Sport Fishing

The Gulf of Papagayo is one of best sportfishing destinations in the world.  It is particularly noted for great numbers of Pacific sailfish, some in excess of 150 pounds; striped marlin to 275 pounds, and blue and black marlin, some approaching 700 pounds. It is also known for record class roosterfish. Sixty to seventy pounders are almost always available. All billfish and roosters are catch and release.
For the really big fish, larger Boats are best for offshore fishing. Usually accommodating 5 to 8 people, they are generally priced around $650 for a half day and $850 for a full day. Depending upon the boat.

The area also boasts a variety of other fish including wahoo, yellowfin tuna, and dorado. Additionally, there are amberjack, snapper, grouper, cabrilla, and jack crevalle.
For these fish, smaller boats (panga's) are best and you don't have to go out very far from shore. Usually accommodating up to 4 or 5 people and generally priced around $275 for a half day and $450 for the full day
