Acapulco is famous for discos, beaches and
night life. What is not so well-known is

Because the Pacific coast of southern Mexico
is mountainous, the deep blue water frequented by most
big game fish is usually very close to Acapulco bay. We
have caught billfish 100 yards from the shore! So, we
start fishing immediately upon leaving the bay,
and fish all the way back when we return.
Also, the waters surrounding Acapulco are
lightly fished with no centers within 100 miles north
or 200 miles south. This lack of pressure contributes
to the wonderful fishing we have during most of the year.
For those who would like to try lighter tackle there is
also excellent seasonal small game fishing for bonito,
jacks, or spanish mackerel.
