I always go to Tacon De Marlin for a marlin burrito before boarding my plane home. The burrito is always hot and tasty. The burrito and a Coke Lite is about $6.00 US. Tip: To get there, walk to the south end of the airport toward the expressway. Go over the walkway and you will find the restaurant at the... More

Made to order, eat in or carry out (great for the plane ride home). Always busy but worth the wait. Simple menu, assorted fish, shrimp and crab, combo sandwiches available. A taco and cerveza .... a great lunch. Large enough to share.

I've gone to this restaurant the past few time's I've flown out of Puerto Vallarta. After checking my bag, I took the walking bridge to the other side of the busy road and ate a reasonably priced meal that was fresh and tasty. The last time I was there I had three Mahi Mahi tacos that were over-the-top good! I... More

After picking up our son at the airport and just before getting on the bus to Guayabitos we decided to try the highly recommended Tacon de Marlin! We were told to try the Marlin & Shrimp combo - which all 3 of us did! It came piping hot and the bowl was wrapped in a plastic sheet which we know... More

After checking in for our flight, we asked the gate agent for a reference where we should have dinner. She suggested Tacon de Marlin. Exiting left from the main doors, we walked across the pedestrian bridge which spanned the highway. At the base was a fish restaurant where we could see the cooks cooking on the grill shrimp, marlin, and... More

After check-in, but before security, go take a walk across the street, for some delicious eats. It is better than anything in the airport and better value too

Service was great, food was amazing! We got the shrimp, shrimp and marlin and shrimp and crab burritos to go, ate them while waiting to board our plane. It was amazing and fresh and probably the best burrito I've had in a long time! Super close to the airport, 5 minute walk, so it is very convenient to stop by... More

Down to earth atmosphere here but the tacos OMG !! You MUST try the Marlin Taco upon arrival (across from Airport) or while in town (easy to find). A little secret….Airline employees fly in and run across the road to grab a bag of these for their crews going to the states !! Its that good ! Enjoy….the secret's outta... More

Walk straight out of the airport take a left around the corner, past all the taxis, follow the locals over the pedestrian bridge. Tacon de Marlin is at the bottom of the walkway. I have been eyeing this place the previous trip to PV and had not made it in till this trip. Well it will be my families first... More

We had some time to kill before our flight so our family, who happen to be locals, suggested we swing by for lunch. I have been to Vallarta 20+ times and I'm not sure how I missed this delicious spot. It's by far one of the best places I've eaten in the city. Everything is very fresh and it's all... More
