Mauricio’s for Shrimp

Eat Seafood Like a Local in Puerto Vallarta

Seafood restaurants are abundant in every beach town in Mexico. Puerto Vallarta is no exception. A popular spot for shrimp and seafood is Mauricio’s Restaurant located on the highway to Ixtapa. We have eaten there for years. It is a family-style restaurant that offers a great meal for a great price. This is how locals like to eat seafood.

We always order the shrimp but Mauricio’s also prepares fish very well.

The #3 Combo for $154 pesos gets you the following:

  • Tostadas with pico de gallo
  • A cup of shrimp soup
  • A smoked marlin tostada
  • 3 kinds of shrimp, breaded, “a la diabla,” and “a la mantequilla”
  • A green salad
  • Fried banana with Lechera for dessert
  • Kahlua on ice to finish the meal

If you like shrimp, be sure to give Mauricio’s Puerto Vallarta a try. It’s a great value and you won’t leave hungry.

Another favorite in Vallarta is El Colegita which has a couple of locations, one in Marina Vallarta and one on the highway to Nuevo Vallarta.
