Kristi and I love seeing movies in other countries. We’ve been to theaters in Malaysia, Thailand, Vietnam and Cambodia. Naturally when we heard there was a VIP movie theater here in Puerto Vallarta, we looked it up and found something to go see.
7.5 pesos on the public bus and 20 minutes later we were dropped off across the street from La Isla Shopping Village. A brand new outdoor mall where most of the stores opened their doors within the last month.
We arrived early to make sure we got seats and had time for dinner. Expecting to pay 110 pesos each, we were pleasantly surprised to be charged 150 pesos for both of us!
We had dinner across the street at Taco Republic. The food was okay. The beers were 2 for 25 pesos.
Trying to figure out if we had to walk up to the counter to order or not, a server came to us. We ordered 2 affagotos which is espresso and ice cream. Kristi ordered boneless chicken bites and I ordered a banana nutella crepe and a small popcorn.
The waiter asked if we would like it here or in the theater… Ummm obviously in the theater. What a stupid question.
Officially leading the way in cheap movie theaters: Mexico!
