Fishing in Los Sueños

The “Fishing Capital of Costa Rica” should need no introduction. Playa Herradura is home to luxury resorts, stunning beaches, and one of the biggest recreational fishing marinas in Central America – Los Sueños. Fishing charters here are the things that dreams are made of. Explore the Herradura Bay and the deep waters of the Pacific aboard a luxury vessel, as you go after some of the world’s most-prized fish. 
 
Closer to shore, you’ll find dazzling and delicious creatures. Roosterfish, Jacks, Groupers, Snappers, and many more are sure to keep you entertained, with the chance of landing a tasty treat, too. Offshore, though, is where the serious action takes place. Blue, Black, and Striped Marlin call these waters home, along with Sailfish, so there’s always the chance of a Billfish. Meanwhile, Mahi Mahi and Yellowfin Tuna add to the long list of table fare!
 
With such a range of fishing grounds and fish on offer, it’s no surprise that there’s a Los Sueños fishing charter to cater to your needs. Beginners and families can take an easy half day trip to learn the ropes and see the sights. However, to get offshore you’ll need at least a full day. The more experienced among you should take advantage of this chance to test your skills against some of the biggest creatures out there!
 
Los Sueños marina is a part of the five-star complex that makes Playa Herradura such a popular vacation spot. Wander down from your condo, apartment, or hotel room, and your captain will be waiting.
 

Rules & Regulations

Every angler on a fishing charter will need a Costa Rica fishing license. Some captains may provide these for you but you can also get yours online from INCOPESCA. Your professional guide will also make sure that you stick to all legal limits.

What anglers said about fishing in Los Sueños

You should wear protective clothing. We got burnt up pretty good would wear long sleeves, pants and hat to shade face, neck and plenty of sunscreen. If you don't want to be embarrassed tack on 20% of trip price (what you pay captain) for tip.

Bring some cash (American dollars are fine) to provide tips to the captains taking you out to the fishing boat, and as a tip to the deck hands. Make sure to bring sunscreen and a buff to protect your face/ears, it's very sunny!

The water taxis expect tips. I did $20 1 way then $10 on the way back. $10 each way is more than fair in my opinion for such a short ride.

This is a great boat for experienced and new fisherman. Stable and fast. Plenty of room on board. Capt. had some great music while traveling which helps make a good day. David was great deck hand, kept all the gear and landed fish in order. Helpful with landing this fish, but gave us plenty of latitude to do what we where comfortable with handling the rods.

Use Gitana! Tell them you're a novice and ask to practice proper use of the reel beforehand. It is a bit of an art to keep a large fish in the hook.

We live in Florida so we go on a lot of fishing tours. This one was by far the best one we have ever been on. We caught a rooster fish that was 70 pounds a sea bass that was 50 pounds of a huge pompano and two very large snapper four hours, these boys more than their job and we are so grateful. We will definitely be back in June when we come back.

Caught a few sailfish on an offshore trip. Didn’t have luck with yellowfin or dorado but that will happen sometimes. Can’t control the fish. Had a fun time catching sailfish and seeing spinner dolphins.

Everything went as expected. The crew was there on time (at 7am) and was very helpful. They asked us what our preferences were in terms of types of fish we wanted to catch, and they delivered. We caught several very large sailfish. The boat was a good size and we felt comfortable and safe at all times. So overall, no regrets. We would recommend them strongly and we would use them again.

Jorge and his first mate Enrique were great. They put us on fish and were extra caring for all our needs. We caught 4 sailfish and a yellowfin tuna. They cut up some of the tuna right there on the boat and we ate it with soy sauce and wasabi. Amazing! They also cut up fresh pineapple and served it to us. Sandwiches and drinks were also provided. You don’t have to worry about anything with these guys.
