DAY BY DAY
Fly into San José, Costa Rica where you will be met inside the airport and taken to your waiting private transfer. From there we’ll take you down to the sportfishing capital of Costa Rica, Manuel Antonio. You’ll stay at the boutique The Falls Resort, which offers its guests a quiet and serene setting in the midst of the tropical rainforest. Here you can find sloths, monkeys, over 1,000 types of plants, natural waterfalls, and the #1 rated restaurant in the area.
You will be picked up early in the morning for your first day of fishing! You’ll fish with perhaps the best in-shore guide and angler in Costa Rica, ‘Pepsi.’ Originally from the Caribbean Coast of Costa Rica and named Leonardo, Pepsi speaks native English and has been fishing his entire life, so he knows how to handle his boat and find the fish. Troll with live bait and wait for the reel to scream!
Head out early in the morning for another day full of roosterfish! Pepsi will have the live bait ready so if you missed out the first day, here is your second chance.
Take this day off to relax, rest your arms, and see what else Costa Rica has to offer. The nearby Manuel Antonio National Park is the most visited national park in Costa Rica due to its abundant wildlife and three gorgeous beaches.
Head back out along the Central Pacific coastline for another day of light tackle fishing. Roosterfish love to make a second run when you get them close to the boat, so be prepared to fight back! If you’ve already caught a few roosterfish, you can certainly go after one of our other in-shore species like snapper, grouper, jacks, barracuda, mackerel, and sea bass.
Enjoy your last day in Costa Rica, you’ve earned it! Today you’ll do the famous canopy zip line tour which includes a tilapia farm, butterfly garden, 14 cables, and the Tarzan swing!
We will pick you up and take you to the Quepos Airstrip so you can board your 25-minute domestic flight back to San José.
Wrestling Roosters includes staying at:
Understated and comfortable, with modern amenities and resplendent gardens, The Falls is suitable for families and couples looking for a little oasis just a few minutes from the area’s famous beaches and national park.« View Hotel »
