Discover Xocodiva & Lix

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.

“Vallarta Lifestyles is a platform that allows us to reach the kind of market that we’re looking for. I think that, since its beginnings, 30 years ago, it has been the best publication of the destination. There’s no doubt that part of our success is for the advertising that we have in the magazine.”

“One of the biggest benefits of advertising our business in Vallarta Lifestyles is the presence of our brand aimed to the audience we are looking for. It is a reliable and professional magazine that has helped us with the marketing of our restaurant several times, through well done photography or articles. We feel that we understand each other.”

“Vallarta Lifestyles, from its inception has been a quality reference. In some way, it has managed to consolidate the destination because all our restaurants where there and we communicate as an exchange platform. The benefit, besides advertisement and recommendation, is that this publication is a solid copy of Puerto Vallarta’s evolution. If you pick up an old issue, immediately you’ll recall precious memories.”
