LGBT places for Acapulco, Chilpancingo, Ixtapa, Zihuatanejo

Esa página está disponible también en español.

The gay scene in Acapulco is in significant flux of late. What once was a favorite playground of both Chilangos (from Mexico City) and foreigners has slowed down and a number of LGBT establishments have closed as a result. But their remains a significant and lively gay scene with a healthy number of places to go out, to stay and still lots of people hanging at the gay beach.

Elsewhere in Guerrero state the scene is a little quieter for nightlife but in the resort towns of Ixtapa and Zihuatanejo you'll find a fair number of tourists, expats and locals but reliable gathering places are scarce. The state capital of Chilpancingo has a substantial gay community and organizes a lively pride parade each year but few regular places to go out.

    The section of Playa Condesa below Beto's Condesa restaurant and bar on the Costera Alemán is Acapulco's gay beach, extending from the area known as "Las Piedras" eastward to the end of the beach. The water can sometimes be too choppy for real swimming, but it is fine for wading. There is some discreet cruising among the rocky section.
