Private villas located in the secure Villas del Pacifico compound. All villas are air conditioned, have private or semi-private pools and are fully staffed. Packages are all inclusive and incorporate all transfers, food, drinks - including a fully stocked bar in each villa - and fishing. Choose the package to suit your needs. We are able to customize your package with trips to Antigua, Lake Attilan and the Mayan ruins in the National Park of Tikal. We operate Bertram sportfishing boats from 28-38 ft., with full time crews and quality tackle. We operate ouot of the large, modern port in Iztapa at the Marina Pez Vela. This provides safe harbor under all conditions and the large protected entrance to the harbor makes for a comfortable start to the day - no "shooting the breakers" to disrupt breakfast. Fishing occurs anywhere from 2-50 miles from the breakwater, although it is more usual to find the fish in what is termed "The Pocket" - a deepwater canyon that is 25 miles wide and has dropoffs from 1000ft to 5000ft. It is here that strong currents from the east to west turn back from the coast of El Salvador, and form a natural occurring eddy system that holds vast quantities of bait and attracts pelagic fish in huge numbers.
We offer private 3 and 4 bedroom villas sleeping up to 8 clients. They are staffed with a personal chef, maid and waitress, so that there is maximum flexibility for menus and individual preferences.
Breakfast is served prior to leaving or the dock each morning, and on return you will find freshly made Hors D'oeuvres and cold drinks.
Dinner may be Dorado caught on the trip that day - or whatever your party has chosen for he evening but all served as you like it, when you want it for personal service. All national drinks are also included.
Nearby attractions and activities:
Guatemala is recognized as the home of the most prolific Sailfish fishery in the world. Our boats regularly have over 50 shots per day in peak season, and you can anticipate 15-25 shots on a "regular" day. Nothing is ever guaranteed in fishing - but this is about as close as you can come if you dream about casting to a lit up sailfish within 20ft of the stern, multiple hookups and constant action.
1 hour drive from Guatemala City. You will be met at the airport and transferred in an air conditioned van complete with cold drinks and snacks.
