Puerto Vallarta is one of the best cities in Mexico for LGBTQ+ travelers. It’s widely considered a safe place to visit for gay travelers and is a mecca of gay bars, buzzing nightclubs, and gay friendly hotels.

To compliment your time here, you’ll want an equally fantastic hotel. From luxury gay resorts to small boutiques in the city center, here are the best gay hotels in Puerto Vallarta.

Zona Romantica is the official Gaybourhood of Puerto Vallarta, where you’ll find plenty of gay bars, gay nightclubs, trendy cocktails bars, never-ending fiestas, and Spartacus – Puerto Vallarta’s only strictly men’s sauna. If you want to be in the heart of the action, this is the best place to stay.

But if you’re dreaming of an all-inclusive, most are located outside of the city center. No worries though, as transportation is very affordable, so you can easily stay in an all-inclusive and still come into town to party to your heart’s desire.
