The gay, boutique, Hotel Mercurio has been welcoming the LGBTQ community for almost 20 years. The owner prides himself on having created an atmosphere of friendliness and camaraderie, where many of his guests become regulars, year after year, and they soon become friends.

The most rewarding vacations help you leave all worries behind, even if it’s just for a few days. The south area of downtown Puerto Vallarta and the world famous Lady of Guadalupe church is called Zona Romantica. It is one of the best gay friendly venues in Mexico. It lures travelers from all over the world and continues to grow in popularity.

The Perfect Place to Get Lost in Your Thougths

There's something inherently romantic about a couple’s retreat at the ocean. Los Muertos beach is one of the most famous gay beaches in the world and you can enjoy the warm sun beating down on your skin, clear, blue ocean waters and sand between your toes. There’s nothing like a stunning sunset to set the mood.

No matter the hour, make time for the beach. You can casually stroll for hours or liven things up by hitting the latest attraction, the Sapphire Ocean Club. This is a great option where there’s a gay vibe and you can be pampered without being surrounded by rowdy men and party music. Of course if you are in the mood for something more lively there are loud venues on the southern end of the beach, too.

If you just can’t stand sand getting lodged just about everywhere, there are pool parties. Mantamar Beach Club Bar & Sushi and the Pool Club at Casa Cupola are open daily. Plus there is the famous Sunday Beers, Boys and Burgers Party at Hotel Mercurio.

Not happy with your swimsuit? Check out Mercurio Swim for high quality and limited production suits. A perfect fit awaits. They have a team of talented garment makers that have created apparel which is stylish, well fitting and durable. Take some time to wander aimlessly along the cobbled streets with no destination in mind. You never know what treasure you will find.

There is quite a variety of shops and boutiques in Puerto Vallarta. Ranging from Mexican handicrafts and antiques, to sterling silver jewelry, to traditional clothing and anything else you could want. There are close to 50 art galleries, which is a fairly large number for a city this size, which has a rich history of promoting art and artists, with many famous artists living in the area. The light is said to be perfect almost year round.

Also a Gastronomic Paradise

All those activities will work up an appetite and a mouthwatering journey awaits in Puerto Vallarta. There are around 500 restaurants in the area including high end establishments, food carts and everything in between. Splurge on an evening at The Iguana Restaurant & Tequila Bar, where you can sample a wide array of top flight tequilas and mezcals along with indulging in a culinary extravaganza. There are many mid-range venues that serve Mexican favorites, all types of seafood and plenty of world class cuisine that will make any foodie drool. Spend at least one evening on the beach diving into a romantic, sunset dinner.

Maximize the time you have together to relax, cozy up with one another, take in the beauty and appreciate the tropical atmosphere. Romance is one thing that we can never get enough of and Puerto Vallarta provides the spark.

Stay Awesome, stay fabulous!
