Cafe Loco is a must-visit coffee shop in Panajachel. We went twice during our trip and would have loved to drink more Cafe Loco creations. We brought beans back home with us, but we are dreaming of Martin's perfect lattes. A fun and fresh place to hangout and meet interesting people.

I had a cold vanilla sky, it was very tasty. Just enough vanilla but not too much. They have a very big selection of different coffees, I'd go back any time. They only have the bar to sit at so it can get a bit crowded when they are very busy.

Thanks Lisa, Martin and the rest of the Cafe Loco crew. Most delicious coffee!! Such a creative way to set up the menu. True master barista's. We couldn't stay away. If you are a coffee snob, you can't miss out on this experience.

Cafe Loco is the best. All of the baristas are so friendly and they have an extensive menu of coffee and non-coffee drinks. They have a stoop that is awesome for people watching and the best punch card system!! I will always go back to Cafe Loco!

This place is great, they serve a wide varry of different coffees from espresso to chemex. We love the vibe and the environment they have created here, its like being in new york city. One of the top coffees weve had in latin america.

Great coffee and other drinks, super nice staff. Great place to hang out and meet local expats and travelers. I am addicted to the Batman and Robin, chocolate milk with mint. Seriously, the owner-operators are just the nicest people and want folks to enjoy the beverages. I've never had a bad experience there and if I ever return to the... More

I went here and got an iced Blue Caramel, which was their caramel macchiato. It was very good! It costs a few quetzales more than other great places in Pana, but it's a nice place to have a cup of coffee!
