I decided to write this review two days after I completed my full-day charter trip on the La-Chila-G boat to see if I i felt the same as I did when I finished the trip, and I still do...This trip was supposed to be the highlight of my vacation here planning it for the past year. As an avid fisherman,... More

Papagayo sportfishing is terrific. Mr. Mendez facilitated a great trip. Captain Guido and mate Jose knew their stuff and gave us the experience of a lifetime. We caught 100lbs of Wahoo's and a Rooster fish which is the reason I came to Costa Rica. Great service and great time. We would book again.

Our group of 3 booked full day offshore onboard La Chila, with Captain Arnaldo, and 2 mates, Genete and Lino (sp?). The first half of the day was slow, only yielding 1 decent dorado. After trolling almost 3 more hours, we decided to head inshore to catch some bonitas and try for some rooster fish. During the ride in, our... More

We had a fun half day with these great guides who were not going to let us go home empty handed! We trolled, and tried a few spots before eventually finding a small school where we caught Groan, spotted snapper, trigger fish, jack fish and others that I can't remember. :) I didn't care because I was too excited about...

We are a loyal kind of people. We fished with Papagayo SportFishing in 2010 (Cormoran) after finding them on TripAdvisor and reading great reviews. It was a fantastic trip. We visited Guanacaste again last week and of course called upon them for a 6 hr offshore fishing adventure. The week before our trip, we contacted and Genaro Mendez was always... More

My father, brother, and I fished two days and the La Chilla and the La Montra. On the first day on the La Montra, we fished inshore. We barely had a moment of boredom. We caught a couple big roosters off the bottom, a small mahi-mahi, needlefish, and a small amberjack. It was an awesome experience with a great captain... More

Really enjoyed my time fishing with these guys. Went out for 2 trips one being my wife's first. She really enjoyed it. The captains and deck hands were nice and very professional. They all worked very hard for us to catch some fish. I would book with them again for sure!!! Thanks!!!!

I looked at Papagayo Sportfishing several months before my visit to Costa Rica on the internet and contact Genaro by email on several occasions prior to our trip. Genaro was excellent at getting back to me and on my arrival at the RIU Palace I contacted Genaro to book an 8 hour charter for my friend and I and he... More

Our fishing trip that I booked thru Genaro was AWFUL! (Just FYI, this is my first time TJ ever post a review) I called Genaro months ahead of time and told him that I would have two young children with me (one being six yrs old) and that I wanted to stay inland close to where we were staying (Four...

Great fishing trip. They picked us up on the beach at dreams resort at 7:30 am. The had some live bait. And after a quick troll we caught 4 more Bonita. We started the day fishing for rooster fish. We caught 2. Then went trolling for dorado. We caught 7. I brought my fly fishing gear. Took a break from... More
