LGBTQ+ Puerto Rico


Puerto Rico is the most progressive island in the entire Caribbean, and San Juan, the most LGBTQIA-friendly within Puerto Rico.  

With 3.4 million people in Puerto Rico, it is also one of the most populated Caribbean islands.  Same sex marriage has been legal since 2015.

There are two large LGBT pride parades annually: one in a beach side western town, Cabo Rojo, and one in the capital, San Juan.  A third one is starting in 2019 in Ponce, and in 2019 there will be the first Winter Pride, totally unique to the Caribbean and world. 

Puerto Rico boasts the most LGBT businesses of any Caribbean island.  One of only two chamber of commerces in the Caribbean with LGBT members,  

Coqui del Mar is gay owned and gay managed.  We host occasional special events for Gay, Lesbian and or LGBT crowds and we welcome ALL guests and try to make everyone feel like family.  See below for further info on Puerto Rico pride events, gay bars in San Juan, LGBT support groups and LGBT beaches in Puerto Rico.

We Walk the Talk

At Coqui del Mar, we do more than SAY we support gay, lesbian and transgender rights…We actively support via annual donations to both the Human Rights Campaign and GLAAD, along with participating in San Juan’s Pride parade when possible, such as sponsoring the largest float in 2019 and sponsoring the same float in Cabo Rojo and the official after party.  We want everyone to feel among family during their stay here.
