Why People Take Fishing Trips to Costa Rica
Costa Rica is a top travel destination for many reasons – volcanoes, beaches, adventure, rafting, surfing, wildlife – and fishing in Costa Rica is phenomenal!
Many come down for a fishing only vacation, and many other visitors want to head out for one day to try their luck at a prized sport fish catch like sailfish, marlin or rooster fish. Or they’re after a great take-home dinner of red snapper, mahi mahi, tuna, mackerel and more.
Where to Find a Good Fishing Boat
Boats of all sizes and prices can be hired, anywhere from a little uncovered panga for a few hours inshore up to a luxury fishing yacht to head out for full day adventures with lunch, snacks and drinks included.
Fishing high season is typically stronger during green season, however these fish can and are caught throughout the entire year, so there’s no bad time to head out on the water and get fishing!
