Tacon de Marlin is a favorite amongst my friends and I. Their burritas are so flavorful, and their sauces are amazing. I personally like the shrimp burrita, but you get a choice of marlin, octopus, shrimp, or a combo of what you like. We normally order them to go and eat at home, as the place is not very inviting,...

There was no food served on our planes (2 shorter flights is still along time), so we were hungry and wanted to eat before getting a taxi to Conchas Chinas. Turn left as soon as you exit the airport (ignore everyone telling you to get a taxi). Round the corner to take the pedestrian bridge. This restaurant is just on... More

This place is a MUST anytime I am in Vallarta. A tacón is basically a big burrito filled with goodness. I always get the shrimp one and it's fantastic every time. I will say it's a bit pricey... $95 pesos but the portion is huge. While you wait for your tacon you get a tiny veggie salad in some sort... More

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
