Playa Conchal inshore fishing
First, thank you for your extremely prompt return of our deposit! I knew I could trust you with no problem!
Second, thank you for an excellent day of fishing on Cormoran. The captain and his first mate took excellent care of us and worked extremely hard all day to ensure that we had a successful day. They gladly accommodated the 2 additional people we brought along unexpectedly. Great job to you for handling the transaction and to the captain and first mate for making the day memorable. Attached are a few pictures of the fish we caught.
Next time we are in Costa Rica, we will fish with you again for sure.

Pura Vida!

Allegro Papagayo Fishing charters
Senor Mendez,

Just wanted to express thanks for two awesome days on Costa Rican waters fishing. Unfortunately we did not hook into any marlin or sailfish but we knew it was going to be hard to get one. Adolfo, Luis, Graybie and Carlos were all exceptional, courteous and knowledgeable guides. I am in the guiding industry and know what it takes to find good people to represent your outfit and do a good job. I have included some pictures you may be able to use on your website.

Also I was really hoping to buy some shirts with your company logo on it. If possible I will pay with credit card and you can send them to my American address I will pick them up there. Let me know if this is possible.

Of course Jenna caught the two 2 40+ lb. Dorado, but I was pretty damn happy about the one I caught and the rooster fish.The captain and first mate both worked very hard to get us into some quality fish! Attached are some photos.
Pura Vida,

Hi Genaro,

I just wanted to say thanks for setting up the charter for my wife Dawn and I aboard the Wahoo this past week. Captain Lino and Dennis were both great and we had a really great time. Although the fishing was a little slow, they both did everything they could to get us on the fish and we appreciated that. We can not wait to get back to Costa Rica and fish with you again.

Attached are a couple links for video of my sailfish. Is it possible for you to email me the pictures that Captain Lino took of our trip?

Thanks again,

Hola Genaro,

Deep sea fishing from Tamarindo beach

The crew with Luis and the son of Nelson were one of the best I have ever seen. They try all to catch fish and did some very nice hook ups. I can only recommend this company to all angler. Best Company, best crew and best fishing in Costa Rica.
I will be back soon to fish with you.
Saludos from Germany,

Thanks again for such a wonderful experience!

Providing fishing charter for the new Riu Resort in Guanacaste Costa Rica

I was a bit concerned about even taking a fishing trip initially because my wife is 18 weeks pregnant. She not only handled herself well on the boat, but she also landed (6) Dorado's. The boat seat allowed her to rest the rod between her knees in a holder, where all she had to do was use moderate strength to pull up the 5-10 lb. fish. Jesus and Lino were both very accommodating.
Me, on the other hand I landed (2) Sailfish in the first hour ranging between 120-150 lbs. The pictures don't even begin to describe what a great job the crew did, as well as the memories I'll hold for a lifetime.

Thanks again.
