Best Places for Drinks in Puerto Vallarta

If you're coming to Puerto Vallarta, Mexico it is likely that you will be on the lookout for great beaches and great drinks! Today we will tell you where to get the best drinks in town! We have taste tested now for six years and have compiled a list of our favorite places for drinks around town and a few additional details about each place!


Swell Beach Bar

Located on the beautiful Playa los Muertos, their drinks tend to be pretty strong and delicious. Swell is located right on the beach so it is perfect for those warm afternoons to chill in the shade. They also have great food too!

Address: Amapas 182, Zona Romántica

La Bodeguita

La Bodeguita is a Cuban restaurant and bar located right along the Malecon in Puerto Vallarta. They make a mean (and delicious) mojito and are blaring cuban music all night long. This is a great spot to catch live music and some very talented dancers too.

Address: Paseo Díaz Ordaz 858, Centro

Devil's Bar

Devil's does it all! All of their drinks are excellent. We typically go for the paloma (similar to a grapefruit margarita) or a michelada. This is our absolute favorite spot to catch a sunset as it is located right along the Malecon. The bartenders are also super friendly and personable!

Address: Malecon II, Local 39, Centro

Panchos Takos

Pancho Takos has some of the best (and biggest) margaritas in Puerto Vallarta! They are reasonably priced and just about 2 will be good for the night :) Grab food while you're there too---Greg LOVES the al pastor at this place. It gets super crowded so plan to get there around 4:00pm if you're like us and don't enjoy waiting!

Update: Pancho's always has a line so we aren't sure it matters what time you show up- you're going to have to wait. However, you can order a drink while you are in line so that will help you forget how long you have been waiting!

Address: Basilio Badillo 162, Zona Romántica

El Mole de Jovita

Also one of our favorite places to eat, Mole de Jovita puts love and passion into every drink they make. If you are looking for great food AND a drink, Mole is the spot! They also have live music several nights a week and it's in a great spot right on Basilio!

Address: Basilio Badillo 220, Zona Romántica

Joe Jacks Fish Shack

2 for 1 mojitos everyday from 2pm-5pm. What more do we need to say!? This is a really nice, modern, cool place to hang and their mojitos are delicious!

Address: Basilio Badillo 212, Zona Romántica

Until next time, Have Less. Do More. Be More.
