Gay Puerto Vallarta: A Perennial Favorite

Author: , January 1st, 2017

Gay Puerto Vallarta

Brought into the tourism spotlight by famous Hollywood celebrities like Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton, and offering a broad range of gay bars and nightclubs, gay-owned restaurants, hotels, stores, services, and entertainment that established the destination in a league of its own, it is no wonder Puerto Vallarta has been a favorite among LGBT travelers for decades.

In recent years, the Puerto Vallarta Tourism Board, the entity responsible for promoting the destination in the US and Canada has partnered with the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation, GMHC and the International Gay Lesbian Travel Association to promote the destination to the LGBT market.

In 2014, Puerto Vallarta became the first Mexican destination to participate in a World Pride with its Noche Alegre event during the World Pride celebrations in Toronto; and in 2015 the tourism board became the first destination to sponsor the Human Rights Campaign on a national level.

It boasts awesome ocean and mountain views directly over the building in front of it (which buffers it from much of the beach noise), and sweeping west-facing dramatic views of all of Banderas Bay. The sunsets are amazing, as is the view from two private balconies.

It is also a corner unit with great city night views from all rooms. There is a lushly landscaped patio with extra large sliding glass doors which open to the sea. There are constant breezes, great cross ventilation and the sound/lull of the waves crashing on the beach nearby.

It is within walking distance (four short flights of steps down to lower garden gate; two flights up to top entrance/arrival lobby/panoramic shared terrace and pool) to shops, restaurants, and nightclubs in the heart of Viejo Vallarta. Repeat guests keep coming back because of the special quiet location, the dramatic views, and romanticism.
