Fresh fish to cook

Wondering if there is a fresh fish market or any other place where I can buy fresh caught fish to cook at my vacation rental? We are staying in Manuel Antonio. Thanks again!

If you are driving from San Jose...great place to buy fresh fish and shrimp LA COOPERATIVA in Tarcoles beach...incredible good prices...but you can also find some great fresh fish in Quepos!

In Quepos, Martec inside the public market next to the bus station (and across from SuperMas). Excellent fish! Also just south of the Tarcoles is the Co-op that roadadvisor suggested. (I second that recommendation.) I've also purchased excellent fresh fish at Pescadora LaPista (next to Steve and Lisa's) in the Tarcoles region also. The fish is great here! Enjoy!

They sell fresh and frozen fish at Super Joseth in Manuel Antonio, otherwise, Martec in the Central Market of Quepos, or there are 2 other fish markets in Quepos on the road with Banco Popular. Enjoy!
