un professional!! Then to ad to all this this guy Jowen Sapiano was nickle and dimming us all the way down the line never has money on him at the restaurants breakfast lunch and dinner we picked up the tab "hey I maybe could get some extra gas money from you guy's" when on his site transportation is included don't worry he will ask for some extra gas money then he takes us to a restaurant I am almost certain he had a kick back from it was our most expensive meal and we provided the main course bringing the one fish we had. Funny stuff!!! On the way home from the second day we are over it and ready to get away we prepare for a truck ride home when Jowen passes a bus on a bridge and gets pulled over by the police he begins acting very frantic yelling for us to provide him with money to payoff the police we wonder why he is franticlly asking all of us for money to payoff the cop he grabs $100 dollars from one of us and hands it to the cop to get out of his infraction and then tells us thats how it is and he didn't want to deal with them and the whole process. Expecting us to pay for his traffic infraction was ridiculious but he did not have a problem asking us for money to handle it because he never had any money.After two days of fast talking and hustling us on his business proposition we go back and all start discussing inconsistences that he had in his proposition. This all was alot to absorb so we jump on a computer to google this guy to see what come up and a slew of Cons and Scams came up from trading Scams to Scuba scams reports of dive gear stolen from students all kinds of stuff Then all the pieces started coming together he had talked some guys into sending down a boat to him to make these great returns but before we were even home the guys who had already bought the boat from us to send down to him was calling franticly to make sure that we wouldn't send the boat because he had just found out his scammer history of Fraud and Scams Google "Jowen Sapaino" and see for yourself he claimed to be a airline pilot for american airlines , retired military commander Stanford graduate maybe he is but all that I have found out just really doesn't make any sense about him The conclusion that I have come up with is that he Isn't who he claims to be DEFINATELY CANNOT FISH and is a smooth talking CON MAN I have posted this so no one will waste any time on one of this 1k dollar fishing trips that are a joke don't waste your money there are plenty of organized real fisherman in Costa to hire we checked with some other tourists we met and they all boated 5 or 6 sailfish and loaded the mahi on the same days we went we got bamboozled. Do not get convinced to invest with this guy in any business venture he has proven himself as a swindler and con man on many levels. Stay clear many people were really close to getting taken by him on our trip thank goodness for google information. He is from Santa Barbara California where you can research him some more where he has many problems with scams there as well he also has ties to Miami as well protect yourself and stay clear of this man and his affiliates.
