Cancun and the Riviera Maya - White sand beaches and fun in the sun

Esa página está disponible también en español.

The Yucatan peninsula is primarily known for its beach resorts (in Quitana Roo state) such as Cancun, Cozumel, Playa del Carmen and Tulum. There is a good-sized gay scene to be found in Cancun and a growing one in Playa del Carmen. Special gay events and circuit parties are also regular visitors to the resort towns so keep updated on the Gay Mexico facebook page.

Quintana Roo state is also a leader in Mexico in terms of LGBT rights, with same sex marriages being legal statewide since 2012.

Elsewhere on the Yucatán there are a number of world famous archelogical sites from the Mayan civilization such as Chitzen Itza and Tulum. And the capital of Yucatan state, Merida, has a thriving gay scene.
