Welcome to Quepos

With a prime position on Costa Rica’s Pacific coast, Quepos doubles as a gateway to Manuel Antonio National Park. Visitors come to this small but perfectly formed park to explore its rain forests, lounge on its white-sand beaches, and discover wildlife—from toucans and sloths to squirrel monkeys—on naturalist-led walks. Afterwards, there are more things to do in Quepos proper: pristine coastline attracts sun-seekers and sport-fishers; whale watching season kicks off from midsummer; and the town comes to life every February, when the Festival del Mar (Sea Festival) brings in crowds and entertainment.

All about Quepos

When to visit

The winter dry season is also the high season in Quepos, with the most popular times to visit from December through April. Quepos’ Festival del Mar happens in February and is also a particularly popular time to visit. Prices are lower in the wet season from May to November, and there are other reasons to visit then, too: namely, the migrating humpback whales, which can be spotted offshore from May through November.

Getting around

Quepos itself is quite walkable and is served by local taxis. There is also a small bus terminal in the center of town, with frequent services that connect Quepos to Manuel Antonio National Park and the capital of San Jose and its airport. There are also services to nearby towns including Jaco, Puntarenas, and Uvita. However, if you plan to do a lot of exploring of the region, a rental car offers the greatest flexibility.

Traveler tips

Quepos is most famous for being the gateway to Manuel Antonio National Park—renowned for its beach and rainforest settings and its wealth of wildlife. But the town is also a top-notch sport-fishing destination, with schools of sailfish, roosterfish, snappers, and marlin found offshore. Book a half- or full-day private fishing charter for the best access. A number of fishing tournaments are also held here each year.
