Jonny Pescado is back, selling fish next to the catholic church here in Playa Samara. He sells from icey coolers on the back of his truck, Tuesday through Saturday.
Johnny sells fresh fish from local waters. Most days he has Pargo (Red Snapper), whole and filet.
He often has shrimp, both ocean caught and farm-raised 😦 . But Johnny specializes in Yellow Fin Tuna. Fresh caught Ahi is one of the best things about living in or visiting Costa Rica.
Most fish and shrimp ranges 4,000-7,000 colones per kilo. Since the kilo is over two pounds and 1,000 colones is a little less than $2.00 right now, I just think of 5,000 colones/ per kilo as $5.00/pound.
I just bought some morning-caught Dorado filet for fish tacos.
