Costa Rica Fishing Weather in March

March is one of the hottest months in Costa Rica. But out on the water, you could expect tenths to average between 89 and 91°F. With the warm water, you can expect numerous fish right for catching. However, as the month goes on, you can expect incoming rain.

Although it is not technically considered the rainy season yet, as we head into April, you can expect more and more rain. For this reason, it is crucial that you take advantage of the warm and sunny weather while it lasts. Average wind speeds are only around three mph, so you can anticipate exceptional fishing conditions since the water will stay at roughly 84°F.

Exciting Bites Along the Central Pacific Coast This March

Exceptional fishing weather means you also have an opportunity to catch some of the best bites both in and offshore. There is something for everyone, whether you are looking to capture some of the most beautiful fish or hope to reel in fish that are sure to put up a fight.

Inshore Fishing Catches


Inshore fishing is always popular in Los Suenos and Jaco. When you have an experienced fishing guide on your charter, you can find some of the best inshore fishing spots. When you are hoping to reel in some of the most beautiful roosterfish you have ever seen, look no further than the Central Pacific Coast.

But roosterfish are not the only catches you can expect inshore. Tarpons are also in season. These enormous catches can weigh upwards of 200 pounds and revel in the warm and shallow Costa Rican waters.

Offshore Fishing Catches

Offshore fishing is one of the most exciting opportunities you will have on your fishing excursion this March. This month is the peak of the sailfish and marlin throughout Costa Rica. Other tasty offshore catches you could expect include dorado, wahoo, and mahi-mahi.

Still unsure whether March is a good time for your fishing trip? The Offshore World Championship Sport Fishing Tournament is held in Los Suenos every April. This is because the end of March and beginning of April are some of the most ideal fishing conditions along the Central Pacific Coast.
