¿Qué Pasa en Quepos? – July 2014

July 2014 CoverBienvenidos/Welcome to our beautiful slice of Paradise… we know you are going to have a great time! Quepos/Manuel Antonio may be a small area but we have everything Costa Rica has to offer in tours – except no volcano right here- zip line to your heart’s content, white water raft , horseback ride, waterfall tours, ATV’s –you won’t get bored – and we have beautiful beaches for sun tanning, surfing and just plain people watching… Speaking of the beach, we would like to thank Mark Thompson of Hamilton, Ontario for our great cover shot of the crashing surf. Mark and his family enjoyed 6 wks in the Quepos area in Dec/Jan—lucky them! Now…..did I mention all the great food- Italian, Asian, Mexican, Typical Costa Rican, Continental and everything in between available plus ice cold drinks! We hope you will spend a little time visiting with our advertisers and please tell them you found them in Quepolandia. Happy 4th of July to our USA folks and a Happy Guanacaste Day on the 25th to Costa Rica! Oops and Canada Day on the 1st. You may have noticed how green it is around here – Just Add Water –as in rain and wow we are GREEN again after a very dry, dry season. I for one am happy to have the lush green back in our rainforest – so enjoy the rain – it’s all part of the experience but be careful driving if it should come pouring down. During our May/June break I got to take a little time to enjoy a week of offshore fishing – we caught 28 blue marlin in 3 days!(1 was mine) and our That’s Fishin’ article this month tells you the thrill of catching a Blue Marlin – all catch and release plus we tagged each marlin and sailfish to see where they might be caught next—what an awesome adventure – you can see a few of my photos in the article on page 32 with Daniel’s fun story….You just might want to book the fishing trip you have always dreamed of!….guess that’s about it for this month. Enjoy your stay and follow us on  and check us out here online when you get back home… travel safe to your next destination and come back soon…… ciao………..P
