What clients Say about Papagayo fishing

One of my favorite trips! Was able to try top water, jigging, live bait and trolling. Caught lots of fish.. picked me up at my hotel and had lots of drinks and food to enjoy.

Jose was incredibly responsive to all my emails to make booking extremely smooth. His sons, Geremy and Greyvin were captain and first mate. They made our on board experience amazing. We caught 5 species including the bucket list, rooster.


The captain and crew did an amazing job maneuvering through rough seas and using the out riggers and live bait to guarantee a catch!! We caught two and released sailfish weighing around 85 lbs! We also caught 4 Mahi Mahi so everyone was eating a great dinner that evening Plenty of food and drinks supplied and no language barrier. Would recommend the Dream fishing boat to get out of the sun or rain with plenty of coverage!

Patti M

Papagayo Fishing Charter was the best decision we made. Greyvin and Jeremy were great! We caught Bonita, Rooster fish AND a Sailfish! It was the fishing trip of a lifetime. When we return to Costa Rica, we will book another fishing trip with them.
We HIGHLY recommend this family owned business.
