Flying into Quepos.

Yesterday, we decided to visit Quepos, a small town about a 30 minute drive away.  We hadn’t visited Quepos in a couple of years and thought it would be fun to go there.  Now that they have a new port, many cruise ships stop there.  We didn’t see any cruise ships, but had a nice time visiting the shops and having an ice cream.

On our way into Quepos, we passed by the little airport and the small hospital.  The airport was quiet and the hospital was very busy!  On our way out of town, the hospital was still busy; all the parking spaces were full.  The airport didn’t look busy at all , but an airplane was approaching.  So, we decided to pull over to watch it come in for landing.  We weren’t the only ones to stop…there were several locals, too. (It’s a big deal to watch the airplanes land.)

Costa Rica has two regional airlines, Sansa and Nature Air, and they both fly into Quespos on a regular schedule several times a day.  It’s only a 30 minute flight from San Jose to Quepos.  Driving time is about 3 hours.  If you decide to fly from San Jose to Quepos to see us, this is the type of plane you will flying on.  It’s a 12 passenger plane and not as scary as it looks!

  1. Hi Eddie and Ellen. We finally got around to checking out your blog and it looks like you are enjoying beach life! Nice truck. I don’t recognize that Toyota model. Is it more like a Tacoma or a Tundra? Let us know when you need a snow fix!

    • Hi Jack- Yes, we are having a good time. I’m not sure what the Hilux is like more, but it is slightly smaller than say a Ford F-150. Not sure we will be looking to play in the snow anytime soon, but you never know…
