Guanacaste Fishing Charters
Fishing in Guanacaste is extremely popular, and in villages such as Playa del Coco it once was the main source of income for several locals. Playa del Coco, Tamarindo, Playa Conchal and Playa Flamingo were once very tiny fishing villages before the beauty of these towns attracted large hotel chains.
All our fishing charters in Guanacaste depart from Playa Flamingo or Playa del Coco with several boats able to pick you up directly from the beach of your hotel.
