Over Christmas some friends and I travelled to SJDS. We booked a fishing excursion through Dario and it was Fantastic. He was extremely friendly and knowledgable about the area and very easy to get in touch with. The fishing trip was a lot of fun. SJDJ Surf and Sport offers numerous activities, I only wish we would have had more time to take advantage of them. If ever in SJDJ again, we will be sure to book through Dario. thanks again!

“Five Stars!!”
Reviewed January 9, 2013

This was my families first time charter fishing and base on our fantastic experience with San Juan Del Sur Surf and Sport, it will not be our last! Our captain Juan and his son "jr." We're terrific and did a great job to make site it was an adventure to remember. When we arrived to the boat, we were please to find that it had been fully stocked with beverages and great fruit. The boat was very clean and easily fit our group of four. We were very fortunate with the fishing. Everyone in our group pulled in at least two nice sized fish, ranging from barracuda to mackerel. I can't speak highly enough of the guys, the boat and the whole experience. Definitely a must do when in Masachapa!

“Great Fishing Trip”
Reviewed January 7, 2013

Dario and his guys took good care of us from the beginning with good communication and a great attitude. Everything went as planned from the moment we got to the shop and when we were tired of cathing fish (yes, we got tired of catching fish there were so many), Captain Louis pulled us up to a beach to swim and hang out the rest of the day. What a great experience!

“So well looked after.”
Reviewed November 29, 2012

Did an awesome full day trip out on the water with a group of people..was so impressed with the service Dario provided - he replied straight away to my emails with lots of relevant detailed information and on the day he really made an effort to make people feel comfortable and enjoy themselves on the boat. He told us about the beaches we were visiting, helped people bring in some white tuna that landed on the trolling lines and made some ceviche for us while we were enjoying one of the beaches. He made a stop at Playa Coco for us to have lunch. When we arrived back in town he took the rest of the fish to a restaurant and arranged for them to cook it up for us - this was really doing something extra. I´ll happily recommend him to anyone going to SJDS.

“Lots of fun for a great value”
Reviewed November 28, 2012

Myself and two co-workers traveled to San Juan Del Sur for the first time last week. We had no specific agenda, we just knew we wanted to partake in some activities we either simply can't do in the US, or can't afford to do in the US. Considering it's winter in the US, water sports were our goal.

We were recommended to Dario's shop by our hotel owner and it was easily the best decision we made the entire trip. Not knowing much about what we could do in what time frames, only knowing we had about a day and a half to enjoy, Dario gave us some very helpful direction.

As the day was quickly passing us by, Dario recommended we go surfing for a half day. At a great price, he drove us out there for a few hours of surfing lessons on a massive beach that had a good vibe (good looking chicas) but had enough room we never had any space issues out in the water. After the lessons we had free reign on the boards.

The next day Dario took us out in the morning for a half day of spear-fishing. It was the first time for all of us and we all had a blast. For what we felt was a good price, we even ended up with fish that they sent on to a restaurant to cook for us, which we came back to after another Dario arranged excursion - ATVs up into the mountain to see the Jesus statue and on to a few beaches.

I highly recommended going to Dario for any activity you are looking for in or around San Juan del Sur, because if he doesn't personally offer it, he clearly knows the right people to go to for what you are wanting to do.

I will definitely be back in the near future.
