Puerto Vallarta  is brimming with good food. In the winter, when the sun-hungry vacationers crowd in, a table at even an average restaurant may require a reservation. During the low season, however, Puerto Vallarta’s best eateries are easy to spot—they are the ones with the customers.
Moreover, good Puerto Vallarta eating is not limited to sit-down restaurants. Many food stalls offer wholesome, inexpensive meals and snacks to hosts of loyal repeat customers. It’s hard to go wrong with hot prepared-on-the-spot food. Each stand specializes in one type of fare—seafood, tortas, tacos, hot dogs—and occupies the same location daily, beginning around noon.
