The Importance of the LGBTQ Community in the Vallarta Real Estate Market

Puerto Vallarta has been a vacation favorite for the LGBTQ community for decades. Named the “gay beach capital of Mexico” and the first city in Mexico to earn the “Gay Travel Approved” distinction from the major travel website,, Puerto Vallarta has a lot to offer the LGBTQ community.

First, of course, is our beautiful destination, appreciated by any traveler, but here in Puerto Vallarta, there are tours, hotels, nightlife, shopping and beach clubs that are specifically tailored to the LGBTQ community. Traditionally, the Romantic Zone of Puerto Vallarta is the major hub for LGBTQ tourism and businesses, but throughout the city, local “Vallartense” welcome LGBTQ visitors as they do all visitors to our destination – with a warm, friendly smile and a helpful approach.

So, it is certainly no surprise that this segment of the tourism sector has made a major impact on the Puerto Vallarta real estate market. LBGTQ buyers are one of the largest demographics for buying a condo or home in Puerto Vallarta. With a savvy eye on return on investment, LGBTQ buyers were early to recognize the ease of maximizing the income potential of owning a second home in Puerto Vallarta by listing it as a vacation rental when not in personal use. And buying a retirement home in Puerto Vallarta is a top lifestyle goal for many in the community, particularly in the Romantic Zone, Conchas Chinas and Amapas, and the LGBTQ homeowners have been a large part in reviving the beautiful neighborhood of Gaviotas to its former prestige.
