SAN FRANCISCO – According to an article in the San Francisco Chronicle, there are as many ways to travel as there are travelers, so to suppose that all LGBT people want to lie on a beach in Cancun are just as preposterous as supposing they all want to go trekking in Nepal.
We tend to look at types of travel as being in a range between “leisure” and “discovery” (it’s much less snooty than “traveler versus tourist”).
So recognizing that range of ways to go, the San Francisco Chronicle has picked ten destinations for LGBT travelers based on casual recommendations (not necessarily supported by stats) from a few industry insiders.
Stockholm, Las Vegas, Toronto, Curaçao, Gran Canaria, Iceland, Cambodia, South Africa, Colombia, and Cuba.
The article says about Curaçao that “it’s hard to tell if it’s the Dutch influence, but the island is notable for its place at the front line of LGBT acceptance in the Caribbean. The laid-back vibe and diverse culture are big draws for visitors and, while Curacao doesn’t have a bounty of marquee attractions, there are plenty of quiet beaches and indulgent resorts, if serious leisure is your goal.”
Once more Curaçao makes it in the top destinations for tourists to visit. This island is on the rise.
