Subject: Costa Rica Fishing License
(Posted on May 1, 2013 at 05:47AM by Lee Byard)

Costa Rica is the center of sport-fishing. Enthusiasts from across the globe come to sample the wealth of Mackerels, Crevalles and Dorados found there. They charter ships and sail from Los Suenos, exploring what the Pacific has to offer.

Those explorations, however, require a fishing license.

Those who wish to discover Costa Rica (especially the diverse landscapes of Los Suenos) must understand the need for a license. All forms of fishing--whether freshwater or deep-sea--require proper certification and, as of January 1st 2011, that certification costs $30 USD per year. There was once a monthly option for casual fishermen but this has ceased.

A fishing license can be purchased in Los Suenos. Representatives of the Costa Rican Fisheries Institute (known locally as Incopesca) are found along the marina and will provide the necessary paperwork, which must then be presented to any charter service before an excursion. 

This is simple--but necessary--investment allows every fishermen to indulge in the Pacific Region.
