PUERTO VALLARTA

Puerto Vallarta made its debut as a tourism destination in the 1960s when celebrity visits by Elizabeth Taylor and Tennessee Williams launched the destination into the eye of international media, and has since developed into the country’s leading LGBT destination.

One of the few locations in Latin America that can claim to have a gay village, Puerto Vallarta’s Zona Romantica, is home to almost a 100 LGBT-owned or cater to the LGBT traveler, including beaches, tours, activities and restaurants bars and clubs to choose from. LGBT travelers have the option of choosing from gay friendly resorts, hotels, lodges, bed and breakfasts and guest houses.

A member of the International Gay and Lesbian Travel Association, Puerto Vallarta has been a preferred LGBT friendly destination in the Americas for over 60 years and has an infrastructure that is frequently included on leading media as gay friendly destination lists, including TripAdvisor, Lonely Planet, Out Traveler, Passport Magazine, gay.com and is the only Mexican destination on the Huffington Post Gay Voice’s Top 10 LGBT Honeymoon Destinations.

Puerto Vallarta also actively supports GLAAD, HMI and the GMHC.

This year it will host its annual LGBT event, Vallarta Pride, the weekend of May 22 to 26, 2014. From June 12-14, 2014, Puerto Vallarta will also be hosting the International LGBT Business Expo, Latin America's leading lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) travel business conference and consumer expo.

Playa Los Muertos

The beach is commonly referred to as the Blue Chairs area, which features a popular beachfront bar, restaurant and resort located near the southern end of Los Muertos beach. Here you’ll find many visitors sitting under the round thatched “palapas” for shade or lying out on their towels soaking up the Mexican sun.

Visit the Lido or the Mantamar Beach Club for a luxurious and modernized experience with large umbrellas, an air conditioned bar, lounge and an open-air dining area.

Gay Nightlife

Nearly all of Puerto Vallarta’s gay nightlife is situated in the Southside/ Romantic Zone area. This area hosts an endless selection of night clubs, bars, discos, cantinas, lounges, antros and gay party venues. Some casual spots are Frida, La Noche or Reinas. For a livelier environment visitors can head to Paco’s Ranch or CC Slaughter’s nightclub.
