Fish the sailfish capital of the world

We are delighted to be able to offer a new destination, a stunning 5 star lodge in Guatemala giving access to what is undoubtably the greatest billfish destination anywhere in the world.

Double-digit sailfish raises have been recorded by our crews every month of the year, as well as marlin releases. Grand Slams are an everyday possibility from December thru March and again in the late May thru July.

Inshore species are also available, with the peak time for these being March to July however these can be found all year round, the usual suspects abound including YFT, Snappers, Sierra mackerel, Horse eye Jacks, Jack Crevalle, Roosterfish and Grouper to name a few.

Built over twenty years ago as the private retreat to one of Guatemala’s most prominent sporting families, the newly renovated lodge is sure to delight guests who have angled the all over the world.

Continual upgrading makes this lodge the ultimate retreat after a day on the water. There is no surprise that the lodge was designed by lifelong sportsmen who believe that world class fishing deserves world class accommodations – regardless of how far you are from home.

Please note there are many variations/itineraries for this destination and, of course, you can elect to stay for longer.

With 9 boats to choose from from 35 to 40 foot, some with air conditioned cabins you will be experiencing sport fishing at the highest level. All boats are fully equipped with the latest tackle and safety equipment

UK based tackle suppliers are very few and far between for this kind of equipment however we highly recommend Terry at Jigabite as your first port of call.
