BeefDip Bear Week is one of the most attended and longest running leather & bear events in the world. It is held in Puerto Vallarta every year between the last weekend of January and the first weekend of February.
All the club parties, the booze cruise and all-but-one pool parties are included with your tag. Only for the Tidal Wave Pool Party a minimum donation at the door of $200 pesos for tag holders is required. This donation goes to charity along with the total of the funds raised by the auction and 20% of the bar sales from Mantamar.
Your tag also grants you discounts discounts at the restaurants and stores. Show your own dog tag so the discount can be applied, and please tell your hosts if a discount is not applied by any of our community partners.
The physical Dog Tags are not sent to you. You will be sent an email with an electronic ticket with your information and a QR code attached to it. Once in Puerto Vallarta you need to go to our welcome center located at the Lobby of the Blue Chairs Hotel and redeem your Tag with that QR code.
Yes, you can buy several Dog Tags but each Tag Holder needs to retrieve their own Dog Tag in person at our welcome center.
BeefDip currently works with SETAC, a non profit organization dedicated to educate and distribute information about HIV and other sexually transmitted infections (STI) on Jalisco’s coast and the Bay of Banderas. In the past our events have also benefited R.S.I.E Orphanage and Vallarta Food Bank.
At the moment we DON’T offer hotel packages. Our host hotels are Almar Resort and Blue Chairs Resort. Check our TRAVEL section on our website for more information.
All sales are final. Dog Tags are NON-REFUNDABLE and NON-TRANSFERABLE.
Smile! Your image may appear on our online galleries, our official after movie and some LGBTQ+ press coverage. Also be sure to ask kindly if you want to show off your fabulous outfit for the camera! We’d gladly take your picture of video.

Puerto Vallarta is a very welcoming city for all the LGBTQ+ community, but have in mind that it is still a city with families and people with a diverse background, use common sense and be respectful of this beautiful community. Also clothes check are available at our club nights and pool parties. A “fanny-pack” or small purse is also recommended to carry out cash, mobile and cards.
The Booze Cruise is included with your dog tag at no additional cost! And while we’re at it, your dramamine is also included. Take it while you’re in line to board.
For your own safety and to give you the swiftest boarding experience possible, we board the booze cruise ships using small boats or “pangas” that hold 20 people each. You may be separated from your group in this phase but most likely you’ll end up boarding the same boat.
Booze and snacks aboard the boat are included, as well as your lunch at the beach restaurant. But remember to bring cash for drinks on the beach restaurant, or souvenirs and tips for your servers.
The color bracelets indicate which group/boat/restaurant you are assigned. For your own safety, be aware of the color/boat you are on and please, don’t switch boats. It is important that you get your meal from your assigned restaurant at the beach.
The area where BeefDip events take place is relatively small. You can easily get around the venues and host hotels by Taxi, Uber and many of our beef dippers get around walking. You may want to have in mind that there might be a few steep hills around the Zona Romantica, plan accordingly.
We always publish the official events in our website and official social networks. Check the list for the complete details and If it’s not listed there, it is NOT a BeefDip Event.
