While Quepos town is touristy, it’s hard to beat the location right next to Manuel Antonio Park where the jungle and beach collide. Both JungleVilla Workspaces and Selina Manuel Antonio are good coworking and coliving options. Selina, located in Manual Antonio town, has more of a party vibe and JungleVilla tends to be quieter, but both are good spots for meeting other remote workers.
There are a few lovely places to eat and drink in Quepos and Manuel Antonio. El Avion Restaurant and Bar is a unique restaurant located inside an old fighter plane with the perfect sunset view. Rico Tico Jungle Grill has excellent meat and seafood. For more laid-back options, Emilio’s Cafe serves free-range meat and delightful coffee and Cafe Milagro roasts their own coffee beans and has fish tacos on the menu.
Quepos is the perfect launch point for exploring one of the world's most beautiful national parks. However, for something other than Manuel Antonio National Park, day trips to Manuel Antonio Hot Springs or Campesinos Waterfalls both provide a quieter day out in nature. A little further afield but worth the drive are the Tres Pilas Waterfalls, with three pools and a favorite local spot, and the Divina Vida Chocolate Tour which takes place on a cacao farm where you can learn how to make chocolate from pod to bar.
