Belize is rapidly becoming a thriving destination for the LGBQT community, and there’s plenty of reasons for that. The diverse population has created a culture that’s accepting of differences and hospitable to just about everyone, and you can expect to be treated with open arms just about anywhere you go within the country. But being welcoming and being fun are two very different things. Fortunately, Belize is practically teeming with activities for gay travelers regardless of their interests.
But just because Belize is gay-friendly doesn’t mean that its major cities and towns are thriving with gay culture and activities. Despite the populace’s tolerant nature, the country itself is lacking in bars and events tailored to the LGBQT community. That’s why it’s important to set up in a home base where you can connect with like-minded individuals and feel comfortable in your own skin. Yok Ha doesn’t discriminate, and we’re welcoming to all members of the gay community. Whether you’re looking to meet up with other gay travelers before you set out on an afternoon expedition or simply spend your time somewhere where you know you can feel comfortable being yourself, Yok Ha has you covered.
We’re on a secluded three-acre island rich with opportunities for adventure. Whether you’re looking to go fishing, scuba diving, or snorkeling, you can do so right off the caye, but if you’re looking to venture further out, it’s eminently convenient. Hop into one of our complimentary kayaks to explore the surrounding islands, or stop by the help desk to speak with one of our friendly representatives and register for a half-day or full-day tour. Visit the world’s first jaguar preserve, venture into some of the most awe-inspiring Maya ruins in existence, or set out among the winding cave waters on a tubing expedition. Whatever you’re looking to do, we’re here to assist you. If you’re looking to soak up some local culture, our resort is just a short boat ride from the cultural capital of Dangriga.
Maybe you’re just looking for a little solitude? Our five bright cabanas are secluded and richly accommodated, but if you’re looking to get away from it all with that special someone, you’ll want to check out the remote Loa cabana. Built with couples in mind, this love nest includes a private outdoor shower and a private deck that doubles as a swimming cove.
At Yok Ha, we understand that gay travelers want what every traveler to Belize wants: the opportunity to set their own itinerary and recharge their batteries in a way that suits them. Get in touch with us today, and let us help you plan the vacation you’ve always dreamed of.
