Created by award-winning tourism and travel executives with nearly 100 years of combined experience in entertainment, hospitality, and travel, VACAYA offers LGBT+ travelers a new choice – one with an unprecedented and maniacal guest focus, perfectly tailored to the needs and desires of the LGBT+ community.
“We’re rewriting the playbook,” proclaims VACAYA CEO Randle Roper. “With only a few notable exceptions, options for our community have been severely limited. Now, LGBT+ travelers have a rock solid new choice. They’ve waited a long time for a guest-focused company like VACAYA to come along, and we can’t wait to share all we have in store!”
