Fishing Reports November - December 2008

January 12, 2009
- I am going to use this space to inform about the Costa Rica earthquake on last Thursday, January 08.
This happend on a remote location, right back of the Poas Volcano, it doesn't affect in nothing the road from San Jose to any other city/town off San Jose. The way from San Jose to Guanacaste is fine, it is nice to drive to Papagayo or Tamarindo region.
Right now, the country has a "emergency condition", however, it is only to assist the "Vara Blanca" region, the quake epicenter.
