I fished with Johnny and Dorian yesterday and it was amazing! I have tried to catch a rooster fish for several years now and had been unsuccessful until yesterday. The guides set up a trolling rig along the rocky and cliffy coast, which was beautiful by itself. Once we heard the buzzing of the reel we all got so excited.... More

Young lady in the office very nice and Chris welcomed us at the dock going and coming in. Dorian and Johnny Cash were a blast... More

Booked a full day trip for Sail Fish. Booked the largest boat they had which is not suitable for off shore trolling. The Panga boats are too narrow, like a large canoe or mullet boat. The crew was very nice though. We saw whales, turtles, dolphin and even a Blue Marlin swim by our boat but no bites. The crew... More

Mr. Hurak, Thank you for going out with us. We have been using this boat for 8 years and it is the largest panga boat in San Juan del sur. Brand new 225 hp engine. We have caught countless sailfish and Marlins in the past. You can find many pictures on our website thru which you booked. I tell my... More

I totally recommend going to sjds. It's a very small neat town, colorful, good restaurants, good party and good beaches. Everything you need! The downside would be getting there given that there's no direct bus from the border with costa rica (peñas Blanca's border). But you can get a bus that leaves you in la virgen for 50 cordobas and...

This is the second year that we visit the beautiful town of San Juan del Sur and that we engage the services of surf instructor Saul and business owner Dario. They have been a delight to deal with. They are not only knowledgeable about surfing they offer a wide range of activities. Prices are sensible, specially taking into account the... More

Excellent guides that adjusted to us using fly rods. Even on a rough day with big swells, we caught plenty of dorado with some big ones, tuna, a giant wahoo, and jumped two sailfish on fly all in one day! Had a blast and would come again in a heartbeat.

Our group of 4 went fishing with Johnny and Dorian and absolutely KILLED it! The boys were great hosts and definitely put us on the fish! They kept the tunes playing and the cold cervezas flowing. We saw lots of sea turtles and got to go for a refreshing dip when we started getting hot. We caught 12 Dorado all... More

We were in town for a week, spent every day with the surf and sport boys. I even called Dario at 6am one morning and wanted surfing lessons for the family. Dario "the Boss" loaded up the surf boards and gave us lessons himself. Luis meet our every need and Dorian and Johnny wore us out catching fish. Can't wait... More
