Fishing in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico Source: Wikipedia

Fishing is one of the few sports that people of all ages can enjoy. You can spend quality  time in nature and, if you charter a boat, you can learn new techniques and catch fish you ordinarily would not catch on your own. Luckily, there are many amazing places for fishing in the world, and one of the most interesting ones is Puerto Vallarta, Mexico.

Puerto Vallarta is a small city in Mexico, part of the Bahia de Banderas Bay.  A big part of the city residents make their living  thanks to the Pacific Ocean, and fishing and chartering are the most common activities. Due to the hot climate, many different species of fish arrive to escape colder waters. This means that here you have the chance to see fish that you will not have the chance to catch in other parts of the country.

Since fishing is such a great industry in Puerto Vallarta, you can find any piece of equipment you want, as some of the biggest fishing outfitters in the world have stores in the city. You will also find professional fishers who charter to visitors.

You can spend your day fishing from the shore along with many other fishermen. However, you have better chances to catch large, interesting fish if you go on one of the many fishing charter boats that leaving the shore every day. You can pay for a place on a boat, or you can rent one for yourself and fish on your own. If you are not familiar with the waters off the west coast of Mexico, your best bet is to join a charter. All equipment and the expertise is provided.
