“Fishing in Quepos”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2013

I just returned from a week-long fishing trip in Costa Rica and want to thank Carlos and his crew at JP Sport Fishing for an excellent trip. We fished 3 1/2 days and caught 27 sailfish, one large dorado and 3 rooster fish inshore. We had a wonderful trip and couldn't ask for better coordination for our travel and stay in Quepos. If you are planning an off-shore fishing trip in Costa Rica, I would highly recommend JP Tours

“Highly Recommended”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2012

Carlos and the crew are very professional. We had a great day of fishing and caught 3 dolphin, 6 sailfish and 1 blue marlin. When we arrived to the boat the captain, Kurt, asked what we wanted to fish for. We told him billfish and specifically marlin, and he delivered. The mate, Roberto, was outstanding and friendly. Just a great experience. I would book them again without question.

“Great trip - Kids' Firsts, A Great Day on the Water!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2012

I fish all over, but Costa Rica is truly special... and the best way to fish it is to have a Captain and crew who know the area, have the right equipment, and work with you to accomplish what YOU want. Carlos and the team at JP Sportfishing truly do that. For me, my kids’ having a great first experience is the most important thing. JP works to understand and deliver, especially with young fishermen. The joy in Ian’s face as he landed his first Sailfish, watching Genie working his sail as it launched itself airborne; these are truly precious memories that last a lifetime. Carlos and JP delivers this kind of memorable experience with no hassle - you tell them what you want, and they advise ou on how to get that kind of experience the best way possible for the fishing conditions then and there. Check out their fishing reports to target the species you want a first with. Enjoy the pictures; they say it best if you can't be there yourself!

“3 days of great fishing!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2012

We did 3 days of fishing. July 13, 14 and 15th. Day 1 We caught a sail and 5 wahoo. Day 2 we caught a bigger sail, 3 small yellowfin tuna and a 30+ lbs amberjack. Day three another sail and we had another sail hit our live baits when we were bottom fishing but missed it almost jumped in the boat lol, then we caught a 10 lbs snapper. All in all we caught a bill and some food each day what more could you ask for....Eric & Roy are very experienced fisherman and are working the entire time trying to put you on to a fish. Even when Roy is making lunch he is the first one ready on the rods lol. I need to come back next time with them to catch some rooster fish as I hear it is a blast..

Tight lines Eric and Roy

“Mahi Mahi and Sailfish...Excellent Day!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2012

June 20,2012
My wife and I went out for a 3/4 day trip. The crew Roy and Eric were amazing and they knew exactly what they were doing. Our first fish was a 56 in Mahi Mahi, which put up a killer fight. We then landed to others that were pretty good sized as well. Just before the day came to an end, we landed an 8 foot Sailfish. It jumped 7 times!!! We do a lot of offshore fishing off of Cape Cod, but this was by far the best day I have had on the water. Very friendly staff, and a great boat to fish from. If you are in Quepos, you must use JP Sport Fishing!!!
