    This was a fantastic fishing trip. Joshua and Rafael were knowledgeable, extremely friendly and very helpful. We saw humpback whales, stingrays, a huge tortuga and caught plenty of delicious blackfin tuna (16!)

    We also did some snorkeling, and when we returned to the boat, some tuna was prepared along with chips and salsa for a nice lunch. Highly recommended and we will definitely head out with these guys again.

    What a wonderful trip. Thank you Carlos! We took our 9 year old son on the ATV and snorkeling tour. Our son can be skittish about going fast and Carlos made him very comfortable. The secluded beach for snorkeling was amazing. My husband and I agreed that we couldn’t find it on our own in a million years!

    We were a little hesitant, as all the evening trips were booked out. So we went with the morning trip. This was our last day in Costa Rica and it was the perfect and for a perfect trip. Great food, plenty of drinks fantastic crew all we can Asfoor. Thank you so much, Captain Josue, Joy and Guilbre. Loved it all, especially the snorkeling.

The guys were awesome! They brought drinks and snacks for everyone! We also saw hump back whales! Which I was super excited about! Thank you sooo much for the best fishing experience!!!

    This jet ski tour exceeded our expectations by far!! Kevin, our guide took us to an amazing cave and we jumped about 25 ft off a rock! So cool!! All the booking and communication was super easy through WhatsApp! I’m so glad that we added this tour to our vacation here! Thank you best beach concierge! We will definitely book through them next time we visit Costa Rica! Pura Vida!!

    Wanted to learn how to dive with my wife on our honeymoon and was recommended to Jose. Very glad we did...it was amazing. Jose is a really good teacher, made us feel comfortable even though my wife was very nervous. We saw sharks, mantarays at the Catalina islands. Incredible experience, would highly recommend!!

    We've been diving in several countries across Asia, Africa, Americas. Ten reasons why Jose was the best dive experience we've had thus far:
    - He's super calm, regardless of what level you are
    - Offered to pick us up on his way
    - Patient on the boat and in the water
    - Limits his groups to small sizes so it can be an enjoyable experience
    - Very knowledgeable about all sea life
    - Passionate about nature and diving of course
    - Appropriately cautious and safe
    - With Jose we saw two giant manta rays, several white-tipped sharks
    - Last but not least, we also got up close with a whale shark
    - He's generally a super chill guy (we got dinner with him afterwards too)

    Awesome private sailing day! Staff of 3 were excellent: friendly, helpful, knowledgeable, polite. Food and drinks (alcohol and non alcohol) were great and plentiful. Overall, great experience.

    Just spent half a day sailing on the Lazy Lizard II with my family. The crew (Josue, Guilber, and Rene) were great! Rene was an excellent guide for our snorkeling tour. When we finished snorkeling, we enjoyed a delicious meal that the crew prepared for us. If you’re visiting Costa Rica, I highly recommend taking a tour with the Lazy Lizard.

    This was one of my best experiences, great food, plenty of margaritas, and happy people. We went from the El Coco location.

    I have done a ton of sport fishing - from the North Atlantic, Caribbean and Bimini, Gulf of Mexico to the Pacific Ocean and can truly tell you that if you like to fish, boat, or whatever - Capt. Garrett Johnson is your man. Incredibly accommodating and knowledgeable, we got on fish everyday we were out, and even deviated from plan a couple times to maximize the trip. Friendly and professional - Anzuelo Dorado fishing has a client for life.

    On our full day offshore trip, I almost had to tap out due to the tuna actions, and on the ride back in we got two nice Mahi and saw a billfish, as well as a ton of sea life!

    Our half day trip was suppose to be in-shore, exposing my 5 an 7 yr olds to fishing, when we decided to chase some more tuna (and caught several close to shore) then capped the morning with some snorkeling and a family picnic.

    You wont be disappointed, Capt Johnson even let my 7 yr old hang up in the bridge for a little which he still talks about.

    I cant recommend this crew enough!
