This is the place to go if you want loud music, lots of dancing, and cheap drinks. All the women in the group got coupons for two free margaritas. One guy ordered a beer (all drinks appeared to be 2 for 1) and got two beer in his own bucket complete with ice!There are also girls who come around with tequila shots. You can't miss them as they blow their whistles louder than a traffic cop. They roam around (way too often) and will give 3 shots of tequila for about 35 pesos. They are kind enough to tilt your head back and pour them in your mouth for you. Being a bit of a germ phobe a was pleased to see they appeared to use a disposable plastic shot glass and each different customer seemed to get a clean one. The also offered "moppets", which I assumed was when they put your head into their chest, but that did seem to be an optional part of the shooters.I won't go back, I am just a little too old for that. But if you are young and love to party you will probably have a great time.

We had a great time at the Zoo...even the husbands danced in the cage. Must be a Puerto Vallarta thing.
If you're looking to shake your groove thang - or if you just like monkeys - go to The Zoo.
It's downtown; you can't miss it.

Once inside the dimly lit cavern, strewn with giant African safari animals, you find the bar 6 steps in front of you. Ahhhh yes, 2x1 drinks, all day, all night... what more could a girl(or guy) ask for?
Tequilla shooter girls maybe? They are there and ready to tilt your head back and pour...for about 35 pesos, but who's counting?
The music is always loud, making in-depth conversations impossible. But hey! It's a disco, as long as you can read lips, "What's your name? Do ya wanna dance, and What are you drinking?" It's the only conversation you need. Besides, the music is so good, who needs to talk when you can dance? If you feel really fiesty, there's a cage you can dance in also...or a ledge, possibly the bar....
The drinks are good and cold, the bartenders and wait staff make sure your hands are never empty. Never mind the shooter girls, they will track you down like... well,like a hyena on a wounded hippo. Once you imbibe on a head spinning, straight down the hatch concoction of tequila and something fruity, you will be fair game the rest of the night.
The crowd doesn't really pour in until a bit after midnight,
making a night at the Zoo turn into a morning at the Zoo. It's not uncommon to walk outside after a night of partying to see the sun peaking over the mountain tops...just in time for you to hit the Pancake House for some Oh Henry pancakes to soak up the alcohol.
The common dress at the Zoo is club clothes, although they will let in with decent shorts. Cover charge can range from 80-200 pesos depending on the time of year, but with the cover, you do get two drinks.
