Domingos de Danzón in Puerto Vallarta Los Arcos Amphitheatre has regular performances in Spanish. The comedians and clowns often require a fairly good grasp of Spanish to understand what everyone is laughing about but other performances transcend language.Show with acrobatic roosters, lots of smoke and light¡Mapa!

Act II Stages.
Act II Stages in Puerto Vallarta has two theatres with a variety of shows, one usually featuring a drag performance and the other outstanding musicians. On November 7th we saw the last performance of Electile Dysfunction, a ‘Dragapella Quartet’ — raunchy and hilarious. The next day, November 8th, was the US election and that was yet another performance!

The theatre has a fun bar, usually with live music. You have to order a minimum of two drinks but they’ll bring the drinks to you in the theatre. For the line-up see
