Costa Rica Sport Fishing Vacations with Parrot Bay Village


Fishing in Costa Rica is world class and Parrot Bay Village lives up to it with the finest lodging and fishing equipment in Southern Costa Rica.

Licensed fishing captains with over 10 years fishing experience in Costa Rica, 30 ft custom Sea Vees fishing boats, top of the line fishing gear, electronics, and safety equipment in Southern Costa Rica's calm Pacific waters are an awesome combination.

Offshore target Sailfish, Marlin, Tuna, Dorado, and Wahoo; and Inshore Roosterfish, Snapper, Mackerel, African pompano, Blue Trevally are all common and taken and released daily.

Parrot Bay Village practices all types of fishing like "switch & bait" for marlin and sails, trolled ballyhoo when the Dorado are thick, and live bait for tuna and inshore fishing. Parrot Bay Village has a full arsenal of conventional heavy and light tackle, and spinning gear. Captains and crew are well versed in fly-fishing but you have to bring your own fly gear and be prepared to stretch it out.

With the exception of a few choice eating fish taken back to the barn (A man's gotta eat!) we practice fishing with circle hooks and the release of all billfish, roosterfish, and most others.

Parrot Bay Village is a personalized first class fishing and rainforest Eco- lodge on the beach, family operated and able to tailor our fishing packages for hard core fishermen to family fishing and the lot in between with many other activities for the funny people who don't want to fish everyday. Rule number one is to have fun and catch fish while your having it!

Targeted Species in Costa Rica:

  • Marlin: Mid November thru January and June, July into August blue marlin are more abundant but are caught throughout the year. Averaging 200 to 600 pounds.
  • Sailfish: Caught year round. Most abundant December thru April with regular double-digit sailfish raised. Averaging 100 to 150 pounds these are the biggest in the world.
  • Dorado: Mahi Mahi, caught year round. November, December and January very abundant. Averaging 20 to 50 pounds.
  • Tuna: Yellowfin, caught year round. Big ones 80 to 300 pounds feeding with schools of porpoise and when they are spotted we change up gear for tuna. Football size Tuna schools around trash lines are great sport and up the chances for a marlin.
  • Wahoo: Are not real common but we do get them and always a prize. Averaging 30 to 70 pounds.
  • Rooster Fish: Caught year round. Roosterfish are prized game fish for all anglers and common in the waters of Southern Pacific Costa Rica. Averaging 20 to 60 pounds.
  • Snapper: Cubera, dogtooth, Colorado, rock and others caught year round. Cubera and the others common and make a great day inshore fishing.
  • Others: African Pampano, Blue Trevally, mackerel, jacks, and snook commonly caught on any given day often in the same day.

Sailfish in double digit hook-ups are routine December through March and into April. We usually get few shots blue marlin per three day of fishing in the 200 to 600 pound class and its on stand-up gear.

In July we have a nice marlin bite, 2004 was really good and in 2005 we had a grander but it was technically caught in Panama waters. If it was here it would have been the first grander for Costa Rica.

Dorado / Mahi Mahi run hardest in late December, January, February. Averaging 30 plus pounds.

Year round inshore fishing is good. Roosters are taken on both ‘Poppers’ and live bait. The bigger ones on a slow troll same with Cubera, and Colorado snapper. We do bring enough back for our selves.

Big blue Crevalle hit hard usually 2 or three at a time when they come in. Amberjack 30 to 60 lbs often hit in pairs. Jack ravels always give you a pull for your money.

On any given day four to five 120lb hot pacific sailfish can come into the spread. Finicky days the sails play cat and mouse with teasers and pitch baits. You gotta be smoooth.

All in all at Parrot Bay Village we released 804 sails and 10 marlin in the 2006 season between two boats and 102 offshore trips. Wow!

Before Parrot Bay Village was Parrot Bay Village it was Dona Leta’s Bungalows. Leta was a world-class angler from the mid 1930’s. She fished world wide including the waters of Southern Costa Rica. She built the original structures in 1985, the new owners renovated in 2002 and today we are proud to say Parrot Bay Village is a leading full service resort in southern Costa Rica.
