If you are looking for some of the best sailfish and marlin fishing ever this is a great place to start. The captains are knowledgeable and go the extra mile to get you into fish and make your experience a good one.

Fishing Nosara is a very good company with great boats, very good english speaking guides and they do their best to get you fish. Alex and Wilson tried their best and we landed 1 sailfish. Craig the owner has built a solid company.
