Beautiful facility and stunning location. The staff was extraordinarily courteous, friendly, professional and proactive. Gustavo led a great team. The views are pristine and the pools are really nice. they were very happy to give free rides into Puerto Vallarta central (about 6 hilly blocks away). ...
I like the atmosphere I like being around all the other key people take a couple hours it was a lot of fun and however is the one thing I didn’t like was that when I got there my room was a double bed room or a room with two queen beds and I wanted one king bed but we didn’t arrive until 1130 at ...
Located in the Pacific state of Jalisco, sandwiched between mountains and gorgeous Banderas Bay, P.V. attracts not only a swath of gay and lesbian American and European travelers, but also its fair share of queer Mexicans as well. Puerto Vallarta has over a dozen LGBT hotels, rentals and guesthouses, a large selection of gay bars and clubs, a world famous gay beach (“Blue Chairs” and its neighbor, “Green Chairs”), gay boat trips, and lots of fine dining to boot. Most of the gay and lesbian infrastructure is in the Zona Romantica (also called the “South Side”). The city is small but sophisticated, with a huge art gallery scene and one of the most gay-positive vibes in Latin America. Welcome to coastal Mexico’s sun-drenched queer mecca.
More modern hotel and shopping areas (like Nuevo Vallarta) have arisen north and south of the cobblestone old town, allowing the area to retain much of its colonial charm. Malecon (the town’s main waterfront street) presents sculptures in an outdoor palm-lined art walk, and galleries outnumber churches. Despite the onslaught of timeshares and ex-pats who now call the city home, Vallarta still feels authentically Mexico. You can also take side trips to the natural hot springs in the mountains surrounding the bay, and there are tours for swimming with dolphins as well.
1. Choose the right beach for you.
If the scene at Blue Chairs is simply too much, don’t worry: more than 26 miles of beaches line the Bay of Banderas. If you’re looking for a gay nude beach, board the raunchy Wet and Wild Gay Cruise which includes a detour at a private beach where you can strip down.
2. Avoid September.
Although P.V. is always warm, the humidity, rain and temperatures are worst during September.
3. Join gay excursions.
No need to bump Speedos with straight tourists when going on excursions: Both Diana’s Tours & Wet Wild Gay Cruise offer LGBT boat trips.
