Central Pacific

Rugged coastlines. Dense rainforests. Hot sun, and pounding surf. The Central Pacific Coast of Costa Rica is all these things, and more. Curious monkeys scamper through the canopy, watched by inquisitive (and often lazy) sloths. Towering waterfalls feed rivers that empty onto the beaches, where breaching humpback whales can be seen in the distance. It’s no surprise that this stretch of Costa Rica is popular, and it holds plenty of fly fishing options! Target warmwater exotics in the rivers. Fish for snook, roosterfish, and snappers at the river mouths. Get offshore and chase sailfish and tuna on a sportfisher. The Central Pacific Coast has a little for everyone!

Intense Topwater Fly Fishing in the Costa Rican Jungle A distant relative to the Amazon’s piranha, Brycon costaricensis or the machaca, is an interesting and highly enjoyable fish to pursue on fly. The fish inhabit lakes and fast moving rivers in lowland drainages of Costa Rica.
