One thing is for certain in gay Puerto Vallarta, the party only amplifies as the sun sinks below the horizon – nightlife starts late here! And because gay bars in Puerto Vallarta stay open till the early hours, party-goers typically show up at nightlife venues around midnight or later.
If you’re looking for the best places to wet your whistle, make sure to check out the area of Zona Romantica. The biggest collection of bars can be found in Olas Altas, Rio Cuale, and Lazaro Gardens. And remember, no trip to Puerto Vallarta is complete without at least peeking into the city’s boisterous strip show culture.
Those looking to get hot and bothered by some of Mexico’s best strippers should flock to Antropology or Wet Dreams, two venues well known for their risqué shows. Be warned, they aren’t for the meek!
Looking to dance yourself clean? No problem: the Puerto Vallarta gay scene rocks. Here’s our selection of the best gay clubs in Puerto Vallarta. The biggest dance floors can be found at La Noche, where go-go boys (and stunning aerial shows) greet you on the main floor of three.
When all the other bars close, the boys always head to CC Slaughters or Paco’s Ranch, two late-night venues that keep you dancing until 06:00am!
For something a little more upscale, locals and tourists alike love sipping tropical cocktails at Garbo, a cute little jazz and piano bar, as well as spilling over conversations at Apaches, a Martini bar famous for its happy hour that runs daily from 17:00pm-19:00pm.
