Calle 19, San Jose, Costa Rica
Club Hispalis is a male-only sauna and fitness centre close to the gay centre of San Jose.
The sauna offers lockers, a jacuzzi, heated pool and darkrooms downstairs.
Men here are often willing to play, but maybe brush up on your Spanish as some tourists have had difficulty with the entrance attendants.
Reviewers mention the wide range of hot guys, a good mix of ages and types. Make sure to go in the early evenings, not late at night like most saunas.

“nice facility, but poor directions if walking. Walk all the way down the pedestrian Central Avenida to Calle 19, go short distance and cross the railroad tracks. Take a right between the bldgs and entrance is to your left. This info should increase the no. of tourists seeking the club while on holiday.“

The only gay sauna
“A few blocks away from the museum. If you are foreigner is best if you take UBER. Busy days Wednesday, Friday, (naked days) Saturday’s and Sunday’s busy, too. It gets good between 3pm and 8 pm. The music is not very good. There is a bar, beers , hard liquor etc. Last time that I went 5500 colones $9 as the colon is plunging.
Once you pay the entrance they let you in and they give you a blue cloth and sandals. Ask for a towel instead. It is a huge place with swimming pool, jacuzzi, labyrinth ( small) but basically, that’s where you hook up and at the glory hole section; bring your own lube and condoms. Ticos in that place tend to stick together but foreigners are very well welcome. The customers are from all ages from twinks to 80 years old. Some are very handsome some not so much a lot of paunchy guys. There is a small room diagonal to the bar where you can smoke. There is a lot of bareback and also guys who have just have fun with condoms, more than likely you'll get what you want.“
