A huge snapper caught with the head of a skipjack tuna in Tamarindo, Costa Rica
Tamarindo, located in the Guanacaste Province of Costa Rica, along with being a great surf and resort spot, is a really fun place to fish. I was there in December, which is supposed to be a good time to catch marlin and sailfish although we didn’t, but I had just as much fun reeling in the hard fighting skipjack and yellowfin tunas that bit almost every time we threw out a line. We were even lucky enough to catch a snapper.

A View of the Caribbean and the beach at Cayo Jutias, Cuba
The clammy heat in Cuba can really wear you and your inner thighs down, and sometimes the only thing that will provide temporary relief is a cool swim and a couple of mojitos. Luckily, there is always a beach relatively close by to calm your chaffed thighs and a mojito to restore your spirit. Cayo Jutias is an exceptional example of one of those beaches that also serves mojitos. The 4 mile white sand beach of Cayo Jutias, Pinar del Río, is the perfect spot to cool down, and if you are in the mood, drink up. Cayo Jutias is a small islet just 40 miles outside of Viñales. You can catch a bus for the day, or take a rental car toward the town of Minas de Matahambre and then take the stone causeway that leads to the secluded beach on the Caribbean.
