Going Green at Gay Eco Week in Costa Rica, Nov 2011
Mark your calendars: a first-ever gay Gay Eco-Week is to be held in the gorgeous tropical landscape of Playa Junquillal, Costa Rica next month, November 11-20.
With a strong expat and vacationing LGBT community, this beach town on the northern Pacific coast of the Guanacaste region welcomes with a live-and-let-live ethos. The beaches are stunning and practically deserted. For gays who like a little adventure with their suntans, there are plenty of activities to be done in and around the area including river boat tours, tree top zip lining, caving in Barra Honda National Park, hiking volcanic trails, witnessing sea turtles come ashore to lay eggs, scuba diving, and deep sea fishing.
Scaled back from a week of parties and official events, the inaugural Eco Week now aims to provide an umbrella structure for vacationers to enjoy the natural splendor with fellow L, G, B and Ts. For updated details and lodging options, "like" the Green Party Gay Week Costa Rica on Facebook.
