The Mercurio was recommended to me by a friend who travels to Puerto Vallarta every year and who can afford the best hotels wherever he goes. He suggested this small, intimate, unbelievably inexpensive, insanely friendly, gay owned and operated oasis two blocks from the beach. Located on a quiet, beautiful street, it is still smack in the middle of everything one would want to do - whether you are gay or straight, a frequent visitor or a first timer to Puerto Vallarta.
The owner is an American with strong, liberal and progressive ties to the community, and he and the staff are not only friendly, enthusiastic and utterly charming, they are just simply adorable. I enjoyed the local, very generous complimentary breakfast every morning by the pool, and even though I don't drink, I met a number of locals and tourists at the pool bar in the afternoons and evenings.
The year before I stayed at he ultra-posh, majorly expensive Westin Resort, and of the two hotels, I heartily recommend the Hotel Mercurio for those men and women who wanted to be treated with courtesy and charm, and who are looking for that very special Mexican experience.
I will be back soon!
