Fishing trip

The Southern Caribbean is characterized by the largest reef system in Costa Rica, with deep water 2-4 miles offshore. This provides unique experiences for fishing for a variety of species using a variety of techniques.

The sea offers seasonal and yearlong catch including Spanish Mackerel, King Mackerel, Barracuda, Tarpon, and several species of Snapper and Jacks, plus whatever the current may bring in - like Tuna and Wahoo. Weather and sea permitting, jump in for snorkeling and lobster!

If renting a boat for a half or a full day, maximize your experience in the 20' center console walk-around boat equipped with a 150 hp Evinrude, depth finder, GPS, CB radio and live bait well. Enjoy the comfort and safety provided by shade awning and PFDs. All rods, reels, bait, lures, mask and fins, and ice chests provided on the boat. Half day tours include cold drinks and snacks, full-day tours also include lunch, hopefully your catch cooked on an isolated beach!

If you lik toe fish as the locals do, then we offer the artisanal fishing which is with a traditiona Panga style boat. You will get the chance to fish Mackerel, Snapper or Jack fish or maybe even a Tuna. Our local Captain knows all the best spots and will prepare you a delicious lunch with your catch of the day.
