My first visit to Puerto Vallarta was 30 years ago. Yesterday, I tried to recreate the drive from downtown to Mismaloya Beach and Chicos Paradise. I only have a remote memory of the views of the big Banderas Bay. We stopped at a modest restaurant right on Mismaloya Beach — "Las Gaviotas." The fish was epic: sarandeado style accompanied by the best coconut ever, mixed with Tequila "Cazadores." I hope to be able to remember these flavors for the next 30 years.
