Alex Lopez – 28'

An angling adventure with Alex Lopez charters is the perfect addition to your sun-drenched Costa Rican vacation. Located along the country’s stunning central coast, you’ll have direct access to the fish-filled waters of the Pacific. With your captain’s expert local advice, you’ll soon be hooking into anything from Mahi Mahi, to Marlin, Tuna, and plenty of other species. All you need to do is hop aboard!

Capt. Alex and his brother run a fleet of vessels out of Herradura and Jaco, all of which are suited for different types of fishing.  The brothers have been exploring these fishing grounds for all their lives. They like to say that they’ve spent more time on water than on land! They’re the perfect pair to introduce you to this fishery. Even better, they happily welcome guests of all skill levels on board.

On this adventure, you’ll be traveling from a 28’ 1995 USA center console, capable of accommodating up to 4 anglers. Why not bring the whole family, or invite your buddies for some friendly competition? Your vessel is decked out with a full toilet, top-quality navigational gear, and life jackets for all ages. There are even outriggers on board, which will come in handing as you troll your way to the hotspots!

Depending on the trip you opt for, you’ll have the chance to hook a whole host of world-famous fish. These waters are home to big game species such as Yellowfin Tuna, Mahi Mahi, Marlin, and Sailfish, tasty bottom-dwelling Snapper and Grouper species, feisty Barracuda, and plenty more. Let your captain know your skill level and what you want to catch, and they’ll help you plan the perfect trip.

If you’d like to mix up your adventure, you can also opt to snorkel. Just let your captain know beforehand. You’ll be provided with high-quality rods and reels (the brothers love Shimano at the moment), tackle, and a fishing license, as well as snacks and drinks. All you need to do is come aboard and get ready for an awesome adventure!
