Welcome to Papagayo Fishing.
The gulf of Papagayo in Costa Rica has some of the best Inshore Fishing in the world and especially for the famous roosterfish and seasonal grouper. Considered a hard fighting fish, the Roosterfish is not good table fare. Consequently, this fish is treated as a catch and release specie. These fish often reach up to 90 pounds and offer an excellent sporting adventure.

Our experienced staff will help you fulfill your Guanacaste Fishing Charters adventure right down to the last detail,Our captains and mates are local people with a large experience fishing these waters. We have been fishing here since around 25 years ago; firstly as commercial fishermen and later as sport fishermen due the arrival of much tourism to our region. and of course we fish for other species such as: dorado, tuna, cubera snapper and seasonal grouper and red snapper.

My family and I went on a half day trip today on the Dream Boat III. It was an outstanding trip Geremy and Carlos worked very hard and put us on fish. My wife son daughter and I all caught fish. 3 Mahi Mahi and several Bonito. One of the Bonito Geremy used as live bait and quickly we were hooked into a 63” 80 lb ish Wahoo. Created a memory of a lifetime for my family and I . Knowledgeable fisherman and more importantly great people to fish with. Highly recommend we will be back!!!
One of the captains in Costa Rica and highly recommended. We had an awesome time and caught some big fish the entire trip. The 4 hours goes by too quick, next time I'll book a full day.
