When most people think Costa Rica, they think of beaches and sun. Although these are among the top highlights, gay-owned and gay-operated, Toronto-based Out Adventures offers a gay tour for those seeking both relaxation and adventure in this stunning, verdant, safe, and friendly country.
Few countries offer the diversity that Costa Rica does where you can watch a sophisticated gay show in San Jose one day, discover La Fortuna by bicycle the next, zip over the mist-shrouded rainforest in Monteverde after that and finish with rest and relaxation on the beaches of Manuel Antonio National Park.
This tour runs a few times per year and the company limits its group size to 12, claiming that a more authentic experience is achieved while traveling in smaller groups, and also with a local leader from beginning to end. Note that the February departure will also be accompanied by handsome, gregarious Out Adventure co-founder Robert Sharp.
