I visited Costa Rica this past November and fell in love with the country—the food, the natural beauty, the beaches and the Tico culture. It’s no surprise that it tops so many “best of the world” lists. In a country that’s only the size of West Virginia, there are over 150 volcanic formations with seven active volcanos. It’s one of the most bio-diverse countries in the world, with 25% of the country dedicated to national parks and wildlife refuges. Not to mention the over 800 miles of coastline—on both the Atlantic and Pacific coasts.
During my November trip to Costa Rica, I spent 10 days exploring the beauty of Costa Rica. Several nights out for a taste of the gay nightlife of San José with a road trip out to the Pacific coast. A few days in Quepos and Manuel Antonio—considered one of the most LGBT-friendly destinations in Central America—and a trip up to the Poas Volcano crater (the largest active crater in the world).
My 10 days in Costa Rica were some of the most exciting days of my year. Costa Rica instills a certain amount of high expectations for any tourist, but the country delivered. It’s one of those special destinations that’s not just beautiful, but also exciting and enticing. That’s why I’m so excited to announce this exciting partnership with both the International Gay and Lesbian Travel Association and GayCostaRica.com. Your dream destination is just one click away!

Burlesque is its own unique form of art—one that often leaves a lasting impression. The stage presence of a burlesque performance is often unique and hard-to-mimic. Ask anyone who’s been to a burlesque show and they’ll often laugh and cry trying to retell about the performance, but it’s never as good as the original.
In a new book from indie publishers Book the Film, this uniqueness is perfectly...
Since studying Spanish intermittently throughout my life, I’ve picked up enough basic phrases and words to get by in most Spanish-speaking countries. But when visiting Costa Rica this past winter in the heart of Central America, I suddenly found myself speechless.
