If you are a night owl and love the funtabulous late hours, Puerto Vallarta can be a party capital. There is something for everyone of all different walks of life. Here are some of our favorite suggestions for alternative nightlife in Puerto Vallarta.
Act II Entertainment
Located on the corner of Basilio Badillo and Insurgentes streets, this theater offers three venues to suit all theater lovers’ demands. Enjoy a Broadway show, live music, plays or drag shows. It’s all fun and make sure to stop and visit their onsite piano bar to have a before or after-show cocktail.
If you love to dance cumbia or salsa, JB is located in the hotel zone. It is open until the wee hours and offers great music (sometimes live) to dance the night away. Don’t worry if you don’t have a partner, you are sure to find one at JB. If you arrive early, you will find dance lessons too.
If you like to bar hop, the Puerto Vallarta malecon is the perfect place to jump from place to place enjoying a cocktail in numerous bars and discos. If you have the late night munchies, there are tacos available on every corner to lower the hangover that is yet to come.
Strolling through downtown south you will find the Romantic Zone and bustling Olas Altas street. Grab a beer or jumbo margarita in one of the numerous casual bars and wander down to Los Muertos Pier at night which is quite a magical spectacle to be seen.
If you love the disco environment there are a dozen beautiful discos to be discovered in Puerto Vallarta open till sunrise: Mandala, Strana, X Tine or La Santa.
If you are drinking and have rented a vehicle, remember that driving under the influence is controlled very heavily in Mexico with alcohol meters throughout the town. Take a taxi and remember to have fun!
