A luxury hotel catering exclusively to male gay tourists will open in January on Mexico's Riviera Maya, Spanish news agency EFE reported.

The 94-room Adonis Tulum hotel near the Tulum archaeological zone will serve male gay tourists exclusively.

“The hotel is uniquely for men,” Patrick Lurenz, the hotel's general director, said. “That is to say, only homosexual couples are accepted, it's not for women, although among our personnel we have heterosexual men and women and all have received specialized training to avoid having our guests feel uncomfortable or discriminated against.”

It is the first such hotel in the state of Quintana Roo, and is expected to provide 100 direct jobs.

All Mexican states recognize the marriages of gay and lesbian couples celebrated in Mexico City, which legalized the institution last December. The city announced this week that gay & lesbian tourism has soared since the law went into effect in March.

“It seems to me that it's positive that in Mexico there is an opening for homosexuals,” Lurenz added. “Finally we're talking about human beings who pay taxes, who create companies. I hope that some day unions between same-sex couples will be a federal law and not just on the state level.”

Tulum is less than a 2 hours drive from Cancun, which is also in the state of Quintana Roo.
