Costa Rica Flamingo Fishing Rodeo Set to Begin

May 28, 2020

Flamingo, Guanacaste, is one of sportfishing’s legendary destinations, an idyllic laid-back beach community located on Costa Rica’s northern Pacific coast.

A short run to the fishing grounds brings excellent opportunities at all three species of marlin (blue, black and striped) as well as sailfish, tuna, wahoo and mahi-mahi, called “dorado” locally. Back inshore, there are roosterfish, jacks, grouper and snapper.

Based on this excellent fishing, as well as a desire to get back to the basics with a fun tournament, the Presidential Challenge Charitable Foundation is hosting the Presidential Flamingo Fishing Rodeo from August 9-11, 2019.

The tournament’s mission statement is to publicize Flamingo as the fishing destination that it used to be. Proceeds will benefit marine conservation in Costa Rica and a local charity.
