Whether it's cooking in the private home of a famous Brazilian chef, getting blessed by a real Inka shaman in a temple of Machu Picchu, or entering a private African Party on the banks of the Zambezi River by elephant back, Zoom Vacations® brings unmatched experiences, showing our travelers more than just a good time.
Zoom creates global vacations that feed the hearts, souls, and minds of our travelers.
Our travelers truly live the destination, while enjoying multi-sensory over-the-top events and excursions. Anyone can hop on a plane and visit the typical tourist attractions. That's not how we do things.
Our travelers join our tours because they want something more than the typical trip. They want to be inspired.
And of course, we research each aspect of our vacation packages to insure that every hotel, meal, excursion, and tour we provide is something that truly energizes and expands the imaginations of our guests, while providing camaraderie and connection to the destination and those around them.

Cuba: Havana, Cienfuegos, and Trinidad
April 19-26, 2013
Cuba has long captured the interest of gay travelers. Perhaps it is the old cars that traverse its streets, or its famous music, or unique cuisine. Or, perhaps it is because we've been told for so many years that we cannot go, and gay people do not like being told we can't do something! The fact is, you CAN go to Cuba LEGALLY.

Gay travel has seen remarkable changes and growth in the past decade. As a gay tour operator, this change has led to amazing opportunities in the kinds of lesbian and gay vacations that we are able to provide. For instance, lesbian and gay travel is now embraced in destinations and hotels where it wasn't just 10 years ago. All gay group tours and vacations can now offer the same (or perhaps even better) quality and breadth of experiences as our straight counterparts.
Zoom Vacations® offers fun, luxurious, affordable lesbian and all gay tours to the hottest destinations in the world. We understand that successful gay tours must entail personalized, sincere attention at every step of the journey, and getting to know our travelers is one of our favorite aspects of what we do. While we use the phrase gay vacations throughout this site, it may be more accurate to say that we provide gay-friendly travel (specifically gay-friendly tours). We encourage the friends and families of our gay travelers to come along, and we are always happy to assist gay-friendly travelers in any way we can.
As global prejudice continues to fall, lesbian and gay travel, and certainly travel in general, is evolving in exciting, powerful ways. Zoom Vacations® is poised to meet this evolution, providing the most modern, fun, stylish gay and lesbian vacations possible.
Our travelers say our trips are "over-the-top", "magical" and "the best trip I ever had". We create experiences unique to Zoom Vacations® that you simply won't find any place else. It's as if you are traveling with a best friend who lives in the destination you are visiting, and who is inviting you to the hottest events, taking you on the most incredible excursions, and introducing you to the best restaurants. When you travel with Zoom Vacations®, you leave all prior notions of touring behind, and prepare yourself for something truly magical.
