First off, Santa Teresa / Mal Pais is somewhat of a hidden gem in Costa Rica. It is a bit of a challenge to get here, but once you do, you won’t want to leave. This area has great surfing, restaurants and bars, without the tourist development and influence as most other destinations along this coast.
The location of Mal Pais makes it arguably the best location for fishing in Costa Rica. This is because of its close access to deep water.
Equipped with a fleet of tandem Ocean kayaks, your guides will take you on an Ocean fishing adventure. Your guides Pablo, Alex and Martin have many tricks up their sleeves to give you the best chances at a fish of a lifetime. I have to warn guests….. these fish are strong!! They will give you an amazing fight and have you grinning from ear to ear the entire time.
Getting up early is part of this experience. Being at the fishing village at 5 or 6 am to start your paddle will ensure you are on the water when the action starts. Trust me, it’s worth it!
Starting your day early means you can have had a seemingly full day of adventure and still be enjoying a refreshing beverage at a local establishment by lunchtime.
There is no telling what species you might catch with your guides on any given day, but species including: Jacks, Red Snapper, Rooster fish, Cubera Snapper, Amber Jack, Black Tuna, Mackerel Tuna, Barracuda and much, more are always possible.
Tactics including: popper fishing, deep jigging, trolling and live bait fishing are all methods that your guides might suggest when on your tour.
You will be equipped with quality gear to ensure you have the very best experience.
To ensure you do get that fish of a lifetime, we do recommend booking at least 2 days during your stay.
