Flamingo Forecast for September & October
September and October are normally very good fishing months in Northern Guanacaste and not many boats are out fishing. In September the kids go back to school so most families have returned to the U.S. from their summer vacations, therefore it is a slow month for tourism. October is famously known as the rainiest month of the year in Costa Rica, and it is, but even at that it normally rains very little in this area. Hence, another slow month for tourism. The land heats up during the day and it rains onshore but we seldom get wet offshore. Even if we get a little rain the fish don’t care, they are wet anyway. The water is calm because the Papagayo Winds have not started blowing yet. We won’t have much wind at all until the end of November. The water is nice and blue since there are no offshore winds blowing. The marlin, sailfish, tuna and mahi will be biting offshore as well as roosterfish, cubera snapper and amberjack inshore. The only problem is that there are very few clients that take advantage of no crowds, cooler weather, calm seas and the great fishing this time of the year in the Flamingo area. It is a well-kept secret that more anglers should take advantage of.
