Puerto Vallarta is a special place to me and I have lived, owned boutiques and sold oceanfront real estate there. Over the years, I have made many, many friends who own homes and businesses in Vallarta. Today, while in the Village of La Jolla, I saw that Alberto and Renee Perez from Vallarta have now opened a new restaurant on Prospect Street.
One of my favorite places to eat in Vallarta is their "sister restaurant" to the new one. La Palapa in Puerto Vallarta is a place that my daughter and I could get our hair braided, shop for jewelry and clothing and eat breakfast while wiggling our toes in the sand.
The Perez family's new restaurant in La Jolla is called "Tikul" and it is elegant and uniquely coastal Mexican cuisine. There is live Latin music and fresh tortillas! Happy hour is from 5 to 7 pm on the outdoor patio or in the bar. Be sure to say, "Hola & Bienvenidos to Alberto & Renee" when you visit Tikul and maybe Alberto, also a musician, will serenade you himself!
