Central America is famous for its lush tropical surroundings. Countries like Guatemala are great places to visit because they are relatively untouched by the hectic urban movement that comprises our day-to-day lives. Guatemala in particular features dense rainforests, towering volcanoes, unique wildlife, and ruins from the ancient civilization of the Maya. Guatemala sport fishing is especially good, with huge fish just off shore and ready to be caught.
Guatemala is unique in that it features some of the most beautiful beaches in the world, yet it remains relatively free of industrialization. Long expanses of beach are free of people, and exploring the way you want to explore is an entirely realistic option. There are no massive crowds of tourists, just you, a fishing pole, and the goliaths of the sea. In Guatemala, you can decide to hike on a volcano, such as Volcan de Pacaya, an active volcano that can be climbed all the way to the top. You can also check out the crumbling ruins of the mighty and ancient Maya.
However, there is a place that can give you all of this and more. Tropic Star Lodge is in Panama, a country located a little farther south in the Central American isthmus. Panama is one of the top adventure destinations in the world, making it perfect for those who do not want to go on another standard, run-of-the-mill vacation. The Tropic Star experience starts with a National Geographic setting: mountains, ruins, beautiful surroundings, and more, just like Guatemala. The resort accommodations are what top it all off. The resort offers some of the best sport fishing in the world, with huge black and blue marlin, tuna, almaco jacks, wahoo, and other large fish being caught during the whole year. If you are looking to fish a little closer to shore, the inshore fishing is just as exciting with 50 pound cubera snapper and roosterfish. Snorkeling, boating, hiking, horseback riding, kayaking, and white water rafting are all popular activities in Panama, making it a great destination for those who love to be out exploring in the sunshine.
This resort doesn't go without recommendation either. Guy Harvey is a personal visitor, and it has been rated as the number one salt water fishing resort in the world by Robb Resort Magazine.
With some of the world's biggest fish swimming right off shore, you can expect a fishing vacation unlike any other. Tropic Star Lodge can help you get out on the ocean and land some of the biggest fish you have ever seen. And while Guatemala sport fishing is great in its own right, sport fishing is at its best in Panama's waters.
