Where Is the Best Fishing in Costa Rica?
Set your sights on a different kind of wet and wild adventure in Costa Rica when you turn your next holiday into a fishing expedition. Costa Rica offers a variety of fishing tours in different regions of the country, but they all have one thing in common — you're going to have a great time.
A 'unique vacation' can be anything you want it to be — including your very own fishing adventure. Costa Rica has a lot to offer you on your next vacation, and while the country is known for its rainforests, beaches, and adventure activities, the nation also hosts some great fishing.
Getting to Costa Rica is relatively easy, and though options exist for reaching the country by land, sea, and air, most travellers will find themselves flying into one of the nation's many airports. Costa Rica entry requirements typically require little more than a valid passport, proof of onward/return travel, and access to $100 USD per month.
The best time to visit Costa Rica depends on your needs — most travellers visit Costa Rica during the dry season, which is mid-November to March. 'Green season' (i.e. the rainy season), runs from May to mid-November, but is a great time to avoid the crowds and save on your trip. For fisherman, the best time to visit may be dry season, green season, or year — it's a question of what you'd like to catch. Your Anywhere Travel Consultant can offer you guidance and secure the answers you need, but to help get you started, here are some of the exciting fishing excursions awaiting you:
