Quepos, Costa Rica, (and its sister city Manuel Antonio) are highly popular tourist destinations as they serve as the entry point to Manuel Antonio National Park. While Manuel Antonio exudes a touristy vibe, Quepos (which is named after the indigenous Quepo Indians) offers a more rustic and nostalgic experience.
Though the food and bar scene cater to tourists, the services in Quepos are geared more towards the local, working-class community. However, modern shopping options are now available, and Marina Pez Vela, one of the most significant marinas in the country, is also located in Quepos.
This area is renowned for deep-sea fishing, with several championships held throughout the year. Not only do anglers enjoy this community, but seafood lovers also relish the diverse selection of fresh seafood brought into port daily. Humpback whale migration and sea turtle nesting are also popular attractions that are appreciated by both tourists and locals alike.
Quepos is an ideal family-friendly community, with high humidity and warm temperatures throughout the year.
