About Papagayo Gulf Sport Fishing - North Pacific Tours
Fishing in Costa Rica is a family fun experience – memories to last a lifetime! North Pacific Tours has been providing fishing, snorkeling and surfing charters for over 13 years in the Papagayo Gulf, picking up at all the local hotels and beaches in the area. We are a legal, insured fishing company, we speak English and will never sell charters on any of the beaches. There are TWO Playa Hermosa’s in Costa Rica. North Pacific Tours is located in province of Guanacaste, 25 minutes from the Liberia airport. Our fishing charters are inshore / coastal fishing which means that you will always see the coastline. Depending on the action will determine what fish you target. The types of fishing options we offer are bottom/jigging, trolling and casting. If you like to fly fish and you have your own gear, the crew will take you to best secret spots. North Pacific Tours offers full day fishing (8 hours), Half days (5 hours) and 3/4 day (6 hours). Please book in advance because we book up!

The license cost was $15 per person. It is not for one day - I think it covered 7 days (which, if for some reason, your charter were to postpone due to weather - which is rare, you are still covered).
