Coast to Coast Fishing in Costa Rica!
From the Caribbean to the Pacific, Fish the Best of Costa Rica.
Come see just how diverse and beautiful Costa Rica really is in just one week! You’ll fish on the Caribbean Coast for giant tarpon and snook before flying across the country to the Pacific Coast where you’ll fish for sailfish, marlin, dorado, tuna, snapper, and roosterfish. See an incredible array of wildlife and natural beauty in addition to world class sport fishing. Simply put, this is one of our favorites and an absolute must for any angler!
Your first port of call is the remote and stunning Tortuguero where just getting to your hotel will be an adventure. A panga will take you through deep jungle before the undergrowth gives way to rivers the size of 8 lane highways before you reach your resort. Here you will enjoy a world away from it all where the animals still rule. From turtles to sharks and of course some of the worlds largest Tarpon.
From Tortuguero you will board a short internal flight back to San Jose and then on to Quepos and some of the worlds greatest sportsfishing grounds. Marlin, sailfish, tuna and more await you in the blue waters off shore. You are sure to be exhausted from all the fishing so we have arranged some of the best hotels Costa Rica has for you to relax in.

Day 1—Fly into San Jose where you will take a private transfer to the Grano deo Oro Hotel. This hotel offers rooftop jacuzzi, and excellent dining for your first night in Costa Rica.
Day 2—A private transfer will take you to Tortuguero on the Caribbean Coast. Primarily known as one of the world’s most important sea turtle nesting sites, Tortuguero is also home to some amazing fishing. World record tarpon and snook have been pulled out of these waters – as well as bull sharks and crocodiles! Spend the day relaxing by the pool.
Day 3—You’ll head out for your first day of tarpon fishing with our local guide, Elvin. Better known as Primo, he is hands down one of the best tarpon guides in the entire country. Primo grew up in the area and has been fishing for over 20 years so whether it’s in the fresh water canals or the Caribbean Sea he will put you on the fish.
Day 4—Head out for another full day of tarpon & snook fishing. Depending on what you did the day before you can use this day to fish the freshwater canals for snook, snapper, machaca, rainbow bass, and even alligator gar. If the silver king is your game, head out into the open ocean for another day of tarpon fishing.
Day 5—You will board an early morning flight to return from Tortuguero back to San Jose. Once back in the capital city and main hub, we will fly you one more time out to Quepos on the Pacific Coast for the second half of your fishing vacation. Both flights are only 30 minutes long, but you will change scenery drastically from the isolated Caribbean Coast to the popular and better developed Pacific Coast. This day is used to travel across the country then give you a down day between fishing trips.
Day 6—Now it’s time to see what the Pacific Ocean has to offer us. Today you’ll run off-shore for a full day of hunting blue/black/striped marlin, Pacific sailfish, yellow-fin tuna, wahoo, and the always tasty dorado. Your 32′ sport fisher will leave right out of the new Marina Pez Vela and will get you to the off-shore fishing grounds in less than an hour.
Day 7—Relax and enjoy the beach or let us take you on the canopy zip-line tour!
Day 8—This will be your fourth and final day of fishing, so make it count! If you landed enough billfish the first day and want to try something new you can stay in-shore and go after a variety of different species like snapper, grouper, barracuda, jacks, mackerel, and the prized roosterfish.
Day 9—We will pick you up and take you to the Quepos Airstrip so you can board your domestic flight for a 25 minute flight back to San Jose.
