|:: Gay Guide Puerto Vallarta ::|
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.
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 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, here 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.
Gay Guide Vallarta is a comprehensive online guide for the gay or lesbian visitor. You'll find described all the gay attractions, hotels, bars and discos, as well as other useful information for planning your visit. We concentrate on the gay angle missing in all the mainstream online guides for Puerto Vallarta. Gay Guide Vallarta also publishes the free gay map book found in all the best gay venues of Puerto Vallarta. The Gay Guide Vallarta website is supported by the advertisers of the Gay Guide Vallarta map and guidebook.
|:: SETAC - Centro Comunitario - GLBT Puerto Vallarta ::|
Welcome to SETAC
Puerto Vallarta is a unique and special place for many people, especially for those who are discriminated against and rejected in the whole country for their sexual orientation and for those who seek the opportunity to live openly in an atmosphere of acceptance and understanding. Puerto Vallarta has hosted this community for many years, and it was for this reason that the need arose for the creation of the first (GLBT) Community Center in all of Mexico, here in Puerto Vallarta.
Many young arrive unprepared, trying to find a job or a productive activity and, in addition to the ignorance, stigma, and discrimination, they are subject to harassment, making their survival even more difficult, so youth in particular are more vulnerable to engaging in activities such as drinking, alcoholism, drug use, and prostitution which for them are the only ways to survive; putting them at risk of sexually transmitted diseases such as HIV.
SETAC was formed primarily to support these people.
