The Presidential Papagayo Cup fishing tournament takes place from May 28 to 31 in northwestern Costa Rica.
This is the fifth season for the event put on by The Billfish Foundation. Marina Papagayo is the base. The event is part of the Billfish Tournament Series of Central America.
The Billfish Foundation also promises a fishing challenge at an entry fee much lower than the $5,000 for the gamefish tourney.
The fishing challenge is for those who want to seek dorado, wahoo and tuna. The foundation said it hoped to attract local boats, too.
The proceeds go to support the foundation’s conservation efforts.
