Quepos - Information

Puerto Quepos lies across a tropical inlet with the backdrop of the Pacific on one side and primary forest on the other.  The village center is marked by six square blocks of a variety of restaurants, art galleries, bars, fruit and vegetable markets, public transportation center, gift shops and small storefront businesses. The Pacific facing side of the city is fronted by a main road leading to the sport fishing fleet in the marina, which stays busy with fishing charters and aqua tours.

Quepos is filled with festival spirit each February as they host the Festival del Mar, a month long party  featuring concerts, parades, street carnivals and sport fishing events. The sport fishing crowd comes into the city during this celebration, filling the many hotels in and around the city.
