Costa Rica rod/line choice

Hi All,

A friend of mine will be traveling to the Salinas Bay area in the northwest of Costa Rica for a honeymoon in a couple weeks. He loves fly fishing and has a cheap 6wt for largemouth and rainbows around here in Missouri. As a new guy here at the FD and his wife still in school he can't afford a guided trip while there, much less a saltwater setup. I told him to take mine but he doesn't feel right taking more than one.

My question: Since he'll only be fishing from the beach should I send a 10wt or 12wt? Also, a WFF or OBS line? I've never been there and there's not a lot on the web for anything other than the Crocodile Bay area which is on the other side of the country. I'd appreciate your input as I'd really like to offer the best help possible.

May you all have a wonderful 2018 and enjoy tight lines wherever you go.
