"World Class Family Adventure! We took our kids (ages 5 & 3) on the Marine Adventure. It was the highlight of our trip to Peninsula Papagayo."

"We had an amazing time on this fishing charter. The entire crew was very professional, friendly, and helpful. I would highly recommend taking at least a full day fishing with El Jefe!"

"Highly recomend this trip if its your family with young ones or even adult couples. The staff was incredible. Willie and Ugo were awesome deckhands and Captain Jesus was first class."

"I want you to know fishing with El Jefe will ruin you! Their service is second to none. The captain navigated choppy seas all the while we are catching fish. Sailfish, Bonito, Yellow fin tuna, and best of all a 350+ lb black marlin which we released for the next lucky fisherman!"

"We had a great fishing experience. The captain and crew are amazing. The crew was always adjusting the lines, changing bait, etc. Everyone on our trip had an amazing catch. ...This was our favorite Costa Rica excursion."
