What kind of marlin can I catch in Costa Rica?
Costa Rican waters are filled with a number of remarkable game fish, including at least three varieties of marlin. Your charter captain knows where to find black marlin, blue marlin and striped marlin. Among the most prized game fish in the world, different species of the massive fish tend to run at different times of the year. December through May are prime times for blue marlin, while the black variety tends to school off Herradura Beach in April and May. Each of these species can weigh in at 600 pounds when fully grown. Striped marlin are somewhat smaller and may be reeled in throughout the year at Herradura Beach near our Los Suenos vacation homes.
Do I need a license to fish in Costa Rica?
Everyone who fishes in Costa Rica needs to have on their person an INCOPESCA license issued by the government. If you book a fishing charter when you reserve your Los Suenos vacation home, be sure to ask whether or not a license is included in the price. Usually, it is. If it is not, you may obtain a fishing license in country or place an online order for a license to fish before you leave home. According to Costa Rican Times, a license to fish costs less than $20 for three days, $30 for a month of fishing, and around $50 for a fishing license that lasts for a period of one year. Kids need a license to fish in Costa Rica, as well. The fishing license laws apply to everyone who fishes, whether they are a tourist or live locally.
