Playa Ocotal Fishing

If you’re looking for an adventure at sea, consider a Playa Ocotal fishing charter. We offer inshore and deep sea fishing charters to anglers near or from Ocotal Beach in Guanacaste.

Playa Ocotal is a beautiful little gray sandy beach in the Gulf of Papagayo. The beach is very clean, with crystal clear water all year round, so it’s a nice place to snorkel or enjoy walking. The beach is no longer than 800mts long, and part of it is rocky and unable to walk or swim. Playa Ocotal is surrounded by hills and cliffs covered with vegetation, a dry forest typical of the region.

There are very few restaurants like Father Rooster or Maracuya. Playa Ocotal has some very good hotels, condominiums, and houses in the hills for rent. It is undoubtedly an ideal place for travelers who want to get away from the hustle and bustle of Playas del Coco and surround themselves with nature.

What can you expect from Ocotal beach Fishing trips?

Experience the best of Ocotal Beach Fishing all in one day. We usually go around the bay and catch something to eat or have fun.

One of the best things about inshore fishing from Playa Ocotal is that it doesn’t take as much time as deep-sea fishing, which requires boating out for at least a couple of hours so that you can go fishing and snorkeling all in one tour.

You´ll also enjoy the beautiful Guanacaste coastline or humpback whales swimming around, jumping dolphins and turtles while trolling for your catch.

Children are welcomed onboard, and our crew would love to make it a special experience.
