For anyone who’s not familiar with gay San Juan – Babylon was a very well-known gay club outside of the tourist areas which was very popular for many years. Since it was close to the suburbs – it meant much easier access for the local LGBT community than driving all the way into San Juan.
When the owner moved the club to San Juan’s Arts District, he changed the name to Temptation, we thought Babylon San Juan would make a great name for a gay guide to San Juan. Most existing online guides to San Juan were maintained from outside Puerto Rico and very outdated – some listing clubs that have been closed for decades.
I know that when I travel – its never easy to tell what guides are current or outdated – so we decided to create a site that would be updated as soon as anything changed in the LGBT community. This way, LGBT visitors will have current and reliable information when exploring ‘the other side of the highway’ from Condado and Ocean Park tourist areas.
Since our hotel/tourism consulting company – Caribbean Consulting is located near all the bars and we love going out and exploring gay San Juan, we were sure that we could provide the most up-to-date guide possible.
We’re just getting started – so if you have any comments, suggestions or rants – we’re open to suggestions!
