The Costa Rica edition of Coastal Angler Magazine is published and operated by the Hauer family who moved to Costa Rica in April 2015. They now live here full time and love living the “pura vida”, Costa Rica’s motto which means the pure life.

Thomas Hauer Jr., a 6 year US Army veteran, moved to Costa Rica within days of finishing his service to the military. While in the Army he served as an infantryman and a psychological operations sergeant. He also served in excess of 15 months overseas in Afghanistan. Thomas is now able to share his passion for Costa Rica, sportfishing, and surfing with the Coastal Angler Magazine audience.

Tom Hauer, Thomas’ father, has lived in Daytona Beach, FL for the last two years. He has twenty-five years of experience in marina operations, boat sales and the sportfishing business. Tom felt that the magazine was a perfect fit for both his family and the Costa Rica market. He enjoys hunting and fishing and plans for their edition to become the resource for outdoor sports information in Costa Rica.

Sarah, Thomas’ wife, was previously a medical coder, now she will be managing and operating Adventure Costa Rica in addition to fulfilling roles as a co-publisher. Adventure Costa Rica will be a fishing charter and outdoor activity booking business specializing in planning and coordinating trips for tourists from around the world. In other words, she will be our Costa Rica travel specialist.

They all look forward to educating readers on beautiful Costa Rica’s fishing, boating, surfing, environmental and conservation issues and more.
