Hotel Mercurio, a popular Gay Hotel in Zonal Romantica in Puerto Vallarta, has been closed. Guests were left stranded on the street (but hotel staff, despite the distress they themselves were experiencing, stayed with guests and did their best to help them find new lodging and comfort them).

It all happened on Friday, May 17, 2024, around 9:30 p.m. just before one of the busiest weeks in Puerto Vallarta as gay pride begins.

Mercurio Property Seized

Multiple trucks outside the hotel were loading all of the furniture, equipment and everything from the hotel. The items were moved to a storage facility in Ixtapa and are still owned by the hotel. They will be sold.

The hotel was closed as the result of a decision on a law suit that dated back to 2005 (read more here.)

We’ve reached out to Hotel Mercurio Owner Paul Crist and will update this story when we can confirm the facts.

Guests at the hotel were not even allowed to pack their own bags. Authorities packed everyones bags – which left many guests shaken at the traumatic experience. Some are trying to location medications and phone chargers and still do not know where they will be spending the night. A few guests we talked to were already planning on trying to get flights out as soon as Saturday.

Photos from Saturday, May 18, 2024: The front doors are locked, the kitchen and offices can be seen emptied from equipment and supplies.
