There’s nothing like sitting on a quiet beach sipping pina colada’s and watching beautiful men!

Pack your bags and check out the new Costa Rica! In recent years, they have become more gay
friendly and a top travel destination for gay tourists. And gays are moving there and/or buying
homes there.
Costa Rica has hotels and resorts near the beach,  and rain forest: many of  the top
Costa Rica hotels and resorts, sportfishing boats, canopy tours & dining, are very affordable.  
Beaches, surfing, scuba diving, villa rentals, rico resorts & all-inclusive hotels –  the choices are
plenty!.  Find a luxury resort, beach hotels, or all-inclusive hotels, exotic villas and rental houses –
there are many choices here. Combine a Costa Rican vacation with a look at local  real estate.
Many gays and lesbians are buying property here! Go deep sea fishing for marlin and sailfish
on a fishing charter from Quepos or Jaco.

Costa Rican lesbians and gay men have made significant gains in the last ten years.
Although a gay traveler who was here in 1990 would hardly recognize gay life today,
paradoxes still abound. Gay and lesbian life may now be legally protected and thriving,
but the lives of lesbians and gay men remain divided between a supportive peer culture
and a national culture which still condemns and vilifies them.  – But with gay tourism
pouring in, things have changed. The gay scene in Costa Rica is really beginning to blossom.
In San José, you can choose between any one of a dozen downtown bars and clubs, and
even a couple saunas!

 San José has everything that a North American city has for gay people. Gay bars, discos,
gyms, boutiques, organizations, hotels, and restaurants. It also has museums of history,
science, and art that are like none other on the planet. For example, the Gold Museum is
four stories underground below the Plaza de la Cultura. This “museum in a vault” contains
over 2000 priceless, pre-Columbian gold artifacts. The Jade Museum, located on the 11th
floor of the National Insurance Building, (INS), has the world’s largest collection of
pre-Columbian jade.


The variety of food and restaurants has been another surprising improvement over the years.
Costa Rica has always been blessed with more wonderful and exotic fresh fruits and vegetables
than you can imagine. New combinations and the cooking styles from numerous cultures have
created an endless variety. The seafood is good and fresh. Chicken is, well, chicken. The beef
is lean and a bit chewy, since Tico cows do a lot of walking and do not have the tasty fat
marbled through the meat, like Gringo cows! There are lots of gay and gay friendly
restaurants here.


No matter what you are in the mood for, a volcano tour, deep sea-diving, a rainforest aerial
tram, laying on the gay beach Manuel Antonio, visit the turtle sanctuary, sip cocktails at
the hour-long sunsets, go white water rafting, or visit the hot springs – Costa Rica has
something for everyone.
 Once you vacation here, you will want to buy something here! It’s spectacular!
