Lupo Charters

Lupo Charters invites you to join them on a fishing adventure in the abundant waters of Playa Flamingo, Costa Rica. This charter is operated by Captain Mauricio Mena who has fished the local waters for over 15 years and knows the best fishing spots like the palm of his hand. He regularly participates in local fishing tournaments where he wins top prizes.

Fishing is done aboard a 29’ Pro Line center console with a capacity for 4 persons. Powered by twin 150 HP Yamaha engines, this boat is fast and steady. It features life jackets for safety, electronics in the form of a GPS and a fishfinder, a set of outriggers, snorkeling equipment, a livewell, and snorkeling equipment. There is also a toilet on board which is a huge plus if you are taking the family out.

Captain Mauricio offers inshore and offshore trips that can be booked for four, six, or eight hours. If you choose a half day inshore trip, you can expect to target Snapper, Amberjack, Kingfish, Jack Crevalle, and Barracuda. Alternatively, you can go further offshore in search of the big fish like Roosterfish, Giant Trevally, Marlin, Sailfish, Mahi Mahi, Tuna, and more.

Lupo Charters will provide you with everything you need on your trip including rods, reels, tackle, live and artificial baits, and a fish cleaning service at the end. They also have a first mate on board who will help you with reeling in your catch, and they serve drinks, snacks, and lunch on full day trips.
