| January 14, 2014

BJ and her husband work in the travel industry and are based out of Georgia. The couple recently sailed on Star Flyer, exploring Panama and Costa Rica. BJ shared her experience on her blog BJ’s Travels, and we’ll be publishing excerpts from the journey here. Enjoy!

Captain’s Log, Star Flyer Date 112913 (Friday) Quepos

After breakfast, we watched the ship anchor off the coast of Quepos. We got on the tender which took us to a dock about a 20-minute walk from town (our first dry landing!). There were folks on the dock handing out tourist info. We walked along the water to town.

The town is not really a tourist destination, although there is a busy bus station and lots of people coming and going. We walked along the outskirts of town. A couple of shops were having Black Friday sales. 
 
We found a neat open air church. It was deserted, so I decided it was okay to explore. I went up the steps to the attic and was startled by Jesus, in the corner.

We walked around some more and found Dos Locos to be inviting so we stopped in for a beverage. Across the street was an appliance store where the appliances were selling like hot cakes!

We had seen an unusual spire over the top of the buildings so we decided to check it out. It was La Luz Del Mundo. It did not appear to be open so we didn’t get to peek inside.

Along the way, we saw Quepos’ fish market, the car wash, the real estate office and lots of dogs. Everyone was very friendly.

On the way back to the dock, we went through a colorful market.

A tender was waiting for us at the dock. We thought we had missed lunch, but as we passed through the dining room there was still a little food out, so I stopped for a bite. Lunch today was Asian. Tony had sworn off of eating until dinner so he headed for the room.

It was looking like rain so we checked out the movie ‘Crossing Over’ from the purser’s office and that occupied us until cocktail hour.

We had dinner with folks from the first night, as well as three single people. Tamas played the accordion during dinner.
