Guatemala deep sea fishing charter boats catch & release so many sailfish "pez vela" each year that Guatemala is now the sailfish capitol of the world. Port of San Jose Guatemala clearly trumps Costa Rica as the world's best sailfishing destination. Many salt water sport fishing articles have been written and documentaries filmed about the world class sport fishing in this tiny Central American fishing paradise. Writers for Marlin Magazine, The Discovery Channel, Outdoor Channel, & Salt Water Sportsman are but a few of the many professional outdoor journalists raving about the first class sport fishing in Guatemala. The sailfishing in Guatemala is amazing year-round & the Mad Marlin averages 15 raises and 12 sailfish releases per day fishing. The slow fishing days happen occasionally, but are certainly rare.
Let Mad Marlin Lodge, Pacific Fins, or Casa vieja Lodge in Marina Pez Vela bring you sport fishing dreams to live with one of their all-inclusive vacation packages.
