Captain Paco took my wife and me on an amazing trip today. I cannot imagine visiting Puerto Rico again without making this a big part of our trip. His guide services are the best I have seen in 40 years of fishing and we could not be happier with our experience. The only thing better than his personality and professionalism... More

Fished with captain Paco today on peacock trip. One of my friends was a first timer to the sport and the captain had him on the fish instantly, he was really open to helping him with technique and super friendly guy. We had a great time with lots of action.

Captain Paco was an excellent guide! He had us on fish very quickly. He was very patient and accommodating with myself, my husband, and my 5 year old son. NO regrets choosing THIS fishing adventure while in PR. Great family friendly adventure!!

I had my mother, wife, 16 year old son, 13 year old son, my brother and his 21 year old son. Capt. Paco was patient and very accommodating while fishing with my family for peacock bass and tarpon. When we return to PR we will be fishing with Capt. Paco the BEST in PR!!!!

I was in Puerto Rico for three nights on business. Found Paco through Trip Advisor and contacted him about fly-fishing options. Booked an evening of tarpon/snook fishing and a morning of peacock bass fishing. I highly recommend both trips. We squeezed in the saltwater trip my first evening there and my freshwater trip the morning of the day I flew... More

For my first time in Puerto Rico, my BFF took me tarpon fishing. Can't Paco took care of everything for us! He was patient and supportive - and led us right to the fish! It was less than 30 mi Utes before the first strike. He's the tarpon whisperer! I'm left handed, and he even switched the reel for me... More
