Few tournaments attract as much international attention as the Offshore World Championship. Teams from the four corners of the world are drawn to the highly competitive format in an event that's held amid one of the planet's greatest sport-fishing destinations: Quepos, Costa Rica. With blue, black and striped marlin and plenty of big Pacific sailfish readily abundant, it's an angling paradise. Back ashore, participants can relax in a nation that's known for its laid-back pura vida lifestyle. Marina Pez Vela provides a perfect host location and serves as the epicenter for the week's activities.
