Guanacaste Fishing Charters

Omaha, Nebraska - Excellent Fishing Charter...

Highly RECOMMEND using them. Captain Jose Mendez and his son Jeremy were awesome. They emailed back very promptly. Very happy with their efforts and service. Fishing is really based on luck but with experienced team, and how hard they try to work to get you fish, gives you the best chance. My 8 yo boy and I went with them end of May/begin of june, they picked us up right at the beach in front of our hotel Riu Guanacaste. We went In- Shore fishing, by rocks and a few miles out bc of time of year with rain and current. We got a a beautiful huge Pompano that my boy had a blast catching. We caught our live bait small bonito to go for Rooster Fish. I got one, and it fought so hard and just beautiful fish. Also got some black tuna and small mahi-mahi. Captain Jose Mendez and his two boys run the boats. Fantastic family business and they change up the fishing scene if not biting. They do NOT just stay in one spot. They move around to help find fish for you. We did half day trip on their smaller Bahama boat which had nice extended shaded area. Absolute Blast!!!! I will be using them again when I go back to Costa Rica

Rhett C - Good day,good Capt & mate, good boat & equipment

Being from Charleston SC, I've offshore/inshore fished all my life. and fished all over the world with guides as well. Capt Jose Mendez & mate were knowledgeable and hard working and put me on fish, We caught Yellow fin tuna's & Roosters(and some skip jacks) It"s called fishing- not catching..So... what matters to me is a good Capt, good mate, good boat,and good equipment, and fresh bait !! And I got all that, and catching fish to me was a bonus. I felt safe, and as if i were with old friends. I would fish with him again. I cant say that for some others i've fished with. Pura Vida !!

Kevin-B - Great Trip...

Captain Jesus, Oscar and Kevin picked us up at Flamingo Marina and off we went. After a slow morning the Dorado started hitting. After a couple of hits and two good size ones caught and cleaned we went back in for Rooster Fish. 5 hits and three catches including an 80+LBS one! The crew was professional, positive and very experienced. Plenty of food and beverages. I had a great time and an outstanding meal the night for sure!

Christinamontalbo. - Awesome fishing trip...

We went out with hopes of a sailfish and ended up catching 3! We had a triple hook up and brought two of them in early into the trip. Later we got a third. It was a great trip. Misa and Carlos were great!

dankeener - Great crew and nice, clean boat...

Captain Jose and mate Jonathan really went out of their way to get us on some fish. We ended up with two real nice Roosterfish. We had a ball, and the guys were great.

lachtziger. "Pura Vida" - Amazing!...

My husband and I have always wanted to go bill fishing, so this was at the top of our to-do list while in Costa Rica. I booked the trip with Jose. He was very patient and quick to respond to all of my emails with questions while we decided what we wanted to do. They picked us up right on time on the beach in front of the resort. Grayven was our captain and Jeremy was on deck with us getting the lines in the water and making sure everything was taken care of. He worked hard and did a great job. We caught exactly what we told them we wanted to catch....sailfish, roosterfish and mahi mahi. Our trip was amazing. If we ever get the chance to go back to Costa Rica, I would only fish with these guys!
