Fishing

No longer considered a third world country, Costa Rica is well on its way to being one of the most popular travel destinations in the world. This beautiful country has 2 pristine coastlines that boast incredible fishing opportunities.

If you are planning on adding a fishing trip to your stay, you have come to the right place.  We not only offer one of the best condos on the Los Suenos property, but we now offer our personal boat for fishing excursions.  With an added cost, we can add our boat to your condo package. Contact us today to work up a special package rate.

Costa Rica sportfishing is among the best in the world. In the Central Pacific, sportfishing is abundant because the area has one of the most fertile fishing grounds in the world.

Inshore:

Stay in calmer waters near land for a relaxing day on the water on an inshore fishing trip. Admire the lush coastline while you go for rooster fish, cubera snapper, red snapper, and grouper. On an inshore trip you’ll get the fight of a lifetime with a world-class captain and crew.

Offshore:

Enter deeper waters for the “BIG ONES” – Marlin up to 800 pounds. Arguably the best sailfish fishery on the planet, and in certain months it is not unusual to catch up to 25 a day. Also found are yellowfin tuna, dorado, amberjack, wahoo, and rainbow runners.

FAD’s:

We have all heard the stories of raising 35 Blue Marlin and releasing 20 or more of them in a single day while FAD fishing in Costa Rica… Well they are true! FAD fishing for Marlin is a fantastic sportfishing strategy that essentially guarantees a great day out on deep sea waters.  We are one of the few boats that can put you at the FAD’s in comfort and style.
