Many sections of the Caribbean are hazardous destinations for LGBT visitors, with anti-sodomy statutes and other anti-gay legislation in effect.
LGBT tourists are welcome to visit these locations, but they must be aware of local laws and customs and may be required to refrain from public displays of affection.
“[Puerto Rico] is known for its friendly and welcoming people, with a vibrant personality and eager to celebrate diversity across the board — from lively entertainment to social events, weddings and more,” said Luz Gonzalez, director of Sales and Marketing for the Renaissance La Concha Resort to Travel Pulse. “We celebrate the fact we are an immersive culture, and this also extends naturally to the LGBTQ community. We want everybody to feel welcome, to celebrate together. At La Concha we celebrate multiple weddings, and we have a certified wedding expert dedicated to the LGBTQ market.”
