Stopped by on Valentines Day for a couple ice creams. 95 peso total, gave the owner $100 peso note, she took it, put it in the cash drawer, flipped the cash drawer closed, said 'thank you'. No smile, nothing. I was like 'what the he**', too shocked to say anything so I slowly walked away wondering if I should make... More

In the evening you may have to stand in line to get your ice cream fix. OR your frozen banana fix. Frozen banana - filled with chocolate or caramel or plain, then coated with milk chocolate or dark chocolate or caramel, then coated with nuts. (all optional and done on the spot). Well worth the short wait.

Don't mistake Lix for just another ice cream shop! The most delicious, creamy, velvety ice cream I have ever had - you HAVE TO try the Salted Caramel and candied pecan flavor. OMG, one scoop is just not enough!

While I am a regular fan of chocolate and strawberry, I will suggest that the salted caramel pecan flavor was delectable! This is a great little shop to visit for a nice... More

My friends I love this place and always seem to end up here when we're in the area. We miss Xocodiva, the chocolate shop that was next door, but found out that a lovely couple just bought both businesses and will be looking for a storefront. You can get their chocolates at the Los Mangos market for now. Until then,... More

No trip to Puerto Vallarta is complete without a visit to Lix for some hand crafted artisan ice cream. You'll argue over which flavor is the best - go with a group and order several so you can compare notes on your favorites. Salted caramel? Nutella? Wild French cherry? I prefer chunky peanut butter. My kids love the frozen bananas... More

Try the hazelnut. Many yummy flavors. On a great street in Zona Romantica and a short walk from the Malecon.
