Costa Rica Vacation and Sport Fishing

COSTA RICA FISHING, CANOPY, SCUBA DIVING

Location: Manuel Antonio, Quepos

After your arrival on January 9th, you will be transported 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, scuba diving, canopy, and kayaking, 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.

Costa Verde in Manuel Antonio
3 Nights in Manuel Antonio (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 available is one bungalow that sleeps 6, a studio that sleeps 4, or one efficiency that sleeps 4. These rooms do not have ocean view, though from other locations like the El Avon (a 1954 C-123 Airplane) bar/club, the view of the Pacific is great. Above and below are just a few pictures. To see more please visit: Costa Verde Manuel Antonio

Make sure you spend some time there and you will see more pictures of the type rooms they have available that are mentioned above. Better hurry though.

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.

Birthday (eve of day two)

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.

In the afternoon your transportation to and from the canopy tour is covered by the canopy company, so you won't need transportation.

Kayaking (morning day four)
Ocean Kayak Manuel Antonio Costa Rica

Paddle near islands to see the nesting grounds of sea birds. Paddling a kayak on the open ocean can be an exciting way to experience Costa Rica's marine and coastal wonders. Sea kayaking is much easier than river kayaking, and most trips can be done by people who have never tried the sport before. A sea kayaking tour is an opportunity to get a close look at the myriad of life below and above the ocean's surface; from flying fish and sea turtles to frigate birds and pelicans. Explore some hard to reach offshore islands and coastal estuaries.

Return to San Jose (afternoon day four)

San Jose HotelIt will take approximately four hours to drive back to San Jose from Quepos depending on the the traffic and how fast you drive.

 

 

You will be spending the evening at the Garden Court Hotel.

 

 

It's a great place to relax with a casino, pool, and a happy hour at Pirates Bar & Grill.

 

 

Excellent ratings on TripAdvisor.com.

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 this time. 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.
