Today Monday, 6th of July of 2015, the sun rose in Puntarenas at 5:24 am and sunset will be at 6:05 pm.

The lunar phase is a Waning Gibbous. Today we have 12 hours and 41 minutes of sun. The solar transit is at 11:44 am and the length of time the moon will be visible will be 11 hours and 28 minutes.
The tidal coefficient today is 81, a high value and therefore the range of tides and currents will also be high. At noon the tidal coefficient drops to 77 to end the day with a tidal coefficient of 73. The tide heights today are 3.0 m, 0.0 m and 2.9 m. We can compare these levels with the maximum high tide recorded in the tide tables for Puntarenas which is of 3.3 m and a minimum height of -0.5 m.
The solunar fishing calendar in Puntarenas tells us that today is an average day for fishing, the fish activity forecast is average. Please, read more about solunar tables. The best times of day for fishing are:
| from 3:32 am to 5:32 am, high activity Major period (moon up). This period also coincides with sunrise; therefore the sun will exercise more influence, possibly obtaining greater activity than expected
from 9:41 am to 10:41 am, average activity minor period (moonset)

Tide timetable for Puntarenas. The times are generated in local time in Pacific Coast. You will also have the lunar phase, sunrise and sunset times, the tidal coefficient and the average fish activity forecast for each day according to the solunar tables:
[ 0 low activity ] , [ average activity ] , [ high activity ] , [ very high activity ]
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).
