Puerto Vallarta Gay bars (not necessarily only gay Bars in Puerto Vallarta) are re-opening in different areas of the city, such as Centro and Zona Romántica starting August 6, 2020 without the requirement to purchase food. They can stay open until 2am and still need to maintain all safety protocols. If they maintain good discipline in the next few days they could be allowed to stay open until 3 am. All bars must have infrared thermometers to check customers temperatures, sanitizing mats and antibacterial gel. Dance Clubs may be open within the next 15 days. 

  • All the safety social distancing requirements, use of masks, sanitizing mats and antibacterial gel ARE STILL in place. 
  • The bars are allowed to open until 2 AM. 
  • There is not a requirement to purchase food. The bars will not be operating as a restaurant under this rule change but some are choosing to keep the food for the immediate future. 
  • The 90 min time limit and 3 drink limit is apparently also lifted. Confirm this policy with the individual bar you enter.  
  • Dance Floors and Dance Clubs and Live Entertainment are still closed until further notice.
