I Do Not Recommend These Guys
This was backdated after my trip
So I booked another trip to Costa Rica for a fishing trip. Despite only booking one day out fishing I was pretty excited. What I found out was that these guys at Pez Rey totally disappointed me!
I'll let you be the judge and if you want to book them great, if not atleast you will know how my experience was. I travel all over and use many guides so there can be good days and bad but when you don't even get to fish that's never good. Pepsi was actually a nice guy and grew up in the area, the operation itself was one I was not pleased with at all.
Here's how my experience was for a 6 hour fishing day planned:
-Outfitter ignored my emails for weeks on setting our day and what they provide, he said their internet was down (despite there being many Internet cafes in the area)
-His dog rode in the car and scratched up my girfriend pretty good jumping all over
-We sat there bored for 4 hours looking for bait (I fly fish?)and never got to even touch a rod??
-I fly fish and only got to cast a fly rod for 5 minutes, that was with a rusted out fly nonetheless
-My guide actually casted 2x to Jacks swimming by with a fly rod....wait I don't get to cast to them?
-Nothing like getting his last email about catching a ton of Roosterfish prior to our trip and that they are biting nonstop to get a customer a little ticked off when we don't even get one or a shot at one
-Total fishing time for our 6 hour day was barely an hour and 1/2 and we had perfect weather so that wasn't even an issue!
Make your own decision about your trip but I would have gone with the Panga Zapata Brothers since they pulled up to us and immediately started catching fish right away, plus you get two guides on their boat and they catch some big roosters for what I found out.
