“I don’t think anyone would have imagined how the LGBT community has gained so much acceptance over the last 15 years,” said Casa Cupula founder Don Pickens in a press release. “Back then, Puerto Vallarta’s reputation as a leading LGBT destination was not as well-known. Today it is celebrated by the city and is a major driver of Puerto Vallarta’s tourism-based economy.”

Casa Cupula opened in 2002 and was Mexico’s first high-end end LGBTQ property. It began with only five rooms but has since expanded to an 18-room full resort complex. 

During its 15 years, it has not only added rooms but three pools; a Jacuzzi and sauna; full concierge services; Pump Gym & Spa; and Taste Restaurant.

Casa Cupula is located in Zona Romántica, just minutes from popular gay beaches, as well as bars, nightclubs and restaurants. The resort hosts clothing-optional pool parties featuring DJs and bartender service at the Casa Ramona pool, a short distance from the main pool.
