As we have seen in other surveys, Beach locations are high on the list for post COVID-19 vacations. When asked “What kind of vacation do you plan this year?” The top responses are #1 Beach #2 City #3 Nature #4 LGBTQ. The beach is the top choice for a majority of LGBTQ travelers, right before urban destinations and city trips, nature adventures in the country side or in the mountains and last, LGBTQ events (like Puerto Vallarta gay pride and circuit parties have been canceled or postponed.) A closer look at the results reveals American travelers put Nature on Top of their list, when Europeans put the Beach #1. The youngest travelers (18-34 yo) are more likely to attend an LGBTQ event.
