“Puerto Rico embraces diversity in every sense of the word; it’s built into our DNA as a destination,” said Leah Chandler, chief marketing officer at Discover Puerto Rico (discoverpuertorico.com), the destination’s tourism marketing organization. “The Island boasts a lively LGBTQ+ scene, with plenty of activities and attractions that promise a diverse and inclusive experience, ultimately earning us recognition as one of the top gay-friendly destinations in the Caribbean.
