Jaco Fishing

The locals claim there are more record-sized fish caught in Jaco and weighed in at the notorious Los Suenos marina each year, than in any other fishery in Central America. Numbers and various IGFA records aside, Jaco-Los Suenos area exemplifies the best in Costa Rica sportfishing, offering a unique blend of inshore and offshore hotspots that has so far proven irresistible to visiting anglers worldwide. Nowhere on the planet will you find better Roosterfishing than in these very waters, with trophy Billfish and countless Tuna shoals waiting just a couple of miles further offshore. Feel like proving the locals right?
