In almost 50 years as an outdoor journalist and 30 seasons producing television shows, my travels have taken me from the Arctic to the jungles and from Hawaii to Africa chasing fish of every description. Of all the places I’ve been, if you told me I could go back to Guatemala’s Casa Vieja Lodge, I would be on the next flight.
Let me tell you why. Getting there is easy and when you arrive, the greeting you receive heralds the first class service you will receive every day you are there. The accommodations are excellent and the food is a delight. It’s only a very short drive to the marina where you will board a sportfishing boat that is fast and comfortable. The skippers and crew rank among the best you will find anywhere. And, the fishing is absolutely outstanding. There are no better waters anywhere in North or South America for catching sailfish. The number of fish you will raise staggers the imagination.
Although I have been there several times and shot a number of television shows there, I’m ready to go back. If you haven’t been to Casa Vieja, come on down. You’ll never forget the wonderful experience.
