Puerto Vallarta Coffee Fest Aims to Break World Record

February 12, 2018

If you love coffee, make plans now to be on the Malecón in El Centro on Saturday, February 17 at 6:00 pm for Coffee Fest Puerto Vallarta 2018, a fun and free event that is sure to be 'one for the books.'

Puerto Vallarta, Mexico - Drinking coffee is a daily habit for millions of people around the world, but doing it simultaneously with other java fans in a public event is the proposal of the Puerto Vallarta Coffee Fest, which will also try to break the Guinness World Record for the most people drinking coffee simultaneously in one place.

Puerto Vallarta's attempt to beat the current record, set in 2009 by coffee drinkers in Cologne, Germany, was originally planned for December 16, 2017, but postponed due to intemperate weather.

A new date has been set and the event will now take place on Saturday, February 17 at 6:00 pm by the Seahorse sculpture on the Malecón in downtown Puerto Vallarta (near the Hotel Rosita, Calle 31 de Octubre and Av. México), where coffee will be offered free of charge to all participants.

A member of the Guinness World Record team will be on site to verify the number of coffee drinkers at this historic event, which has the backing of the Tourism Trust and the City Council through the Municipal Tourism Directorate and the Cultural Institute of Vallarta.

The Puerto Vallarta Coffee Fest will be a popular party for the thousands of coffee aficionados in the Banderas Bay area, both locals and tourists, who can meet to taste their favorite drink, join the tourist promotion of the destination and be part of a new world record.

The Coffee Fest Puerto Vallarta 2017 also has the support of the Fire, Civil Protection and Public Safety Department for logistics, and a website has been developed where everyone who plans to participate must register - even those who registered for the previously scheduled event on December 16. Click HERE to register.

Upon registration, participants will receive a personalized folio number which must be presented, in printed or digital form, along with official identification, when entering the event on the Malecón. There will be two main accesses, in front of the Municipal Presidency and on the northern entrance of the Malecón, where participants will sign in and receive a commemorative shirt.

"Vallartenses and tourists alike are invited to come drink coffee and help us beat the world record, in what will be a great party in one of the most beautiful places on the Mexican Pacific," said event organizer, Carlos Arceo.

Breaking this record will result in the world-wide promotion of Puerto Vallarta, as the Guinness Book of World Records is the second most popular book on the planet, (after the Bible), with more than 3 million books in 32 languages sold in 120 countries.

If you love coffee, make plans now to be on the Puerto Vallarta Malecón on Saturday, February 17 at 6:00 pm for this fun and free event that is sure to be 'one for the books.'
