Jake Alexander

Travel Consultant and Fishing Expert

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. I instantly fell in love with the country and culture, and could not wait to come back. After visiting several times, and a few extended stays, I decided to make this my home. I am passionate about fishing, SCUBA diving, as well as anything on the water. I strive to make your experience here in Costa Rica truly unique and world class.

Notes on Costa Rica

The Best of Manuel Antonio

Manuel Antonio offers the perfect opportunity to immerse yourself in the region’s vibrant flora and fauna just steps away from your accommodations.

Costa Rica Fishing Challenge: Elusive Wahoo

Anglers around the world agree the wahoo is the fastest fish in the ocean reaching speeds up to 60 MPH. They are found all over Costa Rica, but they usually travel alone so catching one is always a challenge.

Costa Rica Freshwater Trophy: Rainbow Bass

Better known as ‘guapote’ here in Costa Rica, they are the main target of freshwater anglers. As the top predator in nearly all freshwater habitats, the rainbow bass are prized for their combination of intelligence, aggression, and great tasting meat.

Travel and explore new places! Some of my favorite memories in Costa Rica begin with making a right turn down a dirt road and seeing where it leads.

Top tip when traveling in Costa Rica

Try something new and out of your comfort zone! Jump off a waterfall, go fishing, explore the local cuisine. Speak some Spanish! Costa Rican's are very friendly and happy to help you learn and practice.

Recent Traveler Stories

My husband and I chose Costa Rica for our honeymoon - with the help of Costa Rican Vacations (thank you, Jake!) we were able to go on an amazing trip full of adventure and relaxation. I was really thankful that they took care of most of the planning, and that they were able to find really cool hotels and experiences that we requested that were still within our budget.It was a trip to remember and we definitely will go back one day!

We had an amazing time, truly loved Costa Rica and will definitely go back some day.
Arenal was nice but could have spent half the time there, 2-days there would have been enough time, rained everyday, never saw the volcano due to fog. The hotel was beautiful, the staff in restaurant were very nice, those at the the front desk could have been much more friendly and inviting. I think we saw and did everything we wanted to, the hot springs were great.
Manuel Antonio was our favorite by far, the weather was perfect every day. All of the staff at the hotel were super friendly and inviting. The views and sunsets amazing, the only thing that could improve and make it any better would be better mattresses as the beds were uncomfortable.
We enjoyed the beaches, the national park and walks to town to dinner to try different restaurants. The day fishing on the “Double Nickel” was awesome, weather was great, the waters were calm, the crew attentive and made us feel comfortable. The catch was unbelievable a sail fish, mahi and two tuna, what an amazing day, one my grandchildren will surely remember as we will.
From the time we entered the airport, the meet and greet and all three of the drivers were very accommodating and went out of their way to stop along the way and show us some of the sights of Costa Rica.
