My 8th trip to PV. How have I overlooked this place until now. It's Just over the pedestrian bridge at the airport. Decided to eat here on our departure. Let me just say this will be my first and last stop from here on out. The shrimp burrito was by far the best meal I had in PV. (And I... More

First meal we had in Puerto Vallarta and staying in a local area away from the tourist spots, frequented it on several occasions. Great food and friendly service. The smoked marlin tacos were out of this world!

Located right across the road from the airport via the pedestrian bridge. The menu is very simple, the prices are very reasonable, and the burritos are very fresh and taste amazing! I had the sea bass and shrimp burrito. I also love the cucumber salad they serve with it, as well as the relish with cucumbers, onions, and jalapenos. Will... More

This place is across the street from the airport. You can cross through the pedestrian bridge. Loved the Marlin Tacos with pineapple and the Shrimp and Octopus Burrito. Lunch is a good value and the seafood was fresh. Good flavor. Going back.

Part of my boyfriend's family live in PV so they took us to this place. It is a small not completely good-looking place, i mean it does not look like a restaurant. It is right in front of the Airport, so i think not lots of travelers have the chance to try their burritos... which is terrible as they have... More

Conveniently located across the street from the main airport terminal via a pedestrian bridge, Tacon de Marlin is a classic "workers" dig where the food is fresh, simple and dirt cheap(no credit cards). We stopped in for lunch upon arrival to PV and thoroughly enjoyed the varied taco's and burrito's. Beer is sold in the shop next door and is... More

A friend took me to this place for lunch our my way out of Puerto Vallarta. We wanted to have lunch before boarding the plane. The place is right across from the airport with an overhead cross walk. We took a taxi from our hotel and stopped at the restaurant. I wish I had known this place earlier because I... More

The burritos just melt in your mouth. Try the yellow sauce, and squeeze a bit of lemon on your burrito every other bite (you'll thank me later). Staff is extremely courteous, and funny. It really adds to your experience. I suggest getting to the airport 2 hours early, checking in, then taking the walk way across the main road down... More

The combo (marlin and shrimp) is the best burrito I've ever had. This is one of our regular stops when we go into PV (from Punta de Mita). The food is always fresh and hot. The burritos are so big, my husband and I usually share one. The staff is always great, Christian was very friendly when we visited there... More
