Every traveller requires the same amount of care and attention. Honeymooners will usually require privacy on their trip; families value stability and safety in a region; a female solo traveller might want to consider a country where she will feel secure; and same-sex couples will want to explore places in which they can be comfortable and relaxed.
Same-sex travel is something with which we’re very familiar. Aside from many of our clients travelling in same-sex couples (including the first ever people we planned a holiday for, back in 2008), several of our team are LGBT travellers.
We understand what it’s like to journey to a destination where you might not know what is locally accepted. That’s what we’re here for: to make your trip easy and comfortable, and to make your travels inspirational and immersive.
Our team are passionate about making sure every trip is perfect. We listen to what you’re looking for and what you want from your travels, as well as any concerns you might have, and work with you to plan a trip you’ll remember forever.
I watched the Jacada videos online and it talked about personal attention to detail and really taking into account what the client wants. Even on such short notice and with our somewhat complicated requests with our 3-year-old, you’ve made it work and we are grateful to have such a wonderful itinerary. It’ll be my first time back home in 20 years and I can’t wait.Garon, James & Matteo, March 2016
Java is amazing. We enjoyed a 4-hour bike ride this morning visiting much of the agriculture region and several villages. I can’t get over how nice the people are here. Everyone smiled and said hello as we passed them by…so warm and genuine.Mark & Wes, September 2014
We have to say that we are extremely impressed by the attention to detail that permeated the trip. Everywhere we went, restaurants and hotels, they knew it was our honeymoon, greeted us with a smile and open arms, and treated us with exclusive service.Juan & TJ, January 2015
All the countries we work with are suitable for same-sex travel, though some are more relaxed than others. Here are some of our top picks for LGBT travellers.
This country has it all: some of the world’s finest wines; a tantalising foodie scene; staggering scenery; epic Big Five safaris; and the most luxurious hotels and lodges on the continent. Cape Town is easily one of the world’s most stunning cities, embraced as it is by mountains and the ocean.
When it comes to a combination of beaches and adventure, Thailand is hard to beat. Thailand has always been one of the most accepting, friendly and open countries for all kinds of travellers, which has cemented its popularity over the past couple of decades.
The surfing around the south coast is amongst the world’s best – but if you’d just as soon lie on a sun-bleached beach, that’s fine too. The centre of Bali is covered in lush rice terraces and temple-filled Ubud is peppered with Zen-like wellness retreats and luxury hotels.
In the energetic, glamourous areas of Ipanema and Leblon, the days are defined by beach volleyball, surfing, tanning and beach-side workouts. When night falls, the locals head to the city’s top-notch restaurants, swanky bars and sexy samba hangouts.
San Sebastian was a 2016 Europe capital of culture, which simply provides one further reason to travel to this small seaside town with a dynamite food scene. Spain generally has long been an LGBT favourite due to the fact that most of the major cities have thriving, fun LGBT areas, popular with everyone.
Buenos Aires is the launch pad for all tours to Argentina, but also so much more, with its plethora of world-best steak houses, swanky bars in Art Deco mansions, and fine art-focused luxury hotels.
