Fishing on Costa Rica’s Caribbean Coast

Fishermen heading to Costa Rica’s Caribbean coast have usually got one thing on their mind – tarpon. And with good reason, for this must rate as one of the world’s finest tarpon fisheries. Whether you’re fishing in the Rio Colorado or just off the coast of Tortuguero, fish are here to be caught year-round, with monster specimens making regular appearances. Add in some spectacular snook fishing, along with sport from perennial favourites like jacks, snapper, dorado, tuna and wahoo, and what you have is a very special mixed fishery. Choose from a list of Caribbean Coast fishing lodges and charters below or find your chosen destination on the map…
