Nicaragua is not only the Land of Lakes and Volcanoes, it’s also home to world-class fishing!
While die-hard fisherman have long visited the likes of other Central American countries, only some are in “the know” about Nicaragua. Nicaragua’s Atlantic and Pacific Coasts are teeming with a large variety of fish including rooster fish, sierra mackerel, jack crevalle, bonito, hound fish, snapper, grouper, snook, marlin, sailfish, yellowfin tuna, wahoo and dorado just to name a few.

Enthusiasts can choose from a range of fishing experiences and breathtaking backdrops. Whether looking to stay at a tourist and surfing hot spot such as San Juan del Sur on the Pacific Coast or visiting the more remote areas of Marina Puesta del Sol in northern Chinandega or Bluefields on the Atlantic coast, visitors can enjoy fishing in some of Central America’s most beautiful surroundings.
In Lake Nicaragua (which is compared to the size of Puerto Rico), fisherman have battled “huge” tarpon and other exotic game fish such as guapote (rainbow bass), machacas (which resemble shad fish, but with teeth), mojarras, and gar.

At the Marina Puesta del Sol resort in Chinandega, the annual Flor de Cana Fishing Tournament draws anglers from around the world, attracted to the incredible fishing and unparalleled beauty of the resort.

In how many places around the world can one fish surrounded by several majestic volcanoes alongside surfers catching that "totally awesome" wave? Surfers and fishermen are just discovering this incredible hot spot.
