We are Officially Dedicating May to U.S. and Mexico Travel. 

Gay travel in the month of May…shanty you stay.

Hawaii is popular among LGBTQ+ travelers (especially in May) with gorgeous weather, eclectic beaches, and an inclusive atmosphere. And who wouldn’t want to snorkel reefs, hike volcanoes, and “get lei’d” in the Aloha State?

Just across the Pacific is a hidden gem around the Oregon/California border, Jedediah Smith Redwoods State Park. This one-of-a-kind park is home to the tallest and oldest living trees on earth – a true natural wonder. See the giants and enjoy recreational activities like hiking, camping, and kayaking.

Puerto Vallarta is known as one of the world’s biggest LGBTQ+ beach hot spots. This Mexican resort town is known for its coast-side bashes and lively nightlife scene. The city is also home to many gay-friendly bars, clubs, and hotels, making it incredibly popular among vacationers.

May offers a unique opportunity to extend the time of your trip into the month of June too, which hosts an array of Pride events and festivals around the globe.
