What People Are Saying About Snapper (Cubera) Fishing in Costa Rica

"half day trip with Disco Pirata"

Jeffrey Kang fished with Disco Pirata on September 3, 2017

Wife and I are novice fisherman. Jorge and Luis spoke fair English, but were fishing in Costa Rica for over ten years so they knew what they were doing. Went bottom fishing for snapper and caught about 6-7 grouper (2-5 pounds) see picture. Then went trolling and caught a sailfish (80-100 pounds) see picture. Fabulous experience. Would do it again.

"Allin Sportfishing full day trip. 3/8/17"

Juan Cuellar fished with Allin Sportfishing - 28’ Mako on March 12, 2017

Caught Rooster fish, jack fish and small snapper. Mate filleted snapper and Capt. Henry brought them to El Pelicano restaurant for us and we went that afternoon and the restaurant cooked our fish with sides while we sipped margaritas and watched the sunset on Herradura Beach.Overall good trip.


Elizabeth Ozmun fished with Jackpot Sport Fishing on January 7, 2017

We had a really good time fishing. The crew worked hard to help us catch fish. It was a nice surprise to catch a big red snapper at the end of the day. We'd do it again!
