One of the best coffees we have had. You feel the owners pride in the designs he makes in the cups. It is a must when visiting Panajachel

I am not a coffee drinker but my boyfriend is and this was his favourite coffee during our trip to Central America! I LOVED the white hot chocolate!

Cafe Loco is a must-visit coffee shop in Panajachel. We went twice during our trip and would have loved to drink more Cafe Loco creations. We brought beans back home with us, but we are dreaming of Martin's perfect lattes. A fun and fresh place to hangout and meet interesting people.

I had a cold vanilla sky, it was very tasty. Just enough vanilla but not too much. They have a very big selection of different coffees, I'd go back any time. They only have the bar to sit at so it can get a bit crowded when they are very busy.

Cafe Loco is the best. All of the baristas are so friendly and they have an extensive menu of coffee and non-coffee drinks. They have a stoop that is awesome for people watching and the best punch card system!! I will always go back to Cafe Loco!

This place is great, they serve a wide varry of different coffees from espresso to chemex. We love the vibe and the environment they have created here, its like being in new york city. One of the top coffees weve had in latin america.
