“In season” here in Mexican resort towns may not be of any particular relevance since nearly all lobsters tend to be flown-in often from ‘parts unknown’ in today's corporate globalization of food supplies (thus predictably readily available).
For many years in Z area, lobs came in near-exclusively from Puerto Nuevo, some ‘fresh/live’, with the majority being frozen. I remember years back, when the ‘bridge’ over the back channel was frickin 2x12s on posts (!), where we were sadly notified over at Lety’s (?) after The Hike that there “are no lobsters since the flight from TJ (Puerto Nuevo) didn't come in today".....!
I can’t recommend any local sources, as we personally “do lobster” primarily at home, and of a grilled style in devout memorable respect for the MOUNTAINS of lobs that were once served-up on BIG platters in Puerto Nuevo…… and CHEAP 'back then', TOO……. with always Bien Fria caguamas! Though I would guestimate that many of the finer hotel and marina restaurants in Ixtapa would be a fairly reliable bet, and perhaps of an even more 'elegant' setting, if that is your goal. Simply give them a confirmation call upon your area arrival, or any of the other good local Z recos posted above.
And we shagged a few Big Boys last year in The Caymans which while indeed tasty, are nothing like Pacific lobsters; which are nothing like Maine lobsters. ALL Good though….. with that drawn butter just dripping uncontrollably down your chest!
