Gay Travel to Puerto Vallarta – Saftey and Warnings
Unless you were under a rock the last few years, you could not help but hear how
dangerous parts of Mexico has become, and yes, it’s true drug wars have
escalated violence in parts of Mexico. “Collateral damage” the news calls it – which really means that innocent people
have been robbed, hurt or killed.
Ciudad Juarez and Chihuahua City, is of special concern.
But for Puerto Vallarta – There is no recommendation
against travel to Guadalajara and Puerto
Vallarta. There is also no recommendation against travel on principal
Jalisco between Guadalajara including the
portions that cross in to the southern portions of the state of Nayarit.
Puerto Vallarta is the most visited gay destination in Mexico. It is especially popular with residents from the San Francisco Bay Area.
Is it safe to travel to Puerto Vallarta?
In a word, the answer is yes, it is safe to travel to Puerto
Vallarta. PV is part of the very diverse and large Mexican state of
Jalisco. Some news outlets have incorrectly reported that the US State
Department is warning against all travel to Jalisco.
Puerto Vallarta’s Tourism Board has commissioned a study from the security consulting firm Thomas Dale and Associates (TDA).
The firm found that “the number of negative events involving foreigners
or non‐foreigners is fractional compared to the large ex‐pat resident
population and the millions of visitors that come to vacation each year
in Puerto Vallarta.”
