When the summer season arrives in Puerto Vallarta, you can count on some spectacular rain showers, greener scenery, and higher temperatures and humidity. Even residents used to the summer climate find it tempting to sneak away into a restaurant or cafe that has AC for a little break from time to time. Here are some of our favorite choices to keep you cool this season: 

Downtown Puerto Vallarta  

Dee's Coffee is a well-loved cafe right beside the pier with excellent fresh roasted coffee and handmade baked goods every day. It’s a great way to cool off and caffeinate after a morning walk. Siam Cocina Thai is a delicious Thai and Asian fusion restaurant that has plenty of cool indoor seating, and just up the street you can find Bravos, a local favorite offering traditional international cuisine or Azafrán featuring an excellent wine list and delicious modern food.  


Natureza is especially popular for lunch with tons of healthy options in a cool comfortable environment. For Italian cuisine and excellent small plates to share, try La Dolce, which also offers a supervised children’s play area upstairs. And if you’re craving Asian cuisine, Bonito Kitchen is a local favorite. 


Puerto Vallarta Hotel Zone  

Abbraccio offers cool AC, delicious Italian food and a family friendly atmosphere. There is also a party room that can be reserved for your special occasions. For fine dining, La Vaca Argentina  or La Leche are great high end options.  


Marina Vallarta   

Elegant Sonora Prime offers some of the best steaks in the city and as a bonus, there is supervised childcare services so parents can still have that date night out while keeping their minds at ease. Or try Benitto’s for delicious paninis and refreshing cocktails in a relaxing ambiance.  

Of course, there are plenty more wonderful dining options that offer a climate-controlled environment in Puerto Vallarta, so you are sure to find some favorites that will help you beat the heat in the summer.
