Should You Visit Cabo or Cancun? – 2TravelDads

Cabo or Cancun - 2TravelDads

Quite often people ask us if we prefer Cancun over Cabo San Lucas. That’s a tough question and depending on what the goal is with a Mexico vacation, we might answer with either one. We’re going to help you decide if a trip to Cabo or Cancun is the better option for you and your family.

I think you will see that the two areas are extremely different and in many ways are not comparable. But since people ask us, clearly there is either some confusion or people just want to take a trip to tropical Mexico and don’t understand their options. You can decide for yourself after this which you would prefer.

Cabo or Cancun for your Mexican Vacation?

When you compare Cancun and Cabo San Lucas you will find that both have tons of both small independent and major resort hotels, there are lots of beaches, and both tend to be popular spring break destinations. But truly they have more that is different than the same. In both Cabo San Lucas and Cancun you will find tourism and hospitality that is catered to Americans looking for a cheap Mexican vacation, but then you will also find five star resort experiences and fine dining that exemplifies the best of Mexican cuisine.

The Dorado Getaway - Baja Sur Gay Friendly Guesthouse

Beautiful Private Seaside
Baja Sur Gay Friendly Guesthouse

Our Baja Sur gay friendly guesthouse is the perfect Sea Side getaway. Awesome beauty in a safe and private location at a very reasonable price. This charming home is on The Sea of Cortez and only 150 yards from the ocean. Perfect for strolls on the beach, swimming, fishing, kayaking, or just kicking back, the national hobby in Mexico.

Only 10 minutes from Santa Rosalia, the most gay friendly town in Mexico. The LGBT culture started here in the late eighteen hundreds when a French company began miming cooper just north of town. They believed that LGBT employees were more honest, harder working, friendlier and smarter than other employees.

Those employees started the queer culture that continues today. If you are a member of the LGBT community and have never been to Mexico be assured that this area is safe and welcoming.

Dickinson Guest House - Gay Guadalajara Guest House

GAY GUADALAJARA GUEST HOUSE, QUIET NEIGHBORHOOD, CLOSE TO GAY BARS

The Dickinson Guest House has been in business since 2006 in Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico. We have guests from all walks of life and reasons for visiting this historical city.

As we move to more full property rentals, we would like to welcome the GBLTQ community, traveling as a group of friends or couples that may enjoy the historical sites of the city as well as visiting with their friends in a private and secure environment.

Our gay Guadalajara guest house is located just outside of the Guadalajara downtown core. And although this is not always where many people in our community choose to stay, we tend to enjoy a different view of this fun city.

Colonia Chapalita is a middle-class neighborhood that is quiet at night for a good night’s rest yet has a lively restaurant scene that can often feel more familiar with those who like who tend not to want to cook. No less than 25 excellent restaurants are very near to our home and, walks around the neighborhood are safe at any time of the day.

Mexico City’s Palacio de Bella Artes – Keep Calm and Wander

Mexico City's Palacio de Bella Artes - Keep Calm and Wander

Inside Palacio de Bella Artes, you will find the grandest arts in Mexico City, or perhaps, the whole country. Its lavishly-ornamented facade combines Neo-classical and Art Noveau. 

Murals and paintings that were created by Mexico’s finest artists like Jose Clemente Orozco, Diego Rivera, and more are the most visible here.

From the outside, you’ll never find a building as beautiful as this all over Mexico. Its iconic colored dome has graced thousands of tourism promotion brochures, books, and travel blogs.

You can’t just look at it from outside and admire its marbled facade. You’ve got to go inside and discover the beauty that’s hiding there!

Mexico City’s Metropolitan Cathedral – Keep Calm and Wander

Mexico City's Metropolitan Cathedral - Keep Calm and Wander

Mexico City’s Metropolitan Cathedral is the oldest and largest cathedral in Latin America. Located right at the heart of the city, the church is an imposing structure that demands your attention.

For visitors, it’s just another tourist attraction, but for the locals, it is a symbol and soul of their faith. It’s also the seat of the Archdiocese of Mexico. Its complete name is Catedral Metropolitana de la Asuncion de la Santisima Virgen Maria a los cielos. That’s a mouthful, right?

In English, it is translated as Metropolitan Cathedral of the Assumption of the Most Blessed Virgin Mary into Heaven. Even in English, that is still a mouthful to say.

Vacationing In Cabo for Gay Families – 2TravelDads

Cabo for Gay Families -2TravelDads

We’ve been to Cabo San Lucas with our kids load of times, like, we’ve spent the equivalent of three months there as a family. You could say it’s our favorite family destination in Mexico. Since we’ve done it so much, we’ve decided it’s time we share our best tips for visiting this beachside resort town with kids.

I’ll say this right away, Cabo with kids is mostly about relaxation and swimming vs digging into Mexican culture and nature. There are lots of opportunities for that, but Cabo for gay families is more about a luxury destination than adventure.

How to Get to Cabo San Lucas

For those traveling from the west coast, getting there is pretty easy. There are direct flights from Seattle, San Francisco, Sacramento, Phoenix, Los Angeles and San Diego. Denver and Dallas also offer direct flights, so know that even east coasters should be able to find a good flight. When flying in, the airport is SJD (San Jose del Cabo), Los Cabos International Airport.

The airport is actually quite nice now (thanks Hurricane O’dele) and as long as you arrive early in the day or in the early evening, customs is pretty fast and smooth.

Gay San Miguel de Allende – The Nomadic Boys

Gay San Miguel de Allende - The Nomadic Boys

You heard it here first, guys. gay San Miguel de Allende is not just a delicious beer – it’s also a stunningly beautiful city located in the state of Guanajuato, Mexico, perfect for romantic getaways.

Founded in the early 16th century, San Miguel de Allende is dripping in history and culture. Many landmarks date back to periods of intense conflict, and the fact they’re still standing today is a testament to the will of the people. This is one UNESCO listed gem you need to check out!

San Miguel has also become super popular with gay couples thanks to its draw as a romantic getaway and even as a wedding destination. The people are famous for being super friendly, religious but curious and tolerant of everyone. So much so that gay owned businesses have flourished over the years, from artists, jewelry designers, painters, sculptors and art galleries.

This is why we love San Miguel and rate it as one of our absolute favourite gay cities in Mexico – a sort of cultural alternative to gay party town Puerto Vallarta! Here is our gay travel guide to San Miguel de Allende to inspire you and help you plan your visit to the “Heart of Mexico”.

Gay Puerto Vallarta, Mexico – wolfyy

gay Puerto Vallarta

Mexico’s classic gay travel destination, Puerto Vallarta lures the LGBT community with ritzy beach clubs, budget-friendly hotels and animated gay nightlife. This small city is a frequent choice for Americans and Canadians, especially in winter.

Before visiting Puerto Vallarta, I never fully understood what specifically makes this destination so attractive to gay men. Gay friends and acquaintances of mine always raved about Puerto Vallarta. I quickly found out why.

Puerto Vallarta is so popular because the city is quite conducive to groups of gay travelers. The gay scene here is physically compact. This makes things super easy for friends to coordinate plans.

gay area in Puerto Vallarta

The Puerto Vallarta Gay Area

The Puerto Vallarta gay area starts in Zona Romántica and continues southward to the border of the Amapas neighborhood. Most of the gay-friendly establishments and nightlife is within the five or so city blocks from the waterfront.

I highly recommend staying in the Puerto Vallarta gay area. It’s convenient and you’ll never run out of things to do. Furthermore, meeting up with friends should easier here since there are so many hotel and resort options in close proximity. You’ll have tons of options for restaurants, shopping and beach clubs, all within a 5-minute walk.

There’s much more to know about gay PV, so continue to wolfyy’s Puerto Vallarta gay guide to find the best hotels, resorts, experiences, and gay nightlife venues. Plus, local travel tips!
