El Faro

El Faro, unlike the other popular fishing destinations in Banderas Bay, is located on the south end of the bay about 24 miles SW of Marina Vallarta. A trip to El Faro will be a great fishing trip for new and experienced fisherman alike. Common fish varieties in the area include MahiMahi/Dorado, Roosterfish, Tuna and even Sailfish.

You may not find the huge trophy level fish here, but you will enjoy the variety of species and a different location if you've visited the other well-know fishing spots in the bay.

When it's quiet in the northern bay, this southern location may be just the alternative to provide a great day of fishing.


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

Sport Fish Commonly Targeted At El Faro
