Puerto Vallarta and Riviera Nayarit are recognized as an excellent place for fishing, either as a hobby or sport, because inside and outside spectacular Banderas Bay you can find a diversity of fish that include deep-sea fishing species. 

A characteristic of these Mexican Pacific coasts is the ease with which these specimens can be found during most of the year; however, the reality is that there are specific seasons and zones in which sport fishing is more advisable.

Places and Species

Marietas Islands (4-6 hours)
Located near the shores of Punta de Mita, the following species can be found in the immediate vicinity of this protected sanctuary:

  • Sailfish
  • Yellowfin Tuna
  • Mahi-mahi
  • Roosterfish

El Morro (8 hours)
Located offshore of the Marietas Islands, in this popular site you can capture species such as the following:

  • Sailfish
  • Striped Marlin

  • Black Marlin
  • Blue Marlin
  • Large Yellowfin Tuna
