Costa Rica is one of the best tourist destinations in Central America for sport fishing, especially the one that takes place in the northern side of the province of Limón: Tortuguero and Barra del Colorado, at the Caribbean coast.

Tortuguero offers its visitors, domestic and foreigners, a wide variety of flora and fauna, spectacular water canals, ecosystems, forests and ideal beaches for sport fishing. Meanwhile, Barra del Colorado Wildlife Refuge is the largest reserve in Costa Rica and has lakes and a canal 78 kilometers long.

The sport fishing it’s an activity charged of adrenaline where tourists will test their skills by fishing:

  • Tarpon
  • Robalo
  • Mackerel
  • Barracuda
  • Marlin
  • Sailfish
  • Tuna
  • ‘Machaca’
  • ‘Lobina Arco Iris’

Let’s recall that sport fishing in Costa Rica implies catching and releasing the animal without harm.

Information from the Costa Rican Tourism Institute (ICT) regarding sport fishing in Costa Rica, indicate that, for example, in 2012 over 73 thousand people visited the country to practice this activity.

Tourists that visit Tortuguero and Barra del Colorado do not hesitate to tell some of the reasons for choosing those sport fishing locations: they love being in contact with the open sea, nature, trees and animals, but, at the same time, they love the adrenaline of the fishing.
