Capt Paco knows tarpon fishing and is solely interested in the client experience. Very knowledgeable and puts you on the fish. I couldn't have asked for a better fishing experience. Till next time, thanks Paco.

Captain Paco was an excellent guide. I had read the reviews prior to booking the tour, and I have to laugh at the few negative reviews that I read. Our experience couldn't have been any further from what they depicted, and it certainly sounds like there were a few bitter egos involved! I have taken fishing tours a few times... More

Captain Paco is a very knowledgeable fishing guide that truly cares about providing an excellent fishing experience for his clients. He worked hard to make sure we landed a once in a life time tarpon! I would highly recommend using Captain Paco.

Recently visited Puerto Rico and couldn't decide between sailing, beaching, parasailing, golfing, Old San Juan Tour, rum tours - you know the drill! Thank God my Jim found Paco's website!! As the pictures would show, we had a trip of a lifetime...he is a great host, got monstrous fish - way fun!!!

Captain Paco is an excellent guide. I had four hits on the fly, and caught a 40-50 pound tarpon and a 90-100 pound tarpon on a 4 hour trip. I mainly fly fish for trout, steelhead, and large and small mouth bass quite a bit and dabble in fishing for other species, sometimes with a guide sometimes not depending on... More

Captain Paco was booked for the morning slots throughout the duration of our trip in San Juan, so we took an afternoon slot starting at 2:00 p.m. I was skeptical because I have not had much success in the past starting early afternoon. Captain Paco did not disappoint. Multiple strikes and I finally landed a 60 pound tarpon. I had... More

Captain Paco is a top of the line guide. He had us on fish within the first 20 minutes, during that time we had five bites (note: during the heat of the day 2 pm, He put us on top of the fish) Captain Paco had all of his drags set to perfection which made it possible to land a... More

Excellent trip! It's not all about the quantity of fish but rather the quality and experience of catching a Tarpon. Capt Francisco "Paco" was a great guide with a lot of knowledge, and very personable. We had at least 6 run-offs, nothing like seeing them hit and jump. We landed 2 30-40 pounders that were a lot of fun. I... More

I spent a 1/2 day with Captain Paco and wish it could have been longer. He knew I was a fly fisherman at heart and put me on Tarpon and within a few minutes had a hard strike. Unfortunately my lack of experience led to not hooking his fish. Later in the morning I did hook up with a nice... More
