    Puntarenas = beach paradise. The area gets more sun per square foot than, hello, anywhere else in the world! So grab your bathing suit and dive into the warm blue water.

    Puntarenas is a fishing town. There are some very seasoned fisherman that will take you out to sea and back. Found this fisherman named Dom (he's a NYC / Jersey cuban guy with an attitude....you got to love this guy). He took care of us all day, provided us with food, beer and knows all the fishing spots. First time deep sea fishing and caught myself a 300+ lb. sailfish (got it on flip cam too). Anyhow, this guy knows how to navigate through the waters and will take you to all the fishing spots. I highly recommend finding him in Puntarenas.
