Costa Rica fishing, corporate retreats, and family vacation packages

The fishing in Costa Rica is widely renowned as some of the best in the world, so if you are planning a vacation and you enjoy fishing, you’re in for a treat.

One of the reasons why Costa Rica sportfishing is so great is because of the country’s proximity to the fertile blue water that offers a plethora of fantastic and a variety of species.  

Catch fish like sailfish, snook, red snapper, amberjack, roosterfish, yellow fin tuna, wahoo, dorado, grouper, and rainbow runner all day long as you soak in the sun and relax on a private  fishing boat.

But perhaps the best catch of all during your Costa Rica vacation will be the mighty marlin!  Known to frequent the waters of Costa Rica, marlin weigh up to 1000+ pounds! These giant fish provide a truly unforgettable fishing experience, as there’s nothing quite like battling a marlin as you reel it in. The best time to catch marlin is from December to April, but they can be caught at any time of the year.

Chances are you’ll have a great shot at catching a marlin anytime you head out of the bay, but if not, the sailfish is also a worthy adversary and very common here. While not as feisty as the marlin, the sailfish provide quite a spectacle as they soar through the air, shimmering and reflecting in the light as the sun catches the large sails upon their backs from which they get their name. Prime Sailfish season is from December to March, with the prime time to fish for them being in February, but they can be caught year round here.
