Taking time to unwind, relax, and enjoy the best Costa Rica has to offer is always a good idea. If you happen to be an angling enthusiast heading this way, setting your sights on time well-spent at Los Suenos Marina is sure to inspire. This prime fishing destination is one of the country’s top choices among those who love to cast a line with good reason. The following are just a few of the many reasons why you’ll want to be sure to spend as much time as possible fishing in Costa Rica. 

The Best Places To Go Fishing in Costa Rica

When it comes to options, luxury, and easy access to the water, the Los Suenos Resort Marina has everything anglers could want and then more! The Los Suenos Marina is government-sanctioned and hosts upward of 200 wet slips as well as 100 dry slips on-site. Anglers will also enjoy seamless access to helpful full-time staff, a fuel dock, and dry storage spaces that can easily accommodate vessels up to 35 feet long. Wet slips here typically range from 30 to 180 feet. The marina plays host to vessels of all types from yachts to luxury sport fishing boats. The full-service approach to customer and vessel care at the marina is unsurpassed and its location near the lush and fertile fishing grounds of the Pacific Coast makes it a top destination for fishing enthusiasts from across the map.  

Many anglers head to the Los Suenos Marina to take advantage of a picture-perfect departure point for fishing tours, sport fishing excursions, and water sports alike. For a tranquil, customized, and exciting day on the water, guests can always take advantage of the small fishing charters that leave from the marina practically daily! These charters can accommodate around 3 to 5 people at a time and include a knowledgeable captain, fishing gear, and even beverages and lunch options onboard. There are also opportunities for anglers to get out and participate in deep-sea excursions either independently or as part of a chartered fishing experience. Making the Los Suenos Marina even more convenient is the fact that fishing licenses can be purchased right on-site to ensure anglers are always in compliance with fishing regulations. A fishing license purchased at the marina is typically valid for a month or a year depending on the type purchased.  

What You Can Catch Around the Marina

It’s fair to say that many anglers head to Los Suenos Marina to join up with charters that are focused on reeling in Billfish. In fact, Los Suenos has earned the title of Billfish Capital of the World with good reason! The combination of calm waters and stunning weather brings Billfish in abundance which means a notoriously lucrative haul for anglers. Overall, Costa Rica is a haven of opportunity for sport fishing thanks to the variety of species that thrive within the surrounding waters, and Los Suenos Marina is no exception to that rule. It’s possible for those looking forward to casting a line in this area to successfully find marlin, red snapper, yellow fin tuna, grouper, wahoo, dorado, rainbow runner, and sailfish alike. High offshore sportfishing season in this area is often referred to as Green Season and occurs towards the end of May and runs through July. It’s a time of year when anglers who set their sights on Los Suenos Marina can count on finding plenty of Mahi Mahi biting! If you reel in a Yellow Fin during Green Season around the marina, you’re likely to find you’ll be pulling in catches that range from 40 to 80 pounds each. During this time of year, trolling early in the morning out of the marina is an idyllic approach for those who are looking to reel in tripletails, runners, jacks, and bonitos too.  

Easy Access Included

No matter when you have time to enjoy a well-deserved getaway to Costa Rica, Los Suenos Marina is easy to access thanks to its proximity to the country’s major airports. Located in Herradura Beach on the central Pacific Coast, the marina enjoys a place just 10 minutes from Jaco and no more than an hour-and-15-minute drive from Juan Santamaria International Airport (SJO). This is the airport that serves the most international flights in and out of Costa Rica daily. Those who fly into SJO will travel 5 miles west and take the exit for Orotina and Jaco. Next, make your way to Highway 27 towards Caldera and follow it for around 17 miles. You’ll exit at Jaco and drive for 21 miles to Herradura until you see signs for Herradura Road leading to Los Suenos.
