puerto-vallarta-pride-2016-parade-1

It’s not just the 19 gay bars and clubs that make the Mexican Pacific Coast destination of Puerto Vallarta a gay mecca, but they certainly help and keep the evenings entertaining. After spending a few days in PV for its annual Pride festivities, this year with a 15-day agenda that brought together thousands of locals and visitors for the Pride parade and to celebrate this year’s approval of same-sex marriage in the state of Jalisco (where Puerto Vallarta is located), I really got to see the power of the beach escape for the LGBT community – and how it’s been blossoming for decades.

When planning the trip with Gray Line, I of course made sure to include the Blue Lagoon on my list of to-dos, and to see different national parks, waterfalls, the glacier and other natural wonders Iceland has. Some surprises to me were the unique horses, the amazing food (hands down the best dairy I’ve ever had), and how cool the black sand beaches were.

After visiting Panama for the first time just before my birthday this year while on a fantastic trip hosted by Superfeet (photo diary to come soon!), I realized how many different parts in Latin America I’ve gotten to visit and how it was wonderful to visit them while in my twenties.

Carnival-Cruise-Deck-Sunshine

Just before the holidays, I joined a few other bloggers as part of a Men Who Blog trip to experience the Carnival Sunshine ship. We journeyed on an eight-day cruise through the southern Caribbean with stops Aruba, Bonaire, and Grand Turk with days at sea to experience all the ship had to offer. This was my first my cruise as a grown up, with my previous cruise adventure being one when I was a young teen (about a decade ago since I’m still a twenty-something). After flying into Fort Lauderdale from Westchester, going on the bus shuttle to the dock, and checking into the cruise, my adventure started.
