Costa Rica Vacation..Can't Wait To Get Back For More

Pura Vida Baby

Just returned from another great trip to Costa Rica again! What made this trip more special is that I got to introduce someone else to my favorite fishing country -my girlfriend.

Each time to get back to Costa Rica I gain a new perspective about the people of Central America, the incredible seafood dishes, cold Imperial Cerveza's, easy flights to San Jose (5 hours direct) and most importantly, how easy it is to relax down there.

Yes we were able to find plenty to do each day and the sunsets in this part of the globe are nothing short of spectacular to say the least! Each evening was a treat to watch these and even better to enjoy them with some Cold beers or a fresh Mojito.

While the weather was predicted to be rainy each day, the only thing that dampened our spirits was that I wasn't able to spend more time ut on the water fishing. Yes this was a sweet vacation, a fishing vacation..perhaps not this time, but I still managed to enjoy a day out on the water. The only true mistake I made was our guide. Pez Rey is not somebody I would use again, huge issues with the outfitter than nothing like sitting there for hours bored while our guide tries to figure out what to do, keep me sitting there while other boats are hooking up?? Pepsi our guide was a decent guy he just was a bit clueless this day. One Jack and two breakoffs on Mackeral (use bigger mono guide) were the only thing that came my way. NO Roosterfish made it to my rod so it looks like I lucked out on another Costa Rica trip without any good stories.

Monkeying around at our Hotel Bar each afternoon after a trip to the Playa (beach for those who do not understand Spanglish) made a dip in the pool, more cold beers and Monkeys playing! Yes this is Costa Rica, you never know what to expect.

Gorgeous Pacific waters made for a nice sightseeing trip since the fishing stunk. Clear water,high tides and crazy riptides made for an interesting boat ride that day. There is always plenty to do while in Costa Rica while on vacation, from Sea Kayaking, Canopy zip line tours, Happy Hours, Surfing and visiting local national parks.

*Look for more great reports and pictures this week from our trip...I have a feeling you will enjoy them!

Costa Rica Kayaking,

Thanks for commenting and what an incredible experience we had, so much to do and so little time as they say.

Wish I had more time to spend Kayaking, boating the Pacuare River years ago is till on my top adventure I've ever had!
