Hi, im gonna be in costa rica for about a week or two in june for a surf trip and i figured i might spearfish some too. Does anyone have any information on some reef fishing near la playa coco? Also is there any specific way you have to ship spearguns, i usually just put them in my board bag but i wasnt sure if thats ok for out of country stuff. Im sure if you have any information it would definately help me a lot.

You have to hire a small boat to get to the good places.
There should be diveshops in Playas del Coco now who can arrange that
- hell
I freedove there in 1998,
was good with varying visibility.

I recommend you go out with dorado(mahi mahi)
fishermen overnight - might come across something interesting and BIG! ñ- mahi mahi up to five 1/2 feet, yellowfin tuna,
billfish perhaps

good hunting!
