The Caribbean overflows with beautiful beaches surrounding countless island escapes, but there’s more culture and adventure to be found in neighbouring Central America, particularly in Costa Rica. Take advantage of the lush rainforest by exploring the canopy on ziplines and hanging bridges, riding horses through trails on the forest floor, or spending a day of quiet reflection together with a certified forest bathing guide. Swim in waterfalls, spot monkeys, and visit a volcano, too. If you do need a day (or more) to just relax quietly together, you’ll still find swoon-worthy beaches along the country’s coasts, especially in the province of Guanacaste. Inland, San Jose is the capital city and home to a strong LGBTQ+ economy. Though there’s no designated gaybourhood, you’ll find community-centric events and venues throughout. The trendy Escalante neighbourhood has a higher concentration of these, along with buzzy bistros, cosy corners, and romantic architecture.
