“This is the place to for great fishing, relaxing, superb food and great hospitality.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2009

I visited Bahia Rica resort the fifth of february and stayed there for eight days. I can only say that i enjoyed every minute of my stay.
As a quite experienced kayaker from Norway i had great expectations about this stay, and it did not dissapoint at all. The first thing i noticed was the great standard of the rental kayaks at this place. The well known Dagger kayaks was superb in these contitions. As the conditions shifted from light wind to quite hard wind with rough sea, i noticed that these kayaks was made for the conditions. (I was also told that it was quite unusal with this kind of wind, but for me it jus made the trip more exiting). It was a pleasure to kayak between white beaches, reefs in blue and clear water.
Bahia Rica resort also offers comfy and clean rooms with really soft beds. (Nice when you have been kayaking the whole day).
I also went fishing with Thomas and Vigdis at Bahia Rica. They have a great boat for extreme sea fishing, and the thing that surpriced me yet again was the high standard of the equipment. The rods held standards above what you could expect as rental equipment. (You did not pay extra for borrowing the equipment either). I got an fishing adventure of life and god fishes like: Dorado, Jacks, Tuna, Rooster fish, and other fishes i don't even know the name of.
Even though the guide Thomas was from Norway i was surpriced of the skills he had when it comes to fish and brands, but after some questioning i noticed that he was educated as a marine biolog. (Great for learning lots of stuff when you're out there)

The hosts Thomas and Vigdis from Norway offers great hospitality, and i can highly recomend a stay at Bahia Rica.
PS: The food is as good as a top rated gourmet restaurant !!!!!

This is an undiscovered relaxation place in Costa Rica, enjoy some of the best things that Costa Rica has to offer, like the best fishing, ocean kayaking, sun, forest sounds to relax, and excelent prepared see food.
If you are not looking for a 5 star hotel prices, or its annoying unpersonality and amout of turists, this is the place.
