We took our son (13) deep sea fishing for his first time. He had the experience of reeling in a Amberjack that was around 35 pounds! Captain Salas was wonderful he helped the entire time while we watched. Bernardo was very attentive to the boat and helping with the rods. The day we went it was a slow day for catching. We only caught the one, but it was an experience we as parents and our son will never forget!! The crew did their very best moving from place to place to see if we could catch more, we even tried trolling. We all fely very safe on the boat. I would not recommend this for small children less than 10. Also, the web site needs to be clearer that you pay the final amount in cash only, which was fine I just wish I would have had more tip money for the crew. I would highly recommend Juancho to anyone who likes fishing! Thank you and we will definitely be back!!!

From start to finish it was an excellent day out. Capt’n Salas was ready to go when we arrived. Was friendly and informative. And we were fishing within 10 minutes of leaving the beach. Started with jigging and caught 1 amberjack ,then moved to trolling about halfway through. Caught a beautiful sailfish while trolling, first of the season. And after about a 30 minute fight landed a 6 foot beauty. Next time I am back here I will definitely use capt’n Salas again, and would recommend anyone else wanting to fish here to do the same

This was my second time fishing in Mexico. The first time I went trolling in shallow water around the reefs, North of Isla Muheres (Cancun), and caught around 10 beautiful fish—mostly barracuda and snapper. This time we jiggered for fish in deep, open water in front of the resorts in Playa Del Carmen and caught a small, 2lb tuna. Lots of work, lots of water splashing in the boat from waves, and a very small return on investment. The crew and boat were just fine, but with the poor luck we experienced this time, in deep, open water, I’ll stick with reef fishing for future fishing adventures. Perhaps we should have booked an early AM charter, because we left around 12:30PM—and I’ve heard the fishing is better in the morning.

My family and I have been fishing with Captain Salas and Juan on the Juancho for several years now. There are always on time, always have the boat and equipment in good working order, and work hard to put us on fish.

They fish nearly every day of the year, so they always know where the bite is and what lures and baits are working. We usually jig fish for amberjack, but know that they are good at trolling as well. Over the years we have caught amberjack, kingfish, wahoo, dorado, sailfish, barracuda, snapper, grouper, and jacks. We love the variety, and many of the fish are very big as well. Finally, we appreciate that they will fillet the fish up for us at the end of the day. We love taking it to a local restaurant!

As a well traveled and enthusiastic fisherman, I can assure you then when you go out on the “Juancho” you will be going on a proper fishing trip, and not just a boat ride.

Great experience! Captain Salas was great at communicating threw the whole process! We had a few questions along the way because we booked months in advance,always quick to respond.The morning of the trip, he and crew were on time ready to go.The crew worked hard the whole trip! Caught a few smaller fish,and a huge Amberjack, which made our day! Cleaned our the way we asked. I will definitely use these guys again.

I’m a single mother so read carefully for a honest review. I went fishing with my 7 and 9 year old boys. We picked Capt Salas based on other reviews. My boys loved it. We have used the fancy charters (Captain Rick’s Charters - they were awesome too), but my oldest summed it up best. The Juancho may not have the fancy fish finders or gear, but the men knew where to find the fish. They were extremely pleasant & helpful to my boys. I had two extremely happy boys. We plan on staying in Playa next year & going fishing with him again. We will use him for more than one day. I felt safe & was very satisfied with his service. He never asked for payment - I brought it up at the end of the trip. He speaks good English & they allowed me to practice my Spanish. I can tell you that his main goal was keeping my boys happy by catching fish.

Worst charter ever! Crew was late showing up. Captain was not the captain i seen in review and pictures. Did not welcome us no explanation of saftey gear and boat ettiqueete! They were more concered when i paid the balance of $210 us that a tipp was not giving first thing! last time i checked you tip at the end of service rendered according to the service provided! Not only did i not touch a fishing pole we had to ask what bait we were using! Zero personality! we sat at the front of the boat and they stayed at the back talking the whole time not paying attention to the lines!

Captain Salal and his first mate worked very hard to get us on the fish and being a very avid fisherman myself really appreciated the effort he put in. i would highly recommend booking a fishing trip with Juancho!

We met Captain Salas at about 7:15 am.  He was very welcoming and friendly.  He took us to a couple of spots, where we tried jigging with no bites.  He then took us to a spot just south of PDC where he hit it big.  He would work for a few minutes (jigging is not as easy as you might think) when he started catching fish after fish.  We caught five large Amber Jacks ranging from 20 to 60 pounds.  Captain Salas worked hard.  I was seasick after jigging for a few minutes.  My wife was thrilled to be able to catch large fish in the open ocean.  One big check to her bucket list, checked!  A strong back and a bunch of endurance is need to reel in these big fish.  The captain and his helper were both very nice and accommodating the entire trip.  We highly recommend them.

Searching for a fishing trip so far away from home can be a daunting challenge because you never know what you’re going to get. After many hours of research Captain Salas of the Juancho kept coming up…now I know why. It was not only a great value but an experience we will treasure for years to come. In my opinion he is one of the best fishermen I have ever encountered. His experience and love for fishing were evident. We were made to feel at home from the moment we arrived. He was great w my in laws who have never been on a fishing charter and my mother in law loved the kindness he showed her. Speed jigging is tough for a first timer but I eventually caught on and what a blast! We caught 4 Amber Jack and 1 Wahoo within three hours (the biggest was 45 lbs). Afterward, we had our fish prepared at Indigo Beach which was absolutely wonderful. We started the day off as customers and left as new friends. You will not be disappointed w the decision of choosing Captain Salas and his crew of the Juancho. They were friendly and just amazing to fish with.
PS…I read a couple of bad reviews before our trip (don’t believe them ) I can’t imagine anyone ever giving Captain Salas a bad review…unless it was from non-fishermen. You will not be disappointed…and who knows you may have an unforgettable experience like we did. We will definitely book w Captain Salas next time we’re in Playa Del Carmen and the trip makes us want to come back sooner than later.

My wife and I had a 6-hour trip with captain Salas and we had an amazing time. Unfortunately the weather was not good on our originally scheduled date but the captain has contacted us in advance and recommended to postpone the trip to a later day when the sea conditions are expected to be better. It was a great decision, the sea was calm, captain Salas and his deckhand were very courteous and hard working, they did their best to make our trip a memorable one. Captain Salas mentioned that trolling would be slow in this season, so we have done jigging pretty much during the entire trip and it was really productive. In the first hour we started getting bites from smaller amberjacks in the 5 to 8 lb range and we managed to bring 3 of them to the boat. My wife was having trouble with jigging so captain changed the set up to use live bait and she hooked a very nice triggerfish. We also got a very nice blackfin tuna in the 20-25 lb range and last bite of the trip was a gigantic amberjack approximately 50 lb. This was definitely the best fishing charter I have ever been so far and I have been to more than 10 charters at various countries. Would definitely recommend booking with captain Salas, I will definitely book another trip with him next time I am in the area

No fish were caught.  This happens but during the trip there was literally no communication other than to instruct us how to jig and ask every hour if we wanted a beer (whenever the first mate wanted one).  Silas the captain instructed us and it was the first mate that kept asking us if we needed anything from the cooler.  Not sure if it matters but when all the other charters went in to shore because a storm was brewing, we did not.  Silas did take us back to shore because my husband was getting sick on the boat with no food in his stomach.  We appreciated that!  But $500 was way too much to spend on a nap in his boat.

All in all he needs to work on his customer service, ie being more personable.

I ask an apology. I always tried to make you feel good and comfortable. We always offered them something to drink, I did not think that bothered him. I offered jiggin fishing and you said it was a lot of work, I offered trolling and they said it was very boring, I also offered bottom fishing and they said the fish are very small. I just wanted to offer them the best. That day most of those who went fishing did not have the best day. There were very few catches, the fishes are good, regular or very bad, unfortunately I hit a bad day to you. I sincerely apologize. I hope your husband feels better soon. God bless you. thank you very much.

Unfortunately our Captain was more concerned about chatting with his first mate and sharing private conversations than he was about the paying customers.  One word answers to questions (at best) and an “I don’t care” attitude.  Sadly I would not recommend this charter to anyone.  Sorry.

Today we had a perfect fishing trip with Salatiel and his crew. We’ve started at 7 am and after an half an hour we’ve catched the first fish. Bigger than we’ve ever expected!!
Altogether we’ve catched 5 yellow fins mackerel during our half day trip.

The crew was very friendly, helpful and also very funny! :) They showed us how to fish correctly and as you can see on the pictures: We’ve had a great time!

Finally we had a delicious ceviche, made from the fresh fish we’ve catched before.

All in all it was a perfect trip! Thank you so much for this unforgettable day!

Could not fault Captain Salas and his crew. They worked tirelessly to find and put us on the fish.
I found the style of fishing (speed jigging) hard work (I am 68) and after the first 30+lb Amberjack I was tired. After the second I was exhausted. But happy. Captain Salas works really hard to make your trip a success.

Hurricane Hermine had caused our trip to be cancelled for three mornings in a row but Captain Salas and I kept trying to make it work and at noon on the third day the wind laid enough for us to go fishing. Captain Bernie and Jesus meet Mike and I at the boat and we were fishing by 12:30 pm.  Around 1 pm we hooked up with our first fish which was a beautiful sailfish, around 7’ long.  We caught 3 barracuda after that, one of which was very large, around 5’ long.
This fishing trip on the “Juancho” was the highlight of our vacation. The crew was awesome and i really appreciate Captain Salas working with me for several days to make this trip happen. I would tell anyone they are missing out if they don’t go fishing on the “Jauncho”.

To say that I highly recommend him is an understatement.

Captain Salas had 5 high quality, very large conventional reels with lever drags. Easily handle a 500lb fish with his gear, chair and belt. We caught a 25lb cuda, a small needlefish and a 10lb cuda. Big fish were miles out due to recent rain, but El capitan got us on some shallow water cudas. Deck hand was very helpful and led us on an awesome snorkeling tour for a quick 30 minute break. The boat was plenty big for 3-4 people +crew. Not a big beautiful yacht, but it is very clean got the job done very well. Helped us get setup with a beach restaurant to cook our fish.

First let me say that I write about 1 review per year. A review must be earned whether good or bad. Captain Salas was great, on-time, clean boat, very knowledgeable and was truly excited to help you catch fish. We caught 5 barracuda’s, a jack and king fish. We tried several different methods and he was eager to show you how to fish and what to do. This crew member was great and always was preparing for the next type of fishing and keeping the boat clean. We did the full day trip and it was worth it. Many people we spoke to caught fish in the afternoon, but all of ours were in the morning before 1pm, so you never really know when the fish will be biting. Captain Salas filleted the fish we caught and recommended a restaurant that will cook them for you, for a small fee. Remember to bring your own lunch, Salas provides all the drinks. We saw many people that went fishing with other fancy boats previous to our trip and didn’t catch anything, so if you want to catch fish go with Capt. Salas.

It rained the weeks before we arrived and we were battling a full moon which lowered the abundance of fish.  Capt Sal warned us in the morning and then described what all we were going to do.  Troll for a while for big fish, Bottom feed for shallow water fish, and jig for shoreline fish.  We gave it our all in the 4 hours we booked and we were successful enough for the circumstances.  We caught a 3 1/2 foot barracuda, some sea bass, and numerous others that we released.  Had a lot of hits that got our bait but not the hook.  It is called FISHING and not CATCHING!!!  We will definitely book this trip again with Capt Sal the next time we come to Playa. Had a great day at sea with family and felt very safe and cared for by the crew.

“Juancho - Captain Salas and his 1st mate were awesome - had a great trip and caught 2 Mahi Mahi. The color of the water is beautiful dark blue and turquoise and the fish colors were just amazing. If you want to get the real feel of fishing on the ocean - sign up with Captain Sala. Did you see his picture of the 450 lb Marlin they caught in July 2015 on his website? The whole experience was very professional and enjoyable and I hope you get a chance to get out there with the team and catch some fish! Keep your lines tight!”

I was there during the off season, so the fishing was not so hot.  But Capt. Sol did everything possible to get us fish.  My only complaint is we wanted to bottom fish.  When we got there he said today was no good for bottom fishing, so we trolled.  While trolling we saw other people bottom fishing.  It was still a fun time, and I always learn something new.  You will get wet on this trip.

We have only positive things to say about captain Salas, his helper and his boat Juancho. He is a great fisher who knows where the fish are. We caught barracuda, amberjack and bonito. We can highly recommend taking a fishing trip while in Playa del Carmen and Juancho is a great choice.

We had a good time with Capt. Sala, and enjoyed getting to know him.  The fishing was not particularly good that day.  We lost a couple of amberjack early and landed only one small barracuda in a 3/4 day trip.  But we felt that Capt. Sala had done all the right things to catch fish.  They just did not cooperate.  We would recommend Capt. Sala and Juancho to other fishermen.  Fishing should be better April to June.

Wir waren einen halben Tag mit Captain Salas und seinem Bruder (der gut deutsch spricht)zum fischen.
Es war tolles Wetter wir haben schöne Fische gefangen waren in einer tollen Bucht zum schnorcheln,kurzum es war ein nahezu perfekter Tag.
Zum Abschluss waren wir mit den beiden noch in einem Restaurant wo unser gefangener Fisch für wirklich kleines Geld exzellent zubereitet wurde und unser Fang ausgiebig begossen wurde.

Captain Salas & his mate Jesus were wonderful. 4 of us caught 125 lbs of Amberjack in 4 fish, missed 3 other significant fish. They arranged for us to get our fish cooked at a local restaurant, a great experience.

Myself and my friend, Roberto, wanted to catch Mahi Mahi in Playa del Carman and we did just that with Capt. Salas. Even though it is not the best time of the year for Mahi Mahi, we were still to catch them. We also caught Barracuda. Capt. Salas knows where the fish are and how to catch them. We had an awesome time. I would strongly recommend booking a trip on the Juancho with Capt. Salas if you want to catch fish and have a great time.

We had a great time. Captain Salas stayed with it and we were able to catch a Barracuda. They cleaned the fish and referred us to a beach front resturant that cook it for us at 7 dollars per person. We had a great time! We will go again.

The captain was very good and the mate was very helpful.The captain spoke English better than I thought he would.The boat was a little small as you advised me which would have normally be fine for me but because of the rain was a little uncomfortable but the captain gave me a waterproof jacket to put on.I would have liked to catch a sailfish but that was not in the stars for that day,although the captain did try until it got boring so we then did some bottom fishing which was good.we then tried trolling for bigger fish and that was when I caught a dolphin and a barracuda. I would definitely recommend this boat but only to people who have sea legs as the rollers were about 5 feet and we did get rocked a little.
