Puerto Vallarta is an extremely popular destination for American and Canadian tourists. Particularly from the west coast, where flights to this beachside resort are cheap and quick. It’s generally assumed that Puerto Vallarta is a typical gringolandia, where tourists outnumber locals. This isn’t entirely true. Puerto Vallarta is an extremely popular vacation destination with people from Guadalajara, as well as the Bajio region of Mexico. While it has it’s share of pretty women, keep in mind that this is a hugely popular gay travel destination, so you’re likely to see men outnumber women in a pretty big way.
DATING IN PUERTO VALLARTA
Pretty darn good! It’s a beach town. People come to have fun and forget who they are. What they might not do in their home city, they’ll do here. Let loose and whatnot.

WOMEN IN PUERTO VALLARTA
Women in Puerto Vallarta are fairly good looking on the whole! Foreign tourists too — many come here from Guadalajara. I’d say the best looking girls here will be those that are vacationing from another part of Mexico. To hit on these girls, you’ll want to know a few words of Spanish. As far as beach destinations go, local women are prettier in Mazatlan, but the talent isn’t horrible here.

RENT AN APARTMENT IN PUERTO VALLARTA
$500. The peso is low right now. You should be able to snag something a few blocks from the beach for about $500.
NIGHTLIFE IN PUERTO VALLARTA
Typical of a vacation spot. Big, cookie-cutter nightclubs. If there are some cool, hidden local bars and clubs, I haven’t found them. You’re best to go to something near the main strip and hit on the groups of Mexican girls who roll into town on vacation for a good time.

I’ve seen gringos working here. As waiters, tour guides etc. I don’t know how much money they make. Probably close to none. Best to vacation here rather than try to carve out a life for yourself.
Not bad. Not as Americanized as Cancun. You can still see the remains of an actual Mexican city that was likely once charming. 60 years ago or so. As far as vacation spots go, this isn’t the best or worst. My vote for best goes to Mazatlan, where you can find fewer foreign tourists and more Mexicans ones. Particularly Mexican girls from Sinaloa. This is a good thing. Check out Puerto Vallarta if you find a cheap flight or bus and/or a great deal on a hotel. I wouldn’t go out of my way to visit, but it’s a decent enough time if you stay for a week or so.
