The nightlife and entertainment in Puerto Vallarta is interesting because there are two groups here in Puerto Vallarta: the group of expats who love to go out at night for fine dining, and the group of expats who like to go out and party.
The fine dining here in Puerto Vallarta is unbelievable. There’s Café des Artistes where the chef is Thierry Blouet, a world-renowned chef, and then there’s Si Sushi, which is located off of Punta De Mita, and is fantastic for seafood and for sushi. We also have Italian restaurants in Puerto Vallarta, and there’s Mezzogiorno in Bucerías, that is just to die for.
For a lot of expats here in Puerto Vallarta, the first kind of nightlife is where they go out and spend the evening going to these fantastic restaurants that usually have live entertainment at no extra cost, and the most amazing food.
Vallarta is the best location for partying. It has fantastic bars and discos, and comes alive after 10 o’clock at night. The malecon, which is the concrete walkway along the ocean, is absolutely jam-packed with people at this time of the night. At the malecon, you’ll find sightseeing and open-air bars where you see all the people inside dancing and having a good time as you walk by, while enjoying the beautiful evenings and the moonlight.
