Fishing

The open ocean holds plenty of sailfish, marlin, and roosterfish during the dry months, as well as mahimahi, tuna, and wahoo during the rainy season; there's excellent bottom fishing any time of year. Captains are in constant radio contact with one another and tend to share fish finds.

Banana Bay Marina. Banana Bay Marina has a fleet of five charter fishing boats, fitted with tournament-quality tackle and skippered by English-speaking, world-record-holding captains. A day's fishing for up to four averages $1,400. You can also charter a boat for overnight trips to Drake Bay. Golfito. 2775–0255 or 2775–0003. www.bananabaymarinagolfito.com.
