Quepos/Manuel Antonio

Down the Costanera (coastal highway), 12 miles from Parrita is the port town of Quepos and connected geographically to it is Manuel Antonio and it’s famous national park.

Quepos, like Parrita has similar shops and services, except Quepos is more tourist-oriented as is Manuel Antonio. It is an easy and quick trip from Tesoro to visit the area.

Quepos is also home to one of the largest private sportfishing fleets in Costa Rica and is in the process of building a new, ultra-modern international marina.

Right next to Quepos is Manuel Antonio – home to some of the highest priced real estate in Costa Rica. Manuel Antonio is also home to one of the most beautiful and most visited national parks in Costa Rican national park system. Here the rain forest runs to the beach and is home to a wide assortment of interesting animals, lizards and insects as well as plant life.
