    Costa Rica is a short flight away from major hubs in North America and offers some of the best Inshore and offshore chartered sport fishing locations in the world. It's no wonder it hosts important tournaments such as the Offshore World Championship at the Marina Pez Quepos, and several tournaments out of the Los Sueños Marina, in Herradura, both on the Pacific coast. Recreational fishing is a wonderful experience to share with friends or family, an exciting day out on the water.

    • Crevalle Jack
    • Snapper
    • Grouper
    • Mackerel and others will complete your catch among the reefs.

    This is the ideal outing for anyone, recommended for beginners, and families with children.

    Offshore Sportfishing
