Costa Rica, one of the best destinations in the world to practice sport fishing

22 March, 2018

With 1,016 km of coastline, 1,016 km on the Pacific Coast and 212 km on the Caribbean Sea coast, it is no wonder that Costa Rica is a jewel in regards to beaches and water sports, and in this same sense, sport fishing finds in this country one of the hottest and best worldwide known fishing spots.

Both coasts offer amazing scenarios to practice sport fishing; however, the Pacific Coast is the clear winner between both coasts, with more than 40 world records in this sport. Fishermen from around the world arrive to Costa Rica’s Pacific Coast in search of marlin, sailfish and golden fish, all abundant in these waters.

Fishing in the Pacific can be performed throughout the year, although in general terms, the lowest months range from September to November.

Quepos: a destination whipping sport fishing records

Among the best places in the country to practice sport fishing are Playa Herradura, North of Jaco and Quepos, just a couple of hours away from San José by road, and a few minutes away in any of the multiple commercial flights arriving into the area.

In the coastline of Quepos you will find many fish that are considered first class catches, including blue, black, and grated marlin, sailfish, snapper, lemon fish, wahoo, golden fish, yellow fin, bigeye and rooster fish; this makes this place, without a doubt, a trophy destination for sport fishing and a compulsory stopping point for both amateurs and professional fishermen. There are also diversity of services and fishing tours available for the whole family.

If you are planning your next vacation, we invite you to stay with us at the Best Western Hotel & Casino Kamuk  and take advantage of your stay to practice this exciting sport in the best place to do so: Quepos, Costa Rica
