West Coast Guatemala’s billfish productivity is literally unbeatable. With numbers like 124 releases in a single day, by one boat and 300 releases in 3 days on conventional tackle or how about 57 in a single day fly fishing and an overall annual release rate of a dozen billfish per day, per boat, it’s clear that Guatemala’s Pacific coast offers the highest concentrations of billfish found anywhere worldwide. It’s very real!

At Casa Vieja Lodge, we take exceptional pride in assuring you world class vessels, run by highly respected captains with day end returns to the highest quality accommodations imaginable. In 2006 we opened the Casa Vieja Lodge. The new facility is located less than a mile from the entrance of Marina Pez Vela. After a day on the water you can be back in the Casa Vieja’s pool in 5 minutes. Gone are the days of running the not-so-popular “la cala de la muerte” – the inlet of death, traveling through a dangerous inlet will never again be a concern for our clients. While a trip to the paradise of Casa Vieja Lodge is every bit of a 4-star luxury, the cost per release still cannot be beaten – anywhere!
