Over the years, have repeatedly come back here for the healthy food options (tuna stuffed avocado..yum!..Nicoise salad, fruit drinks) + good ambiance and selection of reading materal. Consistently good!

I was so happy to find this place selling reasonably priced used books. They have a great selection! I didn't stay for coffee or pastries, but it is a comfortable place to sit and relax.

I was served a freezing cold double espresso. What a disappointment, especially given the hype of this establishment. Thankfully, there are many other places to grab a quality coffee in Peurto Vallarta.

A page in the Sun predated the coffee shop/book shop in the US by several years. It's been a great place for winter residents as well as permanent residents to meet friends, trade for books, or have a snack of muffins or coffee cake, or even a full breakfast.

Great spot for hanging out in Zona Romantica after dinner. Coffee, dessert, and books! Attentive service, outdoor tables, romantic ambience.

The place is filled with mostly English-speaking expats and Snow Birds from Canada and the USA, but I like that the staff members are almost, if not all Mexican. They are gentle, friendly, and sweet. The coffee is good, the treats, baked fresh daily onsite, are delicious, cinnamon buns not too huge, and muffins not too sweet. To top it... More

I always buy my coffee for my stay at page in the sun and I know many go there for a coffee/pastry break and enjoy a good read there. You can trade/buy used books here. The setting on the park is also very nice.

This year I brought a lot of books with me to clean out the house so to speak. Read those I had not read and then cashed them in. For those who do not know you can take books here and get credit for other "used" books. The problem lies that the selection is pretty slim this year and you... More

What a find! My husband finished the books he brought and was getting antsy. We found this cafe/used bookstore on TripAdvisor.Most of the books are fiction and not all romance novels. He was able to find a recent biography. He's happy...I'm happy. They only accept cash.
