Mexico is one of the most visited countries for lesbian-gay tourists in Latin America.
According to the Mexican Secretariat of Tourism states the country receives around three and a half million tourists from the LGBTQ community annually. Mexico is only surpassed in Latin America by the cities of Rio de Janeiro and Buenos Aires.
Mexico has positioned itself as a long-haul travel destination for the LGBT+ community
Mexico’s culture draws tens of millions of visitors every year, from its colorful Day of the Dead celebrations to the national reverence for gastronomy that means there is something delicious to taste around almost every corner.
As a Latin American country, it might not be the first place that the phrase “LGBT+ travel destination” makes spring to mind, and of course, the Catholic church exerts a conservative influence, but legislatively it’s a different story.
