Gerardo has six sons, five fishermen and one is a successful businessman. He says that fishing is a family tradition. He notes that he thinks his sons are truly happy to carry on the family tradition because they are all fat and happy, a local sign of a good life.
Puerto Soley is a traditional fishing community located 6km away from La Cruz, Guanacaste. Beach front, and lined with small dirt roads, Puerto Soley is a sleepy community that contains mostly the homes of fishermen and their families. There is a small police station and a few houses that sell freshly caught fish, ceviche, and the occasional beer.
