LUXURY AWAITS YOU AT CASA CUPULA


Puerto Vallarta’s Premier LGBTQ Boutique Hotel C 32


asa Cupula is a gay-owned and operated boutique hotel located in the exclusive Amapas neighborhood of Puerto Vallarta, Mexico’s famed destination for


LGBTQ travelers. A short walk from the charming restaurants, lively bars and gay beaches that Vallarta is known for, the hotel provides a serene escape above the celebrated Zona Romantica neighborhood, with beautiful views of Banderas Bay and the Sierra Madre mountains. Puerto Vallarta has been known as gay-friendly


since way back in the 1960s when Elizabeth Taylor vacationed here with her Hollywood pals. Founded in 2002 as a small guesthouse, Casa Cupula was first to offer luxury accommodations specifically intended for LGBTQ travelers and their friends. Throughout the years, Casa Cupula has grown


RAGE monthly | February 2020


to 19 rooms and suites from the original five and it has added everything one could need to have a relaxing vacation in uncompromising comfort. This includes a well-known restaurant with room service, a luxury gym and spa, and three pool ambiences including the city’s only swimsuit- optional Pool Club. Despite its boutique status, Casa Cupula


maintains a high standard of excellence in service, facilities and amenities that rival a five-star resort, including complimentary car service within the city. But it’s a freer and more intimate space than your multinational resort chains, and a place where everyone is welcome. The Pool Club is especially noteworthy. Open


daily to the public so that guests can bring friends or make new ones with other visitors, the club’s weekly Saturday Pool Party featuring live DJs and go-go dancers has become a popular


pre-evening hangout where one might even spot a gay celebrity or two. At a time of increasing tourism in Puerto Vallarta


and the growth of impersonal, often developer- operated lodging options like Airbnb and Flip Key, Casa Cupula also prides itself on being a longtime anchor of the local LGBTQ community. The hotel is a major supporter of SETAC, the


organization that leads the city’s HIV/AIDS treatment and prevention efforts, and an active member local business groups working for better police cooperation with the local and visiting LGBTQ community. More importantly, Casa Cupula has always been


a safe and welcoming place for local LGBTQ to build careers in hospitality – indeed, aside from the hotel’s beautiful grounds and facilities, its very best asset must be its incredibly friendly staff, who embrace each guest as a friend.
