birdwatching costa rica

Look who visited Aqua-yoga class today – a Bare-throated Tiger -Heron.  Although this is not my photo, the bird looked just like this, topping out at 30 inches.  They’re common on both coasts of Costa Rica.  Today’s sighing was just 10 kilometers from Casa Mango and Casa Papaya.

What do you need to make your vacation dreams come true in Playa Samara?

After a 30 minute fight, Ken caught a beautiful 29 pound Snook from the beach in Playa Samara.  It was lucky that Jose passed by with his cell phone to film it and even luckier that Fomfy was on hand to “catch” the fish.  Ken has returned to his home in Canada but Fomfy is at Super/Licorera Las Olas in Samara evey day to help you find the right tackle and direct you to the best fishing spots. He can set you up with charters, as well.
