La Palapa Restaurant
La Palapa Restaurant combines gourmet cuisine, friendly service, and the tropical setting of Los Muertos Beach to achieve the perfect balance between fine dining and the warmth and charm characteristic of Puerto Vallarta Mexico. Located on Playa Los Muertos in the heart of the Romantic Zone, this popular restaurant is one of Vallarta’s favorite places to enjoy great food in a casually elegant atmosphere.
A Family Tradition - In 1957 La Palapa, was the first restaurant on the beach in Puerto Vallarta. It was the last dwelling going south and many of their friends called them “crazy” for building so far out of town. At the time there was no bridge across the Río Cuale and to travel to the resteraunt from the main part of town, a jeep or one of the two existing taxis needed to be hired, as long as the river wasn’t too high!
La Palapa has remained a consistent landmark for breakfast, lunch, dinner and special events over the the last 50 years. Music has always been an integral part of its ambiance, and the tropical jazz combo which plays in the evening make it even more special, as the candlit tables and tiki torches sparkle over the ocean waves.
When you are in Puerto Vallarta, locals and visitors alike know that La Palapa is a must.you can always expect the same warm and friendly service that has evolved over time.
