Savour every second of downtime on this active escape. 

If you’re biodiversity-curious, our all-gay eco-adventure through the land of Pura Vida is a great place to get busy. Our tour kicks off in Costa Rica’s capital, San José. We swerve into the sultry rainforest and then land in style at one of the country’s most famous beaches. Read on for a sneak peek of where you’ll rest your weary head after every day’s adventures – and don’t forget your swimsuit.

Gran Hotel Costa Rica Curio Collection, San José

A stunning situation that’s not just for slumber

This charming 1930’s building, a historical-architectural monument of Costa Rica, features contemporary urban interiors. Not only does the property feature beautiful interior design, but it’s also perfectly located on the Avenida Central pedestrian boulevard, steps from the National Theatre, Gold Museum as well as many cafés and shops. Amenities include a fitness center and piano bar.

Arenal Springs Resort, Arenal

Al fresco showers await!

At this tropical spa retreat in the foothills of Arenal Volcano, your private cabana is a true escape. We love the showers that bring the outdoors in, and so will you after getting sweaty. For an array of appetites, dining includes Italian and sushi restaurants. And to wind down, there are natural hot springs, an outdoor pool with a swim-up bar, and an open-air spa with a hot tub, massage, and body treatments.

The public spaces of Arenal Springs Resort charm night or day.

Bagaces, Rio Perdido

Make yourself at home in a riverside bungalow

This 600-acre private reserve centres around its namesake – Rio Perdido – a thermal river heated by Miravalles Volcano. You’ll even be able to bathe in several natural pools. With a choice of temperatures, one will be just right for you. The hotel also offers massage and spa services – like their signature mud body paint made with mineral-rich soil from the river.

Best of all, you’ll stay in one of 30 spacious forest bungalows that connect directly to hiking trails and make this stay extra special. The interiors are warm but understated. Think wood accents, stainless steel fixtures, and polished concrete floors. Step outside, and you can even snooze in the hammock on your private terrace. This is the pinnacle of ‘Pura Vida.

The hammocks are a lovely place to commune with nature.
The resort makes an architectural statement in its verdant surroundings.

Tamarindo Diria, Tamarindo

Thatched to the nines.

Surrounded by mature palm trees, this hotel offers direct access to the white sands of Tamarindo, one of Costa Rica’s most famous beaches. The room ambience is warm, and there are many places to grab a bite or sip on cocktails, including a swim-up bar.

The Tamarindo Diria offers one of the most lavish pools you’ll encounter with Out Adventures. Full stop.
These views. There are no words.
