Dream Fishing Papagayo

Playa Del Coco
Liberia GU, Costa Rica

‘Dream Fishing’ is conveniently located in Playas del Coco in the world famous Gulf of Papagayo, and is easily accessible from many of the most popular hotels in the area. Just 25 minutes away from the International Liberia Airport, this is the ideal way of combining sport fishing with a family vacation.

The boat is a 29 ft Pacific flybridge vessel that can accommodate up to four anglers in comfort. Powered by a 225 HP outboard Yahama motor and featuring a fishfinder, GPS, VHF radio and more, the boat will get you to the fish. It also features plenty of comfortable seating, a covered deck area for protection from the elements, and a toilet for additional comfort. Most importantly, it is fully rigged for sportfishing, with quality Shimano equipment on board.

Depending on the length of your charter, you could be fishing inshore for the mighty Roosterfish or the speedy Wahoo, or travelling further offshore in search of Sailfish and Marlin. The boat’s crew will be on hand to assist at all times, and are all experienced local fishermen who are primarily proponents of catch and release fishing.

As well as being a prime fishing destination, Papagayo is also great for snorkeling and sight seeing, both of which can be arranged aboard Dream Fishing. Enjoy watching turtles, stingrays, dolphins, whales and more as you peruse the beautiful white sandy beaches around the Gulf on your way to and from the fishing grounds. However you decide to spend your day, Dream Fishing will make sure it’s one to remember!

About the Captain

Josealberto Gutierrez
Liberia, Guanacaste, Costa Rica
Member since March 2016
I was born in a fisherman town, Playas del Coco. This is a locality of commercial fishermen. I have been working the entire life in the ocean, it has been the most important support for my family. The last 20 years the tourism in costa rica is been increasing and it is giving us the chance to work on sport fishing as another very important option.

Only complaints besides only getting one fish which I know is something out of everyone’s hands is the fact that it is advertised that you will get Jose as your captain but in reality you get his 26 year old and 19 year old sons. Jose has the bio on the website and essentially the reason I booked with the dream fishing Papagayo so it was disappointing not to get the captain who was expected. His sons however do seem knowledgable and are very nice but im sure you can understand you read and review before you buy which I did… but in the end didn’t even get the captain I had researched, paid for, and expected. The ad for his service on fishingbooker should explain either him or his son will be captaining the boat on the trip and provide some background information on the son who will be captain. Paying customers want to know who they will be meeting.
