charter boats leave out of Pez Vela Marina on the west coast of
Guatemala, about a 90 minute drive from Guatemala City. We fish aboard
the Captain Hook, a 43' Willis sportfisher. This is one of the top boats
in Guatemala, and holds the world record for the most sailfish landed in
a single day, 124 sails! The captain and crew of this boat are some the
best in the world! Not only are they incredible fishermen, but they are
incredible people as well. We are taken care of on the boat with plenty
of cold drinks, beers, and one of the best boat lunches in the world!
They also provide top of the line conventional tackle and fly equipment.
Captain Hook's schedule fills up very quickly so must book this one

located an excellent rental house for our fishing adventures. The house
is located just a few minutes from the marina in San Marino. The San
Marino neighborhood is a high-end gated community on a series of canals.
There is also a private black-sand beach in San Marino for swimming in
the Pacific Ocean! The house is very large with 5 bedrooms and 2 living
areas as well as a large outdoor area with pool. We have a private chef,
a maid, and a driver while we are there. Chef Kelli will have appetizers
and welcome drinks ready when we come in from fishing. The breakfasts
and dinners are excellent traditional meals. All drinks, water, and beer
are also included. The captain of the charter boat runs the rental
property so if the boat is available, then the property is available as
well. This place is just right for our fishing
