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

I planned a trip with Capt. Paco early in April and was very happy with the results! He went out of his way to make sure I caught fish and had a great fishing experience. I had two great days of Tarpon fishing thanks to his experience with the area and caught 5 beautiful tarpon. I would not hesitate to... More

Our son caught one and my husband caught a bunch (even fighting one for 1.5 and losing it) My husband and son are... More

We had a great half day of fishing with Paco recently in Puerto Rico. We met at a large lake south of San Juan to go bass fishing for a half day. Paco was very professional and helpful to both of us. A great guide is determined not only by how well they find the fish, but how helpful they... More

Living in west Texas, the opportunity to catch fresh water fish is rare because of the drought conditions. When planning our vacation, I looked for a location that had fresh water lakes in a tropical location. Puerto Rio fit the bill and thanks to Tripadvisor we booked with Capt. Paco and were able to land many rainbow and peacock bass... More

I have fished these same waters with other guides. Without a doubt, Paco has a better understanding of where the fish are and when you are most likely to catch them. We had ten strikes in three hours, ultimately getting two in the boat. I originally was looking for a peacock bass trip, but Paco assured me the tarpon were... More
