1982: Los Balcones, Vallarta’s First Gay Bar, Makes its Debut

In 1982, a young Lesbian named Vicky Macedo made history. She converted her family home, where she had been raised at Juarez 182, Centro, into the first openly gay bar in Puerto Vallarta. Los Balcones, in English, the balconies, had five balconies, all with an incredible view of the streets below. Two looked down onto Libertad, and three looked down onto the busy street of Juarez.
