Puerto Vallarta

Also known as “San Francisco of Mexico”, Puerto Vallarta is arguable the best gay resort town in Mexico and is slowly replacing the more famous Acapulco and Guadalajara. Nestled in the bay of Bahia de Banderas, Vallarta is a typical Mexican coastal town which, however, features all the modern conveniences to offer maximum comfort. The locals and the municipal government have put a lot of effort into making their town as gay-friendly as possible and based on the many of highly diverse gay venues both in the city and on the beach, they have also put a lot of effort into making their town enjoyable to gay visitors of all ages and interests.

Relax on the Beach, Party in the Many Clubs/Bars and Explore the Beautiful Surroundings

Vallarta is a perfect getaway for just about everyone who likes the sun and sea. Stunning sandy beaches, crystal clear water and great climate combined with the unique Mexican character and modern infrastructure make this resort town an absolute paradise. In addition to relaxing on the beach and enjoying a wide range of water and beach activities, there is also plenty to see and do in the town itself and its immediate surroundings boasting breathtaking natural beauty and a myriad of attractions for all tastes and interests.

The many gay bars and clubs, most of which are in the Zona Romatica area in south Vallarta, come “alive” after sunset and welcome guests from all over the world until sunrise. Those preferring a more relaxed evening can enjoy a walk on The Malecon walkway along the coast, late evening shopping and fantastic local delicacies on virtually every step.

Beautiful beaches, gay-friendly atmosphere and the many fantastic gay venues with guest appearances from sexy london escort girls catering to just about every preference have made Vallarta a hot gay resort town, first among Mexican, American and Canadian gay travellers. But they were soon joined by gay travellers from elsewhere as well including Europe, giving Vallarta a very cosmopolitan feel without affecting its authentic Mexican character.

Getting Around Puerto Vallarta

To longer distances, it is best to use taxis. The drivers are very nice and with a little bit of negotiation, you will get a very good price. Note that you’re expected to give a tip.


There are many hotels and guesthouses in Vallarta and all are very gay-friendly. Keep in mind, however, that the resort town is hugely popular and that it gets very busy during holidays so make your reservations early.
