Great News!

I have long wondered about gay friendly areas there, we have actually not been due to the concerns. Now I feel like a trip is in order to see this place!

Thanks for the info!

This is good news. Was in SXM in April and was told that the only gay lodging option was the Royal Turtle which is in a not-so-great location, i.e. behind an AVIS dealership by the airport.

I did think the La Sammana was very gay-friendly. There were several gay couples there exhibiting PDA and no one batted an eye.

Good to hear - I will be at La Samana with my partner in January.

Make sure you read previous threads on this island posted in this forum.

I still have concerns for many Caribbean Islands and their attitude to Gays and Lesbians - St Kittts and Saba being the odd exceptions.

That being said, the French half of SXM seemed to me more friendly and tolerant than the Dutch - strange when you think about it.
