With recreational cannabis making gains across the Americas, and medical legalization and decriminalization taking hold elsewhere around the globe, it’s just the beginning for the budding industry that is and will be pot tourism. Obviously, there are lots of miles yet to go before you’re smoking a joint at the St. Regis. Cities and states are still trying to determine public consumption and social use regulations, so as a tourist to a legal city, the challenge remains: you can buy it, however, you can’t smoke it. Anywhere. (Full disclosure: I used to be nearly arrested after vaporizing in a Vail hotel room in 2013 and have to utilize the existing towel-under-the-door trick on occasion).
A few cannabis-friendly Airbnb listings will be a consequence of a fast Internet search of the destination city, although the company does not include that as being an official filter and declined to comment on its stance with this story. Meanwhile, cannabis-centric listing sites like the Travel Joint and Bud and Breakfast have acquired the slack, offering databases of listings and bespoke experiences specifically for marijuana-minded travelers. While it can be tricky to discover accommodations which can be 420 Tours, the event is definitely worth it once you do. Nowhere is that truer than for that nine incredible locations below.
From those providing cannabis upon arrival and smoking accessories in-room to color-changing hot tubs as well as a guided excursion to Bob Marley’s favorite swimming spot, we trawled through hundreds of listings to discover some seriously stellar and officially cannabis-friendly options. Here’s the international guide for where you should check in on your next vacation.
Going to the start of it all? Then you’ll want to remain in the center of this all at this two-story luxury loft located just one single block from Coors Field and within walking distance towards the It neighborhood of RiNo. Smoking flower is allowed inside, but you’ll want to have much of your sessions on the roof deck for views of downtown from the jacuzzi-complete with color-changing lights. On the other hand, should you want a hotel, the Magnolia is the greatest from the few in Denver that allow vaporizing in-room.
As arguably the tropical destination for cannabis smokers, the plant itself is technically still illegal in Jamaica, and few resorts officially claim 420-friendly status (although even at the five-star properties, some staff offer up herb immediately upon check-in). Steer clear of tour operators like Hot Box Jamaica, which operates its very own lodge (and is a horror story for the next time) and head for the lax Little Bay Cabins away from Negril. Here, you’ll find an untouched slice of true Rasta culture so special, Bob Marley himself had his beach house with this very shore. The rustic resort even offers a tour that’ll take you to go to its remaining mqjtnj and then for a swim in the personal swimming cave.
An expansive western lodge is precisely how to get your trip towards the high country up a notch. Five bedrooms accommodate up to 11 guests to have an ultimate mountain escape with family or a crew of friends. Cannabis and a vaporizer are supplied for guests, which you may consume inside-whether its cozied up nearby the double-height fireplace within the soaring great room or in the open chef’s kitchen while whipping up a property-cooked feast. Outside, you’ll look for a spa, a pond for ice skating (which is stocked with fish through the summer), direct river access, and plenty of breathtaking spots to spark up.
One of many few dedicated cannabis-friendly Airbnb listings, this host has gained glowing reviews for his cannabis-welcome haute hippie space. The non-public entry guest room is equipped with each of the comforts of any luxury hotel, but here, the neighborhood spaces stick out. All cannabis smoking accessories are provided, together with “the essentials for ultimate relaxation” such as art supplies, yoga mats, Bose speakers, nightly campfires, and a saltwater outdoor jacuzzi.
