Few places in the world can match the splendor of a trip to Costa Rica.  Kent and his crew took our trip “off the chart”.  The Sailfishing far exceeded our expectations and the “land crew” including Karen and Carolina did so as well.  Can’t wait for our next trip back!

Thanks for a great time!  Carolina took great care of us.   We experienced excellent fishing with JC/Henry and landed over 20 sails in three days.  Jaco was fun as was all the resort entertainment.

Hope to be back next year!!

Thank you so much for the wonderful accommodations.  It was nice to come back to a comfortable place after fishing all day.  We caught several sails and dinner, a yellowfin tuna.   JC and Henry were wonderful.  Carolina was also great, able to answer all our questions and coordinate transportation.

We had a great time here!  Fishing was awesome.   We caught dolphin, wahoo, sailfish—lots of them.  We enjoyed zip line and white water rafting.  Had fun shopping and eating in Jaco. 


The resort is beautiful.  We also can’t wait to come back again.   JC, Henry, Carolina and Alonzo were very nice and helpful.  They made our tip much more enjoyable.  Your condo is very nice and feels like home.

What a great family vacation!  The house was quite comfortable and homey, complete with every possible amenity.  Everywhere we ate was very tasty.  Surfed at Playa Jaco and Playa Esterillos.


The fishing was great!  Capt. JC and Henry worked very hard and found the fish.  We caught dozens of Mahi, everyone caught at least 6, and 2 wahoo.


We all really enjoyed the boat and fishing.  Capt. JC’s music was very enjoyable while cranking in the fish!  All in all a really rad trip!!!

This was our 1st trip to Costa Rica and we found it to be as beautiful as it was exciting.

We fished for 2 ½ days.  JC and Henry were great!

The beach club is beautiful.

We all agreed that our favorite activity was the whitewater rafting trip down the Savagre River.  We had a blast!


Many thanks to Carolina for scheduling everything for us.  We didn’t have to worry with anything  -- just enjoy ourselves.  Thanks to Chino, JC and Henry, Also.  Everyone was so nice.


Thank you Kent and Laura for providing such a beautiful condo.  We felt right at home.

We had a really great time.  The Condo is amazing and Costa Rica is absolutely beautiful.  We had a fantastic time fishing with JC & Henry.  We caught a few Mahi, Tuna, Rooster fish and a 290 lb Marlin.  While we were “off shore” we swam with a pod of at least 200 dolphin.

We had a fabulous week.

We were lucky to spend a week in this piece of paradise. First visit to Costa…hope not the last.  Reeling in a marlin was reminiscent of Santiago.  Swimming with 400 dolphin was one of life’s finer moments.  The Arenal volcano treated us to warm waters & a relaxing afternoon.  Fresh caught tuna sashimi on the boat is hard to beat.  Thanks for the beautiful condo – a great home base!  Hope to come back some day.

Pura Vida!

Seven days in Paradise.  Los Suenos has got to be the best that Costa Rica has to offer.  All was great – and then there is the fishing.  We cannot say enough good things about Captain JC and mate Henry.  We were so successful thanks to them. We also used the boat for site seeing.  It was a great tour by water, stopped for lunch at Turtle Island.  Fishing the next day gave us 3 sailfish and 17 tuna. Thanks Kent and Laura.

FISHING!  JC and Henry were awesome.  We caught 11 for 18 sailfish, 1 for 2 mahi and 1 yellowfin.  White water rafting for a day (Carolina was awesome at coordinating for us).  Relaxing at the beach club pool.

First day of fishing – started slow but about 10:45 found “pod” of fish and ended up with 12 tuna – ranging 30-45 lbs.  Great time with JC and Alex.


Went out 30 miles to the school of dolphin (pod).  Pulled in tuna (35-45 lb range) for hours.  Played with last fish for 3 hours 45 minutes and had him to boat.  I gaffed him but he tore the gaff out of my hand; broke rod & line and we lost him.  180 lbs or more.  Great fun but all worked him & were exhausted.  GREAT TIME!!!

Thanks to all!

I wish I could stay here another month, I loved everything about this place.  The condo is really nice along with the boat.

Wow!  What a trip!  Carolina was great with all our plans!  JC was Great!  Zip line was terrific!  Booze cruise with JC to a beautiful island.  River rafting in Quepos was amazing fun.  Waterfalls and mountains were breath-taking.  JC threw in a bonus Spanish lesson!  Words we will never forget and probably shouldn’t use.

What a Great Trip!!!  Everywhere we went here in Costa Rica was an adventure.  The trip from the airport started the trip off the right way with Chino and Carolina taking us the long way to the condo.  On our drive we saw tons of wildlife including macaws, toucans, iguanas and we ever made a pit stop and saw some huge crocks.  What a great start!!!


Day Two; The zipline is well worth every penny.  Day three; the fun just kept on coming.  JC and Alex are topnotch and the fact that JC knows and practically owns these waters is a huge asset for this vacation.  JC would make a great Florida Guide.  34 ft Venture vs. 60+ ft sportfishers, JC claimed his waters and showed those big timers what the SailsCall was all about.

This was the best trip our family has ever been on.  Greece, the Bahamas, Aruba, Canada has nothing on this.


Thanks Kent, the CCA, Costa Rica, JC, Alex, Chino, Carolina.

Feb. 2006-March 2009



I just want to let you know you have a first class operation. We were in your condo June 16-22. J.C. is one of the nicest people I have ever been around. He treated us like gold. And on top of that we caught fish. It was my first time to see a Sailfish. We live in Louisiana and get to do a lot of fishing. Especially Yellowfin Tuna and a lot of trout and redfish.

Everything was in immaculate condition and ready to fish when we arrived. I was really impressed at the fact when we got out to fish there was no prep time, he had everything ready.

Now, Carolina is after my heart. She treated us to one of the best times we have ever had. Everything was perfect. We were picked up at the time she told us for everything we did. I can't say enough about both of them.

Thanks very much for such a wonderful trip. We will be back!
John S., Baton Rouge, Louisiana  June 16-22, 2007


    Our trip was incredible!  The first billfish for the four of us from Naples, Fl.  Carolina & Tommy were a great start to our trip.  Carolina was very personable and made us feel very welcome in Costa Rica.  You have a beautiful condo, we felt so at home for the week.  Thank you!  22 Sailfish released!

     JC and Cali were the best!  We all caught our fair share of billfish and they kept us laughing and entertained during our days on the water.  We will go home with many memories and great laughs from our dream trip. 

 Denny, Amy, James, Martin, and Jenny, Naples, FL  Feb. 17-22, 2007



     Wow!  Our time is over.  Hard to leave.  The fishing was awesome.  JC and Cali were really super people.  The scenery and foliage are gorgeous... like UTOPIA!!!

     We are taking home lots of pictures of the beauty of the ocean, mountains, volcano, flowers, etc., etc.  WE ALL LOVE COSTA RICA & WILL BE BACK!


42 for 64 Sails

1 for 2 Marlin

2 for 2 Dorado

0 for 1 Wahoo

  I just want to tell you what a great honeymoon Sarah and I had.  The fishing, food, condo, fishing and company were all fantastic.  We were very happy with the fishing action and really had a good time with JC.  On our off days we went to Tortuga Island, did a zip line tour and hiked Manuel Antonio.  We had a great time and can’t wait to go back.  You’ve got a great set up down there.

    17 Sailfish, 0 for 1 on Marlin (lots of cool jumps!)

      4 Yellowfin tuna

      4 Wahoo

      1 Dorado

     3 days fishing

Greg & Sarah, Tampa, FL  Jul. 29- Aug. 4, 2007



We had the most amazing time in Costa Rica. For starters, Carolina was a breath of fresh air from when we landed until we said goodbye. She was so helpful and prompt with everything.  I felt like there was nothing I couldn't ask her for.   She is a beautiful person.


The condo was so comfortable and fun to hang out at... from watching the birds and iguanas in the trees to cooking in the kitchen, totally first class.


Day 1: We dropped all the lines and within minutes bam! we were hooked up. I was up first and we knew it was a Blue Marlin when it jumped out of the water. I couldn't believe I was reeling in a 225 pound Blue Marlin on my first hook up. I got it close 3 times.  It kept running, finally I had to give it to my husband Jonathan; he landed it after a total 2 hour fight.


J. C. was awesome and worked really hard at helping us land the fish. Along with Henry driving and keeping the fish from running away. Within 20 minutes J.C. spotted dolphins everywhere, thousands of them. We hurried up and ran to them, they were herding Tuna and we wanted to get some. We pulled in 4 and lost 2.   It was a blast but we were worn out and ready for a cocktail or two.


On the third day we dropped 3 lines and right away we had a 42 pound Mahi Mahi. What a beautiful fish... it fought like a bull.


J.C. is the most knowledgeable and funniest Capt. I've ever fished with.  He made all of us feel comfortable and secure with anything we did on the water. And Henry was awesome at helping us too. Here are some great photos of us having the time of our lives.  I am saving up for my next trip to visit J.C. and the crew in Costa Rica;  thank you so much for the best vacation ever. 

Shawn M.  New Orleans, LA  Sep. 29-Oct. 4, 2007



I have attached some of the photos that we took while we were fishing. For the off season we did really well and had plenty of action. We had such an amazing time with JC and Kali. They honestly made the fishing so much fun and they were both very informative. We learned so much about your technique for billfishing, about the culture of Costa Rica, and we even worked on our Spanish too.


Thanks Again. I look forward to returning!!!

  When you met us at the grocery store on our way in, we knew you were doing everything you could for us to enjoy our visit.  Your home is very elegant and yet simple for all to enjoy.

     We enjoyed the fishing, horseback riding, ATVs, but most of all just relaxing by the pools!  Thanks for sharing your home with us!

     Mitch & Donna, Terry, Mitch & Lainey, Mitchie, John & Lindsay, Cape Coral, FL  Apr. 6-12, 2007



     We enjoyed the condo and the wildlife in the large tree outside!  The condo is lovely and we enjoyed relaxing times here.  Manuel Antonio was wonderful and so was the Kayak & snorkeling trip arranged by Tommy's wife- Carolina.  She was a great help.

     Food at the El Pelicano was marvelous, as was the view.

     Sandy & Jim, Tampa Bay, FL  Apr. 21-26, 2007



     Another wonderful vacation has come to an end.  The fishing has been great... 67 sailfish bites and 1 Blue Marlin.  The ocean here is alive with all types of animals.

     JC is a wonderful asset to your fishing team and we enjoyed all the lessons for fishing.  Great time.

     Don & crew, Jupiter, FL  Feb. 4-10, 2006



     We had a wonderful time.  Fishing is outstanding... caught sailfish, dolphin, snapper and a rooster fish.  Had a "few" beers, rums and enjoyed dinner with JC, Marcella and Joel in Jaco.

     Dick (father), Raleigh, NC, (sons) Kevin, Lake Zurich, FL and Ken, Jacksonville, FL   Mar. 11-16, 2006



Many thanks to you Caro, JC and the others for a fantastic trip to Costa Rica.  Everything from the accommodations to the fishing far exceeded our expectations. Count me in for another trip and any referral you may need.  Regards, 

Todd C.  July 2008



We had a great time down at your place in Los Suenos. Your condo is great as well as your boat. That boat is a Cadillac ride. Carolina was great. She was so much help with any information, the airport transportation and lining up the canopy tour.


JC and Henry were great on the boat. They were able to put us on the fish despite some tough fishing. Eric caught his first Sailfish. The rooster fish and the Corvina were firsts for everybody. Everyone is looking forward to coming back down in the future. 


DAY 1

14 Yellowfin Tuna (20 - 50 pounds)


Day 2

2 Rooster fish

2 Corvina

1 Jack


Day 3

2 Sailfish (approximately 180 and 120 pounds)

1 additional Sailfish raised but no bite


Thanks for everything.

Javier M. and Alex R.   New Orleans, LA  Oct 5, 2007



What an awesome week!  Wish the week could have been a month.  We can't wait to return to Costa Rica.  Your condo was great for our group... very comfortable and we love your staff (Carolina, Tommy, JC and Henry).  They treated us wonderfully and we loved all of them.  Our fishing was incredible:

1 Blue Marlin, tunas and mahi mahi.


We are buying this trip again next year.  Loved it, Loved it, Loved it !!!


JC: Thank you, especially for the 250 lb. Blue Marlin!

Shawn & Jonathan M., Debbie & Robert G., New Orleans, LA  Oct. 5, 2007

Ross & Cathi T., Tommy & Marylu S.,  Monroe LA  Nov. 9, 2007



What an amazing trip!  Los Suenos is truly appropriate- "The Dreams!"


We have loved our Costa Rican Adventure:  Sportfishing, Canopy Zipline tour, Whitewater rafting, constant excitement!


The fishing was incredible!  We caught everything in the ocean:  Marlin , Sailfish, Dorado & Yellowfin Tuna.


None of this would have been possible without the caring detail & planning from Carolina!  Thank you for the fantastic memories, we can't wait to return!

Fred, Jeanette, Bill & Laura P.  Melbourne, FL  December 7, 2007



This was the first family vacation we have ever had.


Christmas Eve dinner at Villa Caletas was wonderful... service & food were great.  The view was spectacular.


Zip Line- WOW!  4-wheelers: We went to the top of the highest mountain to see all of Costa Rica...and the drive down was a ride to remember.


Carolina was a charm.   It was pleasant to make a phone call and it happened.  (She is a doer...Jim really appreciated that.)


JC and Henry:  Not only great fishermen...but very good people.  Jaclyn caught her 140lb sailfish and said she couldn't have been able to do it without Henry.  He gave her the support she needed to continue.


Jim was the last to catch his 300 lb Marlin... what a rush he had!


I caught my first Sailfish and Cole caught a 350 lb Marlin and our Mahi Mahi dinner.  We will be forever talking about this trip.


Thanks for the memories!

Jim & Joanne M., Jacklyn & Cole C., Mike A.,  N. Palm Beach, Fl  Dec. 22, 2007



We had a great time fishing with JC & Henry.  JC is a very knowledgeable captain and Henry is a perfect complement as mate.  Both of them make every day of fishing a great experience.


We caught multiple sails every day and raised at least 1 Marlin 4 of 5 days of fishing, landing 2 over 500 lbs.


Condo was great and every bit of your advice on places to eat was dead on!

Mark D., Slidell, LA  Jan. 18, 2008



We had a blast!!!


JC & Henry are the best.  They make you feel like part of a team, not just a customer.


I caught the biggest fish of my life and learned a lot.  And the boat was great!

Matt D., LaPorte, TX   Jan. 18, 2008



Now I need to work on getting back here!  This was undoubtedly the best vacation ever.  Wish I would have stayed an extra day.


JC & Henry made the fishing trip very enjoyable and taught me so much about trolling.


"Hook your own fish!"  It makes the experience.  You'll have plenty of chances!


"Pollo Cripsy" is the bomb.  Get some fried chicken and put in fridge for taking out on the boat.

Matt B.  St. Amant, LA  Jan. 18, 2008



By far this was the BEST vacation of our lives!


We have been here 6 days, fished 4 days.


Caught 7 Dorado- 1 @55 lbs.

5 Yellowfin Tuna

Raised 36 Sailfish, Boated 24

1 Marlin


Very, very impressed by JC and Henry.  Carolina was also awesome.


We have thoroughly enjoyed our stay in your beautiful condo.  We will definitely be back to continue to enjoy the country.  The zip line was fun, and we enjoyed the family of raccoons out back.

Bobbi D. & Family  Punta Gorda FL  Feb. 1, 2008



Great time... Beautiful place... Gracious people... Fantastic fishery.


Boat, JC & Henry are the best.  We fished four days & landed a triple-header of sailfish the last day.

8 Yellowfin tuna


A vacation in paradise!

Sam T., Madison, NC  Feb. 22, 2008

Blue Marlin     1

Mahi Mahi      8


We also had a Grand Slam!

Mike S., Mechanicsville, VA  Feb. 23-29, 2008

What a memorable trip!  The weather, the sunsets, the amenities ...I could go and on.  We enjoyed 3 full days of fishing ~ 2 out about 25 miles and the third day inshore.  Caught about 7 sailfish approx 130 lb. 3 dorado ~ great dinners grilling by the pool.  ~ 2 jacks, 2 roosters, 1 humpfish and 1 trigger.  JC and Henry were very accommodating and wonderful.  We loved "The Hook Up" and the serene pool/beach at the Marriott.  I got a Poseidon facial at the Marriott outside in a cabana ~ to die for.  Visited Jaco ~ neat shops and interesting ticos! :-) 


We also did the Manuel Antonio National Park tour.  Monkeys galore.  Fantastic tour guide, Sergio with Jaguar Riders Co.  Restaurants were delicious.  We all 4 took away money at the Marriott Casino ~ small, but winning $ is great. 


Carolina was wonderful, the grounds staff, and resort staff were all very friendly and helpful. No matter what other adventures we take in the rest of the world, Los Suenos will have a place dear in our hearts.  The whole week was breathtaking and relaxing ~ exactly what we all wanted!  We will be back, until then...Ciao --

Wonderful time had by all.  Everything was great.  The weather was perfect.  Had 3 days of fishing, 2 days offshore, 1 inshore.  JC & Henry are the best.  Caught some awesome fish, Sailfish, rooster, tuna, dorado.

We rode horses on the beach, a dream come true.

This has been the trip of our life.

Our quest was to spend many enjoyable hours in a tropical environment away from our stressful jobs, 31 degree temperatures and to CATCH FISH!  We are experienced angles and have been fishing in Costa Rica since 2-3-02, at Quepos, type of fish quested are sailfish, marlin, tun, wahoo, dolphin,  We saw sailfish jump 4 feet out of the water and enjoyed the spinner dolphin show. 


2/1/09 -  0845 activity in the baits, no hook up. 10:58 Wahoo up to the boat, bit line & escaped-- his lucky day.   1:58 Sailfish caught when listening to Captain JC's hip hop music.  Our son’s first sailfish, which is worth the trip in itself.  3:15 pm  We call it a fun relaxing day.


2/3/09 0900 Sailfish - Ben hooked the fish and graciously let me catch and release him quickly - Thanks Ben !!!

1125 - Dolphin Ben caught supper - thanks again Ben.  It was delicious!

140 pm - Will caught his second sail - quickly caught & released.


2/4/09 Exploration of the premises & a  great lobster feast in Jaco -- I cooked a great breakfast and we had Caro join us.  All the Costa Rica natives are friendly and our son Will speaks fluent Spanish, a real plus.

I fed the animals, 3 raccoons every evening and gave them fresh water.  Adorable. 

The boys smoked cigars & I star gazed.  The moon was 1/2 full, perhaps the fish are feeding at night & siesta-ing during the day, that is why the fishing was slow.  


We met 20 guys from Philadelphia, PA & had a great time swimming at pool side and getting to know them--They are delightful.

What an amazing week!  Spectacular scenery!  Awesome fishing!  7 sails in 2 days!  JC & Henry were great.  They not only gave us 2 days of fantastic fishing, but we spent 1 day visiting some beautiful beaches that were only accessible by boat.  We will definitely come back again.  Thanks to Kent for the lovely accommodations.

Thanks again!

Excellent time had by all.  Good fishing for sails

Day 1 - 1 for 5 slow!

Day 2 10 for 20!!! great

Day 3 8/15 again great.

JC & Henry were great. They know their stuff.  Great tours of canopy zip lines a blast and saw rare Paso turkeys in the trees.  Great shopping at Jaco, Villa Caletas, M.A. etc.


Manuel Antonio and tours were great in Quepos.  Had the dinner to die for at Villa Caletas Zephyr Palace.  Fabulous food, incredible views and gorgeous setting.   Highly recommended you have a private dinner at Zephyr Palace -- well worth the money.  We all hope to be back again.  God and the economy willing!

The accommodations were great.  The fishing was good and the food was wonderful.  This place is better than Hawaii.  I'd definitely come back again and bring my wife,  JC and Henry were very good and friendly, which makes the fishing experience more enjoyable.

What a great trip!!  Unbelievable fishing, accommodations, food & tours!  JC and Henry were the best!  I caught my first sailfish aboard the "SailsCall" thanks to them and Kent.  They were very patient, funny, respectful and just all round great people.  Los Suenos resort is everything you hear about and more!  Kent runs a 1st class operation.  I cannot wait until my next trip in September.  Too bad we have to leave.  Thanks to Kent, Laura, JC and Henry for such an awesome experience.
