San Jose/Central Valley

The majority of Costa Ricans live either in the capital San José or the surrounding central valley so it is no surprise that the majority of establishments catering to gay and lesbians are located here. Most of the action is centered in San José but the other major cities of Heredia, Alajuela and Cartago have plenty of gay people too albeit less in the way of gay nightlife.


Where the boys (and girls) are

About 70% of Costa Ricans live either in the capital San José or the surrounding central valley cities so it is no surprise that the majority of establishments catering to gay and lesbians are located there.

Most of the action is centered in San José but the other major cities of Heredia, Alajuela and Cartago have plenty of gay people too if not much in the way of gay nightlife.

As well, some of the smaller towns in the valley have attracted many expats who prefer cooler temperatures and pastoral or mountain settings to the beach towns so you’ll also find several interesting gay owned B&Bs; or small inns in the area.
