Super Wendy Answers 10 Questions About Puerto Vallarta

Need suggestions on what to do on your trip? Super Wendy to the rescue.

Although we don’t know for sure that she can leap tall buildings in a single bound, we do know that Super Wendy does put on one heck of a comedy show every night at La Noche in Puerto Vallarta.

What she may lack in authenticity as she channels her pop divas on stage, she makes up for with enthusiasm and humor. And, because she’s having a good time, you will too. In fact, we’re willing to bet that Super Wendy—with her one-two punch of over-the-top, old-school drag and cadre of sexy gogo sidekicks—turns out to be every bit the hero you needed.
