The much-anticipated Marina Pez Vela, an upscale complex located in Quepos, Costa Rica, has at last completed the first phase. Conceived in 2001 by Harold Lovelady, a sport fishing enthusiast and home-owner in Quepos, Costa Rica, Marina Pez Vela answers the need for state-of-the-art marine services on Costa Ricaâ€™s spectacular Pacific Coast. The breathtakingly beautiful location has long been a popular yachting destination and is also one of the best sport fishing regions in the world.
Marina Pez Vela’s first phase offers immediate access to 100 floating concrete slips ranging from 35-200ft. Facilities include a 700ft long fuel dock, fully stocked on-site marine store, bathrooms and shower facilities, on-site Customs and Immigration office, septic treatment plant with in-slip pump out and full and complete electrical hookups.
Future plans to develop Marina Pez Vela as a world-class facility incorporate a marine service center with a 150-tonTravel-Lift, retail shops and restaurants, concierge services and recreational facilities, residences and a first-class hotel. A short ride from Marina Pez Vela is the Manuel Antonio resort area, which is home to a well-heeled expatriate community attracted by tropical forested mountains and white-sand beaches. Manual Antonio National Park is a 1500 acre nature preserve with rolling waves that lure an international surfing crowd.
