Sport Fishing

Northern Costa Rica is truly a freshwater fisherman´s paradise.  A region covered by rivers and lakes, home to a variety of fish such as Tarpon (Sábalo Real) a saltwater fish that lives in the Atlantic Ocean being Costa Rica one of the few places in the world where it can be found in fresh water up to 300 miles away from the sea. There are Snook (Róbalo) which are prized by fishermen due to their combative nature, Rainbow Bass (Guapote) and Garfish (Gaspar) considered a living fossil.

Our guides are native to the area which will help to ensure that both fishing lovers and nature lovers alike can enjoy the best spots for practicing this wonderful sport and for taking in the breathtaking sights of this amazing part of the world.
