Puetro Vallarta grocery shopping recommendations?

mizinformation | Dec 10, 2006 06:43 PM

I'm making my first trip to Mexico (Puerto Vallarta) this month and have seen the helpful restaurant recommendations in recent threads. Now I'm looking for some help at the grocery store! I'm interested in both things to buy & consume there as well as (food-related, of course) things to bring back as gifts (and to stock my own kitchen!)

As far as things to eat there, I'm open to pretty much anything--we'll have a kitchen. I'm specifically interested in recs. for baked goods and dairy products but if there is interesting produce/meat/fish I might miss (as opposed to the limes, avocados, etc. that I'm already dreaming about!) please let me know.

Things I have in mind to bring back:
citrus juicers (I have one for limes that I use constantly!)
beverages (alcoholic and non)

I'm interested in any specific favorites folks might have and also any other general categories I should be considering. I'll be sure to check the customs info before I go!

Also, I'm in the Pacific Northwest, so my local grocery stores have pretty extensive Mexican food aisles. I'm looking for items that aren't readily available in the states.
