Pacific Blues

Though El Salvador may be short on coastline, the billfish don't know that: it's long on offshore promise.

 

TRIP PLANNER

What: Pacific blue marlin, sailfish, yellowfin tuna and dorado.

When: Year-round action. The average offshore water temperature stays in the 80-degree range. The rainy season typically runs from November through March.

Where: Located 40 minutes southeast of the Comalapa International Airport, near the capital of San Salvador, Bahia del Sol Hotel and Casino is the hub for the country's big-game fishing. The comfortable facility has town houses, single- to triple-occupancy deluxe suites, two restaurants, and Wi-Fi in the lobby. The marina is well protected inside the lagoon, while the ocean beaches are within walking distance across the main highway. bahiadelsolelsalvador.com.

Who: A well equipped, modern fleet of local charter boats stands ready to help you take advantage of the productive offshore waters of El Salvador.
