Our group had another fantastic trip last week. Dave and Cathy really work to make sure the accommodations, fishing, and events are top shelf. They are always willing to work with us to work out any last minute changes or requests. The airport transportation workers perfectly and the condo was great. We only wish we could find time to do...

I sincerely can't express enough how wonderful our entire experience with CR Dreams was. From the first contact until the very last. From being picked up to the airport with ice cold drinks and beer, to coming back from our charter and having smoothies waiting for us at the dock. Dave has thought of every possible detail to make this... More

We know the hardships you all had this year and hopefully this helped get over it for a bit. Such successful fishing trips too! You got everything you wanted with sailfish, marlin and even that...

Complete vacation package with 3 great days of fishing with our 2 teenage daughters. Wonderful experience with Dave Embry & his team. All the details were superb from the breakfast at the docks & meeting you in the afternoon with drinks. We caught 7 sails, 1 dorado & 1 blue marlin. Highly recommended for a first-class experience. We will be... More

Had the best time, couldn't have ask for a better crew. I will go back! Our guide worked hard to steer the boat when I had a big sail fish of the line and the crew did an amazing job of helping me get it in the boat. I can't say enough great things about these guys.

We stayed in Los Suenos for Christmas. Decided on a whim to go fishing. Made reservation on Christmas Eve to go fishing the next day (Christmas). One boat was still available (named "Go Fish") so we signed up. I've been on a number of such excursions and didn't have high expectations of catching anything. Ended up catching 2 Sailfish, 2...

The condominium was terrific and the views from our balcony were breathtaking. The fishing aboard the Dreams 2 charter was great and the crew very professional. We caught 9 sailfish and 4 mahi - plenty to share with the crew and fix for dinner at the condo. We played golf twice on the Iguana course at the Marriott and took... More

Thanks Pat! What a great day of fishing! I remember going to Florida about 10 times in the "early days" and never even seeing a sailfish and then came to Costa Rica in 1986 and never went anywhere else to fish. 9 sailfish for you guys was fantastic! Thanks and see you next time. Dave More

Are you kidding?? A great day? Not even close! A HALLMARK DAY! EXTRAORDINARY!!

It's always fun to have you down Kirk! Especially this trip. When you emailed and said it was going to be your grandson's first billfishing trip I was probably more nervous than you wanting him to get one!

Cannot credit Dave Embry enough for the putting together one of the best Sportfishing locations in the world along the west coast of Costa Rica. Found inside the Los Suenos Merriott Resort near Jaco. The best boats matched with the most experienced crews result in an amazing fishing adventure. Our first time out we brought 11 Sailfish to the boat... More
