We have answered several emails with these questions in the last few weeks. I hope this will help you when making your decision for your trip to Costa Rica and letting us know how we can help you with your vacation.
Where are you located?
We are located in Jaco Beach on the Central Pacific Coast of Costa Rica. We are about 1 hour from the airport in San Jose. The majority of our charter boats and vacation rentals are located in the Los Suenos Resort, Jaco Beach, Hermosa Beach, Quepos & Manuel Antonio area. We know all the good captains in Flamingo Beach, Tamarindo, Samara, Carillo, Drake Bay, Mata Palo, Puerto Jimenez and Golfito. If you want BIG Tarpon and BIG Snook we fish with the best tarpon captains and fishing lodges in Barra del Colorado, Rio Colorado, Tortugero, Rio Parisima., Rio Frio, Cano Negro, Lake Nicragua and the San Juan River.
What type of services do you offer?
We can help you reserve your transportation, lodging, fishing, canopy tour, ATV tour, crocodile tour and more. We have lived here more than 5 years and know almost all the good things to see and do. We’ll send you to the same places we send our friends and families to.
Are you an agent?
We are much more than an agent. We have lived in Costa Rica for 5 years and we do act as an agent for our friends that fish throughout Costa Rica. We use the best guys with the best reputation and our prices are the same they have advertised on their websites. We do get a finders fee from them but it is not always money, sometimes it’s free fishing, sometimes it’s free fish.
What information do you need from me?
To help you with the right choices we need to know some basic information. What part of Costa Rica you want to visit? If you are not sure then just tell us what airport is best for you to fly into and what you want to see and do. How many people in your group? Is it family, couples, group of guys? When you would like to visit Costa Rica and how much time you have? What type of fish do you really want to catch? What do you want to do besides fish?
Can I share a boat with other anglers?
It is almost impossible to find a shared charter in Costa Rica…we just don’t have enough anglers in CR to make it work. We can put you on our calendar and use our network to try and match you up with other anglers looking to go fishing on the same day but it never seems to work out. Our oceans are usually very calm so most people looking for a share trip end up on a smaller private boat to keep cost down.
What are the different types of fishing?
Inshore fishing is done from smaller boats usually near shore along the rocks, reefs and river mouths. Live bait and lures work best for roosterfish, snapper, snook, jack, mackerel, barracuda, grouper, sea bass and more. Offshore fishing is done from larger boats usually 3 to 30 miles offshore. Trolling dead baits and lures is the best way to catch sailfish, marlin, dorado, tuna, wahoo and more. Bottom fishing is done from all types of boats usually in 60 to 400 foot of water. Slow trolling live baits on planers and jigging of the bottom are the best way to catch grouper, wahoo, snapper, tuna and more.
