Live Music in Puerto Vallarta: 4 of The Top Places to Visit

Puerto Vallarta is most commonly known for its extraordinary surrounding beaches, wide offer of exquisite gastronomy and the fact that is one of the best vacation spots on the Pacific coast. Besides the fact that breathtaking private luxury villas can be found in Puerto Vallarta, what many don’t know is that the city is also home to many talented musicians. There are plenty of places to go to enjoy live music in Puerto Vallarta.

Here are some of our favorites:

  1. El Rio BBQ Bar: A little off the beaten track, El Rio BBQ is a stunning outdoor location that features live music almost every day of the week! Aside from that, El Rio specializes in slow, wood-smoke barbeque. Enjoy fantastic live music, a full menu of delicious options and great drinks right beside the river. Don’t forget your bathing suit and sunscreen! Follow their events and specials on the Facebook.
  2. La Bodeguita Del Medio: Anything but off the beaten track, La Bodeguita can be found right on the city’s iconic Malecon. Head towards the north end of the city center and find a little slice of Cuba right in the heart of Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. Sip on the best mojitos, listen and dance to live Salsa music and enjoy some delicious Cuban bites. You can even catch a Salsa lesson. Visit their website here.
  3. The Jazz Foundation: Right beside Bodeguita, you’ll find another live music venue that is unlike anything else in the city. Check their Facebook page for updates on upcoming events and prepare yourself for an evening of amazing music and food! Although their name may suggest solely jazz music, they also host other genres including reggae, tango and more!
  4. Nacho Daddy: Tex-Mex delight! You can find Nacho Daddy right on Old Town Puerto Vallarta main street: Basilio Badillio. Live music almost every evening/night, including a swing and blues band, plus a full menu of deliciously fresh Tex-Mex food.
