Costa Rica Cost Of Living Update: $100/person for trip to Corcovado National Park with some fishing thrown in

We decided to go from Puerto Jimenez to the entrance to Corcovado Park by boat.  Since the ride takes two hours to get there, my husband convinces the captain to let us and our two friends throw a few lines in the water.

Within ten minutes we catch our first fish only a few hundred feet from shore. “It’s a big jack,” says our captain. We end up catching a few more, including a rooster fish. All were thrown back except the last one; we cooked him over a fire on the beach.

It was a great way to squeeze two tours into one. And a great way to hear me scream “IT’S HUGE” at a decibel level rivaling that of a dolphin (I get very excited when I go fishing).
