JD's Watersports in Costa Rica

Costa Rica’s South Pacific coast has long been known for its world-class Sailfish, Marlin, Yellowfin Tuna and Dorado (Mahi-Mahi) Sportfishing as well as spectacular Inshore Fishing for Roosterfish, Jacks and Snapper. Billfish are catch and release, but you can keep other species.

We catch fish year-round, but our prime billfishing season is December- May. December – May is also dry season, so the seas are generally calm when the fishing is best. Our waters abound with whales, dolphins, turtles, manta rays, and many other species of marine life throughout the year.

"Just a note of thanks for hooking us up last week in Costa Rica, we had a great time fishing with JD Watersports. I just thought I would include a copy of a photograph in case you wanted a testimonial. Mone-Celeste all but 98 lbs. caught this boat record 70-75 lb 5'7" tall Dorado. We had a great time and appreciate all your help in making it happen."
