We contacted Charly over the summer about a fishing charter. He was full of information and took our reservation over the phone. If you are in the US he has a local number. We told him what we were interested in and he continuously sent us emails with photos of what was being caught. With all his business going on he always kept in touch via emails. The morning we went fishing Charly met us at the marina. We then met Poncho and Andres who took us out in the boat. These two guys were very professional and worked very hard. We caught lots of fish. We caught a tuna and they cut it up, and served it to us right on the boat. They were willing to do anything for us. We had the best fishing day ever. We brought tuna and Mahi back to the resort for dinner. I can not say enough great things about Poncho and Andres. We will be back next year and will do it all over again. !!!
You guys are the best!!!
Love from NC!!!

Hi was4wendy,

I'd really appreciate your great Review.
It was nice talking to you at all the time..Thank you for trusting me to organize your fishing trip. Maybe next time we can sign you in for the Local fishing Tournament I told you about it.

Poncho is great friend. He has been working along us for a long time he really loves what he does. Andres loves his work too.
Tuna and mahi-mahi delicious dinner for all! Coming from your hands :)

Next time I can arrange more tours for all of you.

Once again thank you!

Best Regards,

6 hr charter in a 30 ft panga for 6 adults..
Communication with Jonathan was amazing,all ironed out before leaving Canada, captain and mate were awesome, caught a couple little ones but the guys worked very hard to see some bigger action, hooked into 3 but didn’t land them.
Great day ,whales ,sea turtles ,good laughs and conversation. Thanks

Highly recommended Serafin who works at Charly’s. He spent time with us talking through our options and helped us book some great trips. He really goes above and beyond to ensure you have a great time. Even when one of the larger companies tried to charge extra on something Charly’s stepped up. We made sure they did not loose out as they didn’t deserve to be caught out either and we told the large company to repay them. Thank you Serafin for great vacation trips!!

We booked the 3-for-2 package from Serafin, who didn’t use high pressure sales like many places. We were warned not to book through the big corporates, I recommend you listen to their advice and get yourself a great adventure (or three)!

Their team went above and beyond on several occasions including resolving our dispute with Vallarta Adventures, and made sure we got some great memories on our vacation.

5+ stars, thanks guys, Feliz Navidad!

We were glad to assist you in this matter. Just like you said: Memories, good memories are good :)
As our slogan says:

Might I add that this effort was complete with the help of Vallarta Adventures when they noticed we wanted to do our best for you.

First time we used Charly's. Jose (left handed) was our captain and Undress was our deck hand. What a great duo! Very professional and went over and beyond to make our trip fun and memorable. Lots of fish caught and lots of fun had. We can hardly wait to come back.
