Mexico City is one of the world's biggest and most exciting cities and has a gay scene to match with a wide variety of bars, discos, restaurants and a vibrant street scene.

Mexico City, DF

Mexico State Morelos Puebla

The historic center of Guadalajara has lots of big open public spaces and pedestrianized streets which make for great people watching. In the evenings, the pace slows down but the crowds remain so there is almost a carnival-like atmosphere


Jalisco state has three great destinations for LGBT travelers to explore. Guadalajara is Mexico's second city and rivals even the capital for gay life and entertainment. Puerto Vallarta is the beach resort famous for its gay nightlife and gay beach. Ajijic on Lake Chapala is an emerging destination popular with LGBT artists and retirees.

Plaza Santa Cecilia, Tijuana

Baja Peninsula

From the hectic streets of Tijuana to the quiet beaches of the south, the Baja California peninsula is split up into two states, Baja California (the Northern part) and Baja California Sur (the southern part). Separating them are not only hundreds of miles of desert but completely different vibes. Tijuana and Mexicali are bustling busy cities which take advantage of their border locations and have a gritty urban feel. As you go south things slow down substantially, perking up a little again in La Paz, the capital of Baja California Sur.

Oaxaca State
