Riviera Nayarit named best LGBT+ beach destination in Mexico at the LGBT+ Travel Awards 2022

The maximum award is taken by the Riviera Nayarit as the best beach destination. Two of its properties also earned the gold award: The St. Regis Punta Mita Resorts the best luxury hotel and the Grand Velas Riviera Nayarit in the Hotel We Love category. The popular destination was also nominated in different categories: Riviera Nayarit as Best Tourism Board and Best Concept Hotel for the Hard Rock Hotel.

The LGBT+ Travel Awards Mexico 2022 took place in Guadalajara, Mexico on the 23rd of February at the Conjunto Santander of Scenic Arts. They are organised by UNET LGBT+: A non-governmental association bringing together a collective of Mexican LGBT+ Tourism entrepreneurs, inclusive Destinations and Companies. Winners are voted for by the public online.

Juan Antonio Arellano – President of UNET LBGT+ said: “The Riviera Nayarit and the whole of the state of Nayarit embrace diversity, inclusion and respect for all. Their visitors will be able to witness it. Nayarit is a state with a tourism offer that is full of magic and beauty not only thanks to its touristic attractions but also thanks to the rich heritage of the living indigenous cultures, the Wixárika people (also known as Huichol people)”.

In the Huichol culture, for example, unions between two people are unions between their souls, regardless of their gender.

In Nayarit we celebrate LOVE: SAME SEX MARRIAGE is protected by the state’s constitution and civil law. Riviera Nayarit has become a favourite destination for same sex weddings and celebrations.
