On Basilio Badillo, one of the most traditional and dynamic streets of the vibrant Puerto Vallarta’s Romantic Zone, Lix is an artisanal ice cream shop that offers exquisite products made locally with 100 percent natural ingredients.

The originality of the concept and variety of flavors offered by Lix comes from Xocodiva, an exquisite artisanal chocolate shop that for 14 years has advanced this ancient food. The specialty is the individual pieces, handmade with European technique, based on dark, white or milk chocolate. One of their singularities, which elevates them to true edible gems, is that they are artistically painted with a natural, flavorless tint extracted and prepared from the same cocoa pod.

To appreciate the delicate process of making chocolates, Xocodiva opens the doors of their kitchen a couple of times a week so the curious and connoisseurs can witness the commitment and creativity chocolatiers Kathleen and Todd Atkins put into each piece.

For chocolate lovers, Xocodiva is a creative boutique that should be on your radar, along with ice cream parlor Lix, a delectable experience that is sure to please even the most discriminating palate.

“Advertising in Vallarta Lifestyles is an easy and direct way to reach all of the visitors and new residents that arrive to the destination. Of the 30 years that the magazine has been in circulation, we have been advertising for 23 years and without any doubt, it has been worthy for the big positioning that we have achieved. Besides, the quality of contents its unique in this area.”

“We have been clients of Vallarta Lifestyles since 1999, the year in which we arrived to this destination. Back then, it was the only publication where you could really do local marketing. These days, in spite of the arrival of new technologies, we keep advertising, because it is a really important complement for our marketing strategy.”

“Vallarta Lifestyles was the first reliable magazine that emerged in our destination. In fact, up to date is the only publication that we have in Puerto Vallarta that you can be proud of, because if you give it to someone, you know that person will enjoy watching the photos and reading the articles in each of its pages. I consider, that it is the only magazine that prevails in Vallarta · Nayarit as an icon of this genre”.
