Are you looking to stay fit and work out on your gay vacation to Puerto Vallarta? Maybe you are staying in a vacation rental or condo outside the gay zone. Where Are the best Gyms In Puerto Vallarta? We are going to give you the ultimate guide for all the gyms located outside the zona romantica. If you are looking for the gay gyms located in the gay zone, read our insider’s guide to those gyms here. Some handy things to know when you are looking for gyms are: location, do they have air-conditioning (as PV in the summer can be very hot and humid for a work-out without it), do they charge a membership fee, bi-lingual staff if you don’t speak Spanish, and do you need a trainer? Another tip: Be sure to check many of the new puerto vallarta condos for sale as some have their own private gyms, not open to the public. The information in this guide is accurate at the time of publishing but always check the specific gym for the latest updates, including COVID-19 procedures affecting current rules and policies.

Yes, Puerto Vallarta did have a Gold’s Gym until it closed in 2016. Unfortunately it was not located in the gay zone so it was not popular among short term tourists. The history of Gold’s in Puerto Vallarta began October 24, 2002 (one day before Hurricane Kena hit PV). The gym opened with 45 cardio machines to having more than 120 machines with 14 tons of free weight at its peak. Some reports indicate it had 1800 members and it sponsored several annual events in Puerto Vallarta including;
- April Before and After challenge
- October Mr. Gold’s (rewarding the best body)
- November Anniversary Celebration
