Unforgettable LGBTQ+ Holidays to Mexico

Mexico is fast becoming an LGBTQ+ favourite for holidaymakers the world over. Its welcoming nature, Latin American charm, sensational food, vibrant cities, outstanding natural scenery and tropical-like weather make it a force to be reckoned with when it comes to choosing your next holiday destination. Equaldex scores Mexico 100/100 on its equality index highlighting the fact Mexico has some of the best laws and freedoms for its LGBTQ+ citizens and visitors – here you’ll very much be welcomed with open arms!

There are a number of destinations in Mexico favoured by the LGBTQ+ community such as Los Cabos, Guadalajara and Cancun. By far the most popular places to visit though are Puerto Vallarta and Mexico City – read below to find out more.

Puerto Vallarta

One of the world’s most famous LGBTQ+ destinations, Puerto Vallarta is a Pacific beach town full of the usual Mexican charm, gorgeous golden sand, eccentric nightlife and of course seamlessly never-ending bouts of sunshine. This is the perfect spot for those looking to chill out a bit during the day and soak up the atmosphere before enjoying a few well-earned tipples in an evening. Alternatively, if you want to party from the moment your eyes open to the moment they close, you’ll be in good company also. However you like to spend your beach holiday, Puerto Vallarta is capable of making it a reality.

The main area to spend your time here is the Romantic Zone or Zona Romantica. Here you’ll find everything you need to have a fantastic holiday, from nightclubs, laid-back cocktail bars, high-end establishments, day excursions, watersport activities and more. If you’re seeking a gay specific beach for people watching and the option to cruise then head to Playa Los Muertos, just a short walk from the Romantic Zone. Other fun activities to fill your time here include Mexican cooking classes, snorkelling excursions, day trips to Tequila and sunset cruises.

An absolute must-do in Puerto Vallarta is pay a visit to the Mantamar Beach Club Bar & Grill! This exceptional beach club creates a sensational atmosphere full of lively clientele, great music and VIP services in a luxurious setting. Rent yourself a sun-lounger for the day or shade yourself in one of the club’s cabanas whilst enjoying the trendy infinity pool and finishing off the cocktail menu. This will be a highlight of your visit to this part of the world!

Make sure to consider the Almar Resort, a luxury LGBTQ beachfront hotel with fabulous pool parties, Casa Cupula, a private luxury hilltop retreat that is welcoming to everybody and Piñata PV Gay Hotel, an exclusively all-male gay hotel, when looking for places to stay.

Mexico City

As the first city to legalise same-sex marriage in Mexico, it goes without saying that Mexico City has truly established itself as one of the best queer destinations to visit in Latin America. Here you’ll find a stunning blend of culture, history, art, LGBTQ+ nightlife and of course that usual Mexican charm that’ll leave you with unforgettable holiday memories. If you enjoy a city vibe and the depth of character that comes along with it then you will not be disappointed with a visit to Mexico City.

The main neighbourhoods visited by the LGBTQ+ community include Zona Rosa (Pink Zone) as well as the low-key neighbourhoods of Roma and Condesa. Whilst you will of course find a huge variety of outlandish nightclubs, chilled-out chic bars and relaxed pubs (Baby, Viena Bar and Kinky Bar to name a few), there is also so much more to this city worth visiting. Consider a trip to the Frida Kahlo Museum to see where this iconic artist used to live, head to Chapultepec for a breather from the hustle and bustle of the city or even experience the floating gardens of Xochimilco, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

One event not to be missed is Mexico City Pride, held in June each year. This week-long celebration and protest for change is when the LGBTQ+ community and their allies can really let their hair down and embrace who they are. A party-like atmosphere in abundance, you are sure to have a memorable time!

Make sure to consider W Mexico City, a well-known brand in love with the LGBTQ+ community, JW Marriott Hotel Mexico City, where luxury is redefined whilst maintaining that Mexican flair, and Galeria Plaza Reforma, a modern, sleek friendly hotel.
