Central America Travel News

Laid-back atmosphere of Quepos stands out during Costa Rica tours

Whether you go on vacation to relax, for adventure or anything in between, a tour of Costa Rica provides you with the opportunity to enjoy yourself. The Central American hotspot has something for everyone, no matter of how you'd prefer to spend your time there. While you're sure to have a fulfilling experience regardless of what you choose to do, stopping by the town of Quepos will certainly stand out as a highlight. 

Quepos is the perfect destination if you're looking to unwind during your tour of Costa Rica. The town's streets are permeated by a laid-back feeling that will quickly have you forgetting about all the stress you may have left behind, and with its impressive dining and nightlife scene, there is plenty of opportunity to experience the local culture. Watching the sun set over the Pacific Ocean as you sip a drink certainly will be a memory you won't soon forget.

While the relaxing vibe Quepos offers is part of its draw, the town is also an ideal destination if you're interested in experiencing the beautiful, natural landscape of Costa Rica. Specifically, it offers easy access to the famous Manuel Antonio National Park. The smallest of the natural reserves in Costa Rica, what Manuel Antonio lacks in size it makes up for in stunning views.

Many travelers consider it to be one of the world's most beautiful national parks and it's easy to see why. For starters, it is located on Costa Rica's pristine coastline, and its unspoiled beaches - combined with the rocky landscape - help create a unique contrast. Once you move away from the water, the view is no less impressive as you can make your way through one of the country's trademark rainforests.
