Jim Morrison - PVNN
In response to a daily avalanche of email inquiries from homesick tourists wanting to know what the summertime weather is like in their adopted city, Café Roma has purchased and installed a state-of-the-art weather station outside their famous restaurant, located at Calle Encino #287 in downtown Puerto Vallarta.

After spending a day installing the weather station and getting the information to upload automatically to his website, RomaMexico.com, Café Roma owner Sr. Fox said, "Those of us who are lucky enough to live here year-round forget how much tourists miss this place when they’re home. We’re just trying to make it a little easier for them to keep in touch."
|The weather station reports daily sunrise, sunset, moonrise, moonset, daily high and low temps, rainfall, wind speed, and much more. Check it out at RomaMexico.com.|
The weather station reports daily sunrise, sunset, moonrise, moonset, daily high and low temps, rainfall, wind speed, and much more. Café Roma’s live webcam is another popular feature of the site.
Says Fox: "On rare occasions when the webcam isn’t working properly, my inbox is filled with emails from customers from all over the world who are disappointed that they can’t check in. It’s just another way for us to shorten the distance between Vallarta and the people who love it."
Señor Fox is also an avid supporter of the Children of the Dump, a local charity that provides education and fun outings to some of Puerto Vallarta's poorest children. Since April 2008, Fox has been hosting fun afternoons filled with pizza and entertainment for 35 to 40 of these children every week, so stop in on Wednesdays at 3 pm to meet and support The Children of the Dump.
Overlooking the Rio Cuale in El Centro, Café Roma is a Vallarta landmark, serving great food and cold beer at fair prices for serious hedonists. They also offer free Internet and calls to the US and Canada for those who want to check in with the kids back home. For more information, visit RomaMexico.com.
