My wife and I have been returning to Puerto Vallarta for many years because of the great weather and people. Restaurants come and go so it's very comforting to see small well operated family restaurant succeed year after year even in these difficult financial times. El Jacalito is located on the highway south of PV about 10km past Mismaloya and the Barcelo Hotel over the bridge on the right. The food is always excellent and served piping hot by the pleasant staff. The prices range from about $100-$150 pesos for a complete meal and the portions are generous. The menu includes beef, chicken and seafood dishes. My favorites are arrachera beef and coconut shrimp. They serve lunch and dinner each day and are closed on Sundays. I highly recommend that anyone who wants to have a great meal at a local rustic establishment with Mexican ambiance hop a bus or take a cab from downtown and try this place out. They even have a juke box with Mexican or jazz music to complete the atmosphere. A little jewel in Mismaloya!!!
