Angry Marlin received the "CERTIFICATE OF EXCELLENCE 2011" from TripAdvisor! Angry Marlin offers 5 great boats and 5 different fishing adventures. Our boats range from 17 to 32 foot and we fish from the great ports Los Suenos, Tambor, Jaco and Puntarenas. All are located smack dab in the middle of the hottest fishing in the country, the central pacific region of Costa Rica. We offer offshore charters, Inshore charters and Estuary charters plus we include everything you need for a fun, hassle free day of fishing at no extra cost, even free ground transportation from your hotel.
