This place is a hidden treasure about a 6 minute walk from the condo. Best food experience in Puerto Vallarta! A little pricey but amazing. Try the tasting menu. You will not be disappointed.

When you want something different for dinner, this place is a great option - Thai food for in-dining or take out. Service is quick. Try the Pad Thai, Cashew Chicken or the Lemongrass Curry.

Yes, there is a Costco! Great selection of food and really good wine choices. As always the portions are large but great option if you want to cook in. We love their steaks and seafood. Just take an uber there and back.

La Comer is a complete 'north american style' grocery store. Good selection, perhaps not as good as at home, but still has everything you might want. There are reusable bags in the kitchen to take with you shopping.

This is a fun 'market' on Saturdays. Some crafts, some baked goods, food and music. Not really a 'farmers market' but definitely worth a visit.
