Puerto Vallarta Fishing

Puerto Vallarta takes the crown as Mexico's strongest contender for the greatest deep sea fishing location in all of the Pacific. With its 3 legendary hotspots (El Moro, Corbetena and El Banco) and its prolific end-of-the-year Marlin seasons, PV never fails to deliver, even to the most demanding of anglers. Better yet, due to Vallarta's resident Mahi Mahi population and ample Tuna fishing potential in the summer, this fishery is ready to please, 24/7, 365 days of the year!
