Nuevo Arenal is the place to be if you enjoy freshwater fishing. Lake Arenal is the largest freshwater lake in Costa Rica. You can fish it from shore at the Lake Arenal park or launch your boat there as well. Lake Coter is a smaller lake up in the mountains behind Nuevo Arenal, providing a nice alternative when you’re ready for a change. The photos below are from my own private collection.
