Delicious Food in Puerto Vallarta: Why We Love The Tacos (And You Should Too!)

ONE KNOWS TACOS ARE A MEXICAN STAPLE, BUT PUERTO VALLARTA HITS IT RIGHT ON THE SPOT

We took a little time off for a friend’s destination wedding but also for some R&R. You know all hubby cares about is when & where he’s eating! This time it was me too. I was in search for fish tacos but ended up tasting other great tacos along the way.

We stayed close to the Marina for the wedding, so we discovered a tiny place right in front of our hotel.

LOS MOLCAJETES

The first day we arrived we got distracted by the Marina area which if you read my earlier post you would know it was too touristy. We ended up eating at a blah place that all the reviews said was awesome. Lies!

On our stroll back to our hotel we smelled this delicious alluring smell. We weren’t hungry, sadly, but we had our next place to try.

Next day we were there punctual for lunch. Tortillas made in front of you, ladies so friendly and delicious tacos. Super cheap too!

Done with the Marina area we moved over to the Romantic Zone, where we found a place that we went to several times.

EL CUΓ‘ADO

They have been there for so many years. I got to talk to the sons of the original owner, who now run it.

Nice guys and their dad taught them how to make one good taco and quesadillas. Both times we ate there they ran out of meat shortly after we got our food. Phewwww, we got lucky!

Quesadillas & Tacos!

TACOS ARANDAS

Found this place because we had wandered too far exploring and we were hungry. Hubby had been wanting more chilaquiles. After a long walk of dragging my boys around exploring we saw this little place.

It’s tiny, if you walk too fast you might pass it up. No tourists, just locals. Super nice staff, kind of shy though and good food. Nothing fancy, pretty simple and cheap. But good tacos and quesadillas. I have to order a quesadilla because my baby loves them.

MARISCOS EL GUERO

Locals send us to this place after I kept asking everyone for good fish tacos. It was a walk to get to it. Only locals were eating with us and some of them looked confused as to why were there. I guess they don’t want their place getting filled with tourists. Took this as a good sign.

I finally had my fish tacos! And oh let me tell you, these were not like the fish tacos I’ve had here. Different is the word I’d use, but delicious. But hubby ordered something truly different. Let me just show you instead.

The sauce they set out for you was so good I was adding it like it was salt! I wanted to just stick in my purse, sauce addiction on the spot. I was like, my precious…

PANCHOS TACOS

This was located right by our hotel in the Romantic zone but there was always a line and hubby didn’t want to try something so “popular”. Let me tell you that he just ate crow because these were THE BEST tacos on the entire trip.

Worth the wait must try!

The only thing that would have made these better if I would have had the sauce from Mariscos del Guerro.

TACO CONCLUSION

These were just the tacos we ate but there are so many more on the list. We ate at other places but this was about good tacos, not everything else.

The last tip: If you’re like me, wanting fish tacos, we were recommended El Brujo a place locals eat at. We did eat there but I got distracted and ordered something else equally as good. So there my last taco wisdom for your next Puerto Vallarta food adventures.

Know of good tacos we must try next time we’re in Puerto Vallarta?
