Pacific Fishing

Costa Rica’s Pacific coast is a prime destination for sport fishing enthusiasts.

Its rich waters are home to a massive variety of fish species, including sailfish, marlin, roosterfish, and snapper.

Fishing charters are available to take tourists out on the open seas to try their luck at reeling in the catch of the day.

The season for Pacific fishing in Costa Rica runs year-round with peak activity occurring during the dry season from December to April.

Whichever type of fish you are targeting, there is an abundance of marine life that can be found in Costa Rica’s Pacific waters.

The Sailfish can reach speeds up to 68 miles per hour which makes them a challenging quarry for even experienced anglers.

Marlin can grow up to 1,500 pounds and are highly sought after due to their size and strength.

Roosterfish make for an exciting fight at the end of the line and can weigh up 70 pounds or more. Snapper is another abundant species that can be caught year-round off Costa Rica’s shores.

The warm tropical climate of Costa Rica offers some of the best fishing conditions around the world and its coastal waters remain relatively calm even during storms due to its geographical location between two oceans.

In addition, there are multiple ports located throughout Costa Rica’s Pacific coast where charter fishing boats depart daily looking for that perfect catch.
