¿Qué Pasa en Quepos? – November 2023

Bienvenidos… Welcome to the Rainforest. It will probably live up to its name a little in November while you are here but don’t let it slow you down there is lots to do. Thanks to the rain Manuel Antonio National Park is in full bloom attracting frogs, hummingbirds, and butterflies of every color. The rains are also providing great rafting on our nearby rivers, and Nauyaca Waterfalls is always amazing. It is also baby season here in the jungle, so look closely as a lot of the mommy monkeys and sloths are carrying their young on their backs. Whale season has been fantastic this year so get to Marina Pez Vela and book your whale watching tour. Brisa Elegante and Sunset Sails  can get you out to enjoy our beautiful coastline and experience these magnificent animals up close.

Marina Pez Vela will be hosting its 6th year of one of the most anticipated sportfishing events The Dorado Derby. This two day event Nov 11th and 18th Is a fun filled event for all ages and skill levels so register your team through marinapezvela.com and get out there and enjoy the Derby. The Quepos Triathlon is back November 26th where the country’s top competitors will be swimming, cycling, and running in Quepos so get up early and come to MPV for all the action.

Thanksgiving is November 23rd and we all have something to be thankful for moving into this new year. Colina’s will be serving their famous traditional Thanksgiving Dinner with all the fixings, so make your reservations and reserve your drumstick.

We at Quepolandia are very thankful for all the support from our advertisers, writers, staff and readers over the last 25 years. We wish you a very HAPPY THANKSGIVING. We could not do this magazine with out you.

Toys for Tots will have their collection boxes around the area, so let’s “Be Nice” and help the children and their families have a wonderful Christmas by dropping an unwrapped gift to brighten someone’s holiday. Santa can always use the help.

We want to thank Claire Thomas for this month’s amazing cover shot. We also want to welcome our new advertisers: Bakterien, Five Maes,  and Mangata.
