Additional Information

Costa Rica is a country in South America that is bordered on both sides by oceans, with the Pacific on the west and the Caribbean on the east. This country is rich with wildlife, with a quarter of its total land mass being made up by un-spoilt rainforests you will find animals such as Spider monkeys and many different birds on your doorstep.

The astonishing blue water fishing is the main attraction to Costa Rica with boats leaving the ports every day and heading out onto the open seas to do battle with some truly monstrous apex predators.

Our most popular destination in Costa Rica is Crocodile Bay. The stunning eco-resort of Crocodile Bay is set amongst the lush Costa Rican rainforest and is known around the world for its world-class big game fishing. The boats we use are fully equipped with all of the top branded fishing equipment which is free to use. You will also find large cooler boxes full of cold drinks of your choice plus a huge variety of food freshly prepared at the hotel and loaded on to the boats every day. Another reason why this destination is so popular is the huge array of eco tours on offer meaning it is very family friendly, one day you could be out fishing chasing down striking billfish and the next trekking through the amazing rainforest located a short drive away.

If you love Tarpon fishing, the will love the fishing within the local estuaries. There are many places you can visit in Costa Rica to sample incredible Tarpon fishing such as Silver King Lodge. Silver King Lodge is located in a lush tropical environment on the banks of the Rio Colorado on the northeast coast of Costa Rica. This daily food chain here is the source to hundreds of fish with the Tarpon being at the top of the chain. The gathering of baitfish is the reason why the Tarpon reach such huge sizes, on every trip there is the opportunity of hooking fish between 120lb to 200lb. 

Another popular destination for Tarpon is Tarpon Lodge.  The fishery consists of a vast system of freshwater rivers, creeks, and flooded lagoons surrounded by rainforest and swampland. You can expect to fish from simple but efficient river pangas, with 2 anglers per boat taking turns on the bow. Since the environment is dynamic, fishing situations can be varied, ranging from sight casting and blind casting.
