The internationally popular gay travel blog, Travels of Adam, has partnered with the International Gay and Lesbian Travel Association and GayCostaRica.com to give away a 6-day, 5-night gay holiday to Costa Rica.
Costa Rica is one of Central America’s most LGBT-friendly destinations. The capital, San José, is home to a number of different gay bars and clubs—from the mega-discotheques to the small hipster cafés. Just a short 2-hour drive from the capital city is the gay beach destination of Manuel Antonio. Famous for its gay-friendly hotels, nightlife and gay beaches, the area is popular with LGBT tourists. In addition to being a gay travel hotspot, Manuel Antonio is home to Costa Rica’s most popular national park where monkeys, sloths, raccoons and other animals are easily spotted along the park’s expansive and beautiful beaches.
Gay-friendly businesses operate throughout the country, though San José and Manuel Antonio are Costa Rica’s most popular gay destinations. To find gay-friendly businesses, check out the IGLTA’s “Plan Your Trip” feature. Just search for Costa Rica and you’ll find a directory of LGBT-friendly businesses, from gay hotels to tour operators.
