Sportfishing: Panama City Trip Gets Underway

The first thing you need to know about sport fishing in Panama is that it is world class and you will find it every month of the year. An important fact that has made Panamá a top destination for sport fishing is that you don't need a license. From Panama City, you can try the sport for the first time, no problem.

The strategic position of the country and the diversity of local and migratory fish that cross the Pacific Ocean, make Panama City the perfect starting point for your next fishing trip.

The City, as we locals call it, is the capital of the country. Where, in addition to absolutely everything you need in terms of lodging, restaurants, things to see and do, you will find several marinas from where to start your fishing trip near or far from the coast. The main ones are in Punta Pacifica and the Amador Causeway. There are charters for excursions of one or more days to the Gulf of Panama and beyond.
