Rio Grande

Quiet beaches, pristine lands, and high levels of luxury is what you’ll find in this hideaway sub-destination on the north shore of Puerto Rico. A convenient 30 minutes away from San Juan, it’s just close enough to the lively gay scene there to enjoy it thoroughly, but far enough to offer the privacy and seclusion of an upscale destination. Cut through by the Rio Grande for which it’s named, this destination feels even more remote than it actually is by also being a mere ten minutes from El Yunque National Forest. The only tropical rain forest within the United States National Forest System and a finalist in the New 7 Wonders of Nature, its greenery shades a wealth of attractions and activities for the adventurous vacationer. 

Good to Know

  • No gay scene to speak of, but generally inclusive
  • American civil rights laws forbid discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation in employment, public transportation and facilities, business transactions, and housing
