Our Value

Wide Mouth Frog is a popular backpackers with a relaxed friendly vibe.

Set amongst lush tropical gardens we are a true oasis in the heart of Quepos offering accommodation to suit every budget. Our purpose built shared spaces include a large kitchen and dining area, onsite restaurant, roof terrace, swimming pool, hammocks, gardens and plenty of sun loungers. 

Wide Mouth Frog was born in 2003 from the shared dream of a Kiwi / British Backpacking couple.  Having  both traveled extensively throughout the world they had experienced first hand what was important when traveling. Creating a place where all types of travelers could meet and share experiences is paramount to the success of the Frog.

We encourage guests to meet and get to know one another, cook together in our large well equipped kitchen or watch a movie in our open air TV lounge. So whether you are a couple, large group, family or solo traveler we welcome you.

Local Area

Quepos is an authentic and bustling harbour town. Wide Mouth Frog is rated number 1 for location as we are 200 metres from the main bus station. We have banks, restaurants, bars, supermarkets, pharmacies and shops on our door. 

Known as the gateway to Manuel Antonio, the small, busy town of Quepos serves as the gateway to the national park, as well as a convenient port of call for travellers in need of goods and services. Although the Manuel Antonio area was rapidly and irreversibly transformed following the ecotourism boom, Quepos has largely retained an authentic Tico feel. The bus leaves every 20 mins to the National Park and costs less than $1.

Quepos accommodations are generally very good value, and there's a decent restaurant scene that belies the towns small size. Seafood restaurants in Quepos are plentiful and meals cost around half the price of the overinflated tourist prices in Manuel Antonio. Quepos is also gridded with easy-to-walk streets, which provide the opportunity to interact with the friendly locals.



If you want to start your day off right or end a busy day's sightseeing with a good meal, you don't need to venture too far.
