Unusually calm waters and short rides to the fishing grounds cements Los Suenos at the top of the big-game fishing experience. Long known as one of the world’s premier big-game destinations, Los Suenos offers traveling anglers the opportunity to match skills with three heavyweights — blue, black and striped marlin — as well as enormous numbers of big Pacific sailfish. This makes Costa Rica one of the few places in the world where anglers get a real shot at the elusive “grand slam” — catching and releasing three different species of billfish in a single day.

Although the fishing offshore might be hard to top, once you step off the dock Los Suenos goes out of its way to dazzle you with an incredible array of onshore activities as well. Sparkling pools, tennis courts, golf courses, a full-service training center and spa let you choose between a vigorous workout and a relaxing drink by the pool.

For the non-fishing guest, imagine yourself soaring above tree tops on a zip-line, surfing the perfect wave, rushing through the rainforest on an ATV, white water rafting on a powerful river or exploring the jungle. There’s plenty to explore in Costa Rica!

Fishing In Costa Rica

Marlin
Either blue and black species can easily approach 600 pounds and because of the power, size and persistence each fish is one of the most highly prized by all anglers. Marlin can be found from the southern part of Costa Rica in the Golfito area all the way up to the North Pacific Coast.

Top Marlin spots in Costa Rica include Golfito and Drake’s Bay in the South, Los Sueños in the Central Pacific. It is generally agreed that Marlin Fishing is the best in the southern and Central areas during December to April. Black marlin tend to show up most during April and May. The smaller striped marlin is caught year-round.

Sailfish
The sailfish has engraved Costa Rica on every international angler’s wish list. The tournaments are usually during June and July but there is not really a particular season regarding sails. The beautiful fish, spending more time in the air than in the water during the fight is not as powerful as the marlin, but always spectacular. Double and triple hookups are not uncommon.

Los Sueños is considered to the be the center of the action, from December to March, with February being the key month with the highest concentration of sailfish and the possibility of 20 or 30 hookups a day. Year round availability of Sailfish makes it a world leader for anglers.
