Main port photo for Puerto Quepos, Costa Rica

Located on Costa Rica's central Pacific coast, Puerto Quepos is a small town that lies in the embrace of a dense tropical rainforest. Named for the fierce Quepoa Indians who once inhabited the region, Puerto Quepos was officially put on the map by famed explorer Juan Ponce de León in 1519, just two years before his death. By the late 19th century, Spanish colonists had established enough banana plantations in the area to support their growing economy.

When you step ashore at Puerto Quepos, you'll be transported to a tropical paradise with an endless array of outdoor adventures lying in wait nearby. Not only does the town provide ample opportunities for sport fishing, but its close proximity to awe-inspiring Manuel Antonio National Park makes it a sought-after destination for travelers around the world. Although it is one of Costa Rica's smallest parks, Manuel Antonio boasts incredible biodiversity. In addition to the breathtaking rainforest, the park features mangrove swamps, pristine beaches and coral reefs, each habitat taking visitors closer to the fascinating native wildlife, from mysterious sloths and squirrel monkeys to sea turtles and colorful toucans.
