Was able to go out with Roberto on my first jigging trip in late Feb. They were great guys and showed me how to jig and set me up with proper gear. Fishing was tough but we still landed a nice Almaco Jack and lost some bigger fish that snapped 50lb braid with ease :) Jigging is for those who... More

Once again I had the pleasure of joining Roberto and his deckie for two 1/2 days jigging. My three teenage children see this as the highlight of our trips to Playa del Carmen area. Roberto is a special captain. He works hard and really knows his stuff. We again were thrilled to have bent rods and great memories to share.... More

This was my 2nd trip with Roberto and Tony. They always have a good time and are very helpful in explaining the specialized deep jig fishing that you will be doing right along the shoreline. Don't miss out on a great day if you find yourself in Playa.

We fished with Captain Roberto for 2 days during our vacation in PDC in late January and we had an amazing time. My friend and I are both beginners at jig fishing so Roberto and his mate Tony was nice enough to help us set up our gears and taught us the proper jigging techniques. The conditions wasn't ideal for... More

Fishing with Roberto was an amazing experience! I am so glad we found him on tripadvisor. We got the whole experience from the jigging, to the bite, to bringing the fish on the boat! Roberto is an amazing guide and made sure we had a great time! We caught some nice sized eaters that we kept and brought back to... More

We arrived before the schedule time, and we sat down I front of the La Caleta restaurant at Puerto Arturo. Then here is Roberto calling my wife's name. He invited us to have lunch with him,... More

Had a hard days fishing with sharks being pests but with a great guide like Roberto who was such a nice guy, we managed to catch a few, we were very well looked after with my other half feeling really sea sick. Would love to go again!! Cheers for a great day.

Went to Riviera Maya just so we could have Roberto take us out fishing. I have no idea how to fish, and my husband's an expert. Roberto gave each of us the perfect guidance. I caught fish after fish, 30, 40,50 lb amber and almaco Jacks. I'm someone that needs a challenge. No quiet fresh water fishing for me! But... More

We had an excellent day with Roberto. He was extremely patient with the non-fishermen from our group. We were a party of four (2 adults and 2 boys age 13). We hooked a number of fish and landed about 12 albeit sharks got 2 of them and a barracuda got another. All of the fish were released other than the... More
