What anglers said about Black Marlin Fishing in Puntarenas Province

Wear a rain jacket, hat and something to cover your face. It can be sunny and hot and rainy all on the same trip. The waves were high, so the sea spray will get you which is part of the adventure! Be prepared for big fish!

If you plan to bring your own terminal tackle, make sure that the captain and deckhand will allow you to use it. Also, ask about what type of fish is in season and what will you be going after during your trip such as if you would like to do a combo trip (both offshore and bottom fishing either on your way out or coming back in. ).

Bring a long sleeve shirt that’s not tight and maybe a light rain jacket if it’s rainy season. We wore both on the way back because it was stormy and raining.

Prepare for a long boat ride to get to the tuna this time of year; I thought we'd be much closer to shore. Sporadic action but when it's on...it's on.

Dress for high humidity conditions and don’t stress the heat. Enjoy the setting! Investigate the different fishing seasons. Puerto Jiménez is a world class fishing destination, but be realistic, it’s still fishing. Be mindful of the picture that high end advertising paints. Be clear on final payment options during reservation process. Enjoy! Pura Vida??

Cash is king; almost all transportation is cash only (dollars or colones). Sunscreen and proper clothing; the sun is strong and the humidity is high.

The trip is behind the pelican restaurant next to los suenos. A mistake I made was going to los suenos marina. Then I had to walk 20 min. To the actual spot.

Make sure your captain takes the time to catch live bait if you're fishing inshore! The more bait you have, the better.

Ask questions about the condition of the boat. I assumed that the A/C would be working to help cool our group. The boat we went on the fishing trip was a bit outdated and the AC wasn't working. It was a very hot and humid day on March 13. Make sure to eat something before the trip or take snacks. People that aren't used to the culture might not always enjoy what the boat has to offer for snacks/meals.
