Quepos is a small, booming harbour town famous for being one of the best places for sport fishing as well as the gateway to the well-known national park Manuel Antonio.

After the fall of the banana plantation that laid the foundations for the port, Quepos replaced its former industry with ecotourism – meaning that there are many other draws, including kayaking and canopy tours. Quepos is also frequented by many scientists and naturalists, who come to study this region’s fantastic biodiversity.
