Though typically fishing and romantic vacations do not usually go hand in hand, couples looking for a romantic fishing vacation can find several in Mexico. From the Pacific Ocean to the Sea of Cortez to the Gulf of Mexico to inland lakes and rivers, Mexico is home to several bodies of water ideal for many different types of fishing. All over Mexico, vacationers can enjoy a romantic fishing vacation.
Capella Ixtapa Resort
Guests at the Capella Ixtapa Resort in Ixtapa, Mexico, cannot only enjoy world-class deep-sea fishing but can also experience a luxury romantic vacation, according to the Capella website. An experienced crew takes guests out on a deep-sea fishing adventure to catch big game like marlin, sailfish, dorado and tuna on board a yacht, small or medium boat, or panga. Back at the resort, the culinary staff will prepare and serve whatever fish guests catch. The resort itself sits on a secluded sea cliff, and guests can enjoy romantic amenities like a full-service spa, ocean-front suite accommodations and 24-hour room service. Other activities include water sports, swimming with dolphins and hiking.
Pueblo Bonita Emerald Bay
Known around the world for high-quality sport fishing, Mazatlan is also home to the Pueblo Bonita Emerald Bay resort. As the Pueblo Bonita website states, the resort partners with Anglers Inn Fishing Club to provide guests with a deep-sea or fresh-water fishing experience. Guests can fish for large-mouth bass in Mexico's Lake El Salto, or catch roosterfish, grouper, snapper, marlin and sailfish in Emerald Bay. The all-suite resort includes junior and master suites with balconies or patios, six restaurants and bars, spa, beauty salon, fitness center and daily activities. Other resort activities include water sports, shopping excursions and eco tours.
