One of the main products in the kitchen of this city is fish and seafood, with meals that are made as of crappie and octopus ceviche, fish dumplings or shrimp in tequila or pumpkin sauce, Other meals that we enjoy in Puerto Vallarta are the gorditas made of very thin tortillas and chips and decorated with chopped cabbage and sliced onion desflemada, or typical Mexican dishes.
And for dessert nothing better than to enjoy the posi, made with corn, sugar and tuna or “which” is made with dough, milk, sugar and ground coconut oil. But there are other desserts such as mango caramel or candies of milk and cocadas.
