What to Expect
Enjoy a superb 4-day fishing trip, with 2 days fishing for sailfish, mahi-mahi, tuna and wahoo off the Pacific Coast of Guatemala, sailing by yacht or small boats, with deluxe accommodation at the Hotel Soleil Pacifico, boasting a barefoot luxury ambiance and colorful Central American décor.
The all-inclusive trip includes transfers, meals, and all the adventure you need in the sport fishing capital of the sailfish, with excellent fishing year round.
Upon arrival, you will be met at La Aurora International Airport for the transfer to Port San José. If your flight is late, you will stay in Guatemala City, and transfer early the next day to the marina of San José. Check in to the Hotel Soleil Pacifico, boasting 2 swimming pools, a beachfront restaurant and even al fresco massage treatments conducted under the ocean breeze. All meals and local drinks are included in your package.
Transfer to Marina Pez Vela and board the yacht that will take you on your first fishing adventure. Spend a full-day sport fishing in the warm eddies of the ocean. Thanks to the Equatorial Counter Current, the area is effectively a bill fish superhighway, attracting bill fish and endless bait all year round.
Catch and release sailfish, marlin, all billfish, and other species such as mahi mahi, wahoo, Spanish mackerel, and yellow tuna. Fishing trips last from 07:00 until 16:00, returning in the late afternoon sun to Marina Pez Vela for the transfer to your hotel.
Transfer to Marina Pez Vela and board the yacht for your 2nd full-day of sport fishing. Guatemala holds the record for the most sailfish released in one day, and the calm waters and friendly fishing atmosphere add to the sense of serenity.
