Ricco Harbor is a trading port in Isle Delfino in the game Super Mario Sunshine. Mario can access Ricco Harbor after he has three Shine Sprites and defeats the Polluted Piranha that devoured the Boathouse. Its name "Ricco" is Italian for "rich", so the name translates to "Rich Harbor".
The player starts in a small port area with some storage sheds. One of the Manhole entrances is in this area as is a box with a Turbo Nozzle. During Episodes 2 and 6, there is a pier to the right where Big Daddy lets Mario use his Blooper Racers. Around the port are two large boats the player can use to reach other areas of the level.
The boat directly ahead of the player's starting position leads to the large port. The boat itself has a fenced off deck that holds a few Goobles. The player can take one of two ways to reach the port: By simply jumping of the left side of the ship, the player will be in a lower area with many crates and the large Ricco Tower. By using a Manhole here, the player can reach the upper ledge and into the port. Another way is to use a swinging grate platform off the right of the ship. The grate will bring the player to two other platforms with an arrow on them, pointing toward the helipad ahead. During Episode 1, a large chain-link box maze will be available to help the player across the platforms. After the arrow platforms is another swinging platform that will lead to a Pianta that is capable of throwing the player, the distance of the throw depends on the episode number, with later episodes having the Pianta throw Mario farther. To the left of this platform is a submerged submarine, which the player can surface by spraying the wheel above them. Crossing the submarine will lead to a rising platform the player can use to reach the port.
The boat to the right of the player's staring position will lead to a large obstacle course-like group of beams and platforms positioned over the level. The only time the player really needs to climb these platforms is during Episode 3: The Caged Shine Sprite. The platforms are made up of chain-link fences the player can climb and panels to flip around using , large cranes that will carry the player across gaps, moving platforms, and trampolines.

Nozzle Boxes become available beginning in Episode 3. Ricco Harbor has more Nozzle Boxes than any other area on Isle Delfino.
The array of ships in Ricco Harbor changes as the episodes go by. The ships range from small motor boats to Handysize ships and a Submarine. The number of ships changes from only three in Episode 1 to over a dozen in Episode 6. However, four ships always are in port:
Isle Delfino's port city is home to boats of all sizes and a thriving tourist trade. The fish market has the freshest seafood for miles around.
Ricco Harbor shares the musical theme of Gelato Beach, Delfino Plaza, and Bianco Hills, but in a jazz style, with prominent saxophone and electric guitar instrumentation. It was written by Koji Kondo.
The level's theme music is an unlockable element in Super Smash Bros. Brawl.
