This criminal operation should be shut down. I went in for a few drinks, they said the drinks would be 700 pesos, and then a second order of 300 pesos.

When they brought the bill, they charged me in USD, over 1000 bucks. I didn't catch it at the time. Scum bags. Avoid at all costs.

Don’t go to anywhere near La Vaquita is all I’m saying. I will burn them on every social media I come I cntact with because they WILL double and if they can triple charge you. They will screw you over any way they can. I will post this in every FB comment and every Google/Trip Advisor review. Anything I can find I will post this just so no one else gets triple screwed like I did. They will double/triple charge and make sure Amounts are slightly different so you have problems with your bank.

I can't say it was totally bad but it wouldn't be the first stop on the club scene tour. We went earlier in the evening so no on was there. The music was ok. I didn't like how I felt pressured to buy drinks or get a booth. I say if you must go, go quickly, take your photos and leave.

Me my friend logan and then are two friends that are girls went to la vaquita because some friends invited us. It was wet t shirt night though and non of us are really into that. When it came time to for the contest we all started to leave Jessika and Shannon our two friends went to the rest room and never came out. my friend logan and i left to look for them but could not find them anywhere. At 4:00am they arrived at our hotel unconscious and defiantly drugged. puking black all over the hotel with very dilated eyes. The club asked them before the contest if they wanted a shot. They gave it to them in the security office and after that they felt extremely weird. They forced them on stage as they were stumbling and had them take off there clothes into white tee shirts. They forced them to make out with several girls and would not let them get off the stage even when they tried. Along with that they forced them to continuously drink. Do not go here. They are just looking to get it in with foreign white girls. Be safe whenever your in PV. <3

My 21 year old son just returned from PV with quite a story that I feel that I must share with fellow travelers. (Writing reviews is not his thing) This is where the problem started. He ordered a beer at the bar and gave the bartender a 500 Peso note-the only money in his pocket, so no mistake was made on his part. The bartender left the bar area and was gone for a good amount of time while my son patiently waited for his change. When he finally returned, my son asked him for his change. The bartender emphatically told my my son had only given him a 50 Peso note. Several other staff then appeared out of nowhere insisting that they had seen the transaction and backed up the bartenders version of the story. According to my son, none of these witnesses were anywhere near when he gave the bartender payment for his drink.

My son was helpless and there wasn't a dang thing he could do. I guess he learned a very expensive lesson. I'm hoping that Trip Advisor readers will take note that these kind of scams are occurring in this establishment.

It gets a lot of attention since they invite pretty girls to use the swing, once inside you realize everybody is sitting like in a restaurant, no action going on here. They're also famous for making the prices as they go, people end up paying $100 for 2 shots. They also coerce you to consume, they kicked me out for not buying another drink. Avoid, avoid!

Normally, I always treated excessively negative reviews on Trip advisor as outliers. I'm just telling to myself that these people were particularly frustrated and do not represent a target audience.

So for the first time in my life I joined this club and shall emit a review almost exclusively negatively of La Vaquita PuertoVallarta.

This place is a scam. People at the entrance will bribe you to enter a place where the menus have no prices displayed. The price of the glasses should vary depending on the mood of the server. The music is really too loud and we're young and went to every EDM festivals.

Two shooters for $ 53... We are Canadians where the best bars do not exceed $ 15 per shooter and here in Puerto Vallarta in a very modest bar, they pushed this limit without even notifying us. What sneaky way of doing business ...

In lieu of a missing La Vaquita Playa del Carmen, I write this here, as I believe it is the same company that runs them both.

Went there with family and friends in November, and was threatened when I refused to leave 20% tip! We had a few drinks, music was ok and the atmosphere okay. When leaving, the lady that came with the credit card terminal asked me how much tip I would like to add, I said 10%.

Her response was "for your own security, we recommend customers to add 20%".

And no, it wasn't a misunderstanding, as I am Mexican and we spoke Spanish. I ended up paying a 20% tip, but will NEVER EVER visit this place again.

BEWARE, place is full of crooks & criminals!

They have employees outside their doors trying to get American groups in. We asked the lady employee outside how much they would charge us for a bottle, the employee gave us a good price. It was significantly lower the average in the nearby clubs which we thought was was rare so we all kept confirming the price with her. They didn’t charge us upfront for the bottle which we should have insisted on. We go in the club they bring us our bottle. Once we finished our bottle they try and sell us another which we didn’t buy. At that point the waitress brings us our bill witch was twice as much as the agreed upon price that their employee promised us outside. The waitress then calls her manager to our table. He then brings the female employee who first quoted us outside the club and has her tell us that she never quoted us. At the same time the manager had all of his security guards from the club surround our table and this point we realize that this is their whole little scam that they do. The manager then immediately gets highly aggressive and brings attention to all his security he has surrounding us and then tells us that we either pay him what he is charging us or we are all leaving in handcuffs. There was no customer service or any peaceful attempt at conflict resolution like there is in the states. Be very careful with these clubs that promise you something that sounds too good to be true and remember you are in another country. They will scam you and try and force you to pay with intimidation tactics. In the ends we had no choice but to pay. Even at the higher price we paid for the bottle it only came out to around $160(usd) which isn’t worth the trouble so we ultimately just paid. The next day we went to mandala night club which was just a few doors door down. Completely different experience so much better and way more fun. Highly recommend to go to mandala instead.
