Puerto Vallarta's Zona Romantica

It’s always Pride in Mexico’s Ptown

The scene is palm-tree adorned with sandy beaches - where the sun sets in the west, late into the evening, over beautiful mountains – providing the perfect light for those beach pics. What sets it apart is its fun loving (and looking for fun) people. Whether it’s Mexican families from all over meeting together for the holidays or packs of friends from Guadalajara – they are smiling, open and ready to share in your vacation. And share they will with tourists from the DF to DC, Los Angeles to London, and Vancouver to Venezuela all ready for fun and relaxation. Puerto Vallarta provides an escape - and you must stay in the Zona Romantic, a gay ghetto bursting with boys from all of the Americas’ biggest cities (and even Europe!). It’s always Pride in PV.

Sitting on a beach nearly naked is simply no my go-to option now – especially when it’s cool where I live in NYC. But one major help is also that this trip, once the flight is booked (as early as possible) can be very inexpensive. Both of my adventures fully cost about $1000 each (all inclusive) for nearly a week – if you go with a friend or a group this is very doable. If you wanna be super gay & spend a bit more – or daddy is paying – be sure to stay at the Mantamar Beach Club. Whether or not you stay, I’m sure you’ll find your way into the pool alongside the beach.
