Tours and shuttles, many of which come out of Quepos will often pick you up at the house.
Many of the best restaurants are on the Manuel Antonio Road which is 400 meters from Casa Moreno.
The best beaches are in or before Manuel Antonio Park which is three miles from the house. You can hire a tour guide for a reasonable fee to take you thru the park. You will see many species of Monkeys, Sloths, and Iguanas as well as unusual and unique plants and trees. A mile or so inside the park there are secluded beaches. The beach just outside the park has parasailing, jet skis and umbrellas and tables for rent. It is our favorite beach.
Quepos has a farmer’s market along the ocean every Friday evening and Saturday. You can buy local fruits and vegetables as well as other items at a very reasonable price.
From the balcony of Casa Moreno you can see the new Pez Vela marina. From there you can charter fishing trips. Offshore trips usually produce sailfish and maui maui and sometimes marlin and tuna. This area of Costa Rica is considered among the best in the world for fishing. The sailfish are very large, as are the maui. You can take your maui to any of the local restaurants and they will prepare it for you, or you can cook it on the gas grill on the balcony. If offshore fishing is not your preference, you can charter smaller boats for inshore fishing for snook, snapper and roosterfish. The world record snook was caught last year on a local boat from Quepos. You can also catch cubera inshore. They are a large fish and very good for eating.
I am not a surfer, but Hermosa to the north and Dominical to the south are considered the best surfing beaches around.Both are less than an hour drive from Casa Moreno.
If you go on river rafting or on canopy ziplining tours, the tour guides will usually pick you up at the house and drive towards the rainforest mountains to the east. The size of the trees in the canopy you zipline between is truly amazing.
The river tours start up the mountains and go thru jungle on fast moving water and end near Quepos. See the video on this website. It was done in November 2015 by a guest.
One of our favorite activities is to sit on the balcony or at the pool and enjoy the views. The sun rises to the east and lights up the mountains in the morning. It sets into the ocean in the evening.
We enjoy the local birds and wildlife. Squirrel monkeys often pass thru. They are very cute. Scarlet Macaws pass thru in the mornings and evenings. The colors of these birds are brilliant.
We also own Casa Azul which is neighbor to Casa Moreno. We can accommodate groups up to 20 with both houses. You can see Azul on vrbo.com/598152.
If you rent a vehicle, getting around is not difficult. There is only one major road between Quepos and Manuel Antonio Park so it is hard to get lost.
The best shopping for food and souvenirs is in or around Quepos. There are many good restaurants in the area. The standards for quality of food and service are high. There are several new restaurants at the Marina and many along the road to Manuel Antonio.
If you decide not to rent a vehicle, Quepos has a fleet of taxis and service is quick and reasonable. Shuttles to and from the airport and tours can be arranged with Sabrina the manager. Many of the tours companies know the location of our villas. Most times they will pick you up at the house.
