle. We trade off the sun and warmth for the lack of access to certain items that we long for.
Well, those days are gone now that Los Mercados has opened on the south side of Puerto Vallarta, just a half-block East of Molino de Agua on Aquiles Serdan.
Los Mercados is a combination of four unique shops and a paint-your-own-pottery studio, all under one roof, offering the finest collection of items available in the Bay! Here in the beautiful two-story hacienda, beyond their ornate gates, you'll discover these amazing shops at Aquiles Serdan #265.
