If you wish to venture on your sport fishing vacation in Costa Rica by yourself, don’t be afraid, just take a few suggestions into considerations:
Costa Rica ‘s highway system is far from good, there are a lot of potholes and lack of markers, drive slowly.
Main roads at best are 2 lanes, and most of them are winding left and right up and down hills, be patient, take it easy on the car breaks specially if renting automatic.
Most small and medium towns are not shown in road markers or signs anywhere, get a good map or rent a GPS? and don’t be afraid to ask people for directions, learn a little Spanish.
Good fishing holes require 4 X 4, be prepared and drive slow. Rent a diesel car for the economy on gas.
There are other effective ways of getting around when sport fishing in Costa Rica.
Private Land Transfers
Liberia Airport Transfers
San Jose Airport Transfers
Regular inside flights depart to and from most medium-size towns around the Costa Rican territory, minimizing travel time. Private pick-up at local airports and car rental in most places makes it easier for sport fishing fans to get around.
From there on (excluding Tortuguero where boat transport is the only way to get around) public transportation by means of taxi-cabs and buses are available. Be sure to check with us for local providers schedules and pricing.
