Where can we grub on some lobsters in PV?

Hi fellow PV lovers! My husband and I will be at PV Dreams during the first week of July. My husband is dying to eat some fresh whole lobsters. Any recommendations? Also how much should we expect to pay for them? Thanks!

The lobster in Puerto Vallarta is warm water and comes nowhere near cold water bugs IMO. Mariscos Polo has some of the best, but I still wouldn't write home about it.

There is much fresh, delicious seafood all over PV which is what we tend to stick tp, many great shrimp dishes to be found also.

If you are a true lobster lover (we are guilty as charged) you would be very disappointed at any lobster you would get in PV.

When it comes to warm water Pacific shellfish, when compared to what we have up here in the cold waters of the North Atlantic and North Pacific --- imo, it's no contest!!

What chico = Michael, is talking about is imported, high priced, north atlantic lobster, not our warm water version. Cheaper in Los Angeles!

PV just isn't the place for great local lobster. Stick to the fresh "catch of the day" or shrimp and you''ll be happier.
