A few images of downtown Quepos, Costa Rica, located on Pacific Ocean coast in the middle of the country. Quepos is 10km from Manuel Antonio. Along the highway between the two towns are myraid, hotels, resorts and restaurants so popular with tourists. Quepos is widely known as a sport-fishing town with a large fleet of charter boats ported here.
The town is actually a few feet below sea level located behind a large berm on which a railroad once operated during the era of banana plantations. Disease killed the banana industry years ago which was replaced by palm oil production. The town mostly depends upon the health of the tourism industry, and palm oil production (in part) to keep itself thriving. November 11, 2009. Canon SD850-IS
