Saint Valentine’s Day is just around the corner! I don’t wanna pressure you, but do you have an idea of what are you going to do? Where are you going to celebrate? Where are you taking your loved one? Ok, ok, don’t panic! I’m here to help you. Here’s everything you need to plan the perfect Valentine’s day in Puebla, except your date, that one you’ll have to get it yourself.
You’re only job is to decide what kind of celebration do you want. Maybe something elegant, kind of a five-star experience, or a charming little place. Or maybe something cheap yet romantic. Just read all these options and decide for yourself. The important thing is you have a happy, romantic, filled with love Valentine’s Day no matter where you are.
Are you so in love you really don’t care about spending money to make your loved one really happy? Are you in the mood for a romantic, with really good food evening? Then you should go to La Conjura. This is, without a doubt, the best restaurant in Puebla, and it’s also set in a romantic, candle lighted ambiance. You’ll leave you’re partner even more in love with you!
Your Soon to be Favorite Romantic Place
If you are looking for a romantic restaurant with great food, a little bit of romantic music and good wine, the place to go is La Route des Vins (even the name sounds romanic, doesn’t it?). Enjoy a delicious fondue with a quality wine and a tasty dessert. The perfect starting point of a very romantic night. This will definitely become your favorite place in Puebla, you won’t get tired of it and you’ll want to go back again and again.
The Charming Little Place
Are you trying to impress somebody? Let’s not left in this person any doubt that you are the one, he most romantic person anybody could ever found! Then, how does it sounds to take your Valentine to La Tapía, a small tapas place on top of the La Paz hill, with a marvelous view of the city. Cozy chairs, romantic music, a little bit of tapas, a little bit of wine, what else do you need?
Romantic Doesn’t Mean Expensive
Do you want a cozy place, with good food, great ambiance, but not so expensive? How does an oven pizza snuggled up in pillows or in a fancy couch sounds? The place is La Burbula and is one of the coolest places in town and serves some of the best pizzas as well. So it’s the perfect place to spend a romantic yet cheap Valentine’s Day, don’t you think?
A Cheap Valentine
Cheap doesn’t necessarily means ugly. Plus, remember that the romance it’s an ingredient you’ll be providing, so it really doesn’t matter the place. My recommendation for a cheap, yet romantic Valentine is any Italian Coffee on the Portales (the animated covered sidewalks around the Zocalo). There are 3 Italian Coffee (that’s the name of the place, I’m not sending you to look up for a place that does its coffee the Italian way) by the Zocalo, one in each Portal. The romantic thing here, is going around 7pm and enjoy the Zocalo and the Cathedral all lighted up, listen to the music and later on the night, look at the stars. If you have a few pesos to spare, you can run to buy your Valentine a cool ballon from any ballon vendor around (there are a lot). So, as you can see, you don’t need to ope your piggy bank to have a romantic Valentine’s day.
The Plus: February 14th for Single People
If you are single, don’t worry, in México February 14 is actually “Day of the Love and the Friendship”, so you can celebrate with your friends too! My recommendation? Go to a place where you can drink, meet new people, listen to music and have a good time. I’d definitely go to Cholula, Bull McCabe or McCarthy’s Pub. Just have fun!
