Gay Pride March 2017 in Tepic

LGBT places for Tepic, Nuevo Vallarta, Sayulia, San Pancho, Bucerias, San Blas

Esa página está disponible también en español.

The state capital and largest city of Nayarit State, Tepic has a small but active gay scene and a well established annual pride march. Discrete cruising can be found at the two (mixed) bathhouses and the Plaza Principal.

There are significant LGBT populations living in Nuevo Vallarta and in other beach towns of the Nayarit Rivierra such as Sayulita, Bucerias, San Blas and San Pancho (San Francisco). These places have access to the huge gay scene in nearby Puerto Vallarta but are quieter and there aren't any particular gay nightspots there.

Por casualidad pasamos por Bucerias y encontramos de casualidad el restaurante Mezzogiorno, en el centro de Bucerias en la playa. La comida una deli... la vista espectacular y el servicio muy bueno. Muchos de los meseros eran lgbt y muy simpaticos todos, yo diria un restaruante muy muy gay friendly. Desde entonces regresamos siempre cuando vamos a Puerto VAlalrta.
