After about 2 weeks of heavy rains in mid-October, the transition stage towards the summer arrived. The blue skies, the heat and the sun took over every day in Guanacaste. The fishing trips showed us that we have had a lot of Dorado, thanks to the marine currents that carry all the natural garbage that the rivers take to the sea, perfect place for the small fish and ideal area for the dorados. Each fishing charter can easily catch up to 5 large mahi mahi on a fishing day. And to date, dorado is still present in the Gulf of Papagayo. If you have thought of coming to Costa Rica in search of action, fishing trips in the Gulf of Papagayo are ideal at this time of the year. We offer private fishing charters for all those who want to have an unforgettable adventure and take pictures of the dorados that can be seen fishing for.
