Costa Rica is known for its adult entertainment with its Massage Parlors, pick up bars, strip and adult entertainment clubs, and "guests pay extra" hotels. Below is a map of some of the well-known establishments such as Del Rey, Monaco, Tangas, Cha Cha Cha, New Fantasy, VIPs Lipsticks and Bar Dorado.
All these places are in what is known as "Red Zone" or "Zona Roja" of San Jose, which begins one block north of the Mercado Central and in the area of "Gringo Glutch," which centers around the Hotel Del Rey.
These areas at times (especially on the weekends) get congested with vehicles and pedestrian traffic and are strongly patrolled by police.
