Best Time for Deep Sea Charter Fishing at Los Sueños Resort in Costa Rica


Charter Fishing at Los Sueños – Anytime professional and leisure sport fishermen trade stories of Costa Rica fishing trips, the launch point most discussed is Los Sueños Resort and Marina. In the early 90’s the Los Sueños Resort and Marina started to be developed in Playa Herradura (Horseshoe Beach/Bay) that combined the best in residential and vacation homes, along with Costa Rica’s first government sanctioned marina.

The vacation and residential properties are sculpted into the tropical hillside above the first-class marina overlooking the blue Pacific water of the bay, making this a deep sea fishing paradise. Its location design and access to the best fishery in the western hemisphere attract thousands of anglers every year. One of the most frequent question we get here at Go Fish Costa Rica is; when is the best time for sport fishing out of Los Sueños Marina?

Whether you are looking for Los Sueños villas and condos or have your vacation rental located in the nearby party town in Jaco Beach, you will find that the fishing off this part of the Costa Rica coast is good all year round for various species both in-shore and off-shore, but in general experienced anglers tend to be hunting for sailfish and marlin.

Best Times for Bill Fishing

Many people will say that the absolute high peak season for bill fishing out of Los Sueños marina is January, February March and April, but with that said because of migration routes along the north and central Pacific coast there are also spikes in June and July for sailfish and marlin. These months also produce excellent dorado and tuna catches.

So planning a Costa Rica fishing trip from January to April, is your best opportunity for large numbers of marlin and sailfish including the famous black marlin. Sailfish reports of 10+ hookups per day are not unusual in March. The Striped Marlin is prolific any time of the year of Los Sueños, and while the striped marlin is a smaller of the species, it certainly makes up for in tenacity.

For billfish, catch and release is the standard rule in Costa Rica sport fishing, but the high numbers of dorado and tuna keeps the Los Sueños condos well booked from May through November.

Sportfishing enthusiasts will find their time at Los Sueños well worth it throughout the year with many species of fish to hook into.
