Fishing for Sailfish, Marlin, Tuna, Dorado – Saltwater, Offshore

Tamarindo offers anglers the best of World Class sport fishing! Located on the Pacific coast of Costa Rica approximately one hour from the Daniel Oduber International Airport just outside

Liberia, Tamarindo is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the Guanacaste Province. Tamarindo offers guests a wide variety of lodging, dining, tours and some of the prettiest beaches in the country.

The fish are never far away from Tamarindo. Sport fishing boats never run more than an hour (usually only 30-40 minutes) to look for bill fish. You spend your day catching fish, not chasing them!

The waters here are world famous for year-round sport fishing. While each year may be slightly different, the catch rate for all game fish (Sailfish, Blue, Black and Striped Marlin, Yellowfin Tuna, Dorado, Wahoo, Roosterfish, Snapper) is fairly consistent all months of the year. There are no specific seasons here.

Traditionally, April through September are excellent for Sails, Marlin, Tuna and Dolphin. The seas are calm and it may rain in the afternoon. October through December sees the transition from rainy season to dry season here and we catch a variety of species, including billfish. December through March are often windy so boats run up to an hour to the south to get to the good fishing out of the wind. Marlin and large Yellowfin Tuna are plentiful then, as well as Sailfish and dorado.

Fishing International is pleased to offer accomodations at two of Tamarindo’s loveliest resort destinations. The Tamarindo Vista Villas offers 17 lovely rooms and 16 spacious, luxuriously appointed villas. Surrounded by lush tropical gardens, the four-star Tamarindo Diria Beach & Golf Resort offers many superb oceanview rooms and frontage to the white sandy Tamarindo beach.

So, let Fishing International help you select the right package for you. We are sure this will be a fishing experience in Tamarindo that you won’t soon forget!
