About
Description
Indulging anglers from around the globe in unequaled comfort is Casa Vieja Lodge, a classically styled sportsman's retreat surrounded by landscaped gardens and tropical foliage providing the ultimate in More privacy. West Coast Guatemala's billfish productivity is literally unbeatable. With numbers like 124 releases in a single day, by one boat and 300 releases in 3 days on conventional tackle or how about 57 in a single day fly fishing and an overall annual release rate of a dozen billfish per day, per boat, it's clear that Guatemala's Pacific coast offers the highest concentrations of billfish found anywhere worldwide. It's very real! At Casa Vieja Lodge, we take exceptional pride in assuring you world class vessels, run by highly respected captains with day end returns to the highest quality accommodations imaginable. Less
