Fishing in Guanacaste, Costa Rica is something every angler should do once in a lifetime – especially before the secret gets out. The province is less developed than some other coastal regions, which actually makes for better fishing action. Come and get a real taste of Costa Rica and the “Pura Vida” lifestyle with some of the best game fish on the planet.
 
Three kinds of Marlin and Pacific Sailfish top the list, but they also rub shoulders with Yellowfin Tuna, Wahoo, Mahi Mahi, and many more. Hit the reefs, and it’s all about table fare. Snappers, Groupers, Mackerel, Pompano, and Rainbow Runner are all on offer, so try bottom fishing in the turquoise waters and head back to shore with a real treat. 
 
But that’s not where it ends! Inshore fishing is also incredible for catch-and-release anglers. Snook, Roosterfish, and Jack Crevalle are all available in the shallows, with fly fishing offering a particularly rewarding experience. 
 
Inshore and reef fishing trips can last as little as four hours, with more keen fishermen being able to take advantage of longer trips. To make the most of the big game bite, you’ll want to spend at least a full day on the water, with some charters offering multi-day trips.
 
The larger sportfishing vessels center around the province’s main marina – Marina Papagayo. However, the smaller towns further south offer pangas and center consoles that will give you a more authentic Costa Rican experience.
 

Reglas & Regulaciones

When you come fishing in Guanacaste, you’ll need to get a license. They cost around $15 from INCOPESCA, and can be bought online. You should also be aware that circle hooks must be used for targeting Roosterfish and Billfish, but your professional captain will make sure you fish within the law.

Enero

High winds can ruin the deep sea fun in northern Guanacaste, while the south enjoys peak Billfish season. Wherever you are, you can find giant Snook and Roosterfish in the shallows.

Febrero

If you can’t face the bad weather and bitter cold February brings, head to Guanacaste for 90-degree heat without a cloud in sight. You’ll also find big Snook and Roosterfish, as well as Marlin in the south.

Marzo

The Snook bite drops off in March, but Roosterfish are still demolishing baits and denting lures in the shallows. Offshore, the southern Blue Marlin season goes out with a bang.

Abril

The wind dies down in the north and you can finally get offshore in search of Marlin, Sailfish, Wahoo, Mahi Mahi, and Tuna. Inshore, things are quietening down, but you can still find big Jacks.

Mayo

Billfish season really gets going in the north, with Black Marlin and Sailfish in huge numbers. The rains also pick up in May and getting offshore can be a good way to beat the humidity.

Junio

June is one of the wettest months of the year in Guanacaste but that won’t put out the fire on the Marlin trips in the north. All the rain washes a ton of FADs into the sea, which makes it perfect for Mahi fishing.

Julio

Locals celebrate Guanacaste’s annexation to Costa Rica with parades and shows. Blue Marlin peak in the north, joining Blacks, Stripes, and Sails for some of the best Billfishing you’ll see all year. 

Agosto

The Presidential Flamingo Fishing Rodeo draws competitive anglers to Playa Flamingo as everyone else rushes offshore for amazing Yellowfin Tuna fishing. The reefs are full of fish by August.

Septiembre

FADs and reefs continue to produce huge, tasty fish throughout September. You can find big game pelagics just a stone’s throw from shore this time of year if you don’t mind getting wet.

Octubre

The rain shows no sign of stopping in October and high humidity can sap your strength. Wade fishing for Snook can be a great way to keep cool. Well, you’re going to get wet either way!

Noviembre

Winds pick up in the north, but so do the Snook and Roosterfish. In the south, Blue Marlin start their winter season as Yellowfin Tuna calm down and the reef fishing begins to drop off.

Diciembre

Monster Snook and Roosterfish make for endless fun inshore in December. Down south, Blue Marlin fight hard while the reefs serve up a festive feast all along the coastline.

Feb. is not the best fishing month. Never the less we caught 3 nice mahi mahi .But just as exciting for the women aboard were the hundreds of dolphins & jumping stingrays , with many turtles & flying fish. All in all it was a great time.

February fishing is not one of the best fishing months of the year. However, we were in Playa Flamingo for 11 days and went on 3 fishing trips and had really great luck for all 3. February for us turned out great! We brought our own surf poles, but had no luck. I recommend fishing with a local guide.

pay a little more if you want more variety and gamers. we went for Dorado (mahi mahi) and tuna. we hit Dorado during our trip and were happy because all 6 of us caught fish! it's one of the only charters I could find in this price range for 5 hours. most others were 4 hours for the same price. crew made it effortless. highly recommend! Also saw a lot of Dolphins and Leatherback Sea Turtles as an added bonus!

If you are staying at Dreams Las Mareas or anywhere in the area, you absolutely need to take a trip on the Barbara. The guys were absolutely great and we had so much fun with them. We went fishing and caught some great fish. We also saw some beautiful rare sea turtles. At the end we spent a bit of time snorkeling. Couldn't have asked for better guides. These guys absolutely know what they are doing and will try their best to give you some unforgettable memories.

Our family of 5 had so much fun on the Sea Hunter 1 with Victor and Byron. We caught tuna, yellowtail jack, pompano, and blue runner. We are beginners, so they were patient with us and showed us different techniques for catching the fish. Byron cleaned and filleted our fish and we were able to take it to a nearby restaurant to cook. We highly recommend a fishing trip with Sea Hunter 1!

Priceless experience w with my son and I. Miguel the mate was EXTREMELY attentive and supportive for my 13 y.o. son. He made us our food, grabbed us drinks, did all the work on the deck. We caught the most beautiful Yellow-Fins and at the end, he switched tackle and we landed what looked like a 6-7 foot Sailfish but it cut the line just before Miguel could gaff it. Just priceless. Thank you Captain Werner & Miguel!!!

The crew were great with our family of 6 and provided great snacks and beverages to keep my kids occupied when things slowed. Not my favorite type of fishing (trolling) but I’m no expert in ocean fishing. I was hoping for a rooster but no luck there. We all caught something and I made some excellent tuna steaks after that the crew filleted up. Even had some as sashimi on the boat.

My father and I had two amazing days of fishing with Captain Gerald! We caught Mahi, 6-7 nice Yellowfin Tunas (ranging from 25-40lb), Sailfish, among other species. Gerald instantly cleaned the fish and packed some fillets for us to have them cooked at El Chiringuito restaurant. He worked non stop to make sure we caught the fish we wanted. The owners Roy and Louise are also very gentle and kind people. Overall, it was a fantastic experience! Highly recommended! Hope to come back soon!

Had an absolutely great time with Captain Luis and Sandy. They clearly take a lot of pride of ownership in their boat. We started slow, but ended up catching two sailfish. One was a monster!!! When things were slow Captain Luis added additional lures and other things to get the fish biting. It clearly worked.

I went with my family for a 3/4 day trip. Meeting up went smoothly and we were on our way. The crew was friendly and knowledgeable, lunch was pretty basic, but we didn't go for the food. We hooked a marlin, but my boys weren't able to pull it in. They enjoyed the experience though and we all were happy. I pulled in a Mahi Mahi and they cleaned it, giving us 2 filets for dinner which were great. We didn't get many other bites, but overall had a great time.
