Puerto Vallarta, Mexico - This Saturday, July 7 marks the most wonderful day of the year. It's World Chocolate Day, which means you're more than justified to eat, or drink, your bodyweight in any kind of smooth, velvety chocolate you can get your hands on.
Cacao beans, the basis of chocolate, come from a small evergreen tree native to Mexico's south tropical region commonly known as the cacao tree, or by its scientific name Theobroma Cacao, which literally means "Food of the Gods."
And, since the cacao bean is one of Mexico's many culinary gifts to the world, there's no better place to indulge, whether it is served up as a drink, a piece of candy or cake, brownies or something unexpected covered in chocolate.
If the very mention of chocolate makes you salivate, then come experience the "Food of the Gods" the way that only Hotel Mercurio, Puerto Vallarta's Favorite Gay Hotel, serves up one of the world's most popular and sought-after treats.
On Saturday, July 7 from 3:00 to 9:00 pm, Hotel Mercurio will be celebrating this 100% Mexican gift to the world with specialty, chocolate-based martinis and lots of delectable surprises. If you don't believe us, just take a look at the video above!Hotel Mercurio is located on the south side of Puerto Vallarta, just a half block up the hill from Olas Altas on Calle Francisca Rodríguez (the street perpendicular to the beach where Los Muertos Pier is located.)
