We know that coming to Puerto Vallarta to the All Inclusive Hotel Friendly Vallarta, there is no need to leave even the hotel itself, as that is the purpose of an all inclusive; however, Puerto Vallarta offers so much, so that you pack your best pair of sneakers and walk around the city, or why not, pack casual clothes and go out to eat or dine. Being a tourist port, there is a variety of restaurants to eat, but we have chosen the ones that will leave a mark and you will know that returning to Puerto Vallarta will continue to be delicious. We have prepared Puerto Vallarta Dining Guide:
La Leche is located in the Hotel Zone North, Boulevard Francisco Medina Ascencio, just a few steps from Friendly Vallarta Hotel.

With a selection of chef’s special dishes, La Leche makes the most of local produce to reinvent its menu every day. Among the favorites of the place is “La Leche Duck” next to the traditional “Sopa de Nada”, and certainly the favorite dessert that every visitor should try is the Chocomole: Brownie without flour + walnuts + popcorn ice cream = The Favorite of the house.
