How to Get the Best Fishing Trip
As fishermen ourselves, we know the challenge of planning a quality fishing trip. These are the key aspects to consider when planning a truly world-class experience.
1. Pick the Right Destination for the Right Catch
Most fish can be found throughout the year in several locations. So once you know where you want to go, you can decide which species you want to fish for. Then it’s time to narrow down to the details, which really make the difference.
Picking the right destination is only part of the battle. The destination and target species will determine the best time of year and the type of fishing trip you’ll want, as well as the best lodgings and tours for you. From fishing luxury resorts to jungle adventures, this trip can have it all.
2. Define the Time and Crew
Knowing where you’re going lets you ask the right follow-up questions. When is the best season to travel? Where should you fish from? Who should you fish with? Which hotel is right for you?
These are the most important questions in our minds to create the perfect fishing package vacation for you. It’s true that when the fishing is great, any guide or captain can catch fish. However, when the bite gets tough, the guides and captains are the ones who pull out all the stops to make things happen.
Knowing personally the boats, captains, and crews helps us make the recommendations that will put you in the water at the right time and the right place to maximize your chances.

Originally from Wilton, CT, I first came to Costa Rica in 2010 to visit some Costa Ricans or “Ticos” who I worked with in the United States.
