In this area, the success of your fishing day is practically guaranteed.


You'll be able to sail from shallow to deep waters and find an abundance of unparalleled life. 

Another great advantage of this region is that it has very little sport fishing boats, so you can enjoy your adventure without much competition. In this area, you'll have greater chances of fishing big.

If your visit coincides with the rainy season (April to December) you have nothing to worry about. This area is called the “Dry Arc” because it gets less rain and less wind than the rest of the country, so you will have a fairly calm sea. If you come from December to April, you'll find open-sea fish closer to shore and very close to the usual species.

If you choose the months of July to September for your fishing trip to Panamá, you'll be arriving in the whale watching season. Be sure to look for them when you get on your boat. You can have an experience that you'll never forget.
