We have been to the rustic in a kind wonderful way town of Quepos many times. If you travel to Costa Rica you know about the airport tax upon departure and even if you are in first class on your flight you must wait in this usually enormous line to pay your $29.00 cash that nobody tells you about going in. Ok, to avoid doing that places like Punta Islita near Samara will do it for you upon departure of their resort or you may go to the Bank of Costa Rica (BCR) and do it there.
Today we checked into the BCR in Quepos, explained what we needed, and waited 2 hours only to be told that the Bank Manager was not in and that we should leave our passports and come back in another hour and a half, so that we did.
Bottom line, pay your airport tax anywhere but BCR in Quepos, it was a 3 and a half hour trip through hell and I don't think anyone should have to do it.
