Sometimes what someone needs is a fishing trip, to leave all sorts of troubles behind on shore and just relax. Just experiencing nature is something that doesn't get done much anymore, and there are fewer places than ever to do it. Central America is one of the few true tropical paradises left on Earth. Filled to the brim with lush tropical rainforests and beautifully pristine beaches, the countries of Central America make for exceptional vacation destinations. Guatemala is just one of these countries.
Guatemala is a place where you can fish to your heart's content. Plenty of Guatemala fishing lodges are around, from where you can fish day in and day out. With remnants of the ancient Maya culture still prevalent in parts of the region, Guatemala is as interesting on land as it is in the water. The unique blend of Spanish and Maya elements combine to create a culture unlike any in the world, and with Mayan ruins located all around the country, going exploring is a fun way to get to know the area.
Another unique country of Central America is Panama. If you are thinking of traveling to Guatemala, definitely consider continuing your trip to Panama, as it only gets better. Tropic Star Lodge is a world famous fishing lodge where you can experience game fishing at its best, and it has even been rated by Robb Resort Magazine as the best salt water fishing resort. With more than 50 IGFA World Record titles attributed to this lodge - and with 250 previous records broken - you can expect nothing less than some of the best fishing in the world. Not only is the offshore fishing great with its plentitude of mighty marlin, tuna, almaco jacks, wahoo, and more, but the inshore fishing with plenty of 50 pound cubera snapper and roosterfish is amazing also. It's all just part of the Tropic Star experience.
The deep blue waters of the Pacific Ocean provide the perfect battlefield for the fight against a thousand pound marlin. The lush tropical rainforest that surrounds the lodge, as well as the many rivers and beautiful white beaches, are perfect landscapes to explore. The tropical rainforest of Panama is untouched and in a pristine state of wilderness, meaning you can experience nature at its most raw. It is really an experience in the heart of National Geographic country.
Central America is without a doubt one of the most naturally beautiful places on Earth. If you are considering traveling to one of the Guatemala's fishing lodges, consider completing your trip of Central America by heading down to Tropic Star Lodge in Panama as well.
