Cancun Gay and Lesbian Vacations


Your gay Cancun vacation

Although Puerto Vallarta, Mexico City and Acapulco are considered some of the top destinations for gay travelers to Mexico, Cancun actually has a thriving LGBT scene. Cancun has many things other larger Mexican cities don't: Nearby gay-owned beachfront hotels, gay beaches like Playa Delfines at southern end of the Hotel Zone, and a hopping queer nightclub scene with clubs still pumping since the 1980s.

Why book on Orbitz?

  • Miss Richfield 1981 says it best in this video—not all travel sites are created equal. When you book on Orbitz, your travel dollars work harder. Here’s why:  

    • We’re the ONLY leading travel agency with a perfect Corporate Equality Index Score from the Human Rights Campaign, with two GLAAD Media awards to boot.
    • We feature the top gay-friendly accommodations.
    • We’re proud sponsors of many LGBT charities and events, year after year.
  • Mexico made easy

    Gay Cancun vacations offer 14 miles of perfect beaches and luxury mega-hotels. It's Mexico made easy: English is widely spoken, roads are well-paved, the city feels clean and manicured, and familiar brand names are prevalent for dining, shopping and nightclubbing.

    Historic Cancun

    The famous Mayan ruins of Chichen Itza and Tulum -- is just a short day trip away. Cancun also has a couple of small museums. The Museo Arqueologico de Cancun has relics from archaeological sites around the Yucatan, and Museo de Arte Popular Mexicano is filled with masks, native costumes and religious artifacts.

    LGBT events

    Cancun is home to two major gay and lesbian party events: The Cancun International Gay Festival in May and the Cancun Mayan Riviera Gay Fall Festival in November have booming beach parties along with raves in the downtown LGBT clubs.

  • Mayan ruins in the city
    Climb the remains of a small Mayan settlement at the El Rey ruins, oblivious to its age, dating back to 10th century A.D. Bring fruit and feed the hundreds of sunning iguanas. El Meco is quiet, naturally shaded and tranquil enough for a picnic among the 14 structures or at nearby Isla Blanca, a local beach. Both are a reasonable drive from the Hotel Zone.

    Look for low-season deals

    Low season in Cancun is from May to mid-December, not counting a mini high season in June and July, when Mexican and European travelers head to Cancun. Keep in mind, though, that hurricane season overlaps this period.

    Market 23
    Practice your Spanish … and your haggling skills. Pottery, hats, jewelry and local crafts mix with fresh meat, fish shops and fruit stands at this very local market.
