Our trip was a fishing success with two sailfish and two blue marlins. Not to mention a 60# yellow fin tuna.

We bought the trip at a Ducks Unlimited auction. Liisa and Steve of Go Fish Costa Rica were extremely helpful in all aspects of our trip, including where to get our tuna cyrovaced and where to get a cooler for shipping. SWA didn't even ask what was in the cooler. Hotel Pasatiempo was clean and well appointed. The pool was a joy after a day of fishing. The fishing boat, "Outcast" was great for our two days of fishing. The Captain and First Mate made the fishing fun and easy. Nothing like freshly caught tuna sashimi. A great time was had by all.


Steve and Liisa run a heck of an organized, personalized, and hassle-free operation. The fishing was fantastic - over 2 days: 6 for 18 on sails, 1 for 1 on marlin, plus tuna and mahi-mahi. Great boat. Capt Hiener, and mates Hiener and Carlos worked as hard as any crew we've fished with. Fantastic ATV tour. To sum it up best from our fathers & sons fishing trip: they have our unqualified endorsement, they are there from the minute you arrive and when you leave, they encourage you to ask anything and do not hesitate to ask them about anything or any concerns, ( I suggest you go with their recommendations), - they really mean it when they say they are there for you! A great value with an experience that exceeds expectations. We'll be back!

"Wow" is right. We are so glad you enjoyed your time here and thanks so much for acknowledging all we do for our clients. It was really great to see a father & son trip go as it did and by the sounds of it some lasting memories were made. I know we will see you guy's back again one day and when you do be sure to look us up as we would love put another trip together for you all.

Great fishing trip

We spent 4 nights in Tamarindo with Go Fish. Steve and Liisa were very helpful from the start and spent considerable time making sure we had everything we needed once we arrived. The fishing boat and crew that they paired us with were excellent, and we also spent a great day on an ATV tour which they helped arrange. Overall a great experience and great hosts!

We really appreciate you taking the time to post this review and glad you had fun while visiting us here in Costa Rica.

Best hosts ever!

We had an amazing week in Costa Rica. Steve and Liisa were excellent hosts, they made us feel like family. Simply, they are the best! We will be coming back for sure. Thank you for an unforgettable trip!

We treat people the way we want to be treated as well and if we made you feel like family than we are doing our jobs. Thanks for taking the time to post this review and we sure do hope to see you back again real soon.

Fish On!

I have been fishing with Go Fish since 2010. The very best captains and mates will put you on the fish if possible. After many dorado, tuna, wahoo and an occasional Marlin, and more sailfish than you can reel in, by myself or with family and friends, I continue to go back and catch and eat fresh fish. In Tamarindo, Steve can hook you up with the very best chefs and restaurants in town. Tuna cut right off the fish as soon as you catch it is awesome and an experience you must have! This time I took one of my employees for a retreat after a super start of the year. His first time out he caught a 40# yellow fin tuna and brought to the boat a 350 to 400# Blue Marlin! What an experience he had and I am sure he will remember for a long time to come. I highly recommend Go Fish along with it owners Steve and Lisa, they will treat you right and make you feel at home!

You have been fishing down here for a long time and I know you can't catch fish every time you go out but you Sir have been very lucky over the years. Thanks for all your return visits but most important thanks for trusting us with your friends & clients.

Vacation of a Lifetime

Steve and Liisa Quinn did an amazing job of showing us the best of Costa Rica. Everything about the trip was perfect - the service, the activities, and the food. We went ocean fishing, horse back riding, took incredible beach walks around sunset, had ocean side massages, visited turtle sanctuaries .... Best vacation experience we have ever had. Would highly recommend this to anyone who loves the outdoors.

David K
We are so glad you enjoyed your visit. Most people don't know that we do more than just fishing and that we in-fact will help put anything you can imagine together to make your trip here one to remember. Thanks for putting your trust in us and all the best to you and the Mrs.

The Best Hosts in Tamarindo, Costa Rica

My family and I recently returned from a CCA trip to Tamarindo, Costa Rica. Our hosts, Lissa and Steve Quinn. Our hosts Liisa and Steve Quinn were nothing short of incredible. They arranged everything. Three fishing trips for the guys and girls, and multiple excursions for the kids. Their accommodations at Casa Primo were wonderful. We needed a second condo, and they arranged that as well.

We followed their recommendations for restaurants, and they were perfect. To put in simply; if you needed anything, they could arrange it.

They recommended Coyote Tres, with Capt. Frank for our fishing charters. Boy were they "spot on". The days of fishing and we boated yellowfin tuna, and two massive Blue Marlin.

If you ever want an incredible vacation, contact Liisa and Steve Quinn at Go Fish Costa Rica. You won't regret it!

Glenn Clements and Family!

More than fishing!

Steve and Liisa are fantastic! They make planning a trip easy. They were recommended by friends who are big sport fishers. I have visited Tamarindo several times over the past few years and have had some not so pleasant experiences dealing with others, but they were so great about helping me plan different activities. I've traveled with a variety of friends with varying wants, needs, and senses of adventure and Liisa always steers us in the right direction. The ATV tour is definitely a favorite of mine and a great way to see more of the beautiful beaches in the area. I've been ziplining, sunset cruising, horseback riding, and enjoyed the rain forest all thanks to Go Fish! Steve and Liisa arranged all of our transportation and really take the guess work out of planning. Anyone I have traveled with has commented on how much easier our vacation has been because you can count on all the arrangements that are made with Go Fish Costa Rica! Vacations are meant for relaxing and enjoying and that's exactly what Steve and Liisa allow you to do. I can't recommend them enough! Thank you!

Fishing, Zip Lining, Estuary Tours and Beach Horseback - Amazing.

Fist trip to Costa Rica and it was nothing short of incredible.

That said and without hesitation, it would not have been the what it was without the help of Steve and Liisa from "Go Fish CR". We only planned to charter a fishing trip through them, however after speaking to Liisa, she explained her relationships with locals that provide all of the other tours we planned on. Liisa set everything up for us and we literally showed up at each one.

Every tour we schedule through them was awesome. Great people, great locations and lots of fun. Every tour was safe, clean and had the family in mind. We could not have asked for a better connection than Liisa and Steve.

What matters to me most is communication. We had 11 people in our party and the communication Liisa provided to me made the difference in my time, as well as potential time wasted - OR - more importantly money wasted on unorganized tours or scams (which happen frequently). I can only say thank you through this review.

When we go back, we will connect with Steve and Liisa again. They not only helped us on our first visit, but we now consider them friends.

If you're reading this and contemplating taking tours in CR, contact these people. Do not regret making avoidable mistakes by not following this recommendation.

Have fun!

Go Fish!!! The Only Way To Go!!!

I decided to go to Costa Rica as a surprise for my boyfriend's birthday. I knew nothing about fishing or Costa Rica for that matter. I researched many different companies and options trying to find what I was looking for. Honestly, it was difficult and slightly discouraging. I am so happy I found GoFish. Liisa answered all my questions quickly and with more information than I could ever ask for. She was extremely pleasant to work with. They helped me with everything including things we can do around Tamarindo in our spare time. Steve helped me pick the boat which we both loved!!! My boyfriend hasn't stopped talking about it. We've decided to go back next year and we wouldn't go through anyone else. See you next year Steve and Liisa :)
