    We were picked up at the beach of playa del coco. They were waiting and took us to the boat. We traveled north and saw many beach and scenery of the land and sea. We were offered drinks and fruit and snacks that were fresh and cool. We stopped at a beautiful beach and had time to snorkel and swim. The crew were fabulous and told us history and answered questions. On the way back we had an added surprise and saw dolphins swimming along side the boat and jumping out of the water.

    Marlin Rayado was referred to us by a friend and was he spot on. Had two boats 7 people and we caught 3 Sailfish 90-100 lbs each, 1 Rooster fish 60 lbs, 5 Mahi Mahi, 2 black tuna and some other small fish. What a half day it was. Everyone caught a fish.

    Then the captain took us by boat to Father Roosters to drop off the fish for dinner before dropping us off on the beach by our Villa.

    These guys know what they are doing! Beyond my expectations.

    We found Enrico from a referral and it worked out perfect. He and his crewman Armondo worked extremely hard to help us get this fish. I know its tough to catch rosters and we got lucky. However, luck can only take you so far and then you must have skill and these guys have the right plan.. Give em a shot maybe you will be as lucky as we where. Oh, we got two roosters!

    It was a great experience! Very safe with kids. Kevin took us to different little beaches, where we did snorkeling and had fun in the beach.
    In our way to the beaches we saw humpback whales🐋, turtles, rays.
    We are definitely coming back.
