Inshore and offshore species!!!!
Flamingo, Costa Rica, is one of sportfishing’s most legendary destinations, an idyllic laid back beach community located in the Central American nation’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.
