The waters of Costa Rica are teeming with marine life. Even with Costa Rica charter fishing these waters have never been over fished like many of the fishing hot spots inside the United States. That is one of the many reasons Costa Rica fishing charters make so many great catches nearly year round.

Guanacaste Costa Rica Fishing is really great year round but peaks between the months of December to May. From the north end of Costa Rica near Tamarindo to the south end near the Osa Peninisula you will find fishing charters that target a wide variety of big game marine creatures.

For your Costa Rica charter fishing trip you can expect to go after and catch a long list of different and interesting species. From catching "the man in the blue suit", which is slang for a blue marlin that you may catch offshore to fishing inshore where you may catch a giant snapper or grouper.

A small list of the most popular species the Costa Rica fishing charters will target include ::

  • Blue Marlin :: "The Man in the Blue Suit"
  • Striped Marlin :: Much rarer but certainly a possiblity.
  • Sailfish :: Some over 100 pounds. A trophy to be proud of for sure.
  • Wahoo :: A beautiful long slender fish.
  • Yellowfin Tuna :: Like trying to catch a live torpedo.
  • Grouper :: A big lunker that swims around the bottom or on a wreck.
  • Roosterfish :: Fishing in Costa Rica for roosterfish is a favorite among visiting anglers!
  • Cubera Snapper :: Giant version of a red snapper
  • Red Snapper :: Fun to catch, better to eat.

These fish and many others are available and could be a likely catch on your next Costa Rica charter fishing excursion. Some are more available than others depending on the exact time of year but no matter when you visit Costa Rica your chances of catching an exciting big game sportfish that you can tell all your buddies back home about are very high.
