Located in the province of Guanacaste, this friendly village is great for both fishing and post-fishing activities. Enjoy the thrill of landing big fish in the Northern Pacific and then share your fish stories with your family and friends in a local restaurant.

You will be fishing with Capt. Frank, a San Jose native, who greet fishing in Tamarindo. His personal repertoire includes the waters of the East Coast of the USA, where he spent 6 years learning the language and mastering the cast.

Since 1992, Capt. Frank has been guiding his clients and friends. He specializes in high-quality fishing experience for anglers of all ages and skill levels. Capt. Frank will take you battling anything from Black and Striped Marlin to Sailfish, Snapper, Wahoo, and Roosterfish.

You will be heading out aboard the ‘Coyote Tres’, a beautiful 35’ Carolina classic. She comes powered by a pair of Cummins engines and can cruise at a hair-raising speed of 28 knots. The Coyote Tres is equipped with a toilet on board, along with an air-conditioned cabin to beat the heat. She is also rigged with a fighting chair if you are up to a challenge.

Unbelievable trip!
Captain Frank and Mario exceeded our expectations. We were catered to and made to feel like friends, not just customers. We have all fished alot in our lifetime, so we desired a trip to top all fishing trips. They delivered and we had to Marlin hook-ups, one Sail & a beautiful Mahi. Additionally, captain Frank fed us his yummy homemade cuisine for lunch. When we go back to CR, we will be booking again! Thanks for a wonderful time guys!
