Connie, hot and humid
We sailed from Los Suenos to Quepos on flat seas and 8-10 knots of wind, getting there in mid-afternoon. We anchored inside Quepos Point, right next to Manuel Antonio National Park, in a beautiful bay with 2 sandy beaches and hills that went straight up from the water with many large homes partially hidden among the trees. As soon as we were anchored, Ed and I dove into the 87 degree water and were enjoying our swim, when 6 tour boats showed up and people poured out of them and into the water to go snorkeling. Aha! There must be a good reason the tour boats came here, so we grabbed our snorkel gear and swam over to join them. We discovered a rocky area with many tropical fish. As we floated on the surface and watched the fish, huge schools of brightly striped fish would surround us and it felt as if we were swimming in an aquarium. As dusk approached, the tour boats left and we again had the bay to ourselves. It was so quiet and peaceful we could hear birds and monkeys.
