Finally at Pez Vela Marina
11 February 2018 | Quepos, Costa Rica
Sometimes you hear about a marina that you look forward to seeing. But when you arrive, various aspects of the marina are not what you expected. For one, the WiFi is weak, making it difficult for communication over the Internet, and with the new program 'What's App Messenger' that helps in messaging, texting, e-mailing with family and friends. Secondly, this marina has the most surge that we have ever experienced in our travels. But the marina has fuel, potable water at the dock, electricity, trash bins, laundry service, a shipyard for repairs (which we do not need), several restaurants, hair salon, a famous National Park nearby, rental cars, and security keeping our boat safe while we are gone on inland tours. The marina's focus is on charter fishing, and transients (cruising boats) seldom drop in. The rate is steep. We'll stay the week we planned for because we will be on our tours four of the seven days. But then we will happily move on.
