Quepos is curiously gay friendly. There is a "spot in the road" between Quepos and Manuel Antonio National Park that has several restaurants, hotels, shops, and even a gay bar. While visitors to this paradise include all kinds of folks, this community has made a point to make the gay/lesbian travelor welcome also. The susnset cruise has a gay only night and many of the business are gay owned or gay friendly. This is unusual in my experience of Central America and was so very nice.
There are several Americans and Canadians that have settled there because it is so beautiful and very inexpensive to live there. It is a very progressive community and the gay/lesbian tourist is welcomed by the locals as well as the people that have relocated there.
