Cruising out of The Zancudo Lodge for a day of Costa Rica fishing is one of the most amazing experiences an angler can have in his or her lifetime. The private pier is located on the back side of the lodge and is situated on the entrance to the Rio Coto, a few minutes from the river mouth and is home to their fleet of high-end 32’ Contenders. The mangrove laden riverbanks are teeming with crocodiles and caiman (a safe distance away from the pier). When heading out for a day of fishing the sunrise will literally make you stop and gasp a couple of times. A myriad of aquatic birds like spoonbills, white ibis and tetradactyl-like frigates circling overhead add to the primordial jungle ambience.
Costa Rica is very active in billfish conservation. Local groups like FECOP the sport fishing lobby to the Costa Rican government pressure the restriction of commercial fishing practices that harm fish of touristic interests. Most recently purse seine vessels have been forced out 60 to 100 miles from the coast which has lead to a resurgence of sailfish, marlin and especially yellowfin tuna in the coastal waters
