Beyond the Brochures: The Unfiltered Gay Guide To Puerto Vallarta
The Real Tea That You Won't Find In The Guidebooks
This started as a living doc I shared with friends traveling to Puerto Vallarta since I moved back to NYC in June 2022. It will henceforth be a living article by way of the comments that people would like to leave and the occasional updates that I will make after going back to visit.
I had the experience of living in Puerto Vallarta for ten months, from August 2021 - June 2022, and over my time there, I developed a keen lay of the land that allowed me to put together this guide. Here, you will find my suggestions partially derived from the faqs of the many friends who came to stay with me during my time in one of Mexico’s most popular gay getaway destinations. The answer to the most frequently asked question I want to get out of the way is…
YES YOU CAN DOUCHE WITH WATER IN PUERTO VALLARTA!
It’s one of the few places in Mexico where it’s safe. But if you have a bougie coochie or are worried about your sensitive stomach, pack these (not sponsored, but if you leave a review, mention The Atomik Factory).
As you can see, this will be different from your typical guide to Puerto Vallarta. You’re about to get the full tea on nightlife, hookups, sourcing of extracurriculars 🐴, and the essential things you need to know like transportation, where to see shows, best places to eat, and safety tips.
