LGBT rights: Lesbians face jail time in Costa Rica for getting married

Thinking of vacationing in Costa Rica?

Think again.

Same-sex marriage is not legal in that country, and a lesbian couple who managed to get married there are now facing possible prosecution and jail time.

There is an AFP article on the Yahoo News site you can read for more information.

Meanwhile, Costa Rica won’t be a potential vacation destination for me as long as it treats LGBT people with such contempt.
