Vacations are escapes that are simply just necessary sometimes. It's important to take a break from the monotony and experience something a little exciting. If you are a fan of fishing, then consider experiencing this excitement on the open waters of Central America. With its dense tropical rainforests ringing with the sounds of howler monkeys, exotic birds, and other animals, Central America is one of the most beautiful and untouched places on Earth, bonafide National Geographic country.
Due to its location and its outstanding biodiversity, countries like Guatemala are true paradise for those who want to explore, sight-see, and fish. Big game fishing Guatemala is some of the best around, with plenty of huge fish swimming just off shore. Of course, there is more to do than fish, if you decide to do something else. Ancient Mayan sites like Tikal are truly breathtaking, even more so when you get there early enough to see the sun rise over the ancient buildings. There are also many mountains, including active volcanoes that you can hike to.
However, if you are looking for a true fishing experience, be sure to at least extend your trip a little further south to Panama. Tropic Star Lodge in Pinas Bay, Panama is world-renowned for its superior fishing experience as well as its beautiful natural surroundings. Some 50 IGFA fishing world records have been earned at the resort, with more than 250 being broken here in its history. It's secluded location means that you and a few other people can fish without having to deal with masses of tourists or having to compete with other fishing boats on the ocean, making it a true example of a laid-back fishing trip. However, don't be fooled; battling a thousand pound marlin is anything but laid-back. Other huge fish populate the waters as well, including giant yellowfin tuna, almaco jacks, and wahoo. You also have the option of inshore fishing during your stay. Inshore fishing presents plenty of challenges as well, with huge fish both inshore and offshore. All of this is part of the Tropic Star experience.
Tropic Star comes with some stunning credentials as well. World Records are constantly being set, and it has even won the distinction as best salt water fishing resort in the world by Robb Resort Magazine.
The unique location of countries in Central America contributes to the huge range of biodiversity and abundance of life that can be found there, and this can be applied to the ocean life too. Big game fishing Guatemala is definitely great, but if you are looking to challenge your skill and take your fishing experience to the next level, consider heading down to Tropic Star Resort in Pinas Bay, Panama and live the Tropic Star experience for yourself.
