The trip is behind the pelican restaurant next to los suenos. A mistake I made was going to los suenos marina. Then I had to walk 20 min. To the actual spot.

Ask questions about the condition of the boat. I assumed that the A/C would be working to help cool our group. The boat we went on the fishing trip was a bit outdated and the AC wasn't working. It was a very hot and humid day on March 13. Make sure to eat something before the trip or take snacks. People that aren't used to the culture might not always enjoy what the boat has to offer for snacks/meals.
Very good

Be prepared for afternoon heat. PRE hydrate. If prone to seasickness, reconsider. Dont drink too much alcohol, makes it hard to fight big fish. Remember some fish are compulsory catch and release. Billfish often explode spectacularly out of the water, keep cameras ready. The biology of the ocean is not under your control; if fish dont hit thats life. Likewise they may hit big time; be ready. Crews are lifelong experts, trust them to do a brilliant job. Pura vida and good fishing.

Ask the captain to explain what the plan was, we were unsure so asked. We did some inshore fishing. They help hook fish and you reel it in. They knew the spots and were excellent at fishing. Recommend the crew and boat.

Went out with captain Luis and Josh. Great people and very knowledgeable. Did the full day and had a beautiful time out at sea. I put all fishing decisions in their hands. We caught Mahi, Sailfish, and Wahoo. Turtles and massive pods of spinner dolphins as well. Fantastic day overall.

Javier and Zachary killed it. Ended up going for offshore and got two sail fish back to back, spent the rest of the day after the tuna. They took care of us, would recommend this crew and boat to anyone.

Captain Carlos and first mate Kendall were on point. Professional, courteous and dialed in! Big wahoo, 3 beautiful Pacific Sailfish (one 120"...10 feet!) Nice 35 pd. Mahi, monster pod of dolphins in a feeding frenzy with Tuna, couldn't bag one but what a show! Big Marlin strike at end of day on all 5 baits, ate a skirt, hook and bait on last one. He won that battle...but I'll be back to settle the score with him next trip with ALL IN Fishing for sure! Pura Vida!!!

Elier and Antonio did a great job! We had a great day on the water and caught some nice fish. The boat and gear were good and both Elier and Antonio went out of their way to assist us in all matters. If I came back here I would go out with them again! Thanks very much to Elier and Antonio. Mike Glass

These two guys did everything possible to find the fish. There’s only a few guides out there that would do this. We started out catching bait where I helped as well. Knowledgeable and genuinely great Duo. They know the area well. See ya guys next year when we run it back again!

Elier and Antony worked their tails off to find us fish on a tough day of fishing. We eventually got into some yellowfin and picked up a couple. They really went the extra mile for us and were very pleasant to be around. Antony even prepared a plate of fresh yellowfin with avocado, lime, and soy sauce that was amazing!!

Started off bottom fishing and had fish in the boat within minutes. After about an hour we had 10+ fish including a few good sized conger eels. We caught so many fish my should was to tired to continue so we tried trolling for a bit. We had no luck trolling. Next time I would just suck it up and fight through the pain. The conger eel and grouper were very fun to catch.

We had a great day, Captain Jorge and his deck hand worked hard to get us on fish. They were very personable and kind. We didn’t catch the fish we were after but we did catch fish, and would go back out with Captain Jorge if we were back in the area. Thanks again Captain Jorge!!

Captain Ricardo and first mate Christian are excellent! Ricardo is a good coach and is patient. He knew i wanted to check the Rooster Fish box and set out immediately to pursue the fish i wanted most. I went 2 for 4 on the Roosters. He did not waste time in any spot which was unproductive for more than 20-30 minutes and found the fish. A great day, 2 Roosters, 1 large Jack, and 2 Black Tips. We dropped at least 3 big Spanish Mackerel.

We really enjoyed this trip. Jose and his helper worked very well together to make sure we had a great trip. A couple of Jose's friends were out in other boats and they didn't catch anything. I'm glad we were with Jose so my husband could reel in his sail fish.

Taxi boat on the beach promptly at 6am, ran I think 8-10mi out and started fishing. They just had us on the fish constantly. 7 line spread. Nice abundant amount of teasers. From the tower spotting the pods of dolphins and putting us on Yellowfin all-day. Overall just a really great group to fish with. Plenty of laughing and smiles all around. Highly recommend!
