Tuna Fish Sportfishing is a company located in the North Pacific Coast in the Guanacaste Region of Costa Rica that specializes exclusively in Papagayo fishing charters. The beautiful landscape of Guanacaste, the world-class fishing waters, and surrounding National Parks make us a must visit global vacation destination. Our charter boats cater to all major hotels and resorts: Four Seasons, Andaz Hotel, Exclusive Resorts, Villa Sola Playa Hermosa, Occidental Grand Papagayo, Allegro Papagayo, Mangroove Resort, Bosque del Mar, Riu Guanacaste, Riu Palace, to mention a few. We also welcome visitors staying around the Papagayo Gulf area, such as Playa Hermosa, Playa Panama, Playa del Coco, Playa Ocotal, and Flamingo.

These tours take you into the Papagayo Gulf, which is located along the northern portion of the Nicoya Peninsula. The fishing here is good year-round and you have the chance to hook blue marlin, striped marlin, sailfish, rooster fish, dorado (mahi-mahi), wahoo, red snapper, and yellowfin tuna. The best time to catch each type of fish varies depending on the season, but rest assured that you have a great chance of landing several fish.

While you’re out on the water you might also be able to see humpback whales and dolphins. There’s nothing like seeing dolphins jump through the waves or watching a humpback whale swim alongside its calf across the gulf.


We provide free beach pick up from these top fishing locations. However, $50 fee will be charge on some locations (** mark)

Tuna Fish Sportfishing Reviews

My wife and I came down for our honeymoon to secrets in papagayo Costa Rica. We decided to book a fishing trip on one of the days we were staying here and we booked la huida with Noel “nito” and Armando. They were waiting for us at the beach at 730 am like they had told us with a clean well maintained boat. We took the boat about 45 minutes out and began trolling for mahi mahi, meanwhile we started trolling we saw a pod of dolphins which made the wife very happy! It took us an hour or so of trolling to get into the fish and we were able to land 3 mahi mahi by the end of the day. My wife is not into fishing but they helped her land the largest of what we caught which is pretty cool of them. If you are staying at any of the larger hotels they will keep what you caught cold and set you up with a cooler for a small fee to bring it home with you. All in all it was a lot of fun and I would do it again. May 20 2019
