First, let me say that Carlos and his team did a great job throughout the entire process of booking and fishing. In particular, before even booking, Carlos worked with my brother and I to find another person to help offset the costs of an all-day fishing trip. We ended up going with Trevor, a young college student from Wisconsin that... More

It was ok, we caught some fish, boat was OK, but nothing special. We ended up releasing 2 sails and had a YF tuna, but it was not IG special.

We started the morning by meeting with Mate Luis and Captain Eric. These guys were awesome. Throughout the day, I had never seen someone run to a fishing pole so fast in my life. They really do their best to make sure if you have something on the end of the line, it will stay there. Overall, great experience and... More

Carlos greeted us both and he boarded them first, on the... More

Could not have asked for a better experience. I fish all over the world and I must say that my experience with JP and her group was fantastic. Her son Carlos was prompt with my reservations and everything went off perfect. My boat captain, Eric, was fantastic and put me on fish all day. His first mate Luis was awesome... More

Without doubt the Best Fishing Charter ..Fishing & Tours are all available at reasonable rates.. The fishing crew's are the best around ask for Chetta great guy... Carry on doing what your doing JP. Have returned 4 times and can't wait for the next trip. It's a long way from Manchester U.K but worth every moment.... Ian.

I worked with Carlos of JP Sport fishing to arrange a 30th Valentines celebration trip for me and my wife. Carlos took care of everything! Transfers to and from the airport, three days fishing, Zip Lines adventure, awesome private guide for the nature park, and excellent personal attention throughout. There is no better source for a fishing trip to Quepos!... More

Best captain and crew ever. They work to get you fish. 3 sails and 1 yellow fin. Great day. The boat is clean and comfortable, good lunch. Above all else, they know how to fish and rig the lines, they make it look easy. Well worth the $$$
