About Quepos

Quepos may just be the biggest town you see on a cruise along Costa Rica's Pacific coast, and it's the perfect jumping-off point for all sorts of land and sea activities. The area's past is tied to the former United Fruit Company and the production and export of bananas; the favorite plant is now the palm, for the production of palm oil. But tourism reigns supreme, due to Quepos' proximity to the Manuel Antonio National Park, as well as beaches, mangroves, rainforest and the sea.

There's truly something for everyone in Quepos. Nature lovers can explore the park, cameras ready to capture monkeys, sloths and other exotic wildlife, or take a boat ride through the mangroves. Adventure travelers can zip through the jungle on a canopy tour, while fishing enthusiasts can head to sea in search of marlin and sailfish. Foodies can quest for high-end coffee to take home or choose among the numerous restaurants lining the hill between Quepos and Manuel Antonio. Sun lovers have their choice of beaches and water sports.

The town of Quepos isn't the most attractive, but its downtown is tiny and easy to get around. (The streets don't really have names, so we've given directions by landmarks here.) You'll find restaurants catering to tourists, taxis, a bus station and a "supermarket" (more like a corner store), so don't be afraid to go it alone.
