Rhino FAQ (6)

How to find us?

Rhino Charger is moored in Tamarindo Bay, Costa Rica. Follow the map to Restaurant Pescador (#64) and our crew will meet you on the beach.


From the Liberia Airport.

The road has excellent signposts leading the way to Tamarindo. Exit the Liberia airport and turn right. Continue straight for about twenty-five minutes, passing through the town of Filadelfia after about 15 minutes, until you come to the town of Belen. In Belen you will turn right before the gas station on the corner. After turning right at Belen, you will pass through the towns of Santa Ana and after approximately 22Km from Belen you will enter the town of Huacas. At the only major junction in Huacas you will make a left turn towards Tamarindo. Continue straight for ten minutes until you reach the town of Villa Real. At Villa Real, turn right towards Tamarindo (an almost 90 degree switchback). Drive about five Km until you enter Tamarindo.

From the San Jose Airport.

Take the Inter-Americana (Highway 1) north in the direction of San Ramon and Puntarenas. Continue on this road past Puntarenas until you get to a junction at Juntas. Take a left turn at the junction (Shell station on your left hand side) in the direction of the Puente de la Amistad / Friendship Bridge/ Tempisque Bridge (All are synonyms), which crosses the Gulf of Nicoya. Once you have crossed the Gulf of Nicoya over the Puente de Amistad/Tempisque Bridge, continue until you reach a T in the road. At the T, turn right and follow the signs leading you to the town of Nicoya. When you reach Nicoya, continue straight (you need to take a left at the traffic light to enter the town of Nicoya) toward the town of Santa Cruz. As you leave Santa Cruz, still on the same road, you will pass a bridge. Turn left at the first road signs pointing to Tamarindo, immediately after crossing the bridge when leaving Santa Cruz. Follow this road for about 30 Km. You will eventually end up in the small town of Villa Real. At Villa Real follow the
 signs toward Playa Tamarindo (a left turn). Within 5 Km you will arrive in Tamarindo.

Do you split charters?

No we do not split charters.  We cater to your group and your group alone.  We have found splitting charters can result in disparate anglers with different goals for their trip.  When you book with us, you receive our full dedication to provide you a fun and memorable fishing adventure.  We can only achieve this if we have one client and can make you our priority.

Does your crew speak English?

We are one of the few boats in the Tamarindo fleet with three crew members and probably the only boat with two English speaking crew members. 

Do you practice catch and release?

Yes, we do for bill fish.  The catch and release method will preserve these beautiful sea creatures for years to come thus keeping the fishing in Tamarindo plentiful for future generations. As for the other great eating species you may catch (Tuna, Mahi Mahi, etc.), you may keep what you catch.  Many of our clients bring their catch to a local restaurant and have it transformed into a delicious seafood dinner.

Can you help us with travel arrangements?

Yes, we are happy to help you with your travel arrangements.  Contact us for advice or to help you book your trip.
