Often overlooked by travelers, guests who plan a visit to Guapiles on their Costa Rica tours will have the town's wealth of fresh produce and boutique-style shops to themselves.
Located in Costa Rica's banana-growing region, the city's agricultural roots come alive at Guapiles' Saturday market. With fresh bananas always for sale, the market provides a chance for visitors to sample a range of other succulent native fruits and vegetables, giving everyone a literal taste of the Costa Rican tropics.
Guapiles' number of boutique shops provide the perfect opportunity for guests to find a unique souvenir or great new accessory. Businesses here sell everything from furniture to umbrellas, and so accommodate a range of shopping tastes. The town is also known for its number of vintage clothing stores, which provide a great trip down memory lane and affordable prices that are simply too good to pass up.
After a day of shopping, a perfect end to any Guapiles trip is a stop at one of the village sodas, or bars. Serving up both Costa Rican favorites like casados plates and gallo pinto, many eateries also feature American fast food-type meals like classic hamburgers.

Fact: Monkeying around can bring families closer together.
There is no better way to get away than to immerse yourself in a private villa getaway. A tropical villa with a pool and all the privacy you could want. Great for couples, small groups and of course family! Beaches, volcanoes, top restaurants and all the water sports you can imagine as well as much more. How can you say no to that?
