Nuevo Vallarta has the first traditional (building, catering, and staff) yacht club we have visited since leaving San Diego. The Vallarta Yacht Club has a beautiful clubhouse overlooking Paradise Marina, food and bar service seven days a week, and plenty of social activities for both the cruising community and those who have settled here on land either permanently or seasonally.
One of the several events we attended was a fish fry with friends from Double Dharma and C’est La Vie. Like many yacht clubs the food was great and a bargain besides (this all-you-can eat dinner was around $12 pp and included a nice Latin/Carib band for entertainment). Nice cold Pacificos run about $1.60, this is our kind of place!
