Second Dock and New Water System Installed at Sierpe del Pacifico -


This Spring saw the installation of a brand new 6 slip dock on the western edge of the Sierpe del Pacifico Property.  The dock was constructed by Sierpe del Pacifico Operations Manager Guillermo Gonzalez.  


The dock features a sleek design utilizing round steel framing and a pressure treated pine deck.  It is ideally positioned in an area of little current regardless of whether the tide is coming in or going out.


This dock will provide faster and easier river access for 2/3 of the Sierpe del Pacifico lots.  It is also located right next to the community gardens, ideal for anyone who wants to grab a pineapple, some limones, or plantains on their way to their Sierpe del Pacifico residence.

A new water delivery system was also installed along the western 2/3 of the property in early January.  All Sierpe del Pacifico lots now have a water hook-up ready to go.  


An engineering firm from San Jose was brought in for this project.  They measured the distance and elevation change to each house from the holding tank in order to recommend the correct size tubing to generate the desired water pressure and volume for use in the homes.  Guillermo and other members of the Sierpe del Pacifico team oversaw the work.

Sierpe del Pacifico Builder Marc Leroux recently completed two homes along the Sierpe River - one at the on the grid "Cocoa Farm" property complete with a swimming pool, and another at an off the grid lot located close to the Sierpe River Mouth.  Both houses show exquisite taste, thoughtful planning, and efficient design.  Along with the Sierpe del Pacifico Owners' Lodge, these homes are among Marc's best works to date.

Winter Fishing Report 

Good jig fishing was the norm in November and December.  A nice mix of grouper, snapper, and amberjack filled the fishbox of "La Carlita" every day.  

January was a different story.  It brought some of the most consistently difficult fishing conditions ever seen in the area.  Sierpe del Pacifico fishing captain Deidy Chavarria put some of the blame on frequently changing ocean currents that were heating up and cooling down the water with abnormal frequency making the fish uncomfortable.  The large pods of 100+ pilot whales taking up residency around Cano Island was another culprit behind the slow fishing.  Pilot whales are essentially a large dolphin and are known to feed aggressively on reef fish.  They are great for whale watching, but bad for fishing!

Fortunately things went back to normal in February with a very active inshore bite.  Big jacks, mackeral, and roosterfish were caught regularly. Several of the roosterfish weighed in excess of 40 lbs.

In other exciting fishing news, local fishing captain Pablo Chavez briefly hooked a 70 lb tarpon in the lower Sierpe River.  Tarpon are only native to the Carribean coast of Costa Rica, however a few of them swam through the panama canal and have started reproducing on the Pacific Coast.  Hopefully we start seeing a few more around as they are a very desirable sport fish.
