What’s Shaking at Marina Pez Vela – December 2019

DECEMBER IS HERE and MARINA PEZ VELA has a TON OF NEWS and EVENTS to report! The transition into both the dry season and the high season is in full swing and perhaps the first thing that comes to mind in this time of the year are the magical painted sunsets which we are marveling at nearly each evening from the Marina. The colors, boats, clouds, and at times, what seem to be fires in the sky are magical and bring locals and tourist alike out to marvel in the beauty and magic of Quepos and Manuel Antonio. With the change in weather and in overall tourism flow, we get back into the swing with some of our most iconic events here at the Marina and in our community, which we will outline here along with some BIG NEWS.

TRIATHLON

The closing even of the COPENAE Triathlon series is back to Quepos this year and is the first weekend of the month. This is a HUGE event for a host of reasons. First, the triathlon brings in over one thousand athletes to the community along with all their friends, family and support staff. This has become boom economically for the area during what is traditionally a very slow weekend in early December. We want to encourage the entire community to get out and support this event the days and evenings prior as well as the morning of the event. This is a great positive kind of tourism for our area, healthy athletes, role models, and families celebrating health, wellness, and a competitive athletic environment which is inspiring many in our local community to get involved in running, biking, swimming, and sports in general. The family at Marina Pez Vela also would like to remind and request that EVERYONE here work to coordinate to minimize traffic and for those who are driving to be VERY CAREFUL and respectful of the athletes. This is a great event for our community and our support as a project and community to insure a fun, safe and supportive environment is crucial.

BRIGHTLIGHTS 2019: DECEMBER 7th

HUGE NEWS and BIG CHANGES to BRIGHT LIGHTS THIS YEAR. 2019 will have our first BRIGHT LIGHTS PARADE ON THE MALECÓN INSTEAD OF INSIDE THE MARINA. This amazing community event has outgrown the marina and in past years we have had to close the doors for safety and security which leaves large parts of our community out of the event. BRIGHT LIGHTS was conceived and has always been about our community more than the marina and this 2019 we are working with the Municipality and the main stage, concerts, live circus, and parade of floats will take place on the Malecón. Special aquatic floats will be parading along the malecón in the water and we encourage and welcome EVERYONE to come out and make this year’s BRIGHT LIGHTS bigger and better than ever as it continues its natural path as a QUEPOS event. The Marina will remain open this day, our restaurants and shops will be providing services, specials and even a view of part of the fireworks at the close of the night. The floats which will be featured in the malecón will be on display ALL MONTH here at MPV so if you can’t make the big night, you can come by the marina anytime in December to enjoy in the holiday spirit.

MOVIE NIGHTS ARE BACK

One of our most enjoyable traditions here during the starry nights of the dry season is free movie night at MPV. The tradition continues this year with an important change. MOVIE NIGHTS are going to be each WEDNESDAY in December. It is a great way to celebrate “hump day” for a happy hour and meal here at the project and a beautiful night at the best movie theatre in Costa Rica! Stay tuned to our facebook page and website for the list of this month’s movies or check the schedule on page 62 and remember, ITS FREE AND FUN!

PESCA SEAFOOOD

We are very proud to announce that we have a BRAND NEW restaurant at the marina, PESCA SEAFOOD HOUSE. PESCA is located in the heart of the plaza and is offering an amazing selection of fresh seafood, executive lunch specials, cold drinks and warm hospitality. PESCA is totally new concept, focused on becoming a part of what makes Quepos and the Marina so popular. Great seafood, casual environment, great value, and a local team of owners and operators who work to make every client feel at home.
