The sport fishing novice will whet his appetite for angling in Costa Rica, while the veteran sport fisherman will want to return again and again to this angler's paradise that is rich in some of the widest variety of fish found anywhere in the world.
Marlin, Sailfish, Dorado, Wahoo, Tuna, Tarpon and Snook are in abundant supply year round. Twelve or more catches before the clock even strikes noon are a common occurrence now.
Costa Rica's picturesque coastline is rich with Roosters, Snapper, Snook, Marlin, Sails and Tuna if deep sea sport fishing is your pleasure. For inland and fresh water sport fishing, the Terraba and Sierpe river deltas provide additional outstanding opportunities.
Professionally outfitted charter boats (29 feet to 42 feet) manned by USCG licensed captains, many of whom have been fishing these waters since the 1970s, feature state of the art equipment and electronics. The seating areas are tailored for comfort to guarantee an exciting and great sport fishing experience.
Among the most popular sport fishing areas throughout Costa Rica include Flamingo, Tamarindo, Guanamar, Los Suenos, Quepos and Drake Bay along the Pacific Coast. Barra del Colorado, Tortuguero and Golfito are key sport fishing areas on the Caribbean side of the country.
Many of the world's record trophy fish catches have been caught off Costa Rica's Pacific and Caribbean coasts. In the world of sport fishing, Costa Rica holds 22 all-tackle records, 18 fly-fishing records and 77 line-class records according to the International Game Fish Association (IGFA).
The abundance of sailfish occurring in Costa Rican waters is among the top reasons sport fisherman return again and again to this sport fishing capital. Nothing quite compares to the formidable challenge of pursuing a sailfish, which can swim at speeds of up to 50 knots, making them one of the fastest fish in the world.
Billfish are in peak season December thru April. Marlin can appear as early as May, with prime fishing season September through November. Blue Marlin and rare Black Marlin can be found year-round.
Tuna, another favorite catch for Costa Rica sport fishermen, can often weigh in at over 200 pounds. Roosterfish, Dorado and Snook are yours for the taking year-round in and around the rocks inshore near river mouths.
One of the more undiscovered, off the beaten path areas for sport fishing is the Osa Peninsula in the southwestern corner of the county, where the rain forest is still natural, primitive and raw. In these extremely fertile and rich fishing grounds live some of the world's largest and most powerful fish.
