I know that for some of you, learning about the acceptance of gay life in Punta Cana is very important. Some destinations can be really hostile for LGBTQ+ people, and this can make or break the vacation. You want to hold hands, take some pictures, and enjoy your trip without waiting for disaster to strike, like everybody else, and that’s why you should pick Punta Cana. No other place will offer the same level of safety and comfort that we can!
You won’t be discriminated against
One of the main concerns you may have is whether people will treat you any differently for being openly gay. No need to panic, everyone who works at the resorts will be very professional all throughout your trip without losing the friendly spark that we all share! Enjoy a relaxing drink by the pool with your partner, or a romantic dinner at the restaurant – no matter the occasion, the staff will welcome you.
And if you worried about others outside the resort, people will still be friendly and polite to you. The island is very safe as is, so you can take that out of the list of your concerns!
And we have proof that everyone can have fun!
Well, maybe you don’t believe me when I tell you, but what if I show you? Here is a beautiful example of a wedding photoshoot taken in Punta Cana, so you’ll see how much everyone is enjoying it! It might be daunting, but you can absolutely have a day for you two without worrying about others. I mean, come on, just look at them!
There are no gay bars, though
I’ve talked about how Punta Cana’s nightlife is very active before, but sadly, you won’t find gay bars on the island. You shouldn’t be discouraged by this, as there are a million more activities you can take part in, but you probably won’t find this in particular. Still, it’s a really small aspect of the Punta Cana experience, and there are more interesting things to do at the beach anyway. Don’t let this take away from your vacation!
There are many more LGBTQ+ tourists around!
If you worry about feeling like an odd one out, you really shouldn’t! Many same-sex couples enjoy their vacations in Punta Cana just like everybody else. And there are weddings celebrated here constantly! It’ll be a safe environment to relax and blend in, without much trouble!
And you can even find LGBTQ+ friendly resorts!
In case you were worried, because it’s normal to be, that something could go wrong even with everything I’ve told you, you can always find safety in some of the LGBTQ+ friendly resorts and hotels the island has to offer for you. Here are some of the options!
- Hard Rock Hotel Punta Cana
- PortBlue Le Sivory Punta Cana
- Westin Puntacana Resort & Club
- Breathless Resort & Spa
And many more!
It’s completely understandable to have worries about this subject when visiting a new place, but Punta Cana offers you the kind of safety and warm, kind environment that you need. Bring your partner, take some photos, and enjoy the beautiful beaches we offer you! It’s your trip, after all!
