Gay Vallarta Bar Hopping on Expedia Latin America

December 4, 2015

The Gay Vallarta Bar-Hopping Tour is the hottest ticket in La Zona Romantica (Puerto Vallarta's 'Gayborhood') for a custom-designed evening of cocktails and VIP access to the city's hot spots.

Puerto Vallarta, Mexico - Just last month, Gay Vallarta Bar Hopping Tours added two new, fun-filled tours that make it easy to enjoy the best Puerto Vallarta has to offer whether you are on-your-own tourist, local or want to meet new friends. And now, this TripAdvisor top-rated activity has become Expedia Latin America's first gay tour.

"We're thrilled Gay Vallarta Bar Hopping Tours will be Expedia's first exclusive gay tour in Latin America," said Tim Wilson, owner of Gay Vallarta Bar Hopping and GAYPV.MX, Puerto Vallarta's gay travel guide and tour promoter. In a joint announcement, Nikolay Nikolov, Destination Manager for Expedia Mexico said, "We are pleased to add these gay tours to our portfolio. It will the first gay tours added to the Expedia network in Latin America. These gay tours will complement Expedia's existing network of best LGBT-friendly hotels."

Gay Vallarta Bar Tours has partnered with The Palm and Act II Entertainment's Main Stage and Red Room Cabaret to offer dinner theater packages and a mini gay bar hop afterwards. These are offered on Expedia as well as by the staff at both theaters' box offices. These combo packages attend the 7/7:30 pm shows or the 9:30 pm shows and include dinner, admission to the show with preferred seating when available, and drinks after the show.

"You'll never have to choose whether you want to see a cabaret show or go bar hopping on a Saturday night," said Wilson. "Now you can do both!" You can browse and buy these products online at, or stop by the new box office 141 A Pulpito on the same block as La Palapa on the way to or from Los Muertos beach."

There are other gay-friendly walking tours being offered, as well. Paint the Town Red is a dinner theater for early birds visiting the 7/:30 shows at either theater and highlighting the excellent Mexican wines from Di Vino Dante. This tours offers a nightcap at one of Puerto Vallarta's gay friendly bars.

On Thursdays, an Art Tour features personal meet-and-greets with local and international artists featuring their art and discovering Mexican wine. There's even a Beach Club Hopping Tour that visits Blondie's, La Palapa, Si Seņor and Puerto Vallarta's #1 Luxury Mantamar Beach Club. For full information and booking, check out

"The Romantic Zone in Puerto Vallarta is an inclusive community," said Wilson. "Puerto Vallarta also has the largest number of gay bars, tours and activities in Mexico. Our tours reflect that diversity and popularity. The idea behind our tours is to appeal to locals and visitors alike, all along the Bay. We want our friends who go north from the airport or never come over the bridge to come south and see the real Puerto Vallarta! Now with Expedia Mexico, our job becomes a bit easier."
