A New Way to Vacation


VACAYA /vuh kai’ uh/ is a fresh new approach to LGBT+ travel, one focused entirely on you and creating memorable bespoke full-ship and full-resort travel experiences built around amazing destinations, stellar entertainment, world-class hospitality, and endless fun!



Although travel is limited at the moment and we’re all working on our physical distancing, we at VACAYA are looking forward to the day where we can all be together again. We want you to know that when you’re ready to travel, we’ll be ready and better than ever!

VACAYA’s MEXICO RESORT holiday provides the perfect post-quarantine getaway for those still a little weary of getting on a ship in the near future. Protocols are being developed industry-wide to ensure your safety and well-being while traveling. And UNICO Riviera Maya Resort is a property with a very large footprint. You’ll be able to find luxuriously quiet areas to relax all alone or take advantage of inventive new ways to come together with friends (at a safe distance, of course).

A New Way to Vacation

Yes, travel is evolving for all of us, and while your future holidays may not look exactly as they did in the past, rest assured The Vacayans will tackle each and every new guideline with verve and ingenuity to ensure you have a fantastic time. That is guaranteed.

Sailing February 13-20, 2021 from San Juan, Puerto Rico on Celebrity Summit, this 7-night cruise to Antigua, Martinique, Saint Lucia, and Barbados is sure to be the winter escape guests have been looking for! VACAYA charters the entire ship and dazzles with star-studded onboard entertainment which has been called out in the press for being VACAYA’s best kept secret.

Meet Jaymes Vaughan

Jaymes Vaughan joins The Vacayans as Cruise Director of our inaugural Ptown Cruise on Celebrity Summit. You’ll recognize Jaymes as co-host of Celebrity Page TV, from his frequent appearances on CBS’s The Talk, and as one of “The Chippendales” from the Emmy Award-winning series The Amazing Race.

Jaymes’ commitment to the LGBT community is evident through his work with The Dru Project, which honors Pulse Nightclub shooting victim Christopher Andrew Leinonen. The project’s mission is to strengthen gay straight alliances. Jaymes’ visibility in the gay community and his advocacy for LGBT issues perfectly align with VACAYA’s embrace of the entire LGBTQIAPK community, including straight allies.

Answers to your Questions
What sets VACAYA apart from other LGBT travel companies?
a choice!”
– Stephanie H.
Palm Springs, CA
Let's start with the fact that there are no other large-scale travel companies on earth serving the entire LGBTQIAPK community. VACAYA is the only one. Our award-winning leadership team, known as The Vacayans, is made up of real people – people who care, who listen, who do the right thing, and who act as your travel savvy companion. At VACAYA, we understand what’s important to you – fun, friends, adventure, and clear timely communication, all cornerstones of any great vacation. We believe in a traveler’s right to actually plan their vacation, so we’ll release our trips well over a year in advance and you’ll know party themes and entertainment many months before we ever set sail. We strive to provide you with all the tools you’ll need to have a great time. After all, this is your vacation and it should be a stress-free experience. No worries. No concerns. Just ease and fun at every turn.
Is VACAYA right for me?
“So happy to
find my tribe!”
– Dann T.
Minneapolis, MN
We at VACAYA believe life begins at the edge of your comfort zone. So we create a warm environment where ALL who believe “love is love” are welcome. You don’t have to be the son of Zeus coming down from Mt. Olympus to travel with us (but of course, those guys are welcome, too). At VACAYA, we are all mere mortals and we celebrate the great diversity within our community. Traveling with VACAYA is all about being completely comfortable in your own skin. No matter where you fall on the LGBT+ spectrum, and no matter whether you’re single, coupled, black, white, skinny, thick, or even straight, you’ll easily find a welcoming tribe within the VACAYA universe.
Is VACAYA a good value?
“That's a lot of
bang for the buck!”
– Darian C.
Provincetown, MA
Value is completely relative and altogether personal, of course, but you won’t find a more all-encompassing and multi-layered experience at this price anywhere on the planet. With first-class accommodations, stellar entertainment, fun friendly parties, and above all, world-class guest service, the VACAYA value simply can’t be beat.
What makes VACAYA so special?
“We are ready!”
– Jody B.
Fort Lauderdale, FL
VACAYA is about savoring the good times, building lifelong memories, appreciating great friends while making new ones, and giving back to the communities we visit. VACAYA is about discovering magical textures, tastes, smells, sites, and sounds of lands near and far… together. Sailing the seven seas or enjoying a resort that’s all ours is about the moments we spend connecting, laughing, and living life to the fullest. Its possibilities are endless and exciting. Sensual. Life changing. These experiences open our minds, unify our rhythm, and bond us for life. This is the spirit of VACAYA.
