food vendors

We are staying at the Crown Paradise next month. Will we have any food vendors nearby? I've heard this is some of the best food to eat. Is it always safe to eat?

Here's a great 'guide' to street-food, complete with what to look for, location info, maps, costs, etc.


And 'yes', you can find some of the best food available in Vallarta at street-stands - inexpensive and very tasty!!

Not sure what you might find near where you are staying. I believe most of the stands are in the downtown and south side of the city.

Do partake, they're fun spots to eat!!

There is a guy who walked the beach in the afternoon last October with shrimp on a stick. It was 5 or 6 shrimp for 20 pesos, I think.

No guarantees. Some people never have problems with food in PV, other people do (whether from a restaurant or a street stand, doesn't matter). It's a roll of the dice imo.
