A country privileged by its geographic position, bathed by the waters of the Pacific Ocean and the Caribbean Sea, Costa Rica is blessed with fantastic weather with only two marked seasons, dry and rainy, which allow the practice of sport fishing year round; the country accounts for only 0.03% of the earth´s surface but contains nearly 6% of the world´s biodiversity making for amazing and breathtaking scenarios, the delight of national and foreign tourists and sport fishing aficionados specially since its territorial sea involves 589,000 square kilometers.
These characteristics, along with the variety of marine species found in its waters, have positioned Costa Rica as one of the main sport fishing destinations in the world, it has hosted world class events such as The Offshore World Championship Sport Fishing Tournament, and the Los Sueños Signature Triple Crown, among others.
According to Michael Hardy, owner of HRG properties and rentals, Los Sueños, Herradura, one of the preferred sites for sport fishing in Costa Rica, foreigners choose Costa Rica for all the reasons listed above, but also because of the closeness to the United States, the country´s political and economic stability and security, the friendliness of the people, and in addition to this, having marinas such as Los Sueños Marina represents a huge plus, since visitors can get everything they need at the highest level.
“Our sport fishing clients in particular expect nothing but the absolute best, the best boats, the best service, the best amenities and most importantly the best fishing. Once most anglers experience the Los Sueños community many decide to make it a second home” stated Hardy.
