The secluded beach town, a 30 minute boat ride south of Puerto Vallarta, is home to the famous pie lady, Chelly Rodriguez.
For 20 years, she has baked them at home and sold them on the beach. You'll find her strolling the shore carrying the merchandise in a Tupperware container balanced on her head. She's even become a local tourist attraction of sorts.
These homemade desserts are enough for some folks to make the trip south. Drive-Thru Gourmet columnist Ken Hoffman (who I think is overdue for a James Beard award) waxed poetically about her creations recently.
By all means, don't forgo margaritas or flan on your Mexican vacation. Just make sure to leave room for pie.
