Casa Vieja Lodge
Join Trek November through May in Guatemala for the finest Sailfish, Dorado, Tuna and Marlin fishing on this or any other planet. Daily raises of 20 sails a day, or more, are common. Don’t miss out, call Trek today and book your Guatemala fishing vacation!
Upon arrival into Guatemala City, you will be met by a lodge representative and be driven 90 minutes to Puerto San Jose and the Casa Vieja Lodge. The next three mornings, you will be up at 6:00am for breakfast, before taking the 5 minute drive to the Marina Pez Vela to board your boat for a full day of Guatemala sailfishing- some of the best saltwater action in the world.
All conventional and fly fishing equipment is available for your use, with saltwater flies for sale at a nominal rate. When you get back to the lodge around 4:30pm, you will have time to relax around the pool while dinner is being prepared. After breakfast on your last morning, you will pack up and be transferred back to Guatemala City and the airport for your scheduled international departure.
Although sailfish are your main target, you may also get shots at dorado, tuna and the occasional marlin. The best bite in Guatemala is generally within an hour of the marina. So, short runs in calm seas and tons of sailfish, what’s not to like? Throw in a deluxe lodge with delicious meals, and that is about as good as it gets.
We will be staying at the Casa Vieja Lodge, formerly the private retreat of one of Guatemala’s most prominent sporting families. The manicured grounds surrounding this 20 bedroom lodge make it a place of true relaxation. We will be using boats in the 37ft range with upgrades to 43ft boats available.
