According to customer reviews, Sea Star CR - 26' Sea Star I, Costa Rica Extreme Fishing, and Megacatch are some of the most popular fishing charters in Coco, Guanacaste. Full list of top fishing charters in Coco.

Sea Star CR - 26' Sea Star I, Costa Rica Extreme Fishing, and Megacatch all received great reviews from families who booked fishing trips in Coco.

The most popular fish species you can target are Dolphin (Mahi Mahi), Roosterfish, and Sailfish. Top fishing techniques include trolling, bottom fishing, and light tackle. Inshore fishing, offshore fishing, and nearshore fishing are commonly offered by local guides.

Coco Beach, Costa Rica’s fishing scene seems to go from strength to strength. A small fishing village for centuries, the town has developed a real reputation among tourists since the 1990s. However, it’s still retained its charm. You won’t find any big hotel chains or overcrowded beach bars. That’s what makes it the ideal place to discover this magical country.
 
Head to the bay, the nearshore gulf waters, or the deep seas of the Pacific, and you can target some of the most sought-after fish on the planet. Tough-fighting Jacks and exotic Roosterfish rule the roost inshore, while a nearshore adventure will see you go after delicious Snappers, Groupers and Amberjacks.
 
More experienced anglers, however, will relish the chance to hit the deep waters. Here, you’ll find a year-round population of Yellowfin Tuna, with Mahi Mahi passing by in summer. If you thought that was exciting, wait until you experience the Billfish bite! Blue, Black, and Striped Marlin, along with Sailfish are all possible catches on a fishing charter from Coco Beach.
 
Inshore trips can last anywhere from a couple of hours to a full day on the water, with a range of different vessels to choose from. With the reefs just a stone’s throw from shore, you can explore the nearshore waters in just half a day. However, if you’re looking to head offshore, we suggest a full day trip or longer to go after all of the Pacific’s prized creatures.

 

Rules & Regulations

Every angler aboard a charter in Coco Beach will need a license. Sometimes, your captains will offer to buy them for you, but you can also get them online from INCOPESCA. You should also be aware that Roosterfish and Billfish are catch-and-release only, but your professional guide will make sure you stick to all the rules.

January

With plenty of sunshine and no rain, January is a great escape from the winter. You’ll most likely catch inshore species such as Roosterfish, Grouper, and Jack Crevalle.

February

February is typically the windiest month in the area, but you can still target all of the inshore species. When it comes to offshore trips, you’re most likely to catch Mahi Mahi and Marlin.

March

This is the hottest month of the year, so be extra cautious with sun protection. Fishing opportunities are promising as always for inshore species, while the deep seas start heating up, too.

April

It’s still peak season for Grouper and Jack Crevalle, so you may want to focus your attention on the reefs or inshore. However, you could still find some monster creatures offshore, too.

May

This is where it gets interesting for big game fishing! The peak season for Sailfish starts in May, and there’s also more Wahoo and Mahi Mahi out there. Roosterfishing inshore is also hotter than usual.

June

The fishing only gets better in June! This is when you can also catch Yellowfin Tuna and the peak season for Cubera Snapper begins, so wherever you head, you're in for an incredible adventure.

July

The dry season is long gone and heavy rains are on their way, although, not regularly. July is one of the best months for big game fishing, so dodge the showers and head offshore to get your fill.

August

Lots of species reach their peak in August, so make the most of your summer vacation by coming to Coco Beach. You’re very likely to catch Sailfish, Wahoo, and Marlin, while inshore fishing is great, as always.

September

You could say that September is a “peak month” all around. This is when you’ll get the most rain but also the best chances for both big game and inshore fishing, so come and catch 'em all. 

October

As the rainy season stops, big game fishing slows down as well. You can still catch lots of Yellowfin Tuna and Mahi Mahi in the deep, so not all is lost. And, don't forget, inshore and nearshore are both great. 

November

Cubera Snapper and Yellowfin Tuna are still easy to catch and don't forget the main star of the show – Roosterfish. Wherever you head, there's some exciting fishing to be had with some extra special rewards!

December

In winter, the focus switches from big game to inshore fishing. Spend the holidays targeting Grouper, Snapper, Jack Crevalle, and more in the shallow waters as you see out the year in style.

The captain picked up from the beach outside Riu Palace and took us 45 minutes out. We fished for 3 hours and returned to the beach. Drinks snacks and beer was provided. Great time.

We had a fantastic day with the Seastar crew today. Great fishing (five yellowfin tuna!) and great food including some sashimi of our catch right on the boat for lunch. We'll definitely do this again!

Had a wonderful day with Gerald and Luis. Tried for rooster but they weren’t biting likely due to red tide. A lot of the area was explained to us and both Gerald and Luis went out of their way to provide us a fantastic experience. We are looking forward to another try next time we’re in Costa Rica!! We’ll recommend to friends who visit! Thanks again

Boat had a different name (really, who cares). I think the size was the same. Crew was really nice. For cheapest price on this site, it was fine.

We had a wonderful time with Captain Eric and his mate, Josue! Not only did we catch some great fish, but we were also able to see dolphins, sea turtles and humpback whales on our trip! The guys were friendly and worked very hard to make sure we had a great day on the water. Highly recommend!

We did not catch the elusive roosterfish but had a great time anyway. The crew was really friendly and created some awesome cerviche on the spot when we caught a small cero mackerel. The scenery alone is worth the trip.

Hooked a monster black marlin in the first 20 minutes. 4 of us fought him for 4 and a half hours got some great pics and tired arms. The crew coached us, helped us, got great video and pics of the fish. The food and drinks were excellent, even providing specific soft drinks we requested in advance. Gerald, Moses and Ronald were awesome and will request that crew when we book again.

The boat name that showed up did not match the booking info. Very confusing. We were not sure we were on the right boat. Went ahead and stayed on the boat with the crew and had a good time. The crew worked hard the whole time. Ended up with a needle fish, yellow fin tuna and black tuna. Overall a decent trip after a rocky beginning. The crew fished to the end even with rough weather in the area.

We had a great time on the Sea Star. The crew was knowledgeable and very accommodating. They were quick to point out some great sea life such as dolphins, turtles, and manta rays. In the end, we only caught on fish, but it was enough for the three of us to have a wonderful dinner.

We were in Costa Rica for 10 days and this is probably our favorite Excursion out of all of them. They have everything you need to fish and enjoy your trip for a small group or family. They go out of their way to make sure you enjoy your time, communication is awesome and their English is even better. There is even a toilet on board which is super family friendly.

My wife, Evelyn, had her heart set on fishing for Dorado and Capt Ronnie and mate Ever came through. They worked hard on what seemed to be a slow day (based on marine radio traffic) and put us onto 2 nice Dorado that we landed. We had one other bigger Dorado but this one lives to fight another day. The boat was a good fishing vessel and the crew were helpful, attentive, and worked hard to provide a good overall experience.
