Where is your "Go To" place in PV?

Do you have a "go to" place that you visit each and every time you are in PV?

Restaurant? Bar? Beach? Shop? Town?

We take the bus to Boca De Tomatlan every time. We love it. We walk around a bit, sit on the beach with tropical drinks and watch the people getting on and off of panga's and locals loading and unloading their boat with anything from soup to nuts.. Huge bags of cement and a lot of building supplies that go to Yelapa and other coastal areas where there are no roads.. Last time it was fun watching a guy load at least 30 watermelons onto his boat. Also there were people walking waist deep in the water, trying to hold their stuff above their heads, as they got on and off boats

We even enjoy the bus ride there and back. Always friendly smiles and it isn't unusual for someone to be playing a guitar and/or singing. A lot of locals working at the resorts travel up and down that stretch of Hwy 200. Each time we go by Mismaloya we say we will stop there next time, but we never have .. :)

I'm quite interested to see how this thread goes. I've been to PV 6 times, but still do not have a go to place, and my husband is from there and our all of our Mexican family live there. Other than places like Soriana, lol. We always end up somewhere new, but would love to see what other posters list.

Riding the bus to towns outside PV-Yelapa , Boca or north to Bucerias, Sayulita & LePenita

la Rhonda

Cafe Bohemia

Cafe Roma

Casa Isabel's

walk the Malecon to watch the breath taking sunsets

Cantina Crawl (that's where we met our " winter friends" ), so it's become a tradition

The town square on sun nights to watch the salsa dancers

Dee's Coffee shop or Page in the Sun almost every night or Robertos(?) on the Malecon for coffee b4 heading back to our condo

So many restaurants, I can't remember all the names of our favourite places!

Lakeside - nice work! Did you copy/paste to get that? If you don't know how I'll tell you in a pm. If you did copy/paste, then do the same thing in the address window of the website, then you'll get the whole link and it can be opened from the post.
