Buenavista Sportfishing is the longest continually-run sportfishing lodge in the whole of Guatemala. Providing the highest quality sportfishing in the country with a stunning boat and lodge, they have the experience to make sure your vacation with them is phenomenal. Moreover, they offer all the above without the cowboy Rolex price tag.

The Legacy is the flagship of Buenavista Sportfishing fleet. This 42 ft Ricky Scarborough vessel is powered by a single 450 HP Cummins diesel engine, which gives plenty of clear water behind the transom. The boat is fully equipped for your comfort and features two A/Cs, a kitchen, a large salon with plenty of seating, a marine head, and an enormous cockpit that is covered with plenty of shade. Legacy also features outriggers and tuna tubes for a superior big game fishing experience.

You will spend your trip fishing anywhere from 10 to 40 miles offshore in some of the world’s best game fishing grounds. Here you can catch Marlin, Sailfish, Mahi Mahi and more, and you will be supplied with everything you need to make it happen. You will be fishing with live bait, which will be rigged for you by the crew, who aim to let you enjoy a hands-on experience, while always being available to help in any way possible. Families particularly enjoy the laid-back atmosphere on board!
