At the bungalows you can rent a boat to go fishing in the Golfo Dulce. They have a very good service and afterwards they or yourself can cook what you fished.

I went here to catch my first rooster fish and I caught two. Boat and captain were great. Thanks Humberto, Alan, and Wes.

Cabo Matapalo itself is beautiful but somebody should warn visitors that getting there is seriously taking your life in your hands. It really doesn't matter how nice it is because the road makes you insane getting there.

We use Amentours, Costa Rica. We have fished with them 3 years now, and plan to fish with them next year as well. We always have a great time. Henry, the owner makes the best lunches!
