We have never seen any lesbians. Careful however as they have the highest aides rate per capita world wide. Young children ( male as well as female) will offer their sexual services.  You might not pick up on this at first in particular if you are a 65 year old female and it is a 12 year old boy. Contamana is relatively safe, no pick pockets, no gringo prices.
