Puerto Vallarta Gay Guide: A Night Out on the Town. In 2013 Lonely Planet rated Puerto Vallarta as the world’s 6th most gay-friendly destination and TripAdvisor users rate Puerto Vallarta as the #1 Gay Destination on the planet! This once sleepy fishing village on the Pacific coastline has positioned itself as one of the pre-imminent LGBTQ party destinations globally. The night scene in Vallarta refuses to conform to a typical stereotype. The city, long recognized as an LGBT mecca, has taken on a variety of roles and identity since the mid 1970s when discerning gay men first made Vallarta´s Los Muertos beach the ground zero for gayness. Puerto Vallarta´s vibrant gay scene has resulted in a world famous Zona Romantica gayborhood and all within a few minutes walk from one another. Know the scene is late! Hit the early bars after 9pm,  Strip clubs between 9-11pm, and Dance clubs after midnight until 3 am.  Here are some of the hottest playgrounds in Puerto Vallarta!
