Country and climate

If you are looking for flat, smooth waters on almost a daily bases, than Costa Rica’s idyllically calm deep blue waters are for you. While the boats from Puerto Carrillo, Samara and Garza fish glass like waters the whole year, be aware that the boats north of us, in Flamingo and Tamarindo are often relocating there operations further south or are enduring long runs to get out of the relentless winds that plague the area north of Punta Guiones from November through April.



Costa Rica has two seasons, a wet and a dry one. As we are centered here on the Nicoya Peninsula in the Province of Guanacaste, the wet season (from May through October) is not as severe as it is in the south near Quepos or Golfito. The dry season is not quite as dusty as it is further north toward Flamingo and Ocotal, all popular fishing destinations at the right time of the year.

The rains that we do receive are normally in the morning and evenings, and for the most part light in nature and do not last long. The wonderful thing about these showers is that suddenly, Guanacaste bursts into life, the lush green colors returning almost overnight with the first rains.

Guanacaste, particularly the area of Nosara, Garza, Playa Carrillo maintains its lush green tropical setting until march and April, when it does get dryer, but never completely brown as it does further north. This is all good news for those wanting to escape the extreme cold, rain and snow in the in the northern United States and Canada from December through February. Our fishery is good year round, we see all the target species Sailfish, blue marlin, black marlin, stripe marlin, Mahi Mahi (dorado) yellowfin tuna and wahoo at one time or the other, but we are best known as a billfish destination.
