We have visited Playas del Coco many times but had never explored the area by boat. Nicole and her Captain Jose took us touring and narrated the trip with interesting stories and tidbits about the area. They were both fun to spend time with and knowledgable. Our trip also included an unexpected CLOSE UP whale sighting and a friendly (hungry)... More

We went boating and did a beach BBQ with Papagayo and had a great time. We booked through the owner, Nicole, and took the tour with her captain 'el pelón'. They both were very friendly as easy to work with. The boat is clean and nice and has a bathroom. A definite plus! They took us on a lovely boat... More

One of our friends was leaving back to the States and we decided to give her a goodbye party by having a boat trip. What a pleasant experience it was. Pelon the captain BBQ some chicken for us and they had all kinds of refreshments and goodies. We went snorkeling, a little fishing, sun bathing, gosh! So awesome, so relaxing.... More

Jose is a wonderful captain. Very knowledgeable. They took us on a day trip to a beautiful beach. Monkeys came to try to steal our food, which was cute. We got a once in a lifetime chance to see turtles hatch. And we saw an amazing sunset. Picked us up in Hermosa, which was a plus!

We were in Costa Rica during the holidays and went on a fishing trip with Papagayo Sports. Our captain, Jose was very knowledgeable and spoke english, which we were grateful for. He pointed out mating turtles as well as whales far in the distance that we would never have seen had he not pointed them out! We caught and released... More

Went on a fishing excursion with the owner and 3 friends. We were picked up on the beach in Coco and taken out to the boat where the captain and owner were waiting for us. We trolled around for a few hours and chased the fish but were unsuccessful in catching anything this day. We did get some great snorkeling... More
