Puerto Vallarta – Biblioteca Los Mangos

Puerto Bazar at Biblioteca Los Mangos

In an old mango orchard in Puerto Vallarta, on Avenida Francisco Villa a dream came true when the library was built with the help of community support. Opened in November of 1996 and host to guests of many countries, there are books in English, Spanish and other languages. Audio and visual services are also available. Free to the public and those who live in Puerto Vallarta (even short-timers) can get a library card. Your passport and a copy of a utility bill is all you need.

We pass along our used books to the library once we find we have a bit of a pile, and they always receive them with gratefulness and a big smile. If you have books gathering dust and at risk of mildew, get them to the biblioteca, where they will lovingly lend and take care of them. They accept books in all languages.

You’ll find other things happening in and around this rustic building. Ballet classes, piano, yoga, sculpture and painting classes; all very affordable. Cultural activities, art shows and community events take place inside and out on the expansive lawn.

This weekend, March 16th and 17th, you won’t want to miss the Third Annual Puerto Bazar at Biblioteca Los Mangos! Here is a chance to get some Mexican coolture. There will be entrepreneurs from Puerto Vallarta and surrounding areas, showing off art, design, music, dance and a diversity of many talents. Some contributors will include Sandy Ideas; Peekabow Mx; Je Suis; JUST-Alma PV; Little Maravillas; Sunflower Beuaty Care; Hilo & el Mar; ZARU Catering & Eventos, plus many more.

Entrance is free, with a selection of delicious food and drinks for sale. There will be family workshops, continual shows throughout the day, and something for everyone. It’s a relaxing place to be on the weekend, away from the crowds and hubbub. You can bring dogs, too, but please keep them on leash.

The Library is located at Avenida Francisco Villa 1000, Colonia Los Mangos. Busses, taxis and Uber will all know this destination, just south of Costco.

Normal open hours are Monday through Friday from 9 am to 9 pm and Saturdays from 10 am to 6 pm. Closed Sundays.
