San Juan's Thriving Gay Scene

Posted: Nov. 29th, 2012  |  By Michael Pearse
Gay Pride in San Juan

Mark Chestnut, founder of, has deemed San Juan as the top Caribbean destination for gays. Though the statement might be rather bold, he's compiled an extensive list of bars, beaches and various locations throughout the Puerto Rican city to explore, all of which are incredibly gay friendly, if not designed around the gay scene entirely.

Latin American destinations like Puerto Vallarta, Rio de Janeiro and Buenos Aires may be more prominent on the global gay travel map, but in the Caribbean, San Juan, Puerto Rico, is the vacation destination with the best infrastructure and the widest variety of activities available for gay and lesbian travelers (the island has also become a popular topic of conversation within the LGBT community since featherweight Puerto Rican boxing champ Orlando Cruz came out of the closet).

So if you're looking for a fun place to enjoy gay beaches and nightlife, look no further than the so-called "Isla del Encanto" (Island of Enchantment).
