My 17-year-old son and I went fishing with Mauricio and his crew. It was a beautiful day out on the water and the fresh sushi that the crew made with our freshly caught tuna was amazing. My son wanted to go spearfishing and the crew made that happen. It was a great trip!

I have fished in many places and have caught many species but never have I had a trip like this in my life!! Let me start out by saying that Capt. Mauricio and mate Coachay have everything setup from the time you get on the boat till the end of the trip! There knowledge of the local waters is second to none! We fished for two whole days and I'm attaching a few photos of the trip below. The crew speaks english very well and will suggest what target fish you should be trying for the day but if your set on one species then they will also do that as well. We where able to fish for mahi-mahi, yellowfin tuna, roosterfish and also jigged up some dogtooth tuna which by the way taste great and very good fighters on day one and on day 2 we went for roosterfish as our only target fish and landed several up to 20 pounds and several bonita on poppers also. The trips where the best I have ever did and we had 3 guys on the boat with plenty of room and shade. It was our first trip to CR but I can say we will be back for more to fish with Papagayo Gulf Sport Fishing - North Pacific Tours and there wonderful crew! Don Canyon Reels

Captain Mauricio and his crew were awesome. They picked us up on the beach of the Secrets Resort so we did not have to drive to meet them at a marina. Their prices were a bit cheaper than the big charters that spend a bunch of money on marketing, and they are well review on fishing blogs. My wife and I had an amazing day of fishing as we caught a really nice Sailfish and a good Rooster. I felt they fished really hard in order to make the trip outstanding.

We had such a great time we decided to book a second day. Crew & captain made it very memorable. They prepared freshly caught fish right there for us.

Almost hate to write a review here as i want to be able to fish with Mauricio every time in am in CR. We started out fishing for bait. Got a bunch and also snagged a yellow belly sea snake. Very poisonous. Captain took us to a couple places and we did well. Grouper, Bonita, pompano, and two nice yellow fin tuna. The crew was great. Excellent half day of fishing. Will make the trip again just to fish!

Captain Mauricio is Papagayo's best-kept secret, so I understand your reluctance to share your secret. It's like when you have that secret fishing spot you don't want anyone to know about; Captain Mauricio is that secret. Be sure to book in advance the next time you're coming down to fish because Tourism IS picking up, and we'll get as busy as we once were pre-covid. Many of our repeat clients have been fishing with us since we began our fishing charters in 2006, and we look forward to your next trip out with us. ~Pura Vida~ Lisa
