The 10 Best Puerto Vallarta Coffee Shops & Cafés for Relaxing
Few things embody a vacation like coffee & cocktails, married deliciously at a number of the 10 best cafés in Puerto Vallarta. If you prefer the perk of coffee without the buzz, might we recommend a spicy Mexican mocha or refreshing frozen frappé?
Why are there so many deliciously artful cafés in PV? Part of the reason is the special place coffee holds in the heart of travelers. Whether used as a peaceful part of starting the day, a tonic for the night before, or pick-me-up to hit the town, it’s the perfect accent to every vacation. Another reason you’ll find so much coffee in Puerto Vallarta is the fact that Mexico is increasingly known for its quality of beans, especially those sourced right here in the Sierra Madre Mountains. As for where to find the best cup, here are our 10 favorite local spots:
Rodolfo Gómez #106
Head to this quaint shop in Emiliano Zapata for the best riffs on classic drinks you love.
Don’t leave PV without trying at least one of their famous frozen frappés. Popular flavors include the Chai with a shot of espresso, Oreo, and Cinnamon.
