What’s Shaking at Marina Pez Vela? – May/June 2016

By Scott Cutter, Sales Director

Our thanks to the Bonnier Organization and the Costa Rica Tourism Board (ICT) and the whole Quepos community for once again welcoming the 350 anglers from around the world to last month’s Offshore World Championship. It was an exciting and dynamic event with teams coming in from as far away as Angola and New Zealand. We are proud that Marina Pez Vela and its hard working team was able to bring this great event to Quepos for the 4th straight year.

February was an incredible month at Marina Pez Vela with an endless line up of events including the Quepos Billfish Cup, Costa Rica’s largest Super Bowl party, scholarship events for local schools, a Valentine’s Day Concert and an incredible season of tourists enjoying these amazing facilities. The energy and excitement will continue in March with new stores and services opening, this year’s earliest Easter Week/Semana Santa and the Costa Rica national soccer team back in action.
