Puerto Rico Gay and Lesbian Vacations

Puerto Rico

Your gay Puerto Rico vacation

Looking more like a lush province of Spain than an American territory, Puerto Rico is one of the most foreign experiences you can have in the U.S. And it’s one of the gayest vacation experiences in all the Caribbean. Most of Puerto Rico’s gay and lesbian infrastructure is found in the Old City of San Juan, a colonial, walled city within a city. And despite traditional influences, gays and lesbians have more legal rights here than in many U.S. states.

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’re the ONLY leading travel site with filters for hotel reviews by other LGBT travelers.
    • We feature the top gay-friendly accommodations, including Best in Stay hotels and gay resorts.
    • We’re proud sponsors of many LGBT charities and events, year after year.
  • Puerto Rico nightlife

    In the elegant Condado section and the more industrial Santurce area, a selection of LGBT clubs and bars pump into the night. There’s even a lesbian bar cheekily named Cups. Condado Beach can be filled with gays and lesbians, as well as nearby Ocean Park Beach.

    LGBT events

    A big Pride-style party called Inferno happens over Memorial Day weekend, and fun events like bear get-togethers, drag shows and pool parties happen throughout the year.

    Exploring Puerto Rico

    You can explore the verdant central mountains and their pretty villages and coffee plantations, where English is barely spoken. Puerto Rico has nearly twenty forest preserves, where visitors can hike or picnic. And there’s the mellow adjacent isle of Vieques just off Puerto Rico’s northeast coast, popular with queer tourists and retirees.

  • Winter and spring are high-priced seasons

    From mid-December to mid-April, snowbird tourists fleeing from cold northern climates flock to Puerto Rico. Temperatures year-round have a relatively small range from 75°F to 85°F, but August can be the hottest and wettest month.

    Driving is a pain in San Juan

    Filled with narrow cobblestone streets made for horse carriages, opt instead for taxis or tourist shuttles.

    Head to the Old City for creative dining

    Although Puerto Rico does not have a signature cuisine, the section of the Old City called SoFo or South of Fortaleza is brimming with cool restaurants serving creative fusion cuisine in hip eateries.
