Colombia, a paradise with a bad reputation thanks to decades of civil conflicts, it’s been for several years a very Safe country to visit and it’s becoming a top touristic destination.
This amazing country offers more unique and diverse ecosystems than any other place in the Americas.
Think about a place where you can travel to Pacific rain forests growing along the ocean, Pacific islands, Three Andes ranges, two huge river valleys (Cauca and Magdalena), The Caribbean coast, Caribbean islands, Santa Marta mountains, The Guajira dessert,Amazon rain forest, and The llanos (grasslands).
Even though some regions have received tourists for more than 10 years, there are some beautiful and interesting areas which have never been visited before and now are waiting with open arms for people to come.
Colombia is one of the most developed countries in Latin America, something not known by most of travelers.
Positive attitude, Great healthcare, an all time renewing infrastructure, loads of ambitious students coming from top universities, lead the future of this boasting country.
In terms of fishing, there are areas in Colombia known only by very experienced and wise fishermen, so we have chosen 1 main spot for a number of reasons, like:
Safety, logistics, infrastructure but the most important the amount, variety, and size of the fish we can catch.
These area is world-fishing destinations, and promise a lot of fish, big fish, and a lot of fun.
Each area counts with unique habitats, different fishing seasons, types of water, accommodation, logistics, kinds of fish, types of boats etc.
The type of fishing is completely sustainable, responsible and follows catch and release philosophy.
Llanos (grasslands/savannah) freshwater, eastern lowlands.
In this city its summer right when the fishing season opens. Its beautiful rivers, landscapes and breathtaking sunsets offer us a great experience.
The site is very productive for world-class fishing due to many features.
Little access through decades, lack of ancestral fishing technics like barbasco, clear water, water levels drop dramatically on fishing season, catch and release, 20 years of experience in sport fishing and more.
And since 1985 laws that protect peacock bass, sardinata and payara where inforced.
For All this reasons, these rivers hold one of the largest amounts of fresh water sport fishing fish in the world with more than 80
Fishing it’s not recommended the rest of the year because water levels are really high so fish goes away from accessible fishing sites, it’s rainy and the rivers become murky.
Our staff is really experienced in these waters, with fishing, driving the motors, knowing the spots, the types of fish, lures, baits, flies.
