Puerto Vallarta Nightlife

Puerto Vallarta "El Centro" Bar Tour Adventure


This Puerto Vallarta bar tour  will introduce you to nearly all pubs, bars, dance clubs (25+-) in the core entertainment zone of Historic El Centro area.  (From the Plaza Armas to McDonalds on the Malecon. (Hetersexual)

We will enter most of the establishments having the opportunity to dance, sing karaoke, laugh, people watch.   (The leader will start you off with your first shot of the night and will treat everyone to at least two more shots and two additional drinks or beers during the evening.) 

We will be visiting during the early part of the night (most establishments to not get full till after 11 PM) but this gives us the opportunity for personal attention and get to meet many bartenders, managers, owners, and regulars.  By the end of this tour you will have made many future friends.   

Wear comfortable shoes and dress comfortably (not necessarily fashionable) as this is still a walking adventure and we will walk 10-15 blocks.  Time is short at each bar as we only have 3 hours to visit around 25 bars which equates to 7 minutes per bar - and we still have to walk between each bar.  

We recommend taking this adventure at the beginning of your Puerto Vallarta trip so you will know early on which clubs and bars match your personality and don't waste time on venues not to your liking.  


  • Walking Difficulty: Easy (although watch for cracked or broken sidewalks)
