The tidal coefficient today is 47, a low value, which means that the range (difference between high tide and low tide) will be lower than on other occasions and the currents will also be small. At noon the tidal coefficient drops to 46 to end the day with a tidal coefficient of 48. The tide heights today are 0.4 m, 2.5 m, 0.4 m and 2.2 m.

| from 5:30 am to 7:30 am, very high activity Major period (moon down). This period of high activity coincides with sunrise; therefore the sun will exercise more influence, resulting in an excellent time for fishing
from 11:58 am to 12:58 pm, high activity minor period (moonrise)

NOTE: The times reflected in the tide table for Puntarenas are tide forecasts only valid as references for sport fishing. They shouldn't be used as a guide for navigation. The heights are expressed in meters referenced to Mean Lower Low Water (MLLW).
MLLW is the average of the lower low water height of each tidal day observed over the official time segment over which tide observations are taken and reduced to obtain mean value (Tidal Datum Epoch).
