Indie Theater
“A breath of fresh air in the nightlife scene of Puerto Vallarta, Act II is a multigenre theater, cabaret, and sophisticated bar all in one. On the top floor of a little shopping center in Zona Romantica, it offers a great diversity of shows, both on the “Main Stage” and in the more intimate “Red Room,” which recalls the good cabaret shows of old. In the intermission, you can also enjoy a drink at the Encore Piano & Wine Bar. Altogether, it's an excellent option for a different kind of night out in Puerto Vallarta.”

Nightclub
“Hip and very trendy, La Santa has become one of the places to be seen in town. Split into 2 sections, the club side has a large dance floor with house and guest DJs; the second part is the lounge with a retractable roof and swimming pool. La Santa has a rather high-end dress code, like, dress to impress. Chandeliers, decoration, seating, upscale, massive light show and sound system. Somewhat mixed reviews on the service and drinks but still really popular, and with a capacity of over 2,500 people. The place is hopping on the weekends. ”
