About the Osa Peninsula:
While there are luxury resort options available, my favorite destination on the Osa Peninsula is off the beaten path, in the rain forest where the Sierpe River meets the Pacific. While fishing can be good year round, things really ramp up November - April so plan accordingly. The Sierpe River is a unique fishery in itself with plenty of cover and structure for Snook and Snapper to hide. In a short afternoon of fishing we caught a fantastic dinner, which a local restaurant prepared for us. The real diversity comes when you work your way out the mouth of the river to Drake Bay and the Pacific Ocean. Amberjack, Cubera Snapper, Rooster Fish and Tuna were just a few of the species we caught. World class fishing and spectacular encounters with crocadiles, howler monkeys and whales make this trip special. It's active, it's physical and it is simply the best fishing I have ever Experienced!
Sierpe del Pacifico:
Stay in one of the brand new vacation rental Casitas in the rain forest high above the banks of the Sierpe River. Wake up to the sounds of howler monkeys and parrots and enjoy a cup of Costa Rica's finest coffee on the porch as you watch and listen to the rain forest wake up. Sierpe del Pacifico is a vacation community for active individuals and families. In addition to it's beautiful natural surroundings, it gives anglers access to what could be one of the biggest concentrations and the widest variety of fish anywhere in the region. Fish aboard the Carlita II with an experienced, english speaking Captain. As the son of a seasoned Captain, Sierpe del Pacifico's Capt. Deide has been fishing these waters his entire life. He knows where fish live, he knows how to make them bite and he can show you the subtle nuances that trigger strikes from different species. While these techniques can be physically demanding, they really produce a lot of bites. On a recent trip we used big topwater baits for surface strikes from huge Cubera Snapper and Rooster Fish, and fished the entire water column with butterfly jigs for Tuna, Amberjack and other palegics. Our efforts landed us 14 different species in 2.5 days of fishing making this one of the most exciting places in the world to fish.
