McDermont from Puerto Vallarta
Don't go on Mondays after 8:00 pm. It will be almost empty and very high chances you won't have a happy ending.
The place is pretty ok, but don't expect the quality of American or European saunas. The facilities are becoming old, but look reasonable clean.

An Unforgettable Trip in Costa Rica
We had Ernesto and he was fantastic in taking the ideas of what we wanted to do and the short time frame we had to do them and developing a plan for us to follow. Everything was organized for us and we have a clear itinerary to follow. We didn't have to worry about anything on our trip. Transportation, food, hotel, adventures, all covered and planned. We only had one hiccup with a hotel wanting payment, but they made a quick call to Gecko and it was handled in less than a minute. We had an unbelievable time in Costa Rica and it was in large part to Gecko Trail Adventures and the trip they put together for us.

DJ from San Jose
Entrada entre 3000 y 4000 colones, mejores dias son miercoles y viernes en mi experiencia.
dan unas sandalias limpias, candado con llave y una tela negra para la cintura.
Tiene jacuzzi, duchas, sauna, sauna seco, sala de proyeccion y cuartos comodos. La gente es muy amable y variados (jovenes, maduros, delgados, chubbies, osos, etc) El lugar ahora lo tienen bastante limpio y cuidado, solo que bastante oscuro pero es parte del ambiente.
Es bastante libre, si alguien te interesa solo le rosas el brazo y si le interesas lo podes llevar a un cuarto. Igual perfecto para estar tranquilo y charlar en grupo sin taboo

Location of Zona Rosa
If you want to visit Zona Rosa, ask the taxi to deliver you to the corner of Avenida 7 and Calle 2. Walk toward Avenida 9 and Zona Rosa is about 1/2 block on the right hand side. You will see the gated entrance. Pay your entrance fee and go in and explore. If you are not familiar with San Jose I recommend your firsts visit be during daylight hours. Daylight gives you a chance to get your bearings, find the bar, and its safer (this is not a really safe area of San Jose). After your first visit, you might prefer a night time visit. The action is hit or miss, but I have had more "hits" than "misses". If your focus is to go for the "sex" and to be slutty, you will probably have more fun than if you are looking for just pretty boys. Sometimes the clientele are older but they have hard cocks and enjoy sex. Other times the guys are younger and they also get into play. I'm older and have never had much of a problem connecting with the crowd, but then I go to service the cocks at the glory holes and to explore the dark room for more sleazy fun. This is by no means and "upscale" sex club, its a sleazy sex club and bar and you will have more fun if you just go with the flow and take (or give) to whoever is interested. A had cock is a hard cock and whether to take or deliver, its about the sex and not about the other guy. I've had fun with more mature guys (big uncut cocks and hot loads), and younger guys (also well hung and uncut), and often they want to give and take, and this can be really hot (and groups can occur in the darker recesses. Don't take a wallet or jewelry. Take a copy of your passport and keep your cash in your pocket - remember its dark and some guys are looking for something other than cock, but usually the guy who is cruising you wants to play. Have fun

Due to bad information.. I went on a tuesday because that is what I was told was a popular night.. It was anything but busy. If you have to been to Dallas you know of Bjs NXS trashy Tuesdays which are huge. So I was hoping for something similar. Anyways, the drags were anything but on point. And the dancers were sooo dull. They got up on stage but would do the same little dance or shake the entire song. Boring! Cover was 2000 colones, I think we may have got played because they give you a receipt you can use to get back in without paying cover and our number was pinned out. Confusing but whatever. Also the dancers did not get naked which is totally the only reason I even thought about going. Maybe it is better on a weekend night but I do not think I will be going back. No one used the black room that night and frankly I was too chicken shit to walk in there. You literally cannot see your hand from your face in there... Okay maybe I will go back to play in there on a popular night and I still had a solid time with some other tourists that were there. But like I say in all my posts on here, it does not take much for me for to have a good time!

Went on Wednesday and it was sooo dead until later. Since most people go out so much earlier here I was surprised. Either way I danced my ass off because the dance floor area is huge and has ac, which is rare here. Place started to get a decent sized crowd right before the amateur drag show started. It was a great show. I am from Dallas and have to been to the Rose room in s4, these drags were sooo much better! Even funnier after each contestant went the head drags read their asses. Called one fat, told another her hair was bad, etc... Kind of have to know the language to really get it. Any who. Overall, great time! But like I say in all my posts. I am the type of person that can make the best of anything. Don´t go expecting too much from these places and you will be more than happy with what you get. Cover was 3000 colones but included a drink. I am probably going to check this place out again on a busier weekend night.

Went last night for naked night.... Overall, I had a good time but it does not take much for me to really enjoy myself. I arrived about 9pm and it was not popping at all... Every site says the rush is from 2-7 so maybe I missed it.. Who knows, anyways since it was my first time I was taken a back by all the nakedness and luckily Rudi the bar tender was at the front and spoke some english and was super sweet! Drinks were strong as well as I had 2 to loosen up. I played a little here and there and was impressed with how huge this place is! However, the creme of the crop was no where to be found. I settled and had threeway with 2 guys that got the job done. I am more than planning to go back on naked night Wednesday to hopefully see some difference from Friday. It is really what you make of it and while I do not suggest everyone settles do not play and dabble too long.. Guys clear out quick after they cum.

Great Trip to Costa Rica! We will be back!
We used Gecko Trail to help us plan our first trip to Costa Rica. We chose the bi-coastal tour, and added a few extra days in the rain forest and on the beach on the Caribbean side of the country. It was great to spend about 10 days doing and seeing lots, and then hanging out in Puerto Viejo on the beautiful beach. We really enjoyed the bi-coastal tour, as you get a sense of the diversity of the country - the geography, the climate, and the people and architecture. Put simply, we had an amazing trip! Everything - and I mean everything - was perfect! Ernesto and his team pay attention to all the details; you arrive and the program just unfolds. Throughout our 15 days in Costa Rica, everything went off without any problems or issues - it was perfect. The country is beautiful, the people are friendly and warm, and the range of activities you can do is vast. It’s a great holiday. If Costa Rica is on your “bucket list;” make this the year you go, and make sure you book with Gecko. You’ll have a wonderful trip. We will be back for sure!!!

Also try Emilios - a new great very gay friendly choice for a fantastic coffee shop/restaurant, with the best desert menu you may ever enjoy - and the million dollar view of the coast and national park. Located basically across the street from Cafe Milagro on the road to the Playita Beach

This is a very nice addition to the GLBT night scene. Well run and friendly spot. Busiest after 8 or 9 until late night. Mogambo Bar for sunset and then Kharma's after dinner.

HISPALIS IS NOT AS GOOD AS PEOPLE CLAIM
I went there 3 times in mid March. It was not as packed as some people try to make us think, and the average age is more towards 40-45 than early 20's. Besides, the action is only limited to the maze. Good thing that as a foreigner I was approached by a horny young guy and another one more hunky twice out the 3 times I went there. Overall, there not so much gay life in San José. Not a Gay Paradise yet, but still worth it if you are lucky... But if you do not speak Spanish, it might be a big problem...

My partner and I stayed at Makanda in December. Not gay-owned, but certainly gay-friendly. And gorgeous!

Why don't you face the truth...no one was into you!!!
This place is rocking and rolling everyday, all day.....it probably was your FRENCH attitude that killed it for you..LOL!

CRISTOBAL from FRANCE
Where is this action?
I went there twice last week and stayed way after 5.00 pm and if I saw ten men altogether with an average age of 45, that was it. Quite disappointed despite all the hassle to find it. And very, very dirty, to say the least. This place is definitely not for gay people, anyway!

Exotic Costa Rica
Ernesto planned an absolutely fantastic 10 day trip to Costa Rica for me. I stayed in Manuel Antonio, Monteverde and La Fortuna. Each of the accommodations that he selected were just what I was hoping for. The tours that he suggested were excellent and overall, the trip was a DREAM VACATION! I can't wait to go back! Thank you Ernesto

Liquid Lounge is closed
As of Feb 2014 Liquid is closed... there has been no word if another night club will open in the same location so that leaves just two gay venues in Manuel Antonio with Bar Karama and Bar Mogambo

Roberto from San Jose
Hace poco fui a Zona Rosa, confieso que tenia mucha curiosidad, en realidad desde hace mucho tiempo queria saber que es tener un pene en mi boca pero me daba verguenza que me vieran mamar, que mejor que utilizar el glory hold. bueno les dire que llegue cerca de las 7 de la noche, pague rapido y entre, pude observar varios hombres mayores de 40 años, y varia puertas cerradas, pude observar una abierta e ingrese, empece a ver una pelicula de travestis y me excite un poco, busque el agujero en la pared y abri una rustica puerta pequeña que habia en la pared, pude escuchar ruido en el cuarto de la par y decidi desnudarme completamente para sentirme mas a gusto , despues de quitarme todo hasta las medias, me sente en una silla rustica y abri mis piernas de manera que se pudiese ver muy bien mi pene, alguien se asomaba por el agujero en la pared y eso me ponia exitado, de repente vi lo que habia deseado hacer, un grueso pene se asomo por el glory hold, y me dije esta es mi oportunidad asi, que me acerque y empece a tocarlo, despues lo bese y me lo introduje en la boca, me sentia muy bien y seguro el hombre de la par tambien por que se movia metiendo y sacando su pene de mi boca, yo lo saboreaba, disfrutaba el momento, le chupaba la cabeza, era tan rico sentir como palpitaba, mame con mas fuerza, y despues me voltee, no podia dejar de sentir ese pene en mi culo, y le di una verdadera demostracion de baile, apretaba la picha de mi macho fuerte con mis nalgas, mientras enpujaba para atraz para que mi macho sintiera mi culo y su hueco donde podria estar, pero no lo deje que me penetrara, solo le calente la picha y segui mamando, despues le acaricie los huevos y lo masturbe, fue delicioso, fui otra vez y tambien me desnude y me la mamaron en esta ocasion, fue glorioso poder regarme en una boca humeda y deliciosa, el lugar es genial, me gustaria poder mamar hasta que se rieguen en mi boca y despues ser penetrado, claro con seguridad, se los recomiendo, pronto estare nuevamente ahi, talvez los pueda mamar o me mamen, adios....

new bathhouse coming!
I just overheard a conversation of a couple of locals that there is a new bathhouse coming to San Jose. Supposedly run by some locals and Americans and will be the hottest new thing to hit the town. Supposedly it is near all of the nightlclubs downtown. Cannot wait as Hispalis is tired looking.

Abused at liquid manuel antonio
I visit this place with some friends for a special party on the 14/02/2014 and we were told by the guy at the entrance that we had to pay the cover and that there were no drinks included and that there was a show which there was but lasted 10 min, the day after i found a online flyer were it was stated that the cover included a drink so that night we went back and confronted the same guy about it and he said that the offer was just for the first 30 people which is not stated anywhere in their Ad he said it was the way it was and was final at this point we were verbally abused by a girl friend of the same guy at the door calling us names and making racist comments this nearly finish in a full fight if my friends had not intervene, this place is not worth all this trouble is expensive and smells bad is always halt empty and seems like the local friends of the people who works there have the control.
Please do not visit this place is not worth the trouble.
