Where Is The Best Fishing In Cuba?

Cuba

Cuba is home to some amazing activities — riding around in classic cars, sipping fine rum in a smoky dance hall, finally learning what makes the nation's cigars legendary, and basking in the golden glow of beautiful beaches. One thing missing from that list? Some very pleasant fishing...

Fishing is legal on the beaches in Cuba, and Varadero beach is a popular spot for fishermen. Boats can be hired for deep sea fishing all around the island. Cayo Guillermo was a favorite of Ernest Hemingway, and Cayo Coco is also considered some of the best fishing in the Caribbean. Freshwater lakes near Cayo Coco offer a relaxed fishing alternative.

To make this fishing getaway a reality may require a little effort, but it's well worth it. If you're coming from the United States, please read "How to Legally Travel to Cuba as An American." Even if you're coming from a country that enjoys less complicated Cuban entry requirements, you'll still need to bring cash to this island nation.

Next step, your journey. You can get to the island nation of Cuba by land and sea. The best time to visit Cuba is going to be during the dry season — November to April. Of all the things you should bring for your trip to Cuba the most important may be ear plugs — Cuba is a lively country, and if you're hoping to make your big catch in the early morning, you'll need your rest.
