Owner description: COSTA RICA DREAMS SPORTFISHING is the 5 STAR, EXCLUSIVE charter company at the famous Los Suenos Resort and Marina near Jaco Beach. We are the largest owner/operator in Costa Rica offering fishing packages for fishing charters, tortuga island tours, condos and transportation. Fish aboard one of our first class fishing boats from 32' to 50' yachts. We are NOT just a "booking agent".....we actually OWN the boats and the Full Time crews (Captains & Mates) are our permanent employees. All with first class customer service!

My father and I booked a fishing trip including accommodations.The condo was really big with everything there that you possible need. great location and fantastic view. Excellent.
Now the fishing....,.We have been big game fishing for a long time. I have seen quite a few operations. This one however is from another world. Never have I seen such a fanatic and excellent crew. We booked the Cabo 35 "Sweet Dreams " with captain Rudy. It's unbelievable how those guys work the lines, find the fish and handle the boat. I don't think I will ever experience anything better than this. I can go on and on and on...about the lunch, the sushi that Estaban made for us from the Mahi that we caught, the 21 sailfish that we released in 2 days etc etc. Bottom line is: If you want to spoil yourself with the best fishing experience you can imagine., don't hesitate.
We will come back next year!

We went fishing two days in a row with this amazing company! I can't say enough good things about them! First day we went 10/14 on pacific sailfish and the second day we went 14/17 on pacific sailfish. We jumped in the water and swam with them also. The whole crew was amazing and talked to you. They really made you feel comfortable! Carlos our mate was so entertaining he was the only reason we ended up getting the bigger boat he was on. When we walked down the dock he stopped what he was doing and talked to
Us. He was telling us how fishing had been and the great boats this company has but he was not trying to hassle us. He was so professional and I know he will be a great captain one day soon I hope. The memories we made will never be forgotten.

Dave and his crew really took care of us! We were fortunate we scheduled our trip during one of the premier years of fishing there. From the boat to the crew, everything was top notch!! Never will forget that day of fishing! Highly recommend this to anyone.

We booked and paid for an excursion for Saturday March 1, 2014. The driver never showed and we were left hanging for an hour and no phone call. They refunded our money but didn't even offer an alternative. They either don't care or don't have the resources but either way, it was our problem not theirs. Don't rely on them but find yourself another alternative because they won't.

We have no idea who this is and has nothing to do with our business of fishing charters and packages. They say it's for an "excursion" and don't even say what they are talking about. This isn't our customer and have no idea why this is posted to our page. TripAdvisor just ignores our request to remove it. We are Costa Rica "SPORTFISHING" and NOT "Costa Rica Dream MAKERS"..... who they are probably referring to. Dave

We had such an incredible experience in 2012 with Costa Rica Dreams and Capt. Embry we came back again this year (February 2014). Capt. Embry and his best girl Kathy took care of our every need. Everyone was super kind and accommodating. The fishing boat/crew were top notch world class. Over three days of fishing we caught a blue marlin, 62 sailfish (31 in one day) and 3 dolphin. The condo was well appointed and had spectacular views!!! Capt. Embry even handled our local transportation for us - the drivers assigned us took us to and from the airport and chauffeured us on various tours. A favorite restaurant was the Oliver North airplane. The food was incredible and the imagination it took to build the structure was fantastic. Without a doubt the best fishing experience of our lives!!!
