Soya gives a very thorough surf lesson at a great price. First off, the price includes the ride to and from the beach is inside Norberto's SUV (there are other beach shuttles that make you ride in the back of a pickup). Norberto is a friendly and easy going local who will stop the truck and let you out if... More

Booked the trip with Dario on April 5, 2014. First, for anyone nervous about Nicaragua, don't be. Great town and very safe. Dario's team is highest caliber, more professional than you will meet in more established fishing communities. We arrived at 6 and Dario was there to send us on our way - everything ran like clockwork. Checked us in... More

The owner personally went out of his way to make sure our fishing trip was top of the line. The staff made sure we were having a great time and were full of energy. The best fishing experience I have ever had in my life. So good we went twice!! Thanks Dario!

We took a half day boat out toward the Costa Rica border for fishing. Luis set everything up just the night before and even picked us up and dropped us off at our resort. Dario and Darwin captained the boat and took care of the lures, resulting in 5 black skipjack tuna and a mahi mahi that weighed about 12... More

We spent 2 days with San Juan Del Sur surf and sport. First day my son Lucas took surf lessons with Saul and had a blast. We hung out at the beach and kicked back in the hammock and stayed all day. With a the bar and restaurant a few feet away no need to go any where else. The... More

Went fishing twice (one half day and one full day) with this crew (Luis, Dorian and Darwin). They definitely knew where the fish were, and how to get them in the boat. Our two day count was six dorado (rare this time of year) and 20 tuna (both black tuna and white tuna). Not bad given that this is really... More

Was down in San Juan Del Sur in mid February. Hooked up with Dario and the SanJuan del Sur Surf and Sport crew after arriving. Dario and his crew were fantastic.....Dario himself speaks perfect English and Spanish and is a wonderful family guy! Had a great time fishing with him, and told him my son was hoping to go hiking...

A totally professional team, with clean and well-maintained boats. 4 of us enjoyed a fabulous half-day outing on the water. Mother Nature smiled on us and we were lucky enough to catch some big fish, including two Dorados. Captain Dorian and his mate Darwin were totally attentive, with a keen eye for our comfort and security. The humpback whales were... More

Very disappointing experience. Went for a half day of fishing. Winds were 25-30 mph, very rocky seas. Trolled for a bit and then attempted some bottom fishing. No bites at all. Louis indicated all of the fish had left for warmer waters given the unusually cold water temps of 62-64 degrees. Also, still overcoming the runs which I have narrowed... More

First and foremost thank you for using our services. We appreciate every one of our guests. Sometimes the conditions out at sea can change the expected outcome. That is why we were prepared for trolling and bottom fishing. Usually one of these forms of fishing will give us some positive results. Temperature of water and clarity will many times determine...
