Let It Be Fishing Tours

Let It Be Fishing Tours offers a mix of trips making the most of the diverse waters of the Gulf of Nicoya. Stay in the shallows for some big battles in shallow water. Otherwise, head out on a full day trip to take on the epic list of big game species that call the area home. You really couldn’t ask for a better place to fish!

And the same is true of Captain Goran Barbado’s custom-built center console, the “Let It Be.” This sturdy vessel can carry four anglers with ease, getting you and your group all fishing at once to make sure everyone has a great time. Her 250 HP Yamaha engine will rocket you offshore in no time, where her outriggers will throw your lines far and wide to draw in the best fish around.

And this is more than just some stripped-back sportfishing platform. The boat has ample shade to keep you cool in the tropical heat. She also has a portable head for extra convenience on longer trips. Her high sides also make her very child-friendly.

Costa Rica’s A-list gamefish need no introduction, with everything from Marlin and Sailfish to Snook and Roosterfish growing to enormous sizes here. You will be given quality tackle to take on these monsters, with the option to troll and bottom fish to get the most out of your day.

All Let It Be Fishing Tours trips come with water, beer, sodas, and everything you will need for the fishing itself. On full day trips, you will also be given a tasty lunch to keep your strength up. Just bring your camera, sun protection, and your valid Costa Rican fishing license and get ready for a day of adventure!
