Puerto Vallarta is known for its friendly people, welcoming atmosphere for the LGBT+ community, and art. You’d be hard pressed to find a thriving gay community without a thriving art community. Art of every description is exhibited, from bohemian to Huichol, expressionistic to figurative.
Which is why you’ll find Vallarta home to more than 30+ art galleries, with at least half of those clustered in what is informally called the Art District in Centro.
During the “Art Season” from October to June, an event called ArtWalk is held every Wednesday. Gallery’s typically host “open house” type receptions during the walk. You can easily go and visit some 16 galleries over just a few hours.
