Puerto Rico: Gay and Lesbian
Gatekeeper of the Caribbean Sea
Puerto Rico is one of the most gay- friendly countries in the world and a gay and lesbian holiday in Puerto Rico is a relaxing experience, with the country offering one of the gayest vacation experiences! A large chunk of gay travelers spend their vacation in the pedestrian- inhabited area of El Condado in San Juan, Ocean Park, Old San Juan, Guanica in Rincon and the islands of Vieques and Paradores. The Condado Beach is packed with gay and lesbian tourists, especially in the winter months. The Ocean Park neighborhood also has its beach which is frequented by gay tourists.
The neighborhood of Santruce in El Condado has a vibrant nightlife for gays and lesbians with rows of clubs, bars and pubs catering to them. A gay and lesbian holiday in Puerto Rico is not only restricted to beaches of the country. The country has a number of forest reserves that offer nature walks and trails. In the Karst Country on the north coast, caves hold huge underground water systems that make for an interesting day tour. The neighboring isle of Vieques just off the northeast coast, once used by the U.S. for bombing practice, is now used by queer tourists as a mellow getaway to rent villas and hang out in gay-popular inns. A gay and lesbian holiday in Puerto Rico is an excellent choice! Puerto Rico scores 7 on 10 as a gay and lesbian holiday destination.
