If you've ever been to the beaches of Puerto Vallarta or on the Malecon, perhaps you've noticed the vendors selling different types of fresh fruit and one of the most striking in presentation and preparation is mango on a stick.

Mango is a tropical fruit that is grown in Puerto Vallarta and there are many ways in which it can be prepared and enjoyed.

The mango is high in nutritional value as it contains no cholesterol, is low in saturated fat and sodium, and is high in dietary fiber and vitamins A, C and B6.

The way that mango is commonly sold on the beaches is peeled, on a stick and with cuts diagonally across the fruit, making it look like pine cone.

If you wish, you can add lemon, salt and chile (this is the most popular way to consume it), but if you do not like spicy foods you can order it served naturally and enjoy it while you relax on the beach.
