Bienvenidos… Welcome to the rain forest, green season has arrived. So enjoy the peace of it and the lushness it provides. Our mornings are normally beautiful and the rain comes later in the day so get moving early and maybe have an afternoon nap ( guilt free in the rain). Our restaurants and tour companies are in full swing to make your stay here unforgettable and, without the crowds, much more enjoyable. Marina Pez Vela offers outstanding restaurants and tours, great shopping, and most important this time of year—underground parking and shuttle service. We recommend calling ahead to our fine restaurants beforehand because some will be closing briefly for a quick holiday for themselves and their staff. Being from the US I always enjoy this time of year. I look forward to the start of the NFL season. Even more so this year…being from Philly. Catch all the games at Sancho’s or Jolly Roger on the Hill or Double Hook at the marina.
Costa Rica celebrates their 196th year of Independence on September 15th. Quepos will be having its annual parade with children in traditional dress, floats, and festive marching bands. So if you are in the area come celebrate with a country that truly appreciates their Independence…. Viva Costa Rica!!!
October 31 is Halloween so start thinking of a costume and get ready for fright night in the jungle. Marina Pez Vela will be having their Halloween Bash complete with trick or treating for the kids and haunted house, as well as many bars and restaurants in the area. Always a great time.
