Fishing Quepos Costa Rica
Known as the fishing capital of Costa Rica, Quepos offer direct access to the most fertile fishing grounds in the country, making fishing Quepos Costa Rica a hotspot like no other. Quepos is an easy destination to get to, only 2.5 hours by car from the SJO international airport, or 20 minutes by plane. With endless adventure activities and tons of wildlife, this area is perfect for families, guy groups, honeymooners, anniversaries and offers something for everyone. Quepos and nearby Manuel Antonio offer the best of the both worlds: some of the most beautiful beaches in the world and world class sportfishing out of Costa Rica’s newest and most conveniently located marina, Pez Vela.
Peak season for Seamount/FADS fishing is from April – December.
What sets Quepos apart from other fishing destinations in Costa Rica?
The fishing here is great year round and the location offers a diverse option of fishing styles you can enjoy. Whether you are looking for an overnight trip to the famed seamounts for Marlin, a day trip chasing sailfish and other pelagic species, inshore for roosters and cuberas or something totally unique like fly fishing on the Savegre River, there is a bit of everything.
The reason Quepos is arguably the best fishing destinations in Costa Rica is because of the location as it relates to the best fishing grounds and sea floor in Costa Rica. If you look at the wind maps and current charts, you will see the central pacific area of Costa Rica offers slick calm sea conditions and perfect currents to hold pelagic species as well as inshore species year round. Our average run time to the fishing grounds is 45 minutes to 1.5 hours unlike other parts of the world where it takes ours and sometimes days to get to the fishing action.
Marina Pez Vela
We also have the brand new state of the art Marina Pez Vela which is attracting the best charter boat captains in the country and is hosting some of the most exciting tournaments in Costa Rica. Our most famed tournament is the Offshore World Championship, which is like the super bowl of fishing tournaments. During this 4 day tournament, 60 teams from all over the world compete for the chance to be crowned Offshore World Champion. In addition to the Offshore World Championship, Quepos also host the Pelagic Rockstar Tournament in January, The Quepos Billfish Cup in March and the Marina Pez Vela Open in April. Caribsea actually took top honors for meat fish in the 2017 Marina Pez Vela tournament!
