Walking Around: This Isn’t McDonald’s

January 9, 2015

On a recent trip to Manuel Antonio National Park, I stopped at a pharmacy in Parrita, which is about 20 minutes outside of Quepos. While my cohorts were inside, I noticed this interesting sign. It appears to be a large “W” (or is it an upside-down “M”?), and underneath it reads “comidas rapids” (fast food). Upon closer examination, it appears that these inverted golden arches belong to the Hotel Wilson. I didn’t get out of the car to check if they sell a Big Mach or a Merry Meal, but if you’re passing through, stop and let me know.
