From Diego smoothly running the on-shore logistics, to Captain Marvin putting us on the fish, to First Mate Juan providing many hook-ups and for his unparalleled hospitality, fishing with Los Monos is a privilege that we look forward to every year! This is our 4th year fishing with them and this year we brought extended family and friends. With a boat load of people we managed to catch 9 yellowfin tuna, 9 sailfish and 1 blue marlin over 2 days. Every trip, the level of service is high, the good spirts are endless and there is fun to be had for everyone on board. The passion that Juan and Marvin have for providing their guests an amazing experience is unmatched. We can't wait until our trip next year! Pura Vida!

I've fished on the Monkeyshine on two separate occasions. The first in January of 2019 and the second in early March of 2020. Both trips were great experiences. They staff their boat with professional and friendly crew members that enjoy catching fish as much as their customers do. Our most recent charter ended with at least 8 released sailfish... We lost count with all of the fun we were having and I make that guess based on my review of GoPro footage. First Mate Juan started the trip with a good safety briefing and answered all our questions. The mates also gave my wife, who has limited fishing experience some good pointers on how to fight fish, manage line, etc. Their hot lunch and snacks were among the best that I've had on a charter boat. The whole 3-man crew was attentive and friendly throughout the entire day and even shared some of the pictures they took after the trip. I've chartered many sportfishing boats in places like Los Cabos, Kona and others in Costa Rica. I would rate my experience with Los Monos somewhere at the top among them all. I've never caught more billfish in a day with any other charter service, regardless of location.

It is with regret that I give Diego and his boat, "monkey shine" 5 STARS. By that I mean, it will make it a little harder to book next year due to it's inevitable growing popularity. The boat and the crew were AMAZING! We had such a fantastic time for our two days out, the crew did such a fabulous job, thank you. Diego also set us up in a fantastic location. He was born locally, raised locally and promotes locally. His business is tourism and he does it so well, you can see his passion for the community and his long term goals for the preservation of the environment and positive tourism. The day trip was fantastic, we were provided a midmorning fresh fruit snack which was delicious and then a fantastic lunch. Pack sunscreen and a sun hat.

Well, once again the Los Monos Sportfishing crew did NOT disappoint! These guys start well before you arrive, and DO NOT STOP all day...and the results show! My wifes first offshore trip...our goal was her first sailfish...not only did she catch a sailfish, but mahi mahi and tuna as well...such an outstanding trip we booked a second day before we had to return home. As always, Diego (aka Mr Clean) was there to help with any of our needs during the entire trip...can never thank him and his staff enough. Thanks to the entire Los Monos Sportfishing crew and the Casa Los Monos staff for another trip of a lifetime!

Just had the pleasure of returning from Costa Rica where one of the high lights of my trip was the beautiful Sunset Cruise hosted by Los Monos Sportfishing. It started with a friendly greeting from the experienced staff at the marina and ended with the prettiest sunset I have ever witnessed. Once on board we were offered champagne and snacks including a cheese board. We comfortably sailed along the coast taking stunning pictures along the way. The boat was clean, equipped with a bathroom and plenty of space for everyone to visit and enjoy the whole experience. I highly recommend this tour. It will not disappoint!
