Hip LGBTQ+-Friendly Hotels in Mexico

Rosas & Xocolate (MĂ©rida, Yucatan)

4 Stars | Website | MĂ©rida International Airport (MID)

17 | Free WiFi; 1 swimming pool; Fitness center | 1

Paseo de Montejo; MĂ©rida Cathedral; Plaza Altabrisa

The chromatic colonial town of MĂ©rida has welcomed the LGBTQ+ community for years. This embracement was only further solidified with host state Yucatan’s recent decision to legalize same-sex marriage. Because pink is the warmest color, stay at the all-pink Rosas & Xocolate Boutique Hotel & Spa: Each of the 17 rooms has a private outdoor jacuzzi, and the in-house restaurant delights gourmands at first bite.

Casa Hoyos

Casa Hoyos (San Miguel de Allende, Guanajuato)

4 Stars | Website | Querétaro International Airport

16 | Free WiFi; 1 swimming pool; Bar; Spa | 1

Plaza civica; JardĂ­n Allende; Historic Museum of San Miguel de Allende

San Miguel de Allende’s well-kept Spanish Colonial-style architecture, artist community, and restaurant scene galvanizes American travelers to trade in their Mexican beach vacation for an inland yet culturally rich one. Here, 16-key boutique hotel Casa Hoyos employs a design that melds contemporary Mexico with colonial reimagination. Visit rooftop bar Bekeb for city views and refined cocktails: Owner Fabiola Padilla, a former mixologist at famous NYC bar Cosme who is heavily involved in Mexico’s LGBTQ+ community, welcomes queer travelers with open arms.

Nestled on the coastline of the Mexican state of Oaxaca, Zipolite attracts queer travelers from near and far: Hosting Mexico’s only nude beach and an array of gay-owned businesses are to thank. Stay right in front of the beach’s queer section at El Alquimista: a boutique hotel and restaurant that same-sex couples heavily frequent.

Maxwell Residences (Puerto Vallarta, Jalisco)
