Miles Away From Home: How About a Shave in Puerto Vallarta?

It’s been a week and I’m looking scruffy.

I need a shave and I’ll be damned if I’m gonna do it myself like a poor person. Mike has recommended a barber a block away from the bar. There’s some pretty well groomed dudes in there so lets do that.  

I sit down in the chair and a guy offers me a beer. Don’t mind if I do.

I explain to one guy what I want and he translates to my barber. What could go wrong?

The shave was actually quite nice. He trimmed my beard and cleaned it up a little bit, then put a hot towel over my face. I wasn’t expecting this luxury. He then went to work on scraping my face with a straight razor and making it look good. The barber was a little rougher than the really good ones I’ve had in the past but overall it was a pleasant experience.

When it was all done, I was charged 130 pesos and I left 20 pesos for a tip.

I’ve been back since jotting down my rough copy of this blog and had another great experience. I’m definitely going back for 1 last shave Thursday or Friday before I head home.

La Barberia in Old Town Vallarta is located at Calle Lazaro Cardeñas #282 and the Downtown Vallarta location is 31 de Octubre #135.
