And like for the recently allowed gay marriage in New York city, a wonderful gift is given by the Caribbean-based Villa Rainbow (small luxury exclusively gay-male guesthouse of St Martin) to all new same-sex couples recognized in Mexico. They can each receive a 3 nights package valid on a week stay.
