Gay travel in the Caribbean

Jump to last reply

I know that the Caribbean is not particularly gay friendly, but are there any destinations that would be safe for a gay couple? We have a female same-sex couple that travels with us often and we would like to plan a trip to the Caribbean. I know that Jamaica is out of the picture, but I was told that some of the French/Dutch/Spanish islands might be ok for us….and to basically stay away from any British colonized islands.

Does anyone have any experience with this? Also, I know that Mexico would be fine but we aren’t interested in Mexico unfortunately…

We are particularly interested in St. Maarten and Barbados. I know that Barbados is a British colonized island and has anti-gay laws on the books but would a female same-sex couple generate as much attention? A coworker is from Barbados and said that our friends would be fine…. We just don’t want anyone to feel uncomfortable…

Thanks for any advice.
