Take time to see Panama before and after transits

ADVERTISEMENT

The Pacific Coast of Panama has excellent fishing, big game fish as well as bottom and in-shore fishing. The best times are when it hasn’t been raining much — so the summer/dry months — but the fishing really is good year round. The same is true of that whole region on the Pacific side of Central America.

Having a major airport in Panama City means it’s easy to get there from anywhere, and there are flights to Las Perlas. Guy Harvey wrote about his more than 20 fishing trips there in the book “Panama Paradise”.
