Enjoy fishing Lake Arenal! This fantastic freshwater fishing in one of the most scenic and surreal settings you may ever be in. This lake is the largest in Costa Rica and is only dwarfed by the imposing Arenal Volcano that stands over it.

Lake Arenal is Costa Rica’s largest – a total area of 33 sq. miles (85.5 square km) – and best known lake. It’s surrounded by incredible scenery – to the east you’ll see the towering Arenal Volcano. Also, rolling hills embrace the entire body of water. There are a lot of activities you can do at this fascinating spot. Boat tours, kayaking, sailboarding and windsurfing are among them. Fishing is superb here.

You will fish on a custom 20-foot bass boat for machaca, mojarra, tilapia, and the tough rainbow bass. Rainbow bass, a member of the cichlid family, are especially prolific in the lake’s waters. Their tasty white meat and feisty nature make them a challenge – and a delight – to catch.
