You would like to book a day charter and share the cost with some other people?
Seems like a no-brainer. You’ve done it so many times before, Florida, Mexico, Carolinas… you name it. You just stroll down the dock in the late afternoon, check out the catch reports for the day and make a deal with a captain with one-two open spots for tomorrow. Easy.
Well… As you may have noticed, Costa Rica is a bit more complicated than that.
Unless you are already on an approved list to get on a boat that day, you won’t have access to the marina itself.
This is the easiest way for the authorities to battle trespassing and safety. So, no you can’t just take a look at the daily catch each boat had and sign up for a trip tomorrow. Yes, some people have ruined it for all of us. If we all can’t play nice, no one gets to play.
Wait… There’s no marina at all?
Yup. Some popular fishing areas don’t have marinas.
