Located 5 meters above sea level, 167 km from San José, 70 km from Jaco and 7 km from the Manuel Antonio National Park. It was an important port for banana exportation separated by just 7 kilometers from the famous Manuel Antonio National Park. There is a regular bus service that travels between these two places and the city has an acceptable offer of hotels, restaurants, shops, bars and discos. Quepos has preserved some of the air of a fishing and banana city from the old Costa Rica. It is said that the first mission in Costa Rica settled here in 1570. It was abandoned by the last inhabitants in 1751, today you can still visit the ruins, located up river from Río Naranjo. Its name is taken from the tribe of Quepoa Indians, a subgroup of Borucas that inhabited the area during the times of the conquest. The number of people from Quepos decreased because of the illnesses that came from Europe, from the soldiers and other groups of indigenous people, and also because they were sold as slaves. At the end of the XIX century there were no longer any original people from Quepos “puro”, and the area began to be occupied by farmers.
