...that Costa Rica is a fishing Mecca? Costa Rica is home to some of the best sport fishing and deep sea fishing in the world. June - August is the best period for fishing in these parts, even though it's the quietest tourism period!





Caught every month of the year with June, July and August being exceptional, then slowing a bit from October into early January when it picks up again. We catch Blue, Striped and Black Marlin.

Caught throughout the year in our Northern Waters with May through August normally being the top months. They begin to thin out around October/November.

The Yellowfin fishery has exploded since the trawlers were forced to at least 20 miles offshore. We now have a world class, rear-round Tuna Fishery. The yellowfin and some bigeye tuna are often found well inside the Catalina Islands, 30 minutes or less running time from the beach, while schools of 12 to 20 pounders are usually abundant on the outside. You frequently find concentrations of 40 to 60 pound tuna. Several over 100 and 200 pounds are caught every year!

Dorado (Mahi Mahi)


More properly known as green dolphin or Mahi Mahi, these colorful gamesters are most abundant from late May through October when the seasonal rains flood the rivers, carrying out debris that forms trash lines close inshore that they like to lie under. Troll past a floating log and you’ll likely hook a dorado.

The first showing begins about the time the rains start in May, peaking in July and August. Most are caught around the rocky points and islands, but you will pick one up occasionally fishing offshore.

Available all year but plentiful from November through March, likely due to boats in the northernmost area of this region fishing inshore during those windy months - the roosters like the structure of the shoreline and islands, where they’re found as deep as 50 to 60 feet of water.
