Costa Rica Vacation and Sport Fishing

COSTA RICA - FISHING, CANOPY, & SNORKELING

Location: Manuel Antonio, Quepos

After your arrival on April 11th, you will be transported by shuttle or drive a SUV to Quepos/Manuel Antonio. This area was chosen because it's the best match for your itinerary and time available. Sport fishing, snorkeling, canopy (zipline), and more, all at one location with plenty of entertainment both day and night for everyone. Quepos / Manuel Antonio is a step back from the main tourist areas allowing for your party to really get a more complete feeling of the splendor Costa Rica has to offer.

3 Nights in Manuel Antonio, Quepos (day 1)

After arrival you will be picked up by our shuttle. From there you will be leaving to Quepos immediately. This is a fairly long trip taking 4 to 5 hours.

 

Your first three night's lodging is located only a few minutes away from downtown Quepos and about 300 yards from the beach. Currently there are Studio and Studio Plus rooms that are available. Costa Verde II Hotel

Yes the price per room is a little higher, but it is worth it with the savings you are going to get on airline tickets. This place is pure entertainment.

 

There are other locations like the El Avon (a 1954 C-123 Airplane) bar/club on the same property. Above and below are just a few pictures. To see more please visit: Costa Verde Manuel Antonio

 

Costa Verde Airplane Bar

Quepos Sport Fishing (day two)

Quepos is well known for all types of entertainment and fishing is surely one that many visit this southern little hideaway. We have chosen a boat for your party. It's a 36' Hatteras with AC, new engines, and all the gear needed to be very comfortable and will handle up to six fishermen. This boat has a excellent record in the Quepos area for not only catching fish, but making sure the client is well taken care of.

Recommended Places for Dinning

Manuel Antonio RestaurantsWe recommend one of these three very popular restaurants for your birthday. The first #1 would be Barba Roja (roha). Fabulous ocean views, ranked top by Frommer's and many others. Good prices and large portions. Known very well for parties.

 

La Cantina #2 and #3(cyber cafe train) is located where you will be staying if there is still room available. This place also has the Airplane bar as well. Popular for all ages, good food, great views, and a Costa Rica nightlife environment.

 

The great thing about the latter two is you will be moments from your rooms and still not be limited for entertainment and great food.

Using our shuttle

Just a little cramped

Being all your activities are in the same area we could take you to your hotel, drop you off, and return you back to San Jose for $450.

That would save you $500 to $600 in car rental, plus you don't have to deal with directions. You would use taxis while you were in the Quepos area.

Prices

Adjustments

The prices listed are either exact or very close. They include the use of payment by credit card because many service providers charge additional fees for their use.

Some of the prices are listed per person so you can adjust as needed. You might only choose to go out on one boat instead of two if one or more of your party doesn't want to fish.

 

Notes:

The prices here can change. Each service provider can change prices without notice. This itinerary is based upon the availability of each one of these service providers at 3:30 Central Time, Jan 22nd, 2008. Obviously, things can change between now and which time the reservation is made. In the event one or more services are not available, we have the right to find another provider of equal or better quality. You will be notified of this for your approval.
