Fishing in Nosara, Costa Rica


Visitors: 175

One of the many enjoyable activities available in Nosara, Costa Rica is sport fishing in the Pacific Ocean.  There are many popular varieties of fish that are commonly caught off the shores of Nosara, Costa Rica including Yellowfin Tuna, Black and Blue Marlin, Red Snapper, Sailfish and Dorado aka Mahi Mahi.  If you enjoy a fine dining experience with your catch, there is no better place to fish than off the shores of Nosara, Costa Rica.  These are the fish that are usually served in the most exclusive restaurants and nothing tastes better than cooking your own freshly caught gourmet verities.

A Rental or a Charter

You may want to simply rent a small boat and head out on your own fishing trip or you might prefer to hire a qualified guide to take you out on a chartered boat to where the best fishing is known to be found.  A qualified charter guide will help you make the most of your experience and avoid the pitfalls that an inexperienced person might make fishing for their first time in the ocean waters of Nosara.  Understanding things like, not only where the best fishing is, but also how currents and the weather affect the fish is another big advantage to hiring a guided charter.

Using the Right Equipment

Of course, using the right fishing gear for your ocean trip is vital.  You will want to have plenty of sunscreen and a good pair (or two) of sunglasses on board to protect yourself.  Next, you need the right fishing poles and bait.  You need special deep sea fishing gear that will include a heavier weight fishing line that won't break while you reel in your prize winning marlin.  Don't worry if you can't get all your fishing gear on the plane with you since there are plenty of little places to rent equipment in town.

A Fishing Vacation

Traveling to Nosara, Costa Rica specifically for a fishing vacation is a great way to escape the everyday pressures of life and truly enjoy some good fishing in a peaceful environment.  The views out on the ocean are fantastic since Nosara, Costa Rica is so underdeveloped at this time.  It is likely to stay that way for quite some time due to the Ostional Wildlife Refuge that was created to protect the large numbers of olive ridley turtles that nest there.  This is also a great place to really stop and appreciate nature in its intended format.  The next time you are planning a fishing vacation, you should really consider Nosara, Costa Rica.
