Alex Lopez – Herradura

Captain Alex Lopez is an experienced guide who will make your stay in Costa Rica unforgettable. He has a fleet that can easily meet all of your needs. Each boat has a different capacity and comes equipped for various types of fishing, so it only depends on how you imagined your perfect day on the water. This boat is ideal for smaller groups. Check out Capt. Alex’s profile to see other great trip possibilities.

Hop aboard a 27’ center console. Since space is limited, the boat accommodates up to 4 guests to ensure there’s enough room for everybody to fish in comfort. There’s enough seating space and a T-top that covers most of the boat, to keep you out of the sun. Since you’ll be trolling, the boat also has outriggers.

The trips you can choose vary on how much time you want to spend on the water or what type of fish you can catch. If you’re bringing your kids along and want to stay closer to the shore, a 3-hour trip is the right choice. You can target Snapper, Grouper, Spanish Mackerel, or Roosterfish.

A longer trip will give you more time to go further offshore and target hard-fighting fish, such as Mahi Mahi, Barracuda, or Wahoo. You can try out trolling, popping, or bottom fishing.

The captain will prepare you fishing equipment, bait, and fresh water but feel free to bring your own beverages and snacks. To make the trip more enjoyable, don’t forget sunscreen and sunglasses.

All aboard!
