Liberal Minded Island
Saba, is perhaps one of the most liberal minded islands in the Caribbean. The multi-national student body and faculty of the Saba University School of Medicine might qaulify Saba for the Guiness Book of World Records with having the highest per capital passport holders on the planet. Look forward to an enthnic diverse populous within the friendly local culture--which also translates to excellent food and restaurant options.
And, Saba is
not only gay friendly to its tourists but has a local gay and lesbian community. Unlike some Caribbean destinations, the gay friendly attitude is not a recent marketing ploy; it's just the way it is. Whether gay or straight, people don't come to Saba to get picked up at a limbo bar or dance the night away. Saba is chosen for its incredible beauty, peacefulness, fantastic scuba diving and nature walks. Without the marketing might and advertising dollars of larger destinations, only the few discerning travelers discover this gem.
Saba's title "The Unspoiled Queen" reflects its pristine nature (above and below) and the proud people that keep it this way. The nickname also makes for a great souvenir license plate...Saba, a step back, but not by any means backward--life the way it used to be yet with the comfort and conveniences you need.
