Same-sex marriage was just legalized in the UK and it seems like every month a new state in the USA is taking on the gay marriage battle, and that means that gay couples in England and Wales will be getting married in spades. And more weddings mean more honeymoons.
We asked travel experts to weigh in on what they think will be the hottest honeymoon destinations for newly married gay couples.
And while honeymooners may want to avoid places like Russia, there are plenty of awesome destinations that are just waiting to welcome gay newlywed couples with open arms, with Puerto Vallarta being the first choice time and time again!
Puerto Vallarta is a resort city on the Pacific coast of Mexico with great waves for surfing, an old Spanish feel, and a thriving LGBT scene. The city has several gay hotels, like the Hotel Mercurio.
However, Punta Mita, a quiet resort city about an hour drive from Puerto Vallarta, may be a better alternative for honeymooners, according to Ed Salvato, the editor-in-chief of gay travel magazine ManAboutWorld.
“Puerto Vallarta is extremely gay popular, but it may not be conducive to a honeymoon because you don’t want your new husband to get picked up at a bar the first night,” Salvato said. “Instead, couples might want to stay at a more secluded resort like the Four Seasons Punta Mita, which is right nearby.”
