We found this operation online while staying near Manuel Antonio Nat'l Park. The booking was fast and easy with good communication. The crew bent over backwards to accommodate our friend's infant, and our two kids. We brought back a sizable catch for our hotel chef to prepare.

Great stuff.

I have fished out of Los Suenos for the last 7 years in February, the high season, for Sails and Marlin with awesome trips each year. So when Cole and Jenny planned their destination wedding in November 2015 in Quepos I was ecstatic because this would be another opportunity to fish in CR. The wedding planner put me in touch with Mandel Valverde whose family owns and operates Reel In Luxury Sport Fishing and from the first email to the last drop off from our second day of fishing it was nothing but an excellent experience. As to the fishing, OFF THE HOOK, we bottom fished offshore and slammed the Red Snappers, Warsaw and Yellowfin Groupers. The Captain kept us on fish all day what a workout fishing in 300 feet of water. We worked up quite an appetite and were treated to a hot lunch of saute chicken, black beans and rice, and a salad. Yes, the Mates cook as well Fish. They were awesome with some of our party that have never offshore fished before. We booked a second day of fishing before we got off the boat from the first trip. The second day of fishing was more of the same except it was just three of us since it was the morning after the wedding a few people didn't make it to the dock. Again, more quality snappers and groupers. These two days were the best bottom fishing trips I have ever been on. If you are in Quepos Reel In Luxury Sport Fishing is who you want to fish with.

I have fished at a lot of resorts and charters over the years and Reel In Luxury Sportfishing is First Class. What they say is what you expect and what they deliver. Four of us went out on the 36 ft. Bertram which was very comfortable and very clean. These guys care about their guests and pay attention to detail. The ride from our Hotel was early (not late) and the crew was ready when we arrived at the boat. Food was excellent, beverages were plentiful and very cold. Crew was friendly and attentive.
I would recommend this to everyone as you will not be disappointed. We will be back!

My buddies and I book this trip as a guy's day get away after one of the group got engaged. The crew was awesome and Captain Oscar got us on the fish early and kept us on them all day. We didn't get any Sailfish or Marlin but that didn't make our trip out exciting and fun. The lunch was superb and the grouper they cooked up for us later was amazing. We caught a MONSTER Snapper and list goes on an on! If your in Manuel Antonio looking to fish...this is the charter for you.

We had two great days of fishing with the Reel In last week. We went offshore one day and inshore on the other. The captain and crew put us on the fish. We went 6 for 8 on sails, which is awesome for this time of year. 5 of the 6 fish were first time sailfish for the anglers. We even got to jump in and swim with the last one before releasing it. The second day of fishing was inshore and we caught exactly what we were targeting. We caught two rooster fish and a jack travelly. The two fish I wanted to catch on my trip to Costa Rica were pacific sailfish and rooster. The awesome crew of Reel In put us on both. Give Mandel a call and book a trip. They are a first class operation.
