Top 5 reasons why Costa Rica is All-Inclusive: LGBT+

The Pura Vida country lives by its motto: pure life. A life style to live by, not because there is no stress in the lives of Ticos, but because you get the vibe of living one day at a time to the fullest.

Costa Rica has been known as the “Centralamerica Switzerland” because of its lack of military forces, economic growth, highest rate in education within the Central American region, and it being declared the safest country in Latin America. It is also one of the most open-minded countries that promotes tolerance and acceptance, which means, it is the perfect gay friendly destination for your next, may we say gaycation!

Here are our top 5 reasons to visit Costa Rica:

LGBT+ nightlife

Costa Rica’s Capital City, San Jose, has an utmost collection of exclusive gay bars, discos and restaurants, not to mention that the majority of the other places are fully 100% gay friendly, as well as so many hotels to choose from.

Beach towns like Jaco and Manuel Antonio in the Central Pacific offer an urban style of gallivanting to experience fun galore, and at Manuel Antonio, you will be able to find a cluster of gay spots such as hetero-friendly resorts and clubs.

Proud Parade

Every year, San Jose hosts its annual Pride Parade, known locally as A March for Diversity, La Marcha por la Diversidad in Spanish. Just in 2017, more than 100,000 people joined in the march. A complete family friendly (kids welcome) celebration, to support the prominent Costa Rican LGBT+ community.


LGBT+ Friendly Brands

Just like us at Destination Costa Rica, many other brands in the

country are LGBT+ friendly. From those that cater products and services to families, to those that specialize on particular niches like sports, technology, cuisine, and so many others. Here at DCR, we provide you with hotels and tours that are in line with our LGBT+ spirit of service!

LGBT+ Couples are always welcomed

Costa Rica has always a friendly tour and hotel for you to stay. We recently collaborated with The Globetrotter Guys; a UK married gay couple that toured Costa Rica from corner to corner with our help, as we designed their program to provide them a stress free time. Read all about it in their blog and discover why traveling with us is stress free as they recommend using our services.

A Romantic Getaway

The unique experiences for romance are always numero uno. A honeymoon or a vacation, you can get from fine dining floating on a platform, to a sunset catamaran for two, relaxation at natural hot springs, or a romantic exhilarating adventure at a river or canyon. We have the complete collection of hotels to stay at everywhere in the country, where you and your loved one will feel welcomed and comfortable.

Planning your wedding in Costa Rica, doesn’t have to be a hassle, with us, it is a breeze, and, although same-sex marriages are still not legally recognized, Costa Rica is the upfront of making them a reality in the near future, since back in 2015, a city court approved a gay’s union as a common law marriage.

We understand that LGBT+ couples want the same romantic trips that any other couple in love would want: amazing scenery, a one-of-a-kind journey, delicious food, fabulous and exciting experiences, all in full romance while in Costa Rica. We give you that and so much more
