Fishing in Dominical

We have some kids that love fishing and are looking for an outfit to take us out deep sea fishing and have a good time. Having a hard time finding something out there. We will be in the Dominical area in March 2013, any recommendations?

There are two way, one is a fishing charter from Quepos, these are all top notch and not cheap, 1/2 day can be $700.

The other, is hire a local guy with a small Panga, a 20ft boat with an outboard motor and downriggers, make sure he has life vest, marine radio, and a canopy for shade as the sun is hot and intense down in CR.

These locals would be best to find around Uvita/Bellena a few KM down the road, where you can also arrange boats to whale watch, dolphins and to Cano Island off Drake Bay...(if its reopened).

Figure at least $40 or more an hour. I have not sone this a few years, so fuel prices have doubled.

There is a guy on the Uvita/Ojochal forum that knows the area well, he knows the tours etc...

In Dominical, there is a outfitter/tour agency at the turn off as you pull into town, see what they have to offer as well.

From Thomas C:

There is a great zipline close to Ojochal, Osa Canopy Tour. And I recomend going to "Talipia los Pavones" for lunch, you catch your own Talipia in one of there spring water ponds and its cooked on a wood fire kitchen with Tico stylle rice, beans, patacones, yuka and salad. Fun, fresh and very afordable.

here are some operator websites to browse depending what:














Great Restaurants in Ojochal! Exotica & Mamma E Papa (Italian) & (my favorits!) but many others!

Geez, most of those links have nothing to do with fishing except for the Tilapia ponds which isn't really fishing. Have you gone fishing in the area or is this copy and paste time because your bored.

I should post a restaurant review. I'm a foodie and Mamma E Papas is way down the list for me.

There is a local guy named Isidro, that fishes out of Dominicalito. He has a 22 ft. panga with a canopy and is extremely reliable. He doesn't have a website but we have sent dozens and dozens of our guests fishing with him over the past several years and only once has he been "skunked." I know that he speaks some English but I don't know how well. None of our guests have complained about lack of communication. We always speak in Spanish. He charges $60/hour and if you wish, he will bring snorkeling gear.

If you need to get in touch just let us know and we will call him for you. shelterfromthestormcr@gmail.com
