Getting there is half the fun. It takes planes, boats and mini-buses to reach Azuero Peninsula.

Jungle-covered landscapes and mammoth-sized fish lure thrill-seeking anglers to Panama’s Azuero Peninsula. Panama is a thriving, modern country, but visiting the Azuero Peninsula is a trip back to the Jurassic period. Lush tropical foliage covers steep mountains that rise straight out of the cobalt ocean providing a stunning backdrop for an epic fishing trip that is sure to be the adventure of a lifetime.

Whether you stay in the modern Pedasi fishing lodge or venture to the rustic Azuero outpost, it is possible to catch dogtooth snapper, roosterfish, grouper, yellowfin tuna, wahoo, marlin, sailfish and more just a short distance from the beach.
