My boyfriend and I knew we wanted to go fishing during our trip in Costa Rica. We did some research and found that Fishing Adventures seemed to be the most "bang for our buck". The communication in planning our fishing excursion was easy, quick, and helpful. The crew (one captain and one mate, Bogdan) made our day so perfect. It was WAY more than we expected. They picked us up right on the beach of our hotel and introduced themselves right away. We learned about the waters, the fish, the traditional preparations. We didn't have to worry about setting the line, just reeling it in. They were encouraging during our struggles with the fish and even let me kill my own! My boyfriend caught a 50 lb Dorado which unfortunately got away, but Bogdan made sure we had plenty more! Between my boyfriend and I, we caught about 15 fish (including my 30 pounder!)
There was plenty of snacks on the boat (chips, fruit, local pastries), plenty of juices, water, beer, and soda, and two different types of sandwiches. The boat was extremely clean and a tour was given as soon as we boarded.
I wish we were in Costa Rica longer just to go fishing again. After speaking to some people at our hotel, we feel very lucky to have chosen Fishing Adventures because they offer a true local fishing experience and share their passion for the waters. I would highly, HIGHLY recommend Fishing Adventures and want to come back to Costa Rica just to fish with them again!
