Costa Rica has some of the best Sport Fishing in the world. The Pacific has incredible fishing for Sailfish, Roosterfish, Tuna, Dorado, Wahoo, Marlin, Snapper and more. The Atlantic is famous for Big Tarpon and Big Snook. Fishing is good year round, so the best time to come to Costa Rica is anytime.


Flamingo Beach has a full service marina and is the main hot spot for Sport Fishing on the Northern Pacific Coast. There are also charter boats available out of Coco’s Beach, Tamarindo, Ocotal, Potero, Brasilito, Nosara, Garza, Samara and Carillo beach.

Golfito is the largest town on Costa Rica’s Southern Pacific coast, but there are about a half a dozen Sport Fishing operators scattered between Drake Bay, Golfo Dulce, Golfito, Puerto Jimenez, and Zancudo Beach. The Southern Pacific is famous for its incredible inshore fishing. The really Big Snapper and Roosterfish are consistently caught here every year. The Southern Pacific, like the rest of the Pacific Coast has excellent offshore fishing for Sailfish, Marlin, Tuna, Dorado, Wahoo and more. (read more...)



The Rio Colorado area on the Northern Caribbean coast has been world famous for Tarpon and Snook fishing since the 1950?. Fish the rivers, lagoons and river mouths for Tarpon that average 100 pounds and Snook that average 20 pounds. In recent years many operators have started using larger boats. These larger boats not only make it easier to get out of
the river mouths and catch Tarpon but it has made offshore fishing available for fisherman wanting to catch Atlantic Sailfish, Atlantic Blue Marlin, Wahoo and Dorado. There are not many Sport Fishing operators on the Southern Caribbean coast. But the local fishermen catch Tarpon, Snook, Jack, Tuna, Dorado and more. (read more...)



Lake Arenal, Rio Frio River, Caño Negro Lagoon, Lake Nicaragua and the San Juan River are the major fishing spots in the northern part of Costa Rica and the southern part of Nicaragua. Fish on beautiful Lake Arenal and Lake Nicaragua for “Guapote”, the Guapote is basically a Central American Bass although it’s technically a member of the Cichlid
family. The Guapote can grow to over 12 pounds; they have a mouthful of teeth, a big lump on their forehead and fight twice as hard as any Largemouth or Smallmouth Bass. Fish the Rio Frio River, Cano Negro Lagoon and the San Juan River for Tarpon, Snook, Guapote and more. These areas receive very little fishing pressure and there are still giant Tarpon and Snook caught here every year. (read more...)
