Season and weather



Playa Carrillo is unique in that it is not plagued by the strong Papagayo winds that affect the ocean and beaches only 25 miles north of this quiet little port. The winds usually start in December and are over with by April, and while we do have occasional days where it blows, the rule of thumb is calm flat seas.

Costa Rica boasts a year long fishing season, with the peak period being  from December through April.  January and February tend to produce the most significant amount of Marlin. 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.
