Costa Rica has some of the best Sport Fishing in the world. The Pacific side has incredible fishing for Sailfish, Marlin, Dorado, Tuna, Wahoo, Roosterfish, Snapper, and more. The Caribbean side and Northern regions of Costa Rica are famous for big Tarpon and big Snook

Costa Rica Fishing Report is located in Jaco Beach on the Central Pacific Coast. The majority of our charter boats and vacation rentals are located in the Los Suenos Resort, Jaco Beach, Hermosa Beach, Quepos & Manuel Antonio area.

We also have a growing list of quality charter boats and vacation rentals available if you are traveling to Flamingo Beach, Tamarindo, Samara, Carillo, Drake Bay, Mata Palo, Puerto Jimenez and Golfito.

If you want BIG Tarpon and BIG Snook we fish with the best Tarpon fishing lodges in Barra del Colorado, Rio Colorado, Tortugero, Rio Parisima., Rio Frio, Cano Negro, Lake Nicragua and the San Juan River.

Give us a call or send us an e-mail if you have any questions about charter boats and vacation rentals or if you need a “live” fishing report.
