  • Caught a TON of Sailfish with Diablo Sportfishing while Staying at Jungle Mountain Bungalow

    "My 6 day visit (2/18 - 2/23) was set up to assess Costa Rica as a final destination for this retired marine biologist and especially its offshore big game fishing situation. As someone who has fished all over the world (see www.BigMarineFish.com), I had selected CR as the best potential spot for my retirement and I was not disappointed! I also chose to stay at the Jungle Mountain Bungalows, owned by Capt. Kevin Malone and his wonderful wife, Alyson, to see what living up high in that less developed part of CR might be like. You can see from their website’s photos that the bungalows are really nice, stocked with everything you might need, bathed by cool breezes each evening (no AC needed up there on the mountain), surrounded by virtually pristine tropical rainforest (CR has the greatest biodiversity of any place in the world), unspoiled yet largely un-populated beaches along the beautiful coast, with dramatic sunset views of the Pacific from the bungalows’ porches. Idyllic. Driving up and down the mountain (4x4 required) was an adventure in itself. Kevin Malone is a top notch charter captain, extremely skilled in all the little details of big game fishing (such as rigging ballyhoo baits to look to a sailfish as if it were a real swimming baitfish) that make all the difference between just a nice boat ride vs. a day filled with the best fishing one could possibly enjoy (as I experienced with him, twice). The night before, we had decided to target sailfish offshore on my two days, so we got up early and Kevin drove his center console about 25 miles across a choppy Pacific to an underwater mountain known as the Furuno Bank where we fished both days. On day 1 we raised 9 sailfish and brought 7 to the boat to be fully revived prior to their release – which I viewed as an extremely good day’s outing. But he topped that performance the following day, going 9 for 11. These sailfish are big, 7 to 8 feet long and ours were about 90 to 125 lbs – more than twice as large as those I’ve caught in the Florida Keys – and since they spend a lot of energy jumping, sailfish are spectacular to fight. Ours usually took about 20-25 minutes to finally bring close enough for Kevin to grab their bill and remove the circle hook before release. On day 2, I had 30 minutes left on my charter “clock” but told Kevin to just “head for the barn” as I was exhausted and had had enough. All told, our sailfish would have added up to about 2,000 lbs! Can’t imagine better fishing."

  • Para olvidarse del ruido, del estrés, etc.

    "Un lugar lleno de tranquilidad y comodidad. De muy fácil acceso por la carretera que está en muy buenas condiciones. Con una vista muy bonita desde la casa. Atrás las montañas, al frente el mar. Tuvimos la oportunidad de ver a lo lejos como las ballenas expulsaban agua, esto, porque casualmente llegaban a la zona marítima frente a la propiedad. Pudimos ver varios animales como: monos, gran variedad de pájaros y mapaches. Muy agradecidos con la ayuda de Natalia por guiarnos para que llegáramos sin ningún problema. Cerca del parque Marino Ballena, para quienes quieran visitarlo."

  • Heaven on earth

    "My husband and I stayed in this beautiful cozy house for 10 days. House is very comfortable and private ( perfect for couple). Weather was so nice and comfortable, mostly rained in the afternoon or through the night. My husband fell in love with the view. Just like the pictures but much more beautiful because is real. Definitely need 4 wheel drive. Make sure the car has good tiers and good shucks, makes a big difference. First couple of days took us 30 min to get to town but after we get familiar with road, it only took us 10 min. It's a fun adventure by itself. You really don't need any ATV tour. We watched lots of beautiful birds while relaxing upstairs. Iguana, geico, frogs ( don't touch them, they are poisonous), snake and black squirrel were other creatures we saw around the house. I was hoping to see monkeys on the trees around the house but I guess they hang out else where. Jacqui is such a wonderful person. She was so kind and patient and worked in so many ways to make sure we are going to have a great vacation. Trina is very nice, friendly and helpful as well. We thank both of them to make this a wonderful memorable vacation for us. We really enjoyed our time there and we recommend this place."
