As we all know, Peru has a long coastline, and is home to some of the most delicious fish in the world. The warm (and sometimes cold) pacific waters help sustain thousands of varieties of edible fish, and there is no place better than Peru to try your fishing skills. of course, in most places you may need permit to fish extensively but if you are a tourist who wants to just catch a couple of fish for fun (and dinner), look no further than Peru.
Cabo Blanco is the perfect spot for you to trying your fishing skills. This quaint village is located 3 km northwest from El Alto, Talara, Piura. It is also famous for another reason. Ernest Hemingway stayed at the Cabo Blanco Fishing Club and even managed to catch a 700 pound marlin. Of course, the movie based on his novel “The Old Man and the Sea” was shot at this location.
In addition, this is a great place to surf the waves, and you can find yourself lose in the sun and the waters, while occasionally walking over to your pantry box filled with grilled fish that you caught yourself a little while ago. Cabo Blanco is known for its exceptional beauty and surfs, but what we really want you to try is the fishing. Carry fishing equipment or speak to the friendly locals who will always be willing to teach you how to fish in the sea. It can be an exhilarating experience to catch your own fish and have it by the beach, while reminiscing all the adventures you’ve had in your life.
Local villagers are used to travelers requesting them to teach fishing and if you are a novice, you do not have to worry. However, if you are an expert who fishes as a hobby, you will have the entire coastline for yourself. So, do not delay, and head towards Cabo Blanco while the sun shines bright. It does rain heavily in the area, and you might want to plan your trip depending on the weatherman’s advice.
