PUERTO VALLARTA Gay Saunas & Cruising 2018

With more than 500,000 gay visitors each year to Puerto Vallarta, the Romantic Zone really is “romantic”. From the daytime longing looks at Los Muertos beach to the the nighttime cruising along the Malecon, there are plenty of places to meet handsome guys looking for fun.

Gay Cruising is part and parcel of every day life in Puerto Vallarta. It begins during the day at Playa Los Meurtos, where guys check out the latest hunk in Andrew Christian trunks! Just beyond Los Muertos you will find, Playa Conchas Chinas, popular with those seeing a more intimate rendezvous among the shallow outcrops. It is also much less touristy and free from the many beach hawkers selling everything from Oysters to Cigars.

The Spartacus Spa, Puerto Vallarta

The Spartacus Spa is Puerto Vallarta’s largest crusing area. It is clean and modern and is spread out over seaveral floors with a rooftop pool, steam room, large dark room, cruising area and private cabins. Staff are friendly and will give you a tour of the facilities. Depending on the time of year the early afternoons can be a little quiet. The busiest time is when local guys finish work so post 7pm you will find it extra busy.

Tip: Make sure you bring our ID with you to enter, no matter how old. Also bring your own flip flops! Post work (7pm to 9pm is the busiest time)

The Sauna is located just opposite the main gay strip, close to the bars and clubs on 244 Lazaro Cardenas, 48380, Puerto Vallarta.

Another firm favourite is Vallarta Cora Hotel, Puerto Vallarta. (further details below).

  • Hustler Bars

    Antropology and Wet Dreams are the two bars where you can meet a hot muscled Latino and get to play with him, for a fee of course! The dancers/strippers are not shy so you can see what’s on offer. Private dances are available. Agree your fee beforehand. You can also arrange to meet a boy after! Remember hotels require ID for guests so many guys prefer renting condos/apartments.

  • Prostitution

    Prostitution is legal in Mexico. Many guys will work off social media apps such as Grindr or Hornet. Remember to lock your valuables away before inviting anyone around and let people know where you are going before meeting anyone in Puerto Vallarta.
