Gay Puerto Vallarta Nightlife
Most of the gay spots are on the level ground where the Rio Cuale (Cuale River) empties into Vallarta's Bandaras Bay. This area, a zone often called South Side or Zona Romantica over last few years, could just as well be called homo heights.
There is a decided shift away from the straight night spots that so dominate the malecon just north of the city center. South of the city center is where gay men and women are found everywhere. And so are their watering holes, clubs and bars.
Vallarta's primary club or disco scene, gay or straight, is pretty late in the evening. Don't plan on much happening at these clubs until well past midnight.
Earlier in the evening the happy hour circuit usually starts off at various places where the crowd gathers to watch the sunset.
Before the late night action gets going, the places to be are the smaller bars along or near Lazaro Cardenas Street, and also Olas Altas Street.
Olas Altas Street, a wonderful side-walk café strewn strip of land where the mountains are closest to the beach, is where everyone walks. Olas Altas has become something reminiscent of a Paris back street, lined with sidewalk cafés, but located in the tropics here in gay Puerto Vallarta. Along Olas Altas Street are several gay bars. All are the kind of places where you'll see activity earlier in the evening.
Starting at 10pm the disco clubs get going and they peak sometimes very late, often past 2 in the morning.
