With Pride season just around the corner, we review some of the more LGBTQ-friendly hotels and destinations.
Located along the cloud forest mountain ranges of Costa Rica, Hotel Belmar is an award winning, upscale, planet positive hotel that is globally recognized as a leader in responsible tourism who celebrates diversity year-round.
Committed to creating opportunities that allow guests to connect with nature, the hotel also offers a gastronomy program including farm-to-table experiences at their onsite organic garden, a garden-to-glass cocktail making class, tours of their farm Finca Madre Tierra (the first carbon-neutral farm in the country) offering a real Costa Rican farm experience for guests while learning about sustainable agriculture, and thrilling eco-adventures with a purpose at SAVIA, their private reserve where guests can hike, zip-line, walk on suspension bridges, climb a hollow Ficus tree, meditate in sensorial gardens and curiosity pods, bird watch or enjoy a picnic above the forest canopy.
The hotel supports the LGBTIQ+ community with monthly Live & Proud events that are safe gatherings of hearts and minds, and which feature LGBTIQ+ musicians and guest speakers in partnership with Casa Rara, a non-profit network that supports and aids Costa Rica’s disenfranchised LGBTIQ+ populations.
