Costa Rica: Embrace and Explore

Costa Rica is one of my favorite places on the planet, but I think that has more to do with who I am when I'm there than the destination itself.

It's the kind of place that demands you to fully surrender to it, giving into its relaxed lifestyle, relinquishing to its natural beauty, and fully appreciating the stunning landscapes that surround you. It invites you, it enchants you, and it grips you until your only option is just let go. Trust me, you'll be sipping a cold Imperial, zip-lining through the forest canopy, and swimming in the pool of a towering waterfall before you can say "pura vida."

In the past decade, Costa Rica has blossomed into a gay hot spot, quickly becoming the most gay-friendly country in Central America. That being said, it is still a conservative, Catholic country so PDA (especially in rural areas) is frowned upon...

You also don't want to miss...

Grab your speedo and set sail with us as we cruise the Caribbean, and finally sit back, relax and pitch a tent, as we go camping throughout the Midwest, This is going to be a great Summer for a Gaycation!

But, as queer elders enter later life, they may need to find new ways to protect and preserve their mental health.
