The target species for your trip are Sail Fish and the warm currents off the coast are home to the most prolific breeding ground for Pacific Sails anywhere in the world. In fact 10-15 Sail Fish per day per boat is common with catches in excess of 70 in one day! With acrobatic leaps and long runs any angler on fly or conventional gear is assured a great battle with one of the top sports fish.

The lodge has all the necessary fishing gear, but for the fly fisherman who is taking rods, 12-14 weights are recommended. Other species you can expect to catch are Maui Maui up to 40lb, Tuna, Dorado, Blue and Black Marlin and a host of other pelagic fish.

Three days is the normal package, but 2, 4, 5 and 6 days are also available. Mayan Ruin tours to Tikal (one of the largest Mayan sites in the region) and extended stays in Antigua are also available before returning home. All packages come with fishing (guides and gear), accommodation, meals, open bar, a night either side in Guatemala City and transfers.
