In a nutshell: Originally a sleepy fishing village and commercial port located in the mid Pacific area, Quepos is today a charming tourist town sought out by both honeymooners and nature lovers. The charming town sits very close to one of Costa Rica’s most beautiful national parks: Manuel Antonio. The park, a thick tropical jungle teeming with monkeys, sloth, iguanas and several bird species, runs along spectacular white-sand beaches, ranked among the best in the country, with large stony islands offshore serving as sanctuaries to several species of marine birds. Quepos is the ultimate vacation spot offering a wide array of eco activities both inland and off shore, and exquisite, secluded hotels ideal for honeymoons and travelers looking for a relaxing vacation
