My partner and I booked a (non-refundable) 10-day trip to Beaches Turks & Caicos last night for our daughters' Spring Break in March. Being from Toronto and usually spending family vacations in major US cities and Mexico, we sometimes forget that gay families are not so 'mainstream' elsewhere in the world. Something clicked in my mind this morning to check, and I have since been feverishly googling and reading that both Turks & Caicos as well as Beaches' parent company, Sandals, are not very gay-friendly.
As my anxiety is now through the roof over what could possibly happen, I am hoping that someone on the Trip Advisor forum has seen gay families checked in to Beaches. I am assuming that if we do not leave the resort, safety will not be an issue. Should we be concerned about issues with staff at the resort? I am doubting my ability to keep up a charade as the nanny, <insert nervous laughter here>.
Any advice or experience would be greatly appreciated, and hopefully will ease my nerves a little bit!
