12 Quepos Cruise Reviews

Manuel Antonio National Park Nature Walk – this is a quick bus ride from the pier. There weren’t as many varieties of wildlife as we might have expected, but we probably saw 8 to 10 sloths! Several were moving, and the guides have little scopes so you can look through a telephoto lens and see them up close; otherwise they are quite high in the trees and hard to see, much less get a good photo. The guides are also good at spotting other rodents, lizards and crabs. We finally saw a group of capuchin monkeys as we were about to leave the park – and we felt like it’d been a pretty good trip. There’s a break for a beach/swim spot, but it’s a pain to carry your stuff around on the walk, so that was a bit of a waste of time. We left and walked on our own for that 30 minutes until we met back up with the guide again. It’s important this tour is early morning, as only a certain number of visitors are allowed daily and once they reach their limit, they close, only re-opening later once a certain number have left. It’s also nice to walk through when it’s a bit less crowded. The marina where you tender to is a nice little place with a variety of restaurants and bars and a few cute boutiques. We had sushi at the restaurant Sunrice, with fresh tuna from the local fishermen – a much appreciated change of pace from the cruise meals. Town is only a few blocks from the marina, also walkable, for your standard tourist shopping. Read Less

We did Odyssey tours to Manuel Antonio park - our guides were excellent pointing out two and three toed sloths, monkeys, different kinds of lizards, frogs, birds, plants etc. Without a guide i would not have been able to discern anything.

We took the Manuel Antonia National Park Nature Walk. The tour left very early at 7 AM to avoid the crowds. It was a 20 minute bus ride and there were crowds and lots of tours. There is one main path to walk through the park to the beach area. The tour guide brought scopes to make it easier to see the animals in the trees. We saw capuchin and howler monkies, sloths and various birds. The tour guide provided a narrative of the habitat and the animals. There were just so many people that were trying to see the same animals, a bit crazy. The beach is nice but since it is a nature park they do not clean the natural debris from the beach and it is not as pristine as some pictures may show. Water was warm and clear. On the way back, they provided snacks, fresh fruit and drinks. It was very humid so we were glad we went early and were back at the ship before noon. The marina at Quepos is new and has free WiFi and various seating areas with restaurants and shops. Read Less

Had booked to go to the beach ($ 129.00/p.p.). We tendered in and went into town first (nice town by the way). Going back to the pier, there were no towels and we were told that we also had to rent beach chair! We passed on got our money back. Speaking to others who went, they confirmed the beach chair rental (which was not mentioned) and that the beach was only a short taxi ride away. Read Less

We did not tour Quepos. We took the tour of Manuel Antonio National Park. The guides were great. The park was a little crowded, but manageable.
