We are two gay women who are trading a timeshare in CostaRica. All on the beach but we would also like to see the area not just the resort, without spending our vacation in a car. Can anyone advise as to which of these areas would be a good choice?

In Costa Rica the situation facing gay and lesbian travelers is better than in most Central American countries, and some areas of the country — particularly Quepos and Parque Nacional Manuel Antonio — have been gay vacation destinations for two decades. Homosexual acts are legal, and in Costa Rica became the first country in Central America to recognize gay relationships. Same-sex couples are unlikely to be the subject of harassment, though public displays of affection might attract unwanted attention.
Overview Costa Rica is on the leading edge of the gay rights movement in Central America, with the capital city of San Jose home to a fledgling gay bar and club scene. But nothing shows off this trend better than lovely Manuel Antonio, a coastal beach town that has become the Costa Rican version of Key West. Because Costa Rica remains a socially conservative, Catholic country, the LGBT communities here tend to be rather discreet, but no so in Manuel Antonio, where seeing boys holding hands on the street is common and accepted.
