Why Toronto?

LesbiFriends need to turnup every so often and Toronto’s annual Caribbean carnival is the perfect place to do it. It is nice to travel and see things but it there is nothing like going to another country and truly feeling like a part of the culture and like you are one of the locals and understanding the heartbeat of the city. That is how it feels to go to Caribana and be swept up in the famous parade, whether you are winding on the sidelines or marching with the band in a decked-out bead-studded costume with full glam makeup. Come with LesbiFriends to Caribana and you will have a travel experience that you will always remember.

While the option is there for you to get a single occupancy room if you choose, by no means do you have to select it if traveling alone. We understand that the extra money spent in getting your own room takes away from the money available for you to splurge while on vacation.

For that reason, we extend each traveler the option of having us pair you with a suitable roommate for no additional cost. Roommates are paired based upon the answers to their personality questions on their registration form, as well as their ages and even astrological signs. Prior to departing you will be given the contact information of your roommate, giving each of you the opportunity to get properly acquainted.


Do you know someone who may be interested in joining our trip but has not been to a LesbiFriend event or trip? Here is your chance to save a little money while bringing them on a trip of a lifetime!

For every traveler that you refer to our trip, you can subtract $50 from the cost of your trip. There is no limit to the amount of people you can bring, as long as that person has not already signed up with LesbiFriends.

Be sure to tell your friend to enter your name in the registration form under “How did you hear about this trip?”.

Your $50 discount will be returned to you once both you and your referrals have paid in full.
