Charter Operator
Papagayo Fishing

Member since September 2015 Coco, Costa Rica
Background
'I was born in a town of commercial fishermen. The area where I live now is a very popular area for tourism and good fishing in Gulf of Papagayo.' Capt. Jose Mendez has a deep knowledge of local fisheries and will make sure you have a beautiful day on the water. He has been doing this job for over 18 years. Capt. Jose turned his job into a family business – his two sons and his older brother are also captains. They take turns in being 'the captain.' Capt. Jose loves his job because he gets to drive people around in his boat. Also, people like to ask him questions about fishing and his country, and he loves to talk to them and answer their questions.
Techniques
Captain Jose does inshore fishing for Roosterfish and Cubera Snapper with live bait in 30', along with fishing for Sailfish, Marlin and Mahi Mahi in 300'.
