"Packing List" Fishing Gear Tip by SURFIN7TH

Fishing Gear, Costa Rica: 1 reviews and 1 photos


Luggage and bags: I brought a rod and real and some tackle because I heard that some of the boats do not have light tackle. I caught my Rainbow Runner on that rod and many fish while waiting for the ferry to Puntarenas.

Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: sports sandles, sneakers, or boat shoes

Toiletries and Medical Supplies: bomine if you are prone to sea-sickness. thank god i'm not.

Photo Equipment: Waterproof cameras or waterproof bag for camera.

Miscellaneous: The airport officials temporarilly confiscated my tackle and leatherman tool at the gate and made sure that these items got checked under the plane. I don't blame them.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
