Fishing on Costa Rica’s Pacific Coast

The only problem with fishing on Costa Rica’s Pacific coast is deciding what to do. Either you head offshore and get stuck into some of the world’s best billfishing, or you keep things closer to home and sample the explosive inshore action where roosterfish, jacks, snapper and mackerel will give you some of the best light-tackle sport imaginable. Or you could just do what most people end up doing –both.  Whether you’re heading for the Osa Peninsula in the south, the bright lights of Tamarindo or the rugged coast around the Nicoya Peninsula, you’re never far from the action. Choose from a list of Pacific Coast fishing lodges and charters below or find your chosen destination on the map…
