La Guarida: best spot in Tulum for LGBTQ community
Whole week: 10:00 am – 00:30 pm / Wednesdays: 18:00 am – 00:30 pm
La Guarida is the top spot in Tulum for the LGBTQ community. The ambience is super cozy and you will feel at home the moment you enter the venue. It’s not a specified “gay bar” but it’s known that a lot from the LGBTQ Community hang here to have a good glass of wine, a beer or a yummy cheese plate at a good price. Moreover, amazing live bands from jazz, to folklore and Blues usually play here.
La Guarida is good at creating a beautiful mix of Spanish and Mexican culture that will make you feel like you just entered a little bar in Barcelona in the middle of the Caribbean. This makes it easy to open up and be confident in making new contacts!
The audience is very mixed – you can talk with a lawyer and in no time with an artist – and no dress code is needed. La Guarida is also an incredible spot for nomads to find locals to get in touch with Mexico and Tulum reality! Nice flirts are around the corner while you dance in the crowd when the live bands get into the groove 😉
La Guarida is located in Tulum downtown around the corner of Aldo’s ice cream.
Bandera, when the restaurant turns into a club
Restaurant: all week 8:00 am – 00:00 pm / Parties: Friday and Saturday 10:00 am until the end
Banderas parties are one of the best in Tulum town. The party at the Hotel Zone is already over and you want to continue partying with an amazing crowd? Then don’t miss Bandera and its events of pure joy!
This spot is well known by the LGBTQ Community in Tulum and there is no label as a gay party needed – it naturally became a spot where gays, lesbians, and straights raise their hands together to worship love to life, community and freedom of expressing yourself as you are.
Move your hips, embrace the hug of a new connection or just chill on the couch in a beautiful backyard in Tulum. Bandera is a pizzeria by day and turns into a venue for parties overnight at weekends. Not only is the vibe great, but they also have affordable prices and the best local DJs playing old school tunes perfectly mixed with house and electronic beats. Get ready to spin around and maybe receive an unexpected – but magical – kiss while you get lost in Tulum’s night!

Tulum beach has the same rules for gays as for straight people: respect the environment, be mindful that kids are around and take care of your trash!
