Puerto Vallarta’s Gay Scene

Being gay is sweet in Puerto Vallarta. You can be naughty or nice whenever you want. Dance the night away at one of the fun gay bars or relax in the shade on your own private veranda in your exclusive, private villa. Ask for a masseuse to come to your home, get a massage, and sip margaritas until dawn. Puerto Vallarta offers everything that is the epitome of the ultra-luxurious, comfortable lifestyle.  As a result, LGBTQ singles, couples, and even gay groups worldwide now frequent Puerto Vallarta as their preferred beach destination.

Numerous LGBTQ dance clubs, gay-friendly bars, saunas, gay activities, boat tours, cabarets, musicals, gay beaches, times, and vast arts and cultural scene visitors love. The city is enormous and one of Mexico’s top tourist destinations; however, if you are gay, Puerto Vallarta’s Zona Romantica is where you want to be and where you’ll never have to leave. It is all right downtown. The gay Zona Romantica and all its gay activities are located in PV’s old town, so be sure to find accommodations closest to this area to get in on all the fun. 

The Typical Zona Romantica Day

Daytime action on Playa Los Muertos typically begins around 2 pm and ends around sunset. It centers on Playa de Los Muertos, considered the town’s gay beach and one visitors from everywhere enjoy. 

Want evening action instead of daytime activities? Head out at about 9 pm and bar hop until dawn as the party never ends in Puerto Vallarta. Old Town’s Romantic Zone is the center of nightlife, with many bars offering a great start to any evening. Many are located on Olas Altas or Lazaro Cardenas street, and the crowds spill out clear into the street to continue the party. Like most places in Latin America, the nightlife only gets going around midnight, and most bars peak around 2 am. Latin Fever is definitely like in the movies, and it is contagious, so take it slow in the beginning and pace yourself. You’ll have a fun-packed vacation, and you’ll need your rest. 

When to Visit

Puerto Vallarta is a popular beach destination for Mexican and foreign tourists. Traveling during significant public holidays like Semana Santa and U.S. holidays (Thanksgiving and New Year) will guarantee the town is exceptionally crowded. Peak travel season also coincides with the colder climates up north. Keep in mind that people tend to start migrating south in October! While the summer months between June and October are hotter, daily tropical showers and warm ocean waters also entice visitors to the city during this season. And if you are into the party lifestyle, making new connections, and having fun, be sure to visit in May. Every May, Puerto Vallarta hosts Mexico’s most prominent gay pride celebrations. It is a blast, and you will party like there is no tomorrow at this Gay Pride festival. 

Gay-Friendly Villa Rentals in Puerto Vallarta

While partying is excellent, you won’t want to celebrate every second of every day while on your vacation. You will want some downtime, so you won’t necessarily want to stay in the middle of the Romantic Zone. The noise and revelry can be overwhelming.  It is always best to stay close to the action but far enough away to have privacy, relax, and enjoy time away from it all. The best advice we can give is to stay at one of the luxury rental villas from Villa Experience. These villas are close to the romantic zone but are private estates in secluded neighborhoods. They sit safely apart but close enough to walk to the Romantic Zone. Here are a few examples of the accommodations we are talking about.
