La Palapa Puerto Vallarta Mexico From the Ocean

La Palapa: A Culinary Haven by the Sea

Embarking on a culinary odyssey through the Romantic Zone, I refuse to let the day unfold without indulging in the delectable offerings this vibrant locale has to offer. My journey leads me to the iconic La Palapa, an establishment nestled along the sandy shores.


Here, the allure of local tropical cuisine, a harmonious fusion of Mexican and international flavors, beckons me into a culinary haven that promises an unforgettable dining experience.


As I take my seat, the rhythmic melody of the waves and the caress of the gentle sea breeze set the stage for what is about to unfold. La Palapa isn’t just a restaurant; it’s a full culinary symphony. Each dish is a note, harmonizing to tell the rich story of Puerto Vallarta’s culinary heritage.


Now, let’s talk about the stars of the show and the dishes that made my taste buds do the cha-cha. First up, the Al Pastor Pork Potstickers are a delightful fusion of Mexican and Asian influences that elevates traditional flavors to a whole new level. Perfectly seared potstickers, with succulent Al Pastor pork, apricot, grilled pineapple, serrano pepper, and fresh cilantro delivering a mouthwatering dance.


Next on the stage is the Coconut Shrimp. Each bite is a journey through the crisp coconut coating to the succulent shrimp with cilantro purée, mango sauce, ginger, and a tropical fruit relish, a tantalizing experience that encapsulates the essence of Puerto Vallarta’s coastal charm.

La Palapa’s commitment to serving dishes that are not just meals but culinary celebrations.


As the finale, enter the Creme Brule Mango and Tequila Flambe. The dessert is a dreamy fusion of creamy indulgence and tropical flair. The Creme Brule Mango delights with its velvety texture and the subtle infusion of tropical mango. On its side, the Tequila Flambe adds a touch of drama, as the flames dance in harmony with the rich, caramelized sweetness.


In every dish, La Palapa weaves a narrative that speaks of the region’s culinary excellence.
