Country and climate

Costa Rica’s prolific blue waters lay claim to over 84 different IGFA (international game fish association) records, 18 of them for billfish alone.

The glassy smooth water makes even those most prone to feeling queasy want to stay out all day.  Flat calm waters are the rule, not the exception.



Typically Costa Rica  has a wet season and a dry season. The wet season starts around the end of May and continues through the month of October.
Of all the regions in Costa Rica, Guanacaste, has the best climate during the wet season. The   down pours or sprinkles are more refreshing than anything else.
The rains, which normally occur in the morning or late afternoon are short in duration for the most part, and turn this slice of the country into a beautiful lush tropical setting.  September and October seem to be the months that produce the most rain.
The dry season soon follows, normally seeing the last of the rains by the end of November.

Our peak fishing coincides nicely with those wishing to escape the cold in the U.S. and Canada at this time of the year.  We catch sailfish, marlin, mahi mahi, (dorado), yellowfin tuna, and wahoo year round, sometimes in amazing numbers.  Yellowfin pushing the two hundred lb mark are not unusually, although most of our fish are under a 100 lbs.  We are primarily a billfish destination as the thousands of anglers that flock to Costa Rica will attest to.
