PUERTO VALLARTA Gay Beaches 2018

The Romantic Zone is just a few minutes’ walk from the gay beach of “Playa Los Muertos”. This mile-long beach stretches from the Cuale river and although busy, it offers plenty of space to sunbathe in one of the many beach clubs that line the seafront.

The gay beach of Playa los Muertos is one of the most famous in Mexico and has an international reputation as a party hotspot with great beach clubs, turquoise seas and hot fit locals!

The perennial  “Blue Chairs” Resort is the original gay-beach resort and is still one of the most popular although a little faded from its former glory. The recent arrival of Sapphire Beach Club with its sexy waiters and wonderful cocktails is perfect if you want to relax and sunbathe on a full-length beach lounger.  At the end of Los Muertos you will find the recently refurbished Mantamar, a 5 star beach club with an infinity pool offering sunset views and beach side dining.

There is so much to do beyond the main gay beach at Play los Muertos. Sometimes the surf here can be quite rough so check out Playa Bucerías, with its calm waters. Or try La Lancha which is considered one of the prettiest beaches in Puerto Vallarta.

  • Getting to the gay beaches in Puerto Vallarta

    The gay beach is located at the far end of the Romantic Zone. The walk along the roads can be quite steep so many people opt to walk along the main beach from the Malecon. Taxi’s will be more than happy to take you to the beach from your hotel, even it it is just a 10 minute walk away. (between the heat and the hills its a popular option)

  • What we love!

    The beach side service at the Manatamar club is superb. We also love their poolside cabanas.

  • Stay by the beach!

    If you want to be close to the gay beach of Puerto Vallarta then staying in the Romantic Zone is your best option. Book early!
