Costa Rica: The Saltwater Angler’s Paradise for sailfish, roosterfish, dorado, wahoo, marlin

Have you ever heard your reel scream? No, I mean really scream. Well, when a 100 + pound Costa Rican sailfish hammers your fly and heads for Hawaii at 65 mph, your reel will be wailing the Hallelujah chorus!

For over 25 years, Costa Rica has been a mecca for traveling saltwater anglers. While best known for sails, Costa Rica offers an incredible diversity of inshore and offshore species on her Pacific Coast including roosterfish, dorado, tunas, wahoo, sailfish, blue, black & striped marlin and a couple of dozen other hard fighting species. Not enough variety? Hop a 30-minute flight to the Caribbean Coast for some world-class tarpon and snook action and you’ll truly understand what makes this tiny country an Angler’s Paradise!

This incredibly beautiful and diverse country also offers lots for non-fishing family members; great hotels, world class beaches, and amazing ecotours. This incredibly friendly and beautiful country is the perfect choice for vacations, which include non-fishing family members.

Randy Wilson of Tamarindo Sportfishing. Tamarindo features beautiful beachfront hotels, great restaurants, tons of non-fishing activities, and the shortest running time to blue water of any Costa Rican port.
