In the waters of Costa Rica's Caribbean coast, tarpon fishing excels near the river mouths. The "silver rockets" weigh in at an average 80 pounds, but often fight harder than a big billfish
Snook also thrive in the rivers and streams.
Barra Colorado, near the Nicaraguan border, and Tortuguero to the south, have been popular tarpon and snook fishing spots for years. Barra Parismina is fast becoming the place to go, however, as it has not been fished as heavily. It's midway between Tortuguero and Limon.
A full day of fishing costs $350 per person (maximum of two per boat). This includes room and three meals a day at the Parismina River Lodge, complimentary beer and soft drinks on the boat, and all tackle. Boats are 23-footers with center console and 90 horsepower outboards.
