Gay vacations Puerto Vallarta

Puerto Vallarta

Puerto Vallarta is one of the most popular tourist spots in Mexico, especially for American travellers. It’s also one of the top LGBT+ destinations in Latin America.

At a glance

Surrounded by the Sierra Madre mountains, Puerto Vallarta is protected from storms: the vast mountains essentially consume the storms before they arrive in the city.

It’s also one of the safest places to travel in Mexico. With so many wealthy North American ex-pats in town, Puerto Vallarta is also one of the most expensive places in Mexico. It’s not as expensive as New York though.

The mile-long malecón is the heart of Puerto Vallarta. Be sure to take a stroll down the waterfront and see the charming shops and long stretch of beach. You’ll also see the famous Puerto Vallarta sign at the end of the malecón.

LGBT rights in Puerto Vallarta

A gay-friendly destination, Mexico hosts many same-sex weddings and is a great destination for gay honeymoons. You can have a full legal ceremony as a same-sex couple. You could also opt for a symbolic ceremony and have the legal proceedings done back home. Combining your wedding and honeymoon in Mexico is also a great option.
