Los Suenos and Jaco experience excellent, warm weather as we head into the second half of May.

This provides an excellent opportunity for avid anglers to plan their fishing vacations at a fraction of the regular cost.
The Pacific Ocean is tranquil offshore with low winds and with small waves. These placid conditions are providing optimal opportunities to venture further out. With an average water temperature of 75°F offshore, it's perfect for catching Sailfish, big Tuna, and Marlin.
Fishing inshore waters is also top-notch right now. With an approximate water temperature of 80°F, inshore we’re seeing perfect conditions for catching a variety of fish, including Snook, Jacks, and Roosterfish. With weather this favorable, both inshore and offshore are perfect for a full day fishing.
Throughout the month of May, it is possible to catch Blue and Black Marlin - some of them weighing up to 600 pounds! From January to July, Yellowfin Tuna is at its peak season and the strong numbers we’re seeing reflect that. Getting on the chase for Yellowfin Tuna is an unforgettable experience that is sure to get your adrenaline pumping. Offshore Anglers are having a blast out of Los Suenos Marina. These waters are known for a variety of bucket-list fish, including Striped Marlin and Sailfish, which can be caught all year round. Mahi Mahi's appearance has been increasing consistently during the last two months and is finally at its peak. From now until December, we’re looking at the best months of the year for these delicious fish. It’s prime season for offshore fishing and we’re loving every minute of it.
May is also a perfect month for fishing in the inshore waters off Los Suenos. From May to August, Wahoo dominates. While inshore fishing involves fishing closer to the shore and typically targets smaller species than deep sea fishing, a day inshore isn’t any less exciting. Inshore fishing is perfect for anglers of all skill levels, and the variety of fish that can be caught during May is truly impressive. One of the most prized catches during this time of year is the Roosterfish. This species is known for its distinctive appearance - with a colorful combed-back crest. Notorious fighters, Roosters are as challenging as they are rewarding to catch. Other species you can encounter while fishing inshore include Snapper, Grouper, and Mackerel, which can be found hiding between rocks or lurking near flotsam.
