Ever since the fabled romance of Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton here in 1961, Puerto Vallarta has symbolized the perfect tropical honeymoon destination for straight couples. As the leading international travel destination for gay and lesbian US tourists, it is now poised to welcome gay honeymooners with open arms. As a recent Casa Cupula guest opined in his online blog “I’ve never felt safer – not even in San Francisco – to just be me. American cities could learn a lot from the hospitality of Vallarta.” Many gay couples are also planning to hold a formal, symbolic wedding ceremony in Vallarta with family, friends and all the trimmings after doing the official work in California.
“We think many gay newlyweds will prefer to stay in a gay and lesbian resort where they are truly welcomed and comfortable,” said Don Pickens, founder and Principal of Milagro Properties. “With gourmet food and beverage services and lots of beautiful event space, we are committed to provide everything newlyweds want.”
Casa Cupula offers honeymoon packages ranging from the Celebration Package at $190 USD (chilled bottle of Champagne, flowers, and locally made gourmet Chocolates upon arrival) to the three night Cupula Honeymoon Escape at $2195 (Champagne, Chocolate covered strawberries, flowers, gourmet breakfast in bed each morning, romantic aromatherapy candles, private dinner on the rooftop terrace, in-room couples massage, and 3 nights in the Penthouse Suite). Wedding and reception packages with all the trimmings can also be organized with group rates for 8 to 40 guests.
“It’s fun to help our guests plan their special occasion,” said Sales Manager Krista Magnusson. “But the kinds of events our guests are planning are as individual as they are. Since tradition isn’t always the guiding principal, we’re focused on working with couples to help them organize exactly what they want, whether it’s a simple ceremony on the beach, or in our private garden with sweeping views of Banderas Bay, or a full-fledged white wedding with all the trimmings.”
As one of the world’s finest resort hotels for gay men, lesbians and friends, Casa Cupula has built a reputation since 2002 for services and luxury equal to any mainstream 5 star resort. The Private Residences at Casa Cupula offers a way to combine the best of both worlds: hotel living with the benefits of vacation home ownership.
