Pez Loco is top notch! Fantastic! That’s the best way to describe our experience. The crew was very experienced, helpful and a blast to have out on the water with us. We were on the tuna quickly and caught our fill in what seemed like no time at all. We transitioned to sailfish and marlin for the rest of the day. We had three good marlin hits with two awesome breaches. We were only able to reel one of them in and release; the other two gave us a good fight. The fishing belts and marlin chair on this boat came in handy!!! Excellent set up. While waiting for sailfish and marlin the crew prepared a great Costa Rican typical lunch for us. They also prepared fresh sashimi from our tuna as an appetizer on the way back to the dock. Plenty of refreshments and an air conditioned comfy cabin with microwave, fridge and Bluetooth speaker! The owner, crew and boat made this fishing trip AMAZING! Fish Pez Loco!! It Does not disappoint!

What a great day fishing on Pez Loco. Very professional crew. We caught a huge blue marlin and a bunch of Mahi and Tuna. Which made the best sashimi I have ever had. Can't get any fresher. Ready to go again.

Pez Loco exceeded all expectations. The captain, the crew, the vessel first class. We spent multiple nights sleeping aboard plenty of room, galley full of food, drinks anything we wanted was only a request away. Not to mention the fishing was amazing, after a long day out to sea, it was so relaxing to sit on deck with my buddies with an ice cold beer and hash over the big one that got away, great memories. See you Pez Loco next year!!
