Awesome! Glad you had a good morning out fishing and that the fish cooperated with you. Every day on the Papagayo Gulf is a good day. I'll be sure to pass on the great review with the crew.

Had a great half day trip on the Don Manuel. The staff was friendly and it was a beautiful day. Fishing was a bit slow but we all caught fish and got to see a lot. I'd go back.

The license cost was $15 per person. It is not for one day - I think it covered 7 days (which, if for some reason, your charter were to postpone due to weather - which is rare, you are still covered).
