Finding Pura Vida in Costa Rica
FISHING CHARTER: Kingpin Sportfishing

We had the best vacation in Costa Rica! Like most people, we went to learn how to surf on some of the best surfing beaches in the world. We booked our surf school with Costa Rica Surf Adventures on Tamarindo Beach. We had a great surf instructor that taught us everything we needed to know in order to be successful. Each day, the instructor would take us to a new beach with bigger waves. It was a workout but super fun and totally worth it. P.S. Beware of crocodiles! Yikes! We also set up deep sea fishing with Kingpin Sportfishing. If you have any desire to fish or have deep sea fishing experience, Costa Rica is a hotspot for catching a huge variety of beautiful, hard fighting fish. On our half day journey on the ocean, we hooked up two sailfish (catch and release, don't worry) and our captain actually jumped into the water while we reeled them in to get underwater GoPro footage of the sailfish. Other than the sailfish, we were able to hook a couple of Marlins, but we were proved unworthy of catching them. We also followed an enormous pod of bottlenose dolphins that made for an unforgettable experience. Costa Rica is a great vacation destination for relaxing, shopping, eating and great water activities that people of all ages can enjoy!
