Only three of these gyms/spas/massage/fitness centers in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico noted here are gay-owned (**) that I am aware of, Blue Massage Spa (photo below), the Pump Gym at the luxury gay guesthouse Casa Cupula, and the established Acqua day spa and gym now under new management-ownership. Acqua, Power Fitness Gym, Pump Gym, the San Franciscan and the new The Fit Club offer gym workout facilities located in the South Side-Zona Romantica-Old Town area. Gold's Gym near the Plaza Las Glorias complex is probably the best, most popular and well equipped (as are many of its men) gym in the city. Gold's is pretty much the overall favorite for bodybuilding and has plenty of gay clientele. Several of the facilities also offer pilates and yoga which have become somewhat popular in recent years as people are now more concerned about overall lifestyle, diet and health. Please call the particular person, Vallarta gym, studio, massage therapist, day spa, yoga or workout locale for details because lessons, hours and prices do change from time to time and try as I might I can't keep it all up-to-date. In addition, now many of the Nuevo Vallarta and local hotels and luxury resorts offer their own massage facilities and spa services, so you may wish to contact them as well.
