Gay San Jose: Blossoming gay getaway
Just within the last decade, Costa Rica has blossomed into a tropical getaway for gays. The capital, San Jose, has welcomed their new visitors in tight shorts. Aside from a solid number of gay bars and clubs, the city also boasts saunas, an LGBT bookstore and community center as well as a handful of gay-owned B&B. There are also a couple of gay men-only resorts where clothing may be optional but meeting new friends is required.
The city, like most Catholic Central American places, is a bit on the conservative side - so discretion is advised--once you walk out of that safe gay place.
