The Tequila Fish

If you’re looking for your next unforgettable fishing adventure, head to Coco, Costa Rica and book a trip with The Tequila Fish. Owned and operated by an American captain who fell in love with the natural beauty and the lovely people of the area, you’re guaranteed to experience these bountiful fisheries from a unique perspective.

The Tequila Fish treats their clients like family members and they can’t wait to show you the untouched nature and the richness of fish species this area has to offer. To them, fishing is more than just catching – it’s about having fun and bonding with your friends and family.

Their 24’ Rampage Express offshore sportfishing yacht can accommodate parties of up to 11 anglers fishing in full comfort and style. Powered by twin 430 HP Cummins QSB 5.9 engines, this fishing machine features outriggers, downriggers, a flybridge, a fighting chair, and top-notch fishing gear.

Apart from being perfectly equipped for sportfishing, it will provide you with a luxurious cruising experience thanks to the onboard bathroom, a full galley, A/C, and even a multimedia system.

And what about the species you’ll be targeting? Sailfish, Marlin, Roosterfish, Mahi, Wahoo, and many other game species are on the menu throughout the year – you just have to hunt them down and reel them in. Please note that all Billfish and Roosterfish are strictly catch and release.

You’ll get to keep all other species and the crew will clean and fillet the fish for you after the trip. The charter will take care of all the fishing gear, live bait, and lures, as well as delicious snacks and drinks. On full-day trips, you’ll even be provided with lunch – usually, gourmet sandwiches prepared in a local pastry shop.

Pickups from nearby locations are included in the price with more distant locations also available for an additional fee.

Ready for your epic Costa Rican adventure? The Tequila Fish can’t wait to have you on board!

The owner and the operator of The Tequila Fish moved to Costa Rica after starting and running a couple of companies in Texas. He fell in love with fishing here and the wonderful people he works with. And Mahi Mahi...to him, there's nothing better than getting a 50 lb bull on the end of the line. And they taste great too.
