The eight, which are mainly small hotels, villas and guest houses spread across the island, are welcoming gay and lesbian couples. While many locals still may not be too fond of the idea, it does open the destination up to an estimated $64.5 billion annual market. According to the article, this segment can fit the classic definition of DINKs (Dual Income, No Kids) households. This relative absence of children leads to a greater potential for leisure travel due to resulting higher levels of disposable income.
