Fishing Trips in Panama – Rio Hato, Playa Blanca, Buenaventura

The pacific side of Panama is famous for its game fish. Even the name “Panama” give a clue of what fishermen should expect here: The word “Panama” means “abundance of fish.” While some historians believe that Panama was an indigenous name for a particular tree or an abundance of butterflies, the majority consensus is that it means “abundance of fish.”

If you are on a vacation in Panama, and you stay in or around Buenaventura, Playa Blanca, Rio Hato, or the Valle de Anton, you may go on a fishing trip or fishing charter starting in Buenaventura Marina.

If you just like to take your travel casting rod, there are also some spots around the beaches, mostly around the river mouth, where you will be able to catch your family’s dinner.
