I fished with Pilo for 2 days in January. ABSOLUTELY the BEST guiding experience of my life. Having owned a 28 foot Striper on the west coast of Canada I have considerable ocean fishing experience. I highly recommend Pilo, he is the hardest working guide in my experience. He constantly checks and changes baits and knows the waters. We stayed out over 8 hrs on the first day as fishing was slow, but did land a Mahi Mahi after a marlin hit but no hook up. The second day we went further North and just before noon I landed a 80lb 6' sailfish. We then got the heads up on Yellowfin tuna and headed over where I landed 4 in just over an hour. Pilo's equipment and boat are excellent and well maintained, I will be heading back next year for more. Tell him "cheaper to keep her" sent you!

Had an amazing time on a snorkel tour with Pilo! His bigger boat, the Pocamaxtili, was incredibly comfortable and had a restroom if needed. Pilo and his nephew were very friendly and attentive. Itinerary was customized to the group’s wants. Snorkel spots he took us to weren’t crowded and you could see lots of wildlife - fish, sea spiders, turtles and more!

Tour was overall a great value compared to others and Pilo was easy to book via email/whatsapp. Be ready to pay in cash and bring extra for beach side lunch and snorkel gear rental (if needed).

What an amazing experience! Pilo and his nephew were consummate hosts. They happily accommodated all our requests, and went out of their way to show us the bays exactly how we wanted to see them. Chalen (the nephew) was also amazing! He guided us while snorkeling with IMPRESSIVE swimming/fish charming/turtle spotting and extremely safety conscious attention. He is a talented fisherman, and helped both my teens catch some impressive (and delicious) tuna, which he then cleaned and filleted for us. The boat is kept in fastidious condition, and you are made welcome to move around freely. We spotted whales, a manta ray, and lots of turtles on our tour. My 13 year old's words: "That was our best day so far!"

Pilo always delivers a memorable day, whether it's sport fishing, bottom fishing, or bay touring. Great personality, customer service, speaks good English, and has a great sense of humor.

And, he loves to catch fish. It shows in his quality gear, his attention to detail, and his constant fine-tuning of lures, location, etc. I've fished with Pilo over the past 6 years and never had a day that was less than awesome. This trip, he and I fished 3 days in his smaller panga, "The Black Pearl", and we caught too many dorado to count as well as four big sailfish.

Go fish with Pilo; you'll be glad you did.

Fished three days with Pilo and everyday was different/awesome, I fished with many guides in different locals throughout mexico and you wont find a harder working guide. He wants to catch fish as much as you do. Good equipment and knowledge.

Pilo is the BEST captain in town. We caught over 5 fish - 2 Mahi and 3 sailfish. He came to our home and cooked the fish afterwards with his wife and mother. If you are in the area, don’t make a mistake and book another ONLY BOOK WITH PILO. He treats his clients like family and is one of a kind. I will be coming back every year to fish with him. He is the number 1 guide in town.

Pilo was incredible. He got us a marlin and a mahi and then had his mother and wife come and cook a meal for us. 11/10!

I reached out to Pilo prior to leaving on our trip, he contacted me after we were there to confirm our preferred date and excursion.
We bookwd for a day of bay tours, snorkeling and looking for turtles, whales, dolphins etc.
Polo met us at the marina on time and ready to go, with everything we needed. Prior to leaving he confirmed we were equipped with snorkel gear and sunscreen. His cooler was full with beverages on ice. He took us out where we saw a LOT of turtles and lucked upon a school of dolphins that entertained us for we a long time. He then took us to a snorkelling site where he joined us while showing us where to go and pointed out a njmber of different fish, a ray on the bottom of the ocean even retrieved a puffer fish for us to see up close, then released him?
He then took us to a number of bays and told us about them, then off to a restaurant for lunch which was amazing. After lunch, we headed out to return to the marina, on the way there a few interesting stops, man in the rocks and a blow hole.
I would highly recommend Pilo for a great day, whether fishing, snorkeling or simply touring, he cares about his guests and takes pride in the experience.
Thank You Pilo, we will see you again!
