wahoo fishing los suenos costa ricaThe Wahoo is among the most common fish found in Los Suenos. It’s also among the most distinctive. With a boldly striped body and an elongated mouth, this compact creature stands out among the reefs. Anglers come from across the globe to chase it.

And the Wahoo’s sporting quality profile ensures that they’re not disappointed.


The Wahoo is a long-bodied fish, weighing up to 160 pounds. It’s not known for exceptional strength but does boast razor-sharp teeth, allowing it to tear through small-grade tackle.


The Wahoo is one of the fastest deep-sea fish, sprinting up to 60 miles per hour.


The Wahoo is an underwater aerialist, performing many twists and turns to free itself. 

Capturing the Wahoo requires superior tackle and superior patience. Be prepared to reel this fish in over the course of several hours, as it doesn’t tire quickly and will do its best to snap a line.
