Greetings Everyone, I have known Dan for going on 20 years now both professionally and personally. Dan and I have fished in Alaska, Washington, Oregon and Costa Rica. NO ONE does a finer fishing tour. From 70 pound King Salmon of Alaska to 1200 pound, "pray your arms don't fall off" Blue Marlin fishing out of Quepos or Los Suenos Costa Rica! I have recently (Apri-May 2016) enjoyed a 2 week plus whirlwind country-wide tour of Costa Rica using Dans company gofishcostarica.com.Not only does he provide fishing and guide services but he arranged my tours from San Jose, San Ramon, Los Suenos/ Jaco', Manuel Antonio National Park, and the lovely famous fishing villages of Quepos and Golfito. Dan arranged a driver to pick me up at the airport in San Jose and prearranged all th activities of my choosing and then some, which included site-seeing, incredible dining, scuba diving, Marlin fishing, zip lining, ATV tours of both the rain-forest/jungle but another of the volcanoes!!! I look forward to the Crocodile and bird sanctuary tours and maybe wave-running on my next annual trip. Dan researched and pre-booked me a FANTASTIC Villa on the beach with beautiful black sand beaches and very close to all the action of downtown Jaco' without the hustle and bustle. It was so exciting but yet, totally relaxing. Dan and his lovely wife also arranged for my Chef Dee and Janeea to do their magic in the gourmet kitchen of my Villa. The Maine Lobster and Spanish noodle dish was incredible! Another night we had Dans famous "Alaskan Salmon and BBQ ribs"! oh my.......If you ever get a chance to have Dan appoint you with a Villa, Chef, private driver AND BBQ...."you will die a happy man". Everyone provide Top Tier services. Thank you Dan for everything. Your recommendations were SPOT ON and we will return wide-eyed for our next adventure with you. Be sure to thank you wife for her very generous and gracious hosting. Cant wait to come back to the 85 degree fun in the sun! Craig Daniels Vancouver Washington, sadly 60 degrees and cloudy. lol Enjoy, Pura Vida baby!!!
