Quepos and Manuel Antonio is a great spot to visit and is best enjoyed over several days.  There are a lot of things to do either here or very nearby.  We enjoy some of the best sport fishing in the Pacific.  The beaches are beautiful and go from sandy picturesque palm tree lined to rocky volcanic  coves.  So much to do and only 24 hours in a day.  Speaking of that, because we are so close to the equator the sun rises and sets probably earlier than you are used to.  Sunrise is around 4:50 a.m. to 5:15 a.m. and sets around 5:15 p.m. to 5:45 p.m.  So, it does pay to get up earlier here to make the most of your days.
