Endra and Mary-Ann do such a good job welcoming old friends back. Andres, Freddy and Chuy are lovely guys. This is one of the great bars of the world - I come from England to be here! Gracias amigos!

Great burgers, WIFI - a gathering place for afternoons in sunny Puerto Vallarta. Apache's is right in the centre of everything - Upstairs on Olas Altas.

Always good!! Been a few times with friends. Usually drink white wine. It's cold and $45 pesos. It draws a pretty good crowd for happy hour. There are always characters around and it seems to be the planner bar for most 40+ gay men. It's a great meeting place. Central on olas Altas and has a great outdoor seating space

We've been coming to Apache's for at least 12 years (we've lost count). Endra and Mary Ann are as delightful as ever. With so many of our favorite bars, nightclubs, and restaurants gone, Apaches is a wonderful reminder of all the years of great times in Vallarta. This little gem is always one of our regular haunts on our (almost)... More

We stopped by Apache's for drink after dinner one night during our two week vacation. There were a total of 3 couples. We were all welcomed equally, and e saw the welcome feeling with all patrons. Martinis were delicious, and everyone was having tons of fun. We will definitely stop by on our next trip to PV

All gay couples need to put this spot on the agenda. They are located a block from the Boating Pier on Olas Atlas street, across... More
