Mexico Magical Merida Gay Weekend Tour Itinerary

Day 1 - Mérida, Mexico
Hola! Welcome to Mérida, the colourful capital of Mexico’s Yucatán State. Upon arrival at the airport, you’ll be transferred to our joining point hotel.

Mérida has a rich Mayan and colonial heritage, serving as a bridge between two very different cultures. It is one of Mexico’s culinary treasures, has become synonymous with art, and even has a popping late-night scene—mezcal anyone?!

Feel free to explore the city on your own before our 6PM welcome meeting.

Afterwards, we’ll wander over to a fantastic local restaurant for our official Welcome Dinner where we’ll enjoy regional specialties such as cochinita pibil, sopa de lima, poc chuc & papadzules.

Hotel: Casa Lucia Boutique Hotel, Merida

Day 2 - Mérida & Homún
After breakfast, a private transfer will take us to a nearby Mayan village.

Here we’ll ride through the jungle on uniquely Yucatán transportation (think motorcycle-meets-tuk tuk) to visit three cenotes (underground caves). Just inside these eerie caves are hidden, crystal clear pools of turquoise water. They glow from beams of light that stream in from cracks in the ceiling. They’re the perfect oasis to escape the hot Mexican sun.

Our guide will regale us with the stories and mysteries of these passageways, and we’ll have a chance to slip into those magical waters at least once.

Towel off, then we’ll refuel with a very special (and very authentic) lunch before visiting a traditional “drugstore,” where ancient Maya medicinal remedies are still prepared today.

All of the medicines are derived from natural plants, and prepared with knowledge that has been preserved and passed down by families living in this corner of the Yucatán.

Enjoy a free evening at leisure back in Mérida.

Uxmal Mexico gay tour


Day 3 - Mérida
Buenos días! Today you’re free to explore Mérida or the surrounding region on your own, or partake in a group excursion with your fellow travellers.

We may transport ourselves back a few centuries while tomb raiding the Uxmal Archaeological Site. Despite its historical significance, this is one of the least busy archeological sites in the Yucatán.

Alternatively, we could scoot over to the nearby town of Izamal, famous for its yellow walls and traditions.

Finally, if you choose to stick around Mérida, we highly recommend nibbling your way through the local market, and snooping around the city museum, Montejo’s House, and/or the cathedral. Step inside the Palacio del Gobierno to admire the murals by Fernando Castro Pacheco, a famous Mexican artist from Mérida.

Hotel: Casa Lucia Boutique Hotel, Merida


Mexico gay beach


Day 4 - Mérida & Celestún Biosphere Reserve
After breakfast, we’ll drive to the Caribbean coast, more specifically the Celestun Bird Sanctuary and Biosphere Reserve.

Together we’ll board boats and cruise the biosphere, learning about its unique flora and fauna while keeping our eyes peeled for the Yucatán woodpecker, tropical mockingbird, and hopefully a flamboyance of flamingos.

After the boat tour, we have free time for our own flamboyance on one of the region’s best beaches where we can soak up the sun for a few hours.

Back in Mérida, we’ve planned a very special evening, starting with our fiery farewell dinner at a locally-loved restaurant.

This is followed by a proper cantina crawl where we’ll sip and shimmy our way through the city’s lively LGBTQ-welcoming bars.

When the liquid confidence hits and our hips are feeling loose, we’ll sashay over to Mérida’s best gay club for one final blowout. Salud!

Trip Notes

How We Travel
Out Adventures is all about good times with likeminded guys. Whatever’s on the itinerary – from fireside camping to five-star decadence – our goal is to make the experience magical. We’re also committed to supporting the communities we visit by hiring local guides, staying at locally-owned accommodations when possible, and celebrating local cuisine. It all adds up to a great way to immerse yourself in the culture.

Mexico Visa
A visa is not typically required for American, Australian, British and Canadian citizens travelling to Mexico for fewer than 180 days. There may be exceptions, and all visas are the responsibility of the traveller.

Culture Shock
Mexico is an upper-middle-income country with infrastructure, values, customs and standards that may differ from what you’re accustomed to. While the country has come a very long way you should still expect heavy traffic, along with unanticipated inconveniences such as road closures from time-to-time. Please note our transportation may be altered, and/or our itinerary changed, due to such circumstances beyond our control.

Local LGBT Scene
Even though Mexico is a predominantly Catholic country, it has been one of the pioneers for LGBTQ+ rights and freedoms in Latin America. Marriage equality became legal in Mexico City in 2009, and in 2010, the Mexican Supreme Court ruled that same-sex marriages carried out legally in Mexico City must be recognized throughout the country. There are vibrant gay scenes in Mexico City and Puerto Vallarta, but the queer community will find general acceptance in other hotspots like the Yucatan Peninsula.

Expect the weather in Mérida to be hot, with daytime highs around 36C/96F in April, and 31C/87F in November. Both months fall within dry season, so rain should be very minimal.


Celestun gay tour


Required Vaccinations
Based on entry requirements, there are no vaccinations needed for Mexico. To determine if you should take preventative measures to reduce the risk of illness, you should consult your doctor or a travel medical clinic, as we cannot provide vaccination recommendations.

You will not need an international travel plug/adapter if travelling from Canada or the US.

Wi-Fi will be available at no cost at our hotels, and data plans are readily available through most international telecom providers.

Travel Insurance
For everybody's peace of mind, medical travel insurance is required on all Out Adventures tours. At a minimum, your travel insurance must provide cover against personal accident, death, medical expenses, emergency repatriation and personal liability, with a minimum medical coverage of US $200,000.

This trip includes breakfast daily, 1 Lunch and 2 Dinners. To keep things flexible, not all meals are included in the trip price. Although we typically dine together so that everybody can get a taste of everything, feel free to explore on your own…your guide will always have some restaurant recommendations.
