El Morro

Located just off the north end of Banderas Bay, this group of rock pinnacles makes for great fishing. The barnacle-covered rocks attract tuna up to 50 lbs, sailfish, dorado (mahi mahi), yellowtail, and more. Even though this area is about 18 to 26 miles from the marina, and not the trophy destination that Corbetena is, it is close enough to be targeted efficiently by pangas and smaller boats and it provides good action on seasonal migrators as well as resident fish.

The proximity is similar to the Marietas Islands, so it is common for boats to visit either one, or both areas, on any given day, depending on where the fish are biting.


38 kilometers (24 miles) SW of Marina Vallarta. Approximate Travel Time: 1 (1.25) hour each way.
