You can go to their store or the small stand or find them at the Saturday market. Whichever you go to you are in for high quality chocolate treats! We got a box of their truffles on our last visit and each one we selected...was great! The small bags of chocolate treats are wonderful. Once in a while or everyday..... a good chocolate just makes PV even better. Treat yourself or that special person you want to impress Chico!More

HIghly recommended for chocoholics. Their truffles can easily compete with any fine chocolatier back in the US, and the prices are reasonable. The owner was very friendly and happy to chat chocolate. Their products are very European-style, which is is to say, not like the..."local Mexican" chocolates that are promoted at most other chocolate shops in town. The Mexican style is often bitter and chalky... a lot of people seem to like that (or at least think it's interesting and exotic and a fun gift to bring back home), but I think it simply isn't tasty. By contrast, Xocodiva makes beautiful and delicious truffles in the Swiss tradition. It was--by far--the best chocolate I tried in Puerto Vallarta.More

We were dying for some good chocolate and found this artisanal gem. We got truffles and chocolate bark. All perfect. And you can watch them being made— the tiny shop is separated from the workspace by glass...

Chocolate truffles - so many pretty ones to choose from! My favourite was the dark chocolate peanut butter.

We found this little gem of a chocolate shop on A. Serdan in Old Town. While the big store front windows are inviting for you to look in and watch the staff at their craft the real fun starts when you step inside. We were...greeted by Ron and Laura who immediately made us feel at home. We were their to take the 3 hour course on the history and art of chocolate making. We felt like actual choclatieres for a day. This course allows you to pick and design your own chocolate truffle while Laura explains and guides you through the process. Our chocolates turned out amazing but tasted that much sweeter because we now tasted them with knowledge and experience. Chocolates will forever be judged by our experienced palates !! So Fun. Thank you for an amazing day XocodivaMore

My husband and I stumbled across this little chocolaterie near our hotel. The woman who owned the shop was so welcoming. She took the time to explain what each of the truffles were and where the ingredients came from and gave us delicious samples. We...were only able to buy a handful of truffles because they wouldn't have survived the trip home, but they were some of the BEST chocolate I have ever tasted. On top of that they were absolutely beautiful. I only wish we were in town longer so I could have taken one of her workshops.More

Seven of us took a private class in chocolate making. The space is well maintained and very clean. Laura, the owner, is informative with the history of chocolate with lots of fun facts. The whole process is not only interesting, but very fun! We created...our hand painted chocolates from start to finish. It was an incredibly fun and interesting three hours! Laura went out of her way to make this a fun experience. She purchased the wine and provided the glasses. She made this such a fun afternoon!More

We wanted to purchase dark chocolate in PV. We discovered a new chocolate shop. And thank goodness we did! Amazing dark and milk chocolate, plus healthy selections, too. Ron and Laura, the owners, were very helpful. It is worth experiencing this delicious delight!

I've been a fan of Xocodiva chocolates and cocoa powder ever since I discovered them shortly after we moved to Puerto Vallarta at the end of 2017. I'm a huge dark chocolate fan and their chocolates are so incredibly rich and creamy, I have a...really hard time choosing between them. When I went home last May to visit family, I brought both my mom and my sister-in-law a 15 piece truffle box. They LOVED them and I plan to take more when I return next month! Xocodiva also sells Mexican pierced tin boxes with Talavera tile tops that really take the presentation to the next level if you're gifting them for a special occasion. I've been to chocolate shops in the States that sell similarly beautiful truffles, but none of them ever tasted as good or were as creamy as the truffles at Xocodiva. To have access to such incredibly beautiful and high quality chocolates in Puerto Vallarta is such a treat! If you plan to be in Old Towne, you really must make a point to stop by Xocodiva. You can also find them at the Olas Altas Farmers Market every Saturday morning during high season and this year, the new owner, Laura, told me they were also at the Marina market.More

As if Puerto Vallarta is not already full of temptations and delights, we have Xocodiva to inspire us as we await our next trip to PV, This addition to PV's many exemplary businesses is truly a highlight of every visit. Beautiful designs and unequalled exotic...flavors are both in abundance. The staff and owner of this fine establishment are friendly and happy to prepare gift boxes. We are bringing friends with us on the next visit to PV, and Xocodiva is at the top of our list of places to share with our friends. Try Xocodiva. You will become addicted.More
