San Carlos is without doubt the best place in the state to go and fish, with calm waters, comfortable temperatures, modern infrastructure, 700 slips for boats divided in two marinas, rental facilities and the main attraction: more than 800 varieties of maritime species that place the area second place in the world. In the last year alone, more than 15,000 fishermen visited San Carlos.

You will find everything that you need: fully equipped boats, bait, tackle, ice, Captain, deckhand, filleting of fish, 4 hour party boats or 6 to 8 hour charters.

If you bring your own boat to fish with, you will need both a permit for the boat and individual fishing licenses. The Federal Sport Fishing office can be contacted at
