Puerto Vallarta scares the heat away with “Agua Fresca”

But what is Agua Fresca?

Non alcoholic drinks that are made with water, fruit, flowers, plants or grains and are sweetened with sugar.

Drinks commonly known as Aguas Frescas in Puerto Vallarta are a great complement to the local gastronomy due their tasty flavors.  They are refreshing and truly unique, some of them are known to have healthy benefits, helps calm the heat caused by the weather and tranquillize your mouth after some of the spicy food.

“Agua de Jamaica” is everyone’s favorite in town and is said to be very healthy.   Is made of the Jamaica flower and it supposed to be diuretic, helps alleviate hypertension, anti-parasites and a light laxative so it help detox the body.

“Agua de Tamarindo” is also very popular among Mexicans.  This fruit is known worldwide and it is commonly utilized on Asian cuisine.  The process of making Agua de Tamarindo is a bit more complicated and that is why is not so common to find it on local stands

“Agua de Horchata” is absolutely delicious and a must have for anyone that visits Mexico, this is drink prepared using rice, sugar, cinnamon and vanilla and is absolutely refreshing.  It is truly the perfect companion for any kind of Mexican food.

The summer is the hottest time of the year in Puerto Vallarta but we are ready to cool it down with some tasty Agua Fresca!!!
