The popular gay resort community of Puerto Vallarta has formed a gay men's chorus - in fact, it became the first such choral group in Latin America to perform at GALA Choruses Festival this past summer in Denver. More than 50 singers make up the Puerto Vallarta Men's Chorus, which recently announced plans for a holiday concert at the striking Teatro Vallarta performance center. The concert, "Alegrķa!", takes place during the prime of Christmas season, on Wednesday, December 19. You can purchase tickets at the Teatro Vallarta website.
Puerto Vallarta, with its atmospheric, lively Zona Romantica neighborhood, has steadily evolved into one of the top tropical LGBT destinations in the world, offering great value, great food and nightlife (be sure to check out the fabulous gay disco, Club Manana), and a track record for low crime. It's also home to a number of excellent, gay-friendly hotels. A particular favorite, although it's not on the water but rather on a lush hillside just a 15-minute walk away from the gay beach, is Casa Cupula.
