If you can get a reservation, I would recommend the Shana Hotel. Great people, food, views and accommodations. Located in a mountain be sure to wear your hiking shoes. The hotel's tour services are great. All tours are picked up at the hotel. There is no need to rent a car. Taxis are $10 a trip and are immediately available with a call. The town of Queops and the Marina is a few miles away. Fishermen need to reserve the fishing charters and hotel months in advance. They fill up quickly especially if there is a tournament. We had 2 days of exceptional fishing with Captain Jeff on the "Bucket List" - Caught: - 1 Blue Marlin (250-300 pounds) + 3 Sailfish + Tuna. We would have won the local tournament, but it ended 2 days earlier - DARN!

Fishing Quepos in February is an awesome experience. I've been lucky enough to fish there several times over the years and look forward to my next trip!! Thoroughly research your boat.....I prefer to fish offshore and zero experience in the inshore fishery there.

Remember that it's called "fishing" and not "catching" for a reason. Some days the fish just aren't there. Understand which months are best for the type of fish you're hoping to catch. If you've got specific questions, contact the respective charter contact for details. All of them seemed very willing to assist and answer any questions.

Try shoreline first because it is more accessible and there are plenty of fish. DEEP SEA: At least 2 persons, spend the dollars for a larger boat, try to avoid turist season.

Go for a full day if you want to catch multiple fish. Don't get too worked up over the little things, they work hard for you. Enjoy the experience come what may Pura Vida.

Make sure your captain has bait lined up before you arrive. It's gonna take time to fish for the big stuff and there is Nooo reason to pay to bait fish.

Tuna were a great fish to go after. The water was amazing and I would have to say some of the best fishing I’ve ever experienced.

Hire a local panga like Hidalgo Sportfishing - it is cheaper and supports the locals. You get great opportunity to fish with the full attention of a local captain who really knows the hot spots.

Understand it is into the rainy season, so the weather and waves can be rough. Still big fish to be caught.

Quepos is a little further down the road than Jaco, Herridura or Los Suenos but worth the trip. See the Monkeys on the beach at the parquet, fish Marina Pez Villa it's Pura Vida!

It was just ok, two charters caught 1 sailfish. Could have done that state side for a lot less. Jaco fish trip was better with 4 sailfish releases.

Come during the dry season if able, but don't be afraid to come during wet season.
