Water and Land Activities



Costa Rica's Pacific coast is world famous for its sportfishing. Billfishing is very popular, especially from December to June, with world records broken nearly every year. Numerous outfitters offer well-equipped boats and experienced, bilingual captains to provide both the rookie and the experienced angler excellent offshore fishing for marlin, sailfish, tuna, wahoo, and dorado.

Offshore fishing in the Dominical area is an excellent economic value. The Dominical area also includes the second largest mangrove system on the Pacific coast of Central America, providing some of the best flyfishing in the world. Inshore action includes roosterfish, snook, snapper, and sea bass. Half-day and full-day charters are available from Quepos, Dominical, Uvita, Drake Bay, Cano Island, and Golfito
