When you’re opening a box of decadent Godiva or a pint of delicious vanilla ice cream, it’s easy to forget that your dessert has a history of almost 4,000 years. Cultivated by the Mayans and the Aztecs, the cacao bean and vanilla plant both have their origins in Mexico. Over the years they have seen many different forms: from drinks to bars, from extracts to synthetics. On this tour, you’ll get a chance to explore chocolate and vanilla treats you’ve never even conceived of… and some old favorites, too!

Every year Puerto Vallarta seems to become more popular as a gay vacation
spot. With a great climate, beautiful ocean bay, beaches, mountains and lush
tropical jungle as the setting, Puerto Vallarta is a small city devoted to
serving the visiting traveler. While retaining much of its old style Mexican
charm, Vallarta has over the years built up the infrastructure of a modern
resort community. Internet cafes, ATM machines, fine restaurants,
excellent airport, modern medical services, drinkable water supply, and a
safe, tolerant environment are now all part of the Vallarta scene. So visiting
a tropical paradise doesn't have to be a choice between a modern but sterile
place or the alternative of a quaint but primitive existence.
Puerto Vallarta has all the quaintness, without compromising
on any of the modern conveniences.
Whether you're just considering a vacation here, someone who has just
visited once before, or a virtual resident who comes every winter for months
at a time, you'll find plenty of useful information here. Vallarta now
has over a dozen hotels, guesthouses, and bed and breakfasts that cater to
our community, several different gay bars and gay clubs, a world famous gay
beach, great gay trips on boats, special tours including evenings out at
natural hot springs, and some great restaurants. The gay scene in Vallarta
runs the gamut, from gay beach bums, to the A-list couples who winter here
and entertain themselves and their friends in high style.
Vallarta is popular with all sorts of gay men and women from many places
around the globe. Younger and older, European and from the Americas or Australia, the cosmopolitan mix is part of what makes this an exciting place to see and be seen. And in case you're worried that this means not meeting some beautiful Mexicans, rest assured that many "friends of Dorothy" from Vallarta
and from the larger cities within Mexico, especially Guadalajara, also come
here to relax on our famous beaches and grace our clubs at night.
Vallarta is in the tropics, on the Pacific Ocean side of Mexico, tucked into
a mountainous coastal area. We're located on one of the largest, deepest,
and most stunning natural bays in the world, Bahia de Banderas, which supports
almost any form of water recreation imaginable. This bay is where the humpback whales come every winter, where dolphins nest year round, and deep sea fishing is excellent. The winds are great here for sailing. Surfing is good on the north coast of the bay. And it isn't overrun with development. Almost thirty miles of the bay's coast is completely inaccessible by road and therefore pristine and devoid of development. The mountains surrounding the bay are lush with tropical jungle, the beaches in some areas are framed by these
mountains that come right down to the water's edge, and, best of all, none
of it is ruined by pollution or any industrial ugliness. In Puerto Vallarta
the air is clean, the sun shines without rain almost all winter long, and the
sunsets - well, they're as spectacular as you could possibly ask for.
