Just how gay-friendly is Puerto Vallarta, Mexico? What is gay life really like there?
Many people exaggerate about a destination being super gay only once it is visited discover it really is not. Mister BnB just produced an article about how gay friendly Tel Aviv is so we used the same criteria to produce our answer to just how gay Puerto Vallarta, Mexico is. The destination has been known as a gay mecca since the 1980’s and until recently Puerto Vallarta’s tourist season was very limited *the busiest months from November until Easter. Recently, Puerto Vallarta has been moving toward a year round busy season and its increasing appeal to LGBT travelers and residents is due to several factors.  Among them are increased national airline flights into Puerto Vallarta, the rising Mexican middle class traveling more, and the increased marketing and awareness of Puerto Vallarta as an LGBT destination.

Why the popularity of Puerto Vallarta, Mexico among the LGBT travelers?
1. Puerto Vallarta has the most well developed gay nightlife in Mexico! The first gay bar opened more than 20 years ago and today more than 25 hot gay bars and clubs are operating *some until 6 am, each unique and all located in the gayborhood.

2. Puerto Vallarta has a true Gay Zone. The Zona Romantica is a true gayborhood with all the gay bars, clubs, businesses, restaurants, and gay hotels within a safe walking distance of each other. With some rare exceptions, you never have to leave the gayborhood for anything!

3. Puerto Vallarta is for foodies! There is something for every culinary appetite and budget, from street taco stands to fine dining and everything in between.

4. Puerto Vallarta has an amazing arts and culture scene including the best gay cabaret scene in Mexico! We have three great cabaret venues producing two shows 7 nights a week from November until May…with 2 of them open year round. Also we have numerous great art galleries and artists exhibiting and living in town. Mix in festive Mexican culture and rich traditions for an amazing treat for everyone.

We were fortunate to get a few minutes with Michael Lucas, Founder and CEO of Lucasentertainment.com. He was just back from his Christmas vacation in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico.

Q: You just came back from vacationing in Puerto Vallarta Mexico where you stayed in Piñata PV Gay Hotel (www.pinatapv.com)

A: Yes, I spent Christmas at Piñata PV. I travel all over the world and can tell you that the hotel’s owners Ronnie and David are the most amazing hosts I’ve ever met. Not only did they explain to me how to get around Puerta Vallarta and booked some fantastic trips, but they actually took me and other guests out for dinner, showed us some amazing places, restaurants, galleries, nightclubs and introduced us to some cute local guys. The hotel itself is the one of a kind: they designed and built it themselves on a beautiful & quiet street in the heart of PV; it’s a modern boutique hotel.

Q: What do you think about PV? Also, we know that you collect art and crafts from all over the world and you love shopping in Mexico.

A: I love Mexico: it’s wonderfully warm and has hospitable people. I’ve traveled all over this amazing country. PV is a small place but it has so many things to do and see. One of my favorite places to visit is the botanical garden. When visiting make sure to meet its founder, Bob Price, who is an American man that fell in love with PV and built a spectacular collection of plants from all over the country there. It’s a huge area with a river, waterfall, and a beautiful restaurant on top of the hill with a magnificent view; it is also a perfect place for hiking.
