This unique, fully equipped and supplied market is actually more than a mini market; it’s a coffee shop, a free WiFi center, a drug store and a boutique. You can get your coffee fix (in all the flavors and styles you are used to) and enjoy it right on the premises in the “Loft” of comfortable love seats and glass top tables while using free WiFi and munching on fresh made waffles, bagels and other classy delights. And we’re not talking just any coffee—only fresh beans from the mountains of Chiapas, Mexico’s best, are roasted locally by Puerto Viejo Roastery and ground on premises to awaken your taste buds. They’ll even grind you a bag to take home!

There is a coffee culture experience awaiting you from 8:00 AM to 10:00 PM daily except Wednesday when they take a day off.

We have a lot of events in Puerto Peñasco, most are colorful and fun. But there are several that seem to project the true culture of this great and historic country and people more than others. This year’s Tequila Fest was one of those. Maybe it was the location, maybe it was the way they laid it out, maybe it was the décor, and most likely it was the traditional folkloric performances by the dancers, singers and musicians that continued through the night showering the attendees, including many ex-patriots with color and sounds of the “real” Mexico we all came here to experience.
