Christmas-town Wonderment with Your Chosen Family or a True Tropical Dream

There are two types of travelers in December – those looking to embrace the holiday season, and those looking to escape the cold. We say, why not both?

Those unafraid of the cold should consider the magical Christmas towns in the Alps. Snowy picturesque scenery, charming holiday markets, and skiing…LGBTQ+ travelers will feel welcome in towns across France, Germany and Switzerland with their reputations for being gay-friendly.

Craving sun instead? Pick your Central American dream destination. Belize, Costa Rica, and Panama are all warm and welcoming. Beach it up or explore rainforests and national parks. Costa Rica and Panama both have thriving LGBTQ+ communities, and there are often Pride events in December too.

Looking for something completely unique? How about an Antarctica cruise in December? Luxury ships are comfortable, welcoming, and inclusive. Travelers can admire icebergs, glaciers, and penguins, plus go kayaking and ice climbing. The isolation of Antarctica offers a chance to disconnect and enjoy a truly immersive travel experience.
