Costa Rica is always dependable with great billfishing on the Pacific coast and tarpon on the Caribbean. It's less expensive than you think. For less than $2500, two of you can have three days fishing with four nights lodging (none of them in the city). Plus it's a great vacation spot for the whole family. Guatemala probably has the world's best sailfishing. Prices there start at around $1800 for a similar trip, with lodging at the new Radisson Villas del Pacifico. Belize and the Yucatan Peninsula are prime locations for light tackle fishing. If that's where your interests lie, that's where you want to go, where a flats grand slam is a realistic possibility. In fact if your wife talks you into Cancun, you can even sneak in a day of fishing in a nearby lagoon for $375 per day. Are you a bottom fisherman? Think about Panama. Most anglers relate Panama to billfishing, but lesser known is the spectacular reef fishing for 100 pound groupers and 75 pound snappers. A party of two can have a great three days fishing there for around $2500. Of course if the billfishing is what turns you on Panama has lots of that, but availability is often a problem. Give me a call, and I'll set you up with the fishing adventure of a lifetime. The worst thing that can happen is we'll spend a little time b-sing about fishing.
