Costa Rica named one of world’s best billfish destinations

June 18, 2019

The fishing charter website FishingBooker has named Costa Rica as the fourth-best billfish destination in the world.

The list — based entirely on customer preferences and reviews, according to a FishingBooker spokesperson — ranked Costa Rica ahead of the Florida Keys, calling the country’s Pacific Coast “nothing short of paradise.”

“The country doubles as a fun vacation spot and an epic Billfish destination: start your day with a morning of huge fish, then roar through the jungle on a 4×4 before lunch, capping the day off by enjoying the awesome nightlife in places like Quepos and Tamarindo,” the ranking reads. “Costa Rica’s waters provide some of the best hotspots on the planet to land monster-sized fish – it just depends when you go.”

Here is the full list of top-ranked billfish destinations:

  1. Cairns, Australia
  2. Cabo San Lucas, Mexico
  3. Mauritius
  4. Costa Rica
  5. Florida Keys, USA
  6. Puerto Rico
  7. Fiji
