    Just came back from another trip. Same locations Mal Pais, Samara and Gioness.

    This rivers were a trickle compared with this trip. We were able to take a pretty direct route from Mal Pais to Samara.

    This FEB trip it was only a foot deep. Easy crossings. Less mud and more dust but still a great time:clap

    Stayed at the Casa Tucan in Gioness this time, It was comfortable. I still prefer Casa Romantica but Casa Tucan was a nice change. They sell a craft beer on tap for those that tire of the Imperial and Pils.

    We also went fishing out of Garza.

    A friend caught this Rooster Fish

    The Rooster fish we released.

    Our boat caught a 25lb red snapper and yellow fin Tuna.

    We took the filets to the guide moms restuarant in Garza and we had a fish feast. We eventually had to tell them "NO MAS Por Favor!" The 4 of us could not eat another bite. :)

    One tip this trip was particulalry hard on our cameras 3 out of 4 cameras went down, water damage on all 3. one of the cameras my HD video Canon HF100. luckily the SD cards made it but the cameras are paper weights.

    fishermans name is Nino

    18 month bump

    My brother went to Costa Rica and visited Boca Del Tores Panama this year,

    said there was 8 woman to every 1 guy. Back packer crowd

    The roles were reversed and the woman pursued the men.

    Had a great time and also enjoyed the party at Rockin Jays in Puerto Viejo.
