Fun for the Younger Set in Puerto Vallarta: Puerto Vallarta is visited by thousands of people every year; many of these visitors are young and looking for fun and a good time. This great Mexico beach destination has countless activities and places for every mood and budget. It’s not necessary to spend much to have a good time. Here are some great options for some inexpensive fun and good food.
Let’s begin with some restaurants; these will give you a good feel for Mexican cuisine at a very reasonable price.
“El Coleguita” is one of the most popular seafood restaurants in Vallarta. Located in the Marina, with a great ambiance and view overlooking the pier. The portions are very large, enough for 2 people to share.
“Pinocchio’s”, it’s “the place” to enjoy a delicious pizza or pasta. It is located next to the bridge that connects the Malecon to Los Muertos beach, simply tasty.
“Takos Pancho’s” The traditional flavor of Mexican Tacos. Look for them on Basilio Badillo Street almost on the corner of Olas Alas street.
There are a few Japanese restaurants in Vallarta with good cuisine, and a variety of dishes. “Kashi Sushi” has great prices, along with quality food and service. ¨Kashi Sushi¨ is located near the “Stadium”, 3 blocks away from the main road on Olas Altas.
If one of your favorite things when you visit Mexico is the food, there’re two places that you have to visit. We call them “fonditas”, the first one. “El Rinconcito” is open for breakfast and lunch, and has great food. They deliver (if you’re near their location). The second, “Dianita’s” here you’ll surely find nice local people to meet and talk to, it’s the favorite of many. They have a great variety and different menu every day. Typical home made food with a great price. Find them in the Romantic Zone on the corner of Ignacio Vallarta and Francisco Madero.
Now, we have recommendations of bars and clubs so you can hang out, have a drink, and dance.
If you’re in the mood for being on the beach with a chair and a drink in your hand, you have to visit “Lido Beach Club”. You are sure to have a relaxing time, listening music and looking at the ocean from under your umbrella. Located on Los Muertos beach.
“Paradise Burger” on the Malecon is the perfect place to be any evening sitting on the balcony, enjoying a drink and live music.
“Iris Pub” is a good place to hang out with your friends. It’s a kind of alternative/rock place. Start your night having a beer and playing pool while you listen to a live local rock band. Also located on the Malecon.
“La Noche” is a fun alternative, great drinks and good music. Located on Francisco I. Madero street in the Romantic Zone.
“Party Lounge” is always an excellent time. Here you can drink, dance and have a great time. Located across the street from Hidalgo Park, one block from the beginning of the Malecon.
Two other options, of the many you will find on the Malecon of Puerto Vallarta are “The Zoo” and “La Vaquita”. Prices here are a little bit higher, but you are sure to have a fun time.
“CC Slaughter” has DJ mixed music all night. With music and a beer in your hand you’ll be in the mood for dancing. Located on Ignacio L. Vallarta.
In this amazing paradise called Puerto Vallarta there are a lot places to do anything you can imagine. We recommend you do your homework and look up places you might be interested in. It’s always good to do something different than your usual.
