What’s Shaking @ Marina Pez Vela – November 2021

What's Shaking headerNever before has an upcoming “high” season been awaited with as much anticipation, joy, and celebration as what we and the world are now experiencing. November is always a time of renovation and energy here in Quepos/ Manuel Antonio as we move into the end of our rainy season and begin to plan for the coming holidays and peak tourism season. With the major advances and leadership in helping to insure vaccinations and health protocols, November will also be an important back-to-business month for so many in our community, and the family at Marina Pez Vela would like to take a moment to thank everyone in our community whose resiliency has helped to allow this area to be one of the touristic areas with the fastest recoveries anywhere in the world.

November is an action-packed month here at the marina and brings us back to fishing tournaments, some new additions to the plaza, and one of our favorite celebrations!


November 13th is the now famous Dorado Derby one-day fishing tournament. Last year, due to some logistics issues caused by some incredible rains, we had to break the tournament into two weekends as some anglers couldn’t get safely to Quepos and the result was so much fun that we decided to replicate the two-weekend option again in 2021! November 20th will be the Dorado Derby Dos. The rules, format, FUN is the same so pick one of these two weekends, get a team together or reach out to the Marina Pez Vela Guest Center to get hooked up with some other anglers. The Dorado bite has been epic and these one-day tournaments are a great opportunity for anglers at all levels to have fun, get an action-packed experience, share with friends, colleagues, family, and celebrate the coming season.

AUDIO MASTERS opens at Marina Pez Vela

We are extremely proud and happy to announce the opening of the Audio Masters store at Marina Pez Vela. This dynamic and beautiful new store is going to be a GAME CHANGER for so many of our community! Audio Masters is a tech solutions company which sells and installs home and professional security systems, audio systems, cell and computer parts, chargers, adapters, is an authorized MAC distributor and service center, and also offers some direct Amazon services. The days of “pleading” for a loaned charger for whatever version of MacBook, laptop, cell phone, are over as we have this great new additional. With the holidays coming up, make sure you drop by to check out this new beautiful and necessary addition to the plaza and our community!


Just as we await the high season with a renewed sense of gratitude and perspective, this year’s Thanksgiving holiday, which every year is more and more widely celebrated even here in Costa Rica, is going to be special. Covid has given us all perspective, and the family here at MPV will be giving THANKS this year to our amazing team of employees, our local community, and nation as a whole for coming together during this past year. All of the restaurants here will be open and ready to welcome you, your guests, friends and families to join us and to give thanks for our collective blessings.
