Quepos to Uvita/Costa Rica

Introducing Quepos to Uvita

South of Quepos, the well-trodden central Pacific tourist trail begins to taper off, evoking the feel of the Costa Rica of yesteryear – surf shacks and empty beaches, roadside ceviche vendors and a little more space. Intrepid travelers can have their pick of any number of deserted beaches and great surf spots. The region is also home to the great bulk of Costa Rica’s African palm–oil industry, which should be immediately obvious after the few dozen kilometers of endless plantations lining the sides of the Costanera.
