Fishing in Guatemala, the sailfish capital of the world
If calm waters and multiple shots at Pacific sailfish every day excite you, then Guatemala’s Pacific coast is your fishing paradise. Experienced anglers rate Guatemala sportfishing as the best in the world because it is known as the “hot spot” for large numbers of Pacific sailfish. And when it comes to sailfishing our fleet averages an incredible 15 to 20 bites a day. Marlin in the 300 to 600 pound class have been caught regularly in our waters and in recent years it is not uncommon to see our outstanding captains and crews raise multiple marlin in a single day. Yellowfin tuna and dorado (Mahi-Mahi) are also abundant. We offer All-Inclusive fishing packages for Guatemala sailfishing and marlin fishing trips. Guatemala fishing is far superior to other options in Central America. Guatemala is very easy to get to and requires no extra night in the main city upon arrival like Costa Rica or Panama. Once you arrive at the Resort you immediately discover the quality of Pacific Fins’ accommodations, charter boats and crews. They are the best in Central America!
Over the last several years more and more experienced anglers who had previously frequented Costa Rica and Panama are now making Guatemala their primary fishing destination. Our Guatemala fishing packages make it easier and more affordable than ever to make your sportfishing adventure dream a reality. Come for the adventure of a lifetime! See for yourself why well over 80% of our guests are repeat clients year in and year out. Pacific Fins has the newest, most luxurious and best maintained fleet in the area and our Guatemalan captains are hands down the best and most experienced in the business.
