Marina Pez Vela sailed a rough sea to calmer waters
Today in the Travel section we take a look at the past, present and future prospects of the Marina Pez Vela in Quepos, a first-class facility unique in Costa Rica, but one that has weathered some high seas.

As far as we can tell, those days are long gone. Today this marina is full of tenants, it has a yacht yard unrivaled in Central America, it’s expanding from 103 slips to 194, it plans to build a deluxe hotel — and it’s packed with people from Quepos.
