What’s Shaking at Marina Pez Vela? – December 2017

The cooling rains subside, the warm breezes and magical sunsets of the Costa Rica summer season begin lightingup the evening skies, we get ready for what is likely to be a record setting season here in Costa Rica and especially at Marina Pez Vela! We are incredibly excited to share some of the events we have planned for the coming months, many of which are community celebrations which have become part of our culture here at Marina Pez Vela. Given some of the obstacles and heart-warming manner in which our families and community responded during this past rainy season, we hope that Marina Pez Vela can continue to support this wonderful area and to create public spaces where we can all share and celebrate the beauty of this region, the spectacular ocean which embraces the project and the families who make this area so special.

Friday Night Outdoor Movie Nights are back!

Out with the rain, IN WITH FRIDAY NIGHT FREE MOVIES UNDER THE STARS AT MPV. This has become one of our favorite dry season traditions. Families, tourists, anglers all relaxing under the stars, enjoying all the restaurants, shops and services here at the project and free outdoor movies on the GIANT inflatable screen, every Friday at 7 pm.

Nightly rock bands, dock socials, and prizes for all kinds of different species. Contact the team at iFish Quepos for information on charters or how you can get your team inscribed.
