Welcome to our Papagayo fishing trips page and we are delighted you stopped by. Our mission is to assist you to make the best decision possible for your planned excursion to the beautiful Gulf of Papagayo fishing grounds. This area is the perfect destination to enjoy year-round fishing thanks to the incredible climate and the abundant marine life in these fish-rich pastures. Getting here could not be easier, which means you can start to enjoy Papagayo sport fishing the moment you disembark from your flight at Daniel Oduber Quirós International Airport. This is to the west of the city of Liberia in Guanacaste Province, in the Pacific Northwest coastal area of Costa Rica. It is one of four international airports serving Costa Rica, and this one is a mere 30-minute drive from the coast of action fishing. You came to enjoy some serious fishing, and that is precisely what we are going to make happen.
Peninsula Papagayo Fishing Adventures
The Roosterfish is arguably the most prolific species found in the rich fishing grounds in this area and hooking one is not as straightforward as it may seem. Roosterfish adults weigh about the same as an average-sized sailfish, and they will offer an almighty struggle once hooked. The trophy-rated Roosters are found in the waters around the Catalinas islets and Bat Island in the Gulf of Papagayo and can easily weigh in from around 40 to 80 pounds. Many other species of fish swim these waters with the likes of Snapper, Dorado, Jacks, Snook and even Sailfish quite common visitors.
Marina Papagayo – East of Eden
Our Papagayo fishing charter service operates from either the Marina Papagayo at the northern end of Culebra Bay with its incredible sapphire blue waters or from Playa Ocotal. The Andaz Peninsula Papagayo Resort offers luxury accommodations close to the Marina. The magnificent Four Seasons Gulf Club commands spectacular views of both ocean and bay a few miles to the south around the Peninsula de Papagayo – luxury accommodation available. Visitors flock here in numbers to try their hand at Papagayo sportfishing and to frolic in some of the best surfing beaches found anywhere. This secluded hideaway on Costa Rica’s North Pacific coast is breathtakingly beautiful and ranks as one of the world’s best tropical playgrounds. It is also a sanctuary full of discovery and exciting new experiences. This is a place to unlock the secrets of nature with lush flora and fauna including colorful parrots called Papagayo (hence the name), or you can develop your paddling skills on the open waters. Top of the “To Do” list has to be the Papagayo Costa Rica fishing charters experience.
