PUERTO VALLARTA FORUMS

Here is a listing of all known and active Puerto Vallarta Forums.
Updated, June 2010

Joining a Forum or Message Board is the best way to learn about the people who live here in Puerto Vallarta. The information is usually first-hand and subject to vigorous revision and correction by other members of each individual forum. Commercial and petty biases become apparent immediately and the truth has a way of standing out from the babble.

ALLVALLARTA MESSAGE BOARD FOR PUERTO VALLARTA
Founded in 2001, this is a popular Puerto Vallarta forum of expats and tourists, with a slight conservative slant. Connected to the AllVallarta commercial booking website. Not censored.

GAYMINGO
A group for gay mingos (gay persons who feel a strong connection to things Mexican…or desire to). No censorship. A free an open forum.
No personal attacks. No spam. Legitimate advertisements of gay businesses in Mexico are welcome.

OUR VALLARTA
Our Vallarta is an offshoot of the Vallartascene Forum created in response to the unpredictability and, dare I say it, craziness of the owner of that board. Somewhat civil, conservative and practical, this forum is also an adjunct to Cafe Roma, a bar/restaurant in Puerto Vallarta.

PHILO’S YAHOO MUSIC FORUM
Philo’s is a bar, restaurant, performance venue in La Cruz, on the North Shore of Banderas Bay. If you live up there, it’s a great place for music and pizza. Philo also runs benefit concerts and language classes. He’s involved with the community….

TRIPADVISOR PUERTO VALLARTA FORUM
A franchised, extremely commercial forum centered on selling hotel reservations in Puerto Vallarta. Heavily censored for quite a variety of reasons. Good for people who don’t have a clue which hotel to book (and like to be told by promoters).

VALLARTA OLD TOWN SOUTHSIDE
A sophisticated forum for Puerto Vallarta. This board is slightly censored by the moderator for commercial and content reasons.

“Old Town or South Side, south of Rio Cuale, in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, is a fun location to stay, walk, shop, dine, hang out at the beach called Playa Los Muertos. Here members share their favorite spots, restaurants, bars, shops, places to stay, opinions, music venues, art galleries, news, activities and side trips.”

VALLARTASCENE FORUM
A free and open forum written by and for expats and visitors in Puerto Vallarta. Run by the same people that run this website, PVScene.com. VallartaScene is considered by some to be a tad hedonistic and liberal in comparison to most other tourist travel websites: It is. And it is not censored except for spam and insanity.
