Subject: Puerto Vallarta Recommendations
We've been to PV at least five times and the following are our favourite restaurants:

Chez Elena at Los Cuatros Vientos Hotel on Matamoros up behind the cathedral - go up just before sunset and have a drink at El Nido, the rooftop bar for a gorgeous view of the sunset. On your way up, see Gloria Whiting, the resident owner of the restaurant/hotel and make a dinner reservation. Great food and atmosphere. This is the hotel we stay at when we go to PV.

Pietro's Pizza and Pasta - right beside the cathedral - reasonably priced fresh pasta and pizza and great sangria!

Archie's Wok - Thai food (excellent)

Cafe de Olla - I think it's on Basilio Badillo or in that area - not far from the beach in the area of restaurant row - wonderful seafood platter for two - this is probably our very favourite restaurant - food is great and the prices are reasonable - always a crowd and lineup but doesn't take long to get in.

Los Pibes - Argentinian - expensive but really good Argentinian beef.

We're not party animals into the entertainment scene but there's usually music all over the place. There's a hotel on the main drag where the mariachis play every night - if you're out strolling, you can't miss it.

There's also nothing like a day trip to Yelapa and a fresh seafood lunch on the beach for about $5.
