This was by far the hardest working Captain I have ever fished with! The captain and mate were very friendly and welcoming. We had a great day that ended early due to extremely bad weather rolling in. We managed to hook and land a beautiful Amber Jack and we hooked and lost a beautiful Sailfish. The Sailfish put on quite a show jumping for us three times before spitting the bait. I can’t wait until my next trip to Mexico, I will definitely be going back out with Juancho! See you next year!!

Went fishing as a surprise gift for my dad’s birthday.  Booked a week out and all my questions were answered very quickly.  Our afternoon trip began catching a smaller mahi mahi, which was the only fish we landed.  Three others got away, two of them bit through the line.  We all fish a decent amount, and it happens.  Had a great time on the water though, and probably would’ve had better luck in the morning.

We fished heading south near Xcaret, then did some snorkeling there, and tried jigging on the way back (where we had 3 bites / 2 bite the line off).  The snorkeling was fun but next time, I’d skip it and go fishing the whole time.

Captain Salas and his assistant were excellent - they really want you to land the fish.  They have great experience and great personalities.  The boat is the typical fishing vessel you’ll see parked on the beaches of Playa - nothing too fancy but definitely built to get the job done.  I will be booking with Capt Salas the next time we go to Playa.
