Puerto Vallarta - Hottest Gay Destination All Round Year in Mexico


Gay travellers around the world have come from far and wide to Puerto Vallarta! It is, usually, filled with gay men from North America but it is welcome to all. When you’re ready to feel the Latin Pride in Mexico, this is the place to visit. What’s incredible about Mexico is its tolerance towards the LGBTQIA+ community. Gay marriage was legalized in 2016 as well! There are tons of protections for gay people around the country that helps fight discrimination. Similar to many other countries, you are always going to have conservative districts to avoid, but in Puerto Vallarta, you are free to be who you are!

When you’re in Puerto Vallarta, the gayest district you need to visit is Zona Romantica. Even the name sounds gay! It is packed with incredible gay clubs and bars for any type of gay traveller. Most of the tourists in the LGBTQIA+ community seem to visit Playa de los Muertos. What is that exactly? Well, it is the gayest beach in Puerto Vallarta. It is known as one of the most popular gay beaches in the country. It is lined with gay beach clubs, bars, and there are tons of resorts and accommodations around that cater to the gay community.

You can even travel to the incredibly luxurious Punta de Mita. It’s a peninsula with two very high-end resorts that will tug at your gay heartstrings. It’s, definitely, worth the trip. Believe me, there are tons of things to do and things to see in Puerto Vallarta but I would say it really is a great party place for those gay travellers who are looking to get wild and crazy. So, if this is the style of gay holidays you’re looking for, Puerto Vallarta is a must-visit!

Before we book a holiday or a flight, check if we need a holiday visa or a transit visa (if we're not sure), just to have as little as possible unpleasant situation. The best you can check is on your embassy ( the origin of your passport), but other sites will also give you some ideas of how strong your passport is for free visa traveling; please check here.

Puerto Vallarta has one main airport that is deemed the most popular. There are other airports in the surrounding towns, but I wouldn’t recommend heading to those. This main airport is the best way to get in and out of Puerto Vallarta, Mexico.

1. Puerto Vallarta International Airport

- The airport is also known as Licenciado Gustavo Diaz Ordaz International Airport

- It is the closest airport to Downtown Puerto Vallarta, around 10 to 15 minutes

- Take the bus titled “Centro” from the airport to Downtown

- You can always take a taxi but it will be far more expensive than the bus

Below are some of the best airlines which connect Europe to the world:

1. British Airways - U.K National Airline

2. Air France- National French Airline
