Puerto Vallarta has long been known as one of the most LGBT-friendly destinations in the world, and it is furthering its commitment by launching multiple initiatives aimed at ensuring the city continues to be a safe and welcoming.
This includes the creation of the Office of Gender Equality and sensitivity training for local businesses.
“Since its consolidation as an international tourist destination, the city of Puerto Vallarta has been praised for providing hospitality, friendliness, and high standards of quality to all its visitors,” said Puerto Vallarta Mayor Arturo Davalos Pena.
“Puerto Vallarta is today a city where we consider as primordial interest the respect for differences through a dignified, respectful and equal treatment for all people regardless of nationality, race, religion, sexual orientation and gender identity.”
