We are located in the picturesque beach village of Quepos, 5 miles south of the famous National Park of Manuel Antonio. (click here to see map of Quepos).
Quepos region offers the best inshore and offshore fishing throughout the year. The area is well protected from the prevailing northerly winds and enjoys pretty close to ideal weather although you can expect rain most anytime from May through December, especially in the afternoons.
Billfish are the favored target of most visiting anglers, and they are seldom disappointed from around December through April. To release a half dozen sails and even a marlin or two in a fishing day is common but not unusual to release more than a dozen sailfish a day. There are also Dolphin, Giant Yellofin Tuna, Wahoo, Cubera, Roosterfish, a variety of Snapper, Grouper, Blue Runners, Rainbow Runners, Snook, Jacks, Mackerel and much more. Costa Rica’s sport fishing records speak for themselves: there were more than 70 current IGFA worked record fish from Costa Rica waters including 17 all – tackle marks.
We also offer multi-day fishing trips to the Drake Bay and Caños Island area, overnighting at one of the several lodges centered around Drake Bay. This region is best known for its wahoo, big cubera and roosterfish, but are also tuna, dorado, sails and occasional marlin.
The months of January through mid September are good for Marlin. October is normally the top month for fishing marlin in this area, but action is also good in November and occasional blues and rare black are likely to be found any time of year although they are usually out further than the boats hunting for sailfish are likely to be fishing.
Mid December to the end of April is rated the best season, but the big schools often move in about October and stay longer. A few sails always show among the catch from June through September, mixed with the other species that are found during those months.
Found throughout the year as they are all along the Pacific coast, but most abundant from about May through October. Most are the 8 to 12 ponders, but a dozen or more over 200 pounds and maybe another two dozen in the 100 to 200 pound range are taken every year.

Fishing for this hard-hitting inshore species is little short of incredible with the best spots off the river mouths and the rocky drops-offs. Exceptional at the mouth of the Parrita; Seco Palo between Parrita and Damas; just outside Damas; off the mouth of the Naranjo; around the points at Dominical and throughout the Drake Bay area. Best fishing is from June through early September.
Just coming into its own as a fishery targeted by local operators. Best spots are just off the many river mouths all along the coast, up the Sierpe River and in the big lagoon on the Sierpe. The world record Pacific black shook was taken a couple years ago in July just off the mouth of the Río Naranjo and although it is a new fishery, the best months seem to be from July through November during the heavy rain season.
Snapper have been caught in the area year round. The most popular is the Cubera Snapper.
