Kayak Fishing

Fish for Jacks, Barracuda, Snapper and Roosterfish From Your Kayak

You’ll be both captain and mate with this hands on approach to kayak fishing. Your local guide, Ralph, has been fishing all his life and has been making quite a name for himself as the country’s leading kayak fishing guide. Fish for jacks, barracuda, snapper, grouper, dorado and of course roosterfish in the bays and nearby the islands that dot Costa Rica’s coast. Being pulled around the bay by a fish on the other end of your line is a sensation like no other.

Day 1: Fly into Liberia, Costa Rica where you will be met inside the airport and taken to your waiting private transfer. We’ll take you right to your beach front resort, the Flamingo Beach Resort. This is located on the beautiful white sand Playa Flamingo and offers its guests a full range of amenities like casino, spa, game room, restaurants, and a huge pool with swim up bar. You can customize your trip by choosing their all inclusive plan or just having breakfast included if you wish to eat meals on your own at local restaurants.

Day 2: Take this day to catch up from traveling, relax, and get acclimated to the tropics. Relax and enjoy the beach and pool as you realize that you are on vacation in paradise!

Day 3: Fishing day! Head out for your first day of kayak fishing with legendary guide Ralph. A native Costa Rican, Ralph was actually born in the US but grew up in Costa Rica. He is one of the classic friendly Ticos who always has a smile on his face and genuinely loves fishing. He has won local fishing tournaments in the past and loves sharing his passion with others. The fishing trips generally last five hours, but if the fish are biting and it’s a good day don’t be surprised if Ralph is in as little a hurry to get back as you are. His new fleet of Hobie pedal kayaks means it is now easier than ever to get to where the fish are and use your hands to fish while your legs do the work.

Day 4: Take this day off to relax at the pool and rest your muscles or enjoy the white sand beach at Playa Flamingo.

Day 5: Head back out for another day of kayak fishing! Grouper, snapper, jacks, barracuda, and the popular roosterfish can all be found in the calm bay near river mouths and rocky islands. If you get really lucky you can even land a dorado or yellow-fin tuna for dinner!

Day 6: Enjoy a full day of adventure in the nearby Rincon de la Vieja National Park. On the Buena Vista Combo Tour you’ll do the canopy zip-line tour, enjoy their huge waterslide, go horseback riding, and have a few hours to enjoy their mud bath and thermal hot springs.

Day 7: Get back on the water one last time to see if you can find the mighty roosterfish that has been avoiding you all week! The roosterfish are abundant in Costa Rica all year long and are typically found near rocky islands and reefs as they spend all day ambushing prey.

Day 8: We will pick you up and take you back to the LIR Airport for your flight home.
