    Hey I have a28ft mako booked in Playa Zancudo, Costa Rica for Feb 4,5,6 2007, with sportfishing unlimited www.sportfishing.co.cr
    Their other 28ft mako is available for the same days if we have enough interest we can get it as well. The boat is $550 per day plus tip. Hotel in San Jose runs from 80-120.us Zancudo hotels are 45-65 per day and includes laundry svc. Meals and drinks are cheap, there is lunch and drinks on the boat.. My wife, her friend and I will be there. McGolfer has expressed an interest. You would have shots at lots of Sails, blue/black marlin, tuna and some impressive dorado offshore.. Inshore gets a lot of pressure that time of the year and is not usually productive.

    The Itenerary would look like this. Leave Dfw Fri, Feb 2 late afternoon, arrive San Jose around 9:30, Take a cab to hotel Aeropuerto. Up O'dark thirty for the Early flight to Golfito, which leaves @6 or 6:30 am. In Golfito by 7:30 Take a cab to el muellecito(little dock) Eat breakfast at the little rest.
    Have all day saturday to hang out.. Fish Sun, Mon,Tue, Take the early flight out wednesday and you are back in Dfw Wed, afternoon.
    We are staying through the weekend to see the Taj Majal blues concert on the 10th.. We went to it year before last and it was an awesome show. Yall are welcome to do the same.. You wont want to leave..

    Let me know if you have any interest as their dates fill up quickly.

    Bret, I am very interested and put me down as committed. I will clear it with my wife (which should not be a problem). We can't pass up good fishing, drinks, and music. Only I will be fishing, not her. She may be interested in going for the ride on the boat if that is possible.

    I forgot to mention, for travel to Costa Rica you will need a valid Passport.. so if you dont have one or it has expired, you had better get the ball rolling as it can take up to 2 months for the govt to get it completed..
