Detours Gay Adventure Travel: Leave your stress at home, because it’s not welcome here!  Costa Rica is where the word paradise was meant for. Our 12-day trip has been designed to maximize your experience here and have you begging to stay forever!  Instead of rushing around in a panic trying to visit as many places as possible, we’ve specially chosen three locations, plus San Jose that we know you’ll fall in love with. How are we so sure? Well, we’ve tirelessly tested out beaches, bars, bungalows and bit of booze just to make sure we can bring you the cream of the crop.  We genuinely love Costa Rica and can’t wait to share this paradise with you!

Highlights:

  • Most travelers will arrive in San Jose on day one and head to our meeting spot for our 4pm meeting and start of our adventure together.
  • We travel north of San Jose to the area of Arenal, famous for its very active volcano, gorgeous scenery, and lots of opportunities to keep active with zip lines, hiking, canopy adventures, and more.
  • Both of our private luxury villas are nestled in the Costa Rican jungle offering our groups incredible opportunities for exploring hidden waterfalls or beaches, as well as lots of activities to choose from!
  • Manuel Antonio is known as one of the most diverse areas for flora and fauna with all kinds of monkeys, reptiles, birds, sloths, and plant life of course.
  • We travel back into San Jose for one more dinner together and poolside drinks at our hotel pool before saying our adios for now’s!

ITINERARY
Day 1 – San Jose
Most travelers will arrive in San Jose on day one and head to our meeting spot for our 4pm meeting and start of our adventure together. This time in the capital city of San Jose is a great introduction to the incredible country of Costa Rica as well as our first chance to get to know our fellow travelers.  In the evening we’ll have an authentic Costa Rican buffet dinner which will allow everyone to find which foods are their favorite right at the start!  At night you’ll have the opportunity to immerse yourself into some authentic Latin nightlife, so brush up on your Salsa dancing skills!

Days 2, 3 & 4 – Arenal Lake and Volcano
On day 2 we travel north of San Jose to the area of Arenal, famous for its very active volcano, gorgeous scenery, and lots of opportunities to keep active with zip lines, hiking, canopy adventures, and more.  Along the way we’ll head up to the crater’s edge of the very active Poas Volcano.  In the evening we’ll even take you off the beaten path, away from the crowds, to a hot springs waterfall oasis hidden in the jungle… as long as you promise not to share the location with the world!  Your three nights here are your opportunity to be as adventurous as you’d like, this area definitely won’t limit you!

Days 5, 6 & 7- Private Villa (Guanacaste or Las Aguas)
On day 5 we continue down the road to our own private villa for the next three nights!  Both of our private luxury villas are nestled in the Costa Rican jungle offering our groups incredible opportunities for exploring hidden waterfalls or beaches, as well as lots of activities to choose from!  Relaxing in the outdoor jacuzzi at the end of the day, under the stars, listening to the sounds of the jungle is a moment you’ll want to hang on to forever.

Days 8, 9, & 10 – Manuel Antonio
Manuel Antonio is known as one of the most diverse areas for flora and fauna with all kinds of monkeys, reptiles, birds, sloths, and plant life of course.  It’s also known as the gay beach area of Costa Rica with a lively community of gay guys from all over the world!  Spend your day at the beautiful white-sand beach, or checking out the incredibly abundant life in Manuel Antonio National Park, then spend the evening experiencing Manuel Antonio’s social life.  Included in the trip is a guided walk through Manuel Antonio National Park with Gama, a local wildlife expert who is an incredibly talented and knowledgeable wildlife spotter.

Days 11 & 12 – San Jose
We travel back into San Jose for one more dinner together and poolside drinks at our hotel pool before saying our adios for now’s!  If your flight time permits, maybe take a quick trip out to one of the volcanoes in the city!  And if you’ve got an extra few days we’ll set you on the right path to continue experiencing this Costa Rican paradise.  All travelers are welcome to book their flights departing from Costa Rica at any time on the 12th day.
