Member since July 2019
Vibert is the captain and owner of Vibert’s Secret Spot – Surf & Fishing Charter. He’s a professional and passionate local fisherman who's been fishing here since he was a little boy. His dad came from Barbados to Costa Rica about 40 years ago and was one of the first people to start sportfishing in the area of Guanacaste. He took Vibert fishing every day and eventually carried that same passion down to his son. After working as a captain on private charters for several years, Capt. Vibert had the opportunity to get his own boat and start his own business. Over the years, he's scoped out some of the best inshore and offshore fishing spots that this area has to offer. He knows these waters better than anyone and possesses the intimate, local knowledge required to catch the fish of your dreams!
