Welcome to Quepos
As a tropical inlet backed by rainforest, Quepos is a small booming harbour town on the pacific coast, famous for being one of the best places in the world for big-game sport fishing as well as the gateway to the Manuel Antonio National Park, which is only 7 kilometer south.
The park’s mangroves, lagoons and beach-lined rainforests shelter howler, white-faced and squirrel monkeys – so get your binos at the ready.
Nearby you’ve also got sandy stretches of Playa Espadilla and Playa Biesans, before heading Northwest to visit the Damas Island mangrove estuary which is home to caimans, snakes and iguanas – so plenty to see and do at the weekends.
Local homestays .Each family can accommodate about average 4-6 students and are approximately a 5-minute walk from the dive centre.
All the homestays have been personally chosen by Geo and Kat and provide a cosy homely vibe and have been looking after their volunteers for several years now.
Breakfast and supper in the homestay.
Lunch is not included. Most volunteers either eat in one of the local cafes near the dive centre.
