Places in Costa Rica for Fishing

Costa Rica has some of the best Sport Fishing in the world. At our Pacific Coast you will find Tuna Wahoo, Snapper, Roosterfish, Marlin, Dorado and Sailfish. At our Atlantic (Caribbean) Coast you will find Tarpon and Snook.


Here are the best places in Costa Rica for fishing.


Our Northern Pacific Coast

Guanacaste is amazing for Sport Fishing in Costa Rica. You will find: Dorado (Mahi-Mahi), Snapper, Tuna, Marlin, Sailfish, Roosterfish and Wahoo. The marina at Papagayo Bay is astounding, but you can also find great fishing boats at Tamarindo.

Our Mid Pacific Coast

In the surroundings of Jaco and Manuel Antonio you will find great fishing as well. Really knowledgeable crew and the large and high tech marinas of Manuel Antonio and Los Sueños. Los Sueños is located only 1 hour away from San Jose, so needless to say it has become a magnet for those who come to Costa Rica to fish several days in a row without having to move towns at all.

At our Mid Pacific Coast you will also find: Dorado (Mahi-Mahi), Snapper, Tuna, Marlin, Sailfish, Roosterfish and Wahoo.

Our Southern Pacific Coast

Located much further away from San Jose and at some locations reachable by plane only, our Southern Pacific Coast offers not only great fishing but also an amazing location for enjoying the rainforest. And the small crowds are a huge plus.


At our Southern Pacific Coast you will find the same type of fish as at our Northern and Mid Pacific Coast and you will also find Snook and Spanish Mackerel.

Our Northern Caribbean Coast

The only place in Costa Rica for Tarpon Fishing, the Caribbean Coast is also a great location for finding Snook, Spanish Mackerel, Wahoo and Mahi Mahi. Fishing here is a no frill experience, where man and fish get into a fight with little technology involved.
