    I enjoyed our stay in Quepos. It is a quaint little fishing town on the Pacific cost of Costa Rica. The weather is hot, the place is safe, and the locals are friendly. What more can you ask for? It is a great place to stay when exploring Manuel Antonio National Park and the amazing beaches around the area. It is not a big, happenin’ large city; it has more of a sleepy village feel. Very relaxing and fun place to visit.

    This was my favorite spot in all of Costa Rica! Quepos is a quaint town with shops, restaurants, and tiny art galleries. It is located near Manuel Antonio Beach, where I imagine Peter Pan and his lost boys dropping anchor. It has everything from fine dining and shopping to nature hikes and lazy days at the beach. Be careful walking up the hill from the beach after dark...the jungle surges with animal sounds ;)

    Quepos is NOT a tourist destination, the beach south from it is -Manual Antonio, etc. Quepos is a quaint if run down small central American port town. I liked it there. people very friendly and helpful. facilities and services are reliable and cheap and there are non-tourist places to eat and live without breaking the bank.

    Basically the road ends here. Take it past Jaco (which apparently is overrun with drugs and prostitutes) and you have the amazing little town of Quepos. It's near San Antonio National park - we saw more animals in this park than we did staying 3 days in the rainforest. Multiple beautiful beaches. I want to go back!

    First to Review

    Quepos is centrally located on the Pacific Coast of Costa Rica, 160 km from San Jose in Puntarenas province. Known as one of the best places in the world for big game sportfishing. With an interesting atmosphere that is all its own, the best time to visit Quepos is between January and April, when the weather is dry. Though peak fishing season lasts from December to August, March and April can get pretty hot, while September brings a lot of rain. This town is also important as it is the closest to the world famous Manuel Antonio National Park that is 7 km south of here. Besides tourists coming here, Quepos is also frequented by many international leading scientists and naturalists, who come here to study this region’s fantastic variety of flora and fauna.

Description

Quepos drapes itself across a tropical inlet surrounded by primary rainforest. The village center is a delightful six-block square of restaurants, bars, hotels, bakeries, art galleries and gift shops, all fronted by the main beach and sportfishing fleet. Quepos is growing quickly yet maintains many of its sleepy and humble beginnings.
