Port Quepos (Costa Rica) cruise port

The town is named for the Quepo Indians who inhabited the area in the colonial era. The region sheltered the native Quepoans of the specific region. Led by Juan Vazquez de Coronado, Spanish conquistadores settled Quepos in the mid-16th-century and in 1563 established the settlement (as San Bernardino de Quepo). The native people were subsequently subjugated by the conquistadores. In 1746, the remaining Quepoans were transferred to a reservation that already had another native ethnic group.

The current-day town's economy is tourism-oriented, with many bars and restaurants, as well as vivacious nightlife. Quepos is also the gateway to the Manuel Antonio National Park (1972-established, land area 1983 hectares / 20 km2). Currently, the park service of Costa Rica imposes limits on the number of park's visitors (600 per day) and the nature park is closed on Mondays. Recreational/sport fishing is also popular among foreign tourists.
