The Central American country of Guatemala is well known for its beautiful landscape, majestic volcanoes and Mayan ruins. For the adventurous big-game angler, however, the country’s scorching-hot sailfish action tops the list of reasons to visit. Year round— especially December through May— there is no other place on earth where you’ll have the opportunity to land and release such staggering numbers of Pacific sails.

Upon arrival into Guatemala City, you will be met by a lodge representative and be driven 90 minutes to Puerto San Jose and the Casa Vieja Lodge. The next three mornings, you will be up at 6:00am for breakfast, before taking the 5 minute drive to the Marina Pez Vela to board your boat for a full day of Guatemala sailfishing- some of the best saltwater action in the world.

All conventional and fly fishing equipment is available for your use, with saltwater flies for sale at a nominal rate. When you get back to the lodge around 4:30pm, you will have time to relax around the pool while dinner is being prepared. After breakfast on your last morning, you will pack up and be transferred back to Guatemala City and the airport for your scheduled international departure.

Although sailfish are your main target, you may also get shots at dorado, tuna and the occasional marlin. The best bite in Guatemala is generally within an hour of the marina. So, short runs in calm seas and tons of sailfish, what’s not to like? Throw in a deluxe lodge with delicious meals, and that is about as good as it gets.

We will be staying at the Casa Vieja Lodge, formerly the private retreat of one of Guatemala’s most prominent sporting families. The manicured grounds surrounding this 20 bedroom lodge make it a place of true relaxation. We will be using boats in the 37ft range with upgrades to 43ft boats available.
