A travel agency has compiled a ranking of best countries for couples on their gay honeymoon. The Latin America Travel Company evaluated global destinations according to six LGBT-focused criteria, each graded out of five points, to determine a country’s LGBT Honeymoon Ranking.
No country scored the top mark of 30 points, but two came very close. Canada and New Zealand top the ranking, each of them scoring top marks for the criteria honeymoon popularity, LGBT travel friendly, marriage equality, forward thinking and romantic setting.
The ranking only included countries that have decriminalised homosexuality, which remains illegal in more than 70 countries or territories around the world.
No Asian country was included in the ranking, despite the recent decriminalisation of homosexuality in India, and only one country in the African continent, South Africa, made the list of best countries for gay couples on honeymoon.
Argentina topped the list for destinations in South America. “We were thrilled to see Argentina rank in the top 20,” commented the travel agency responsible for the ranking, which specialises in travels to Latin America.
