After I Do: Top 5 Honeymoon Destinations

It’s time to start planning what to do once the I Do's are done. Read on for the top homo honeymoon hotspots in North America.



5. Montréal
Like a chunk of France thrown into North
America's back yard, Montréal is a special treat
for gay visitors. With liberal laws protecting gays and
lesbians and one of the most progressive, gay-friendly
tourist bureaus on the planet, most queer visitors
feel like they have finally come home when they get a
taste of Montréal. For luscious surrounds, check in to
chic, sleek, modernist gem Opus
(10 Sherbrooke Ouest; 514-843-6000; C$243+),
located in the Latin Quarter, a 15-minute walk from
the Gay Village. Alternatively, to stay gay, La
(1019 Rue St.-Hubert; 514-289-9297;
C$119+) is a charming B&B in two 120-year-old Victorian
houses, with a gym, a 24-hour hot tub, and a
clothing-optional sun deck.

4. Santa Fe
Lesbian-popular Santa Fe boasts a gentle,
rustic-yet-sophisticated vibe, historical stucco
structures, and a removed, otherworldly feel. Once home
to pioneering artist Georgia O'Keeffe, it’s a
delicious spot to bring your beloved, snuggle at a
cozy inn, and watch the full moon rise over the desert
floor. Triangle Inn (off U.S. 285/84,
Arroyo Cuyamungue; 505-455-3375; $70+) is a
beautifully maintained, lesbian-owned compound of
seven adobe casitas.

5. Puerto Vallarta
Although definitely well marked on the tourist
track, Vallarta’s old Spanish feel and its
lively gay scene make it well worth consideration.
With world-class resorts, gourmet restaurants, and a mix of
modern and old, Puerto Vallarta is one of the best gay
honeymoon spots south of the border. There are more
than a dozen gay hotels in Vallarta but none are as
upscale as the Casa Cupula (129 Callejon de la
Igualdad; 866-261-3516; $108+), which combines the
intimacy of a B&B with the service level of a
high-end resort. Amenities in the 19-room property
include a gym, continental breakfast, concierge service, and
two pools.
