You’ve heard a lot about the incredible sport fishing in Costa Rica and Panama, and we don’t want to make you choose. With this combo package you will enjoy the best of both worlds as you fish for two full days in Costa Rica at the famous Los Suenos Resort before heading to Panama’s #1 rated fishing lodge for two more days of fishing at the famous Hannibal Bank. Offshore the sailfish, marlin, dorado, and huge yellow-fin tuna put you to the test and inshore you can wrestle with speedy wahoo and gigantic roosterfish and Cubera snapper in Panama.
Fly into San Jose, Costa Rica where we will meet you and take you to your waiting private van. Our bilingual driver will take you just one hour to the spectacular Los Suenos Resort located along Costa Rica’s Central Pacific Coast. This gorgeous 1,100 acre property features a spa, twelve restaurants, beach club, 18-hole golf course, marina village and a 600 acre nature reserve. Your accommodations will be in a luxury 1, 2, or 3 bedroom condo which comes fully furnished with wifi, flat screen TVs, AC, full kitchen, and private balcony or terrace with either ocean or rainforest views.
Let’s go fishing! Experience the famous offshore fishing that has made the Los Suenos Resort one of the most sought after sport fishing destinations in the world. Within a 20-30 mile run you’ll be trolling ballyho and squid chains for marlin, sailfish, dorado, and wahoo. The Los Suenos Resort hosts three international billfish tournaments each year and in season boats can see 15+ sailfish a day.
Let’s go fishing! Head back out to the deep water for one more day of sport fishing in Costa Rica. Fish with the same crew and boat and troll the trash lines to bring a dorado or wahoo back for dinner. Of course if billfish is your game then there is no better place in the world to catch a sailfish than Costa Rica.
This morning we will pick you up and take you back to the SJO International Airport for your flight to Panama for the second half of your fishing vacation. The flight to David, Panama will be just one hour long and upon arrival you’ll be met by the Panama Big Game Fishing Club. They’ll drive you one hour to the coastal town of Boca Chica where you will get on a boat and cross over to Isla Boca Brava and the Panama Big Game Fishing Club.

Your private cabana will come furnished with AC, 55” smart TVs, free wifi, pre-stocked mini fridge, and a large private bathroom.
Let’s go fishing! See how the sport fishing in Panama compares to Costa Rica as you head out to the world famous Hannibal Bank. This famed hot spot is home to huge black marlin, sailfish, and cow yellow-fin tuna. Unlike Costa Rica you won’t be catching many of these fish on 30Ws, the marlin and tuna are so big here the boats at the Panama Big Game Club are all outfitted with 50Ws and 80Ws. Fill up the tuna tubes with bonito and enjoy the fun!
Let’s go fishing! You’ve caught all the billfish you can handle so now it is time to see what all this talk about the “Jurassic Park of Inshore Fishing” is about. Panama’s Gulf of Chiriqui is home to over 200 islands which provides perfect habitat for jacks, grouper, mackerel, wahoo, snapper and huge roosterfish. Troll with live bait, head up to the popping station on the bow to cast poppers and plugs, or bottom fish with smooth Shimano Stella reels as you fight some of the biggest inshore species you are ever likely to encounter.
Sleep late and enjoy a big breakfast at the PBGFC as today you are free. You’ll enjoy a relaxing morning at their infinity edge pool before we fly you back to Panama City to spend your last night in their capital city before heading home. You’ll stay at the brand new Waldorf Astoria, which is the first and only Waldorf in Latin America. Relax in 5-star luxury and enjoy the fine dining in Panama City before you head home.
