Mexico Style - Sunset View Restaurant
Puerto Vallarta is located in Banderas Bay, which is the second largest bay in North America. It has tons of waterfront ranging from the Marina (tomorrow's post) all the way down to Conchas Chinas (where the villa for the wedding reception was). The area of Olas Altas, or Los Muertos, is the original fishing village - what the French Quarter is to New Orleans. It has a huge gay nightlife scene, but it is also the oldest part of Vallarta (and my favorite part) and has some great restaurants and shopping. Many people gather at the different restaurants on the beach for breakfast and for sunset watching. My fave for sunsets is El Dorado, which has been newly redecorated with a vintage Acapulco feel. The calamari is the best I have ever had - and the peachy sunset is not too shabby, either.
