Gay Malaga, Torremolinos, Granada and Madrid – Nomadic Boys

Nomadic Boys Gay Malaga

We love Spain. Let’s face it, every gay man will come here at some stage of their life (or wish they did). After 18 months travelling in Asia, it was a refreshing change to visit a country that welcomes gays, like REALLY welcomes us! Spain was recently voted by a Gallup poll as the most gay friendly country in the world.

Whether you’re touching down in the south of the country on flights to Malaga or travelling on to Madrid or Granada, you will be welcomed here with open arms.

GAY MALAGA

This made Stefan chuckle for hours. Malaga (with the stress on the second a) literally means wanker in Greek! The customs official at the airport was less impressed and pointed out the stress is on the first a… Malaga is in the very Southern tip of Spain and boy does it get hot here with temperatures always in the double figures throughout the year.

Charming Granada, Nicaragua

Author: , January 23rd, 2013

Granada, NicaraguaOther than the beauty of the natural attractions of Nicaragua, such as the Mombacho Volcano or Lake Nicaragua, I have to say that one of my favorite this to do was to visit the town of Granada. Known to be one of the oldest cities in Central America, this petite colonial town stands out to me as a must visit destination. I might best define it as a small version of Cusco, Peru.

The city is located two hours and thirty minutes from Guacalito de la Isla, where the MUKUL Resort is located, and one hour from Managua and the International Airport. It has an estimated population of 110,326, and a rich colonial heritage, seen in its architecture and structure.

Founded in 1524 by Francisco Hernandez de Cordoba, Granada is alledgedly the first European city in the mainland Americas. Unlike other cities that claim the title, the city of Granada was not only the settlement of the conquest, but also a city registered in official records of the Crown of Aragon, and the Kingdom of Castile in Spain.

Despite the many nearby attractions, like the volcano and lake mentioned above, a day visit or even an overnight stay in Granada would be highly recommended, if you happen to visit Nicaragua.

Gay Travel: Grenada, Spain

Author: , May 19th, 2011

Gay Granada, SpainAlthough it cannot boast having a gay scene to rival Madrid or Barcelona, and isn’t an iconic gay destination like Ibiza or Sitges, historic Granada has distinguished itself over and above all of these places by becoming the first province in Spain to officially declare itself “gay-friendly.”

Last year, specialist gay tour operators from 14 countries, including Brazil, Argentina, Russia, Poland, Germany, and Italy, attended Granada’s second annual International LGBT Tourism Symposium, and Granada took this opportunity to wave the rainbow flag and flex its queer attributes, which include an annual LGBT film festival EntendiendoNos, and Pink Week Sierra Nevada, a gay skiing and snowboarding event in Europe’s southernmost ski resort.

Of course, gays and lesbians have been coming here long before the official welcome. The city has an exotic ancestry, a cross-pollination of Christian and Moorish cultures that gives Granada its unique personality.

Granada Welcomes Gay Travelers

Author: , December 5th, 2010

Gay GranadaAlmost 30 tour operators attended the second annual Patronato Provincial de Turismo de Granada held from Wednesday to Saturday last week aimed specifically to promote the city as a ‘Gay Destination’.

Thanks to the participation of the operators and media from 14 countries in Europe, Oceania and North and South America the event can now boast to have moved into full internationalization.

While the first edition of the Granada fayre was intended only to introduce itself to the sector and the market, the second has had a strong promotional and commercial purpose to establish the province as a destination for LGBT, a segment of great interest because of its volume and level of expenditure which currently stands 30% above average.
