Counter culture at the beach

The Caribbean beach towns of Puerto Viejo and Cahuita have always attracted a counter-culture vibe and so have had a strong LGBT presence. Eco-tourism, yoga, massage and a great selection of gay and lesbian owned boutique style accommodations await you along with unbeatable beaches and spectacular nature.

If you need transport from San Jose to the Caribbean Coast, there are regular buses and shuttles as well as turboprop flights to Limon. You can see all the transport options between any two points in Costa Rica on our transport planner.
