we stop in Guapiles town for a typical Costa Rican breakfast restaurant Selva Tropical.: fruit juice, coffee, eggs and the popular “Gallo Pinto”.

After breakfast, we continue for the Caribbean plains   we will see a banana plantation, where your guide will explain the process of growing and exporting that fruit.

Later, we abandon our bus and embark on the most exciting part of this tour: the boat trip into the jungle of Tortuguero National Park, were we will learn about how nature works, and to get a real feel of our tropical humid rainforest. Covering 29,000 hectares. Tortuguero is one of the most important nesting sites of Chelonia Midas, the green sea turtle. Where its forests and waterways are home for such endangered mammals such as sloths, monkeys, agoutis, coatimundis and manatees. There are also abundant birds, such as toucans, trogons, egrets, herons and anhinga’s, as well as crocodiles, turtles and countless colorful butterflies, including blue morpho.

Day 3: Tortuguero

Breakfast at the hotel, the northern Caribbean region from Tortuguero north to Barra del Colorado and beyond the Nicaraguan border also offers some of the world’s best Tarpon fishing. This prehistoric relic, over 80 million years old, is pound for pound, the toughest game fish anywhere. Boating an 80lb Tarpon is like dragging up a big truck from the bottom of the sea. Tarpon, fish or Silver King, as it is often called, will give you the fight of your life. Only the Marlin is its rival in stunning leaps and sheer, unbridled power.

Traditionally, the Tarpon season in Tortuguero  begins July/August, and ends in mid-February.

However, when the weather is good, anglers can catch Tarpon at any time of year.

We are going starting adventure Half day Tarpon Fishing Tour in the Caribbean Sea.

Day 4: Tortuguero - Manuel Antonio

Breakfast at the hotel, and check out  at the indicated time transfer to Quepos Manuel Antonio area , we going to take a local flight  from  Tortuguero to Quepos early in the  morning  we spending around 40 min  crossing the country from the Caribbean  side  to the pacific side ,then we going to take transfer to the El Parador Hotel where we will stay this is Amazing and luxury hotel in the central pacific side with one of the most terrific  sunset pacific views Manuel Antonio fishing seasons follow Central Pacific pattern.

As Manuel Antonio is smack in the middle of Costa Rica’s Central Pacific coast, the peak Manuel Antonio fishing seasons conform to the patterns of that area. As everywhere along the Pacific, you can catch any species every day of the year, but anglers coming for a Costa Rica fishing experience who set their minds of billfish, for example, will find the peak Marlin and Sailfish bite between December and April.

Yellowfin Tuna follow, coming into the Manuel Antonio / Quepos area a couple of months later, and peaking in July-September. If you are looking to boat a Dorado (Mahi-Mahi) for dinner on your Costa Rican sportfishing charter, your best bet is between July and October, when the rains wash reeds, branches and logs into the Pacific Ocean river mouths of Manuel Antonio and vicinity. And you might find a Wahoo screeching your reel when the water is clearest.
