Mendoza Gay Hotels – The Nomadic Boys

Mendoza Gay Hotels - The Nomadic Boys

Mendoza is the wine capital of Argentina. All those different Malbecs you tried at your favourite parilla in Buenos Aires (ours was Nicasia) were produced right here.

The region around Mendoza is the largest wine-producing area in Latin America and recognised as one of the wine capitals of the world. Most visitors head here for a wine pilgrimage, visiting the many bodegas and do lots of wine tasting. The city also has a small gay scene worth checking out but for us the real highlight was cycling around the beautiful countryside of Mendoza going from one bodega to another.

If you’re heading to Mendoza in February/March, be sure to check out the “Vendimia” grape harvesting festival. The city also has a gay festival alongside the Vendimia, which is one of the largest LGBTQ events in Argentina after Buenos Aires Pride. Check out Mendoza Tourism’s Facebook page for the latest information about it.

There are a variety of different accommodation options in and around Mendoza, with most places being friendly and relaxed towards gay travellers. Atfer spending 2 weeks in the wine region of Argentina, we’ve put together in this post our favourite Mendoza gay hotels, which we found to be welcoming towards us as a gay couple and were clearly used to hosting LGBTQ travellers.

Best Area to Stay in Mendoza

Mendoza isn’t huge, which makes it pretty easy to choose the area you’d most like to stay. For us it came down to deciding whether we’d base ourselves in downtown or in the surrounding countryside:

Downtown Mendoza: if you want to be in the heart of the action, close to restaurants and the nightlife then you’ll want to stay in the downtown area of Mendoza city. It’s easy to get around the city by foot and you can take a tour to the wineries in the surrounding countryside.

Countryside of Mendoza: if you’re looking for a more romantic stay and really want to experience the wine country of Mendoza, then you should choose one of the gorgeous wine hotels located outside the city, in Lujan de Cuyo or further in the Uco Valley. Here you’ll really be able to relax and enjoy plenty of wine tasting.
