PV Delice wishes to communicate the positive resolution of the tragic event on December 31, 2020, in relation to the sinking of one of our gay party boat cruises in Puerto Vallarta, where fortunately there were no injured lives or health problems to regret. The PV Delice Cruise company thanks the competent authorities for their support, also the crew for their great professionalism, the media for keeping the citizens and of course our clients informed in a timely manner for their trust and understanding.
Please note that many news articles are incorrectly reporting the sinking ship was chartered by Jeffrey Sanker of White Party Palm Springs. Please use this article as confirmation that Jeffrey Sanker of White Party PV did not charter the ship that sank December 31, 2020 in Puerto Vallarta. PV Delice who chartered it is a separate weekly boat cruise tour that operates in Puerto Vallarta that is in no way affiliated with Jeffrey Sanker and White Party PV.
Puerto Vallarta local event producers Christian Serrano & Dhaniel Amarillas have created a fun and frisky weekend in gay Puerto Vallarta known as “Bearadise®”. Dedicated to the creation of unique and memorable experiences, they successfully created an event aimed exclusively for the gay male market, specifically the bear community, friends and admirers.
When the COVID pandemic turned our gay travel world upside down, they were faced with the challenge of resetting and reclaiming this concept in order to fall in line with our new normal. “As a sustainable and socially responsible labor of love, we were forced to take inventory of the Bearadise® brand and determine how to evolve in a safe way during this time of ‘physical distancing’ and ‘safe socializing’ with the wellbeing of our guests as the #1 priority,” Serrano muses. Our solution? Bearadise® Beach! A full day, all-inclusive tour open air-experience designed for Bears, by Bears, but all men are welcome!”

Cheyenne Parker, American TV reality star from Ex On The Beach is ready to fire Up Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. He tells GAYPV Puerto Vallarta Gay Magazine and Travel Guide “I have been frequenting Puerto Vallarta for about 12 years now, and each time I come here, I fall more in love. Recently, I decided to move here and start a new luxury concierge business, Leisure In Life.”
Why did you chose Puerto Vallarta? What do you think is PV’s strengths versus other major gay cities, like Mykonos, Barcelona?
Compared to other travel destinations globally, I find that Puerto Vallarta provides an excellent level of customer service and luxury options that, unlike Mykonos or Barcelona, won’t break the bank. The concept of my new business here in Vallarta is simply to elevate and create unique experiences that people are not used to encountering anywhere in Mexico. Leisure In Life is a luxury concierge that offers white-glove service at low Mexican prices. Affordable and luxury don’t typically go together, but we have mastered a way to share it with travelers of all budgets.
Puerto Vallarta, Mexico’s number 1 gay travel destination, has gradually begun re-opening since June 1, 2020. Most of Puerto Vallarta gay businesses and bars closed March 17, 2020 before the Mexican government declared a national health emergency closing the beaches and the Malecon April 1, 2020. During the pandemic, many PV expats and international LGBT performers organized many fundraising events raising thousands of dollars to give back to the local community. As you can imagine, the local economy survives almost exclusively on gay tourism where locals only make a few pesos per day and rely heavily on tips.
What is open now? Some of Puerto Vallarta gay bars reopened June 25, 2020 as restaurant/bars requiring the purchase of food to consume alcohol. Live entertainment and dance floors are still closed until further notice. Many of Puerto Vallarta’s popular restaurants reopened late May 2020 with limited capacity and social distancing for inside dining. Puerto Vallarta beaches and hotel common areas and pools can reopen with 30% capacity starting June 15, 2020.
So, If you are considering a future vacation to Puerto Vallarta, here are some things to know. Gay Puerto Vallarta is waiting for you! The government has developed safety and re-opening protocols and certification processes for each and every business. See that program in Spanish here. So beyond that, many Puerto Vallarta businesses are going above and beyond what is required to make you as safe as possible while you are in town. So discover for yourself just how beyond gay friendly Puerto Vallarta can be.
