Ask anyone in San Pedro about Luis Caliz..He is great for any kind of fishing...If he is booked he'll tell you someone that is good...I had his # but somehow misplaced it.. Good Luck----John

Marty Online   happy
Here's a few, including Luiz' phone number....

the best fishing info is at:

There are prices, what to fish with, what to catch, lotsa good info there.

There there are also local folks who guide, who are not listed on the link above, and I will list a few of them...

The Guerrero brothers I've spent time with and know they have an environmental attitude. They give value while still leaving some fish for others. Everyone raves about their beach BBQ. Severo and his brother, Ramon Guerrero. Either one can give you a great day of fishing. Call Severo from the US @ 011 501 226 2324. Call Ramon @ 011 501 226 2325. They have been doing honest, reef friendly fishing for many years. They can also take you and your family on a full-day fish/snorkel trip for $150US...one of the best bargains on the island when you figure in the beach BBQ w/ your catch. You won't find a better value in San Pedro. Price is for the boat for the day, I think up to 4 people. The Guerrero brothers live next door to each other. If one is booked, ask for the other one. Good luck! Remember, take some and leave some.

Some don't advise you about catch and release. Some will let you fish all day without regard to limit (although there is none, common sense should take over). Some charge too much for too little.

Omar Arceo, does a heck of a job. Gilberto or Tomas arranged by Amigo's de Mar...

A great guide and very pleasant individual is Luis Caliz in San Pedro, phone number 011-501-226-2785. Best time to catch him by phone is after 6 PM

Nesto Gomez { a very good guide}-- one of the best tarpon and bonefish flyfisherman! He works out of El Pescador.

For flat fishing call Eloy Gonzalez at 226-2337

Pedro (Pete) Graniel. First rate equipment, including boats, and does both offshore, reef and inshore (tarpon, etc.) Keeps his boat just south of town. Ask anyone how to contact him. He's well known.

A friend went with a guy named Vince Dawson, and their bonefishing and reef fishing experience was "legendary", according to them. We saved enough for a barbecue the next day (grouper and snapper) and it was possibly the best tasting fish we had ever experienced. Apparently they made contact with him thru Rubys.

Contact Hillyboo @ Freedom Tours, he is personal, and you go by yourselves... You can reach him when you get to the islands at Freedom Tours.

We've used Vince Dawson for the past two years. The guy is magical on the reef fishing. He knows what is on the line as soon as it hits. Kind of fish, size, first name.
Been there, done that, the washing machine ate the T-shirt

My friend and I went out with Omar Arceo and had an excellent time. (first time fishing in AC) We only went Bonefishing, but next time we're down we want to try some reef fishing.

I hope Omar found his glasses! (brand new, polarized, flew right off his head)
One Barrel and Sprite.....It doesn't get any better than that!
