For entertainment, you can take a cruise or an organized gay excursion to Boana Horseback Riding, a ranch north of Puerto Vallarta. Again, we recommend using the services of Atlantis Gay Cruise.

Some favorite nightclubs are CC Slaughters PV, Antro Enter with electronic music, and Paco’s Ranch.

The second-largest city in Mexico, it is a perfect place for gay tourism, to the point of being considered the “San Francisco” of the country. You can stroll along Chapultepec Avenue, where numerous restaurants, bars, and nightclubs exist. A place not to be missed is La Décima Letra, a bookstore specializing in gay, bisexual, transgender, and erotic themes.

For lodging, you can visit Casa Alebrijes, a quaint and pleasant boutique hotel located in the gay area of the city.

5. Acapulco

This destination offers natural attractions and excellent beaches. The gay beach is at the end of the Costera Miguel Aleman, between Beto’s restaurant and the Hotel Condesa.

Acapulco’s nightlife is one of the best in the country, and you will find numerous gay bars and discos. Among them are Cabaretito Beach and Demas Factory with shows; Pink, with electronic music; and Prince, a disco for men.

If you want to take this trip and enjoy any of these destinations, we recommend you find out what kind of travel document you need. For example, you may need a Mexico Tourist Card.

This travel document is required for most visitors to enter Mexico for tourist purposes. The Tourist Card is not officially a Mexican visa and does not replace it in any way.

Applying for your Mexico Tourist Card is simple, straightforward, and entirely online. For more information, you can write to iVisa experts to clarify your doubts.

Find out if your nationality also needs a visa to process that document simultaneously. Remember that some records take longer; applying for them in advance is crucial.
