And the so-called Bocas, the outer islands and channels that protect the inner flats of Las Salinas are ideal for tarpon, cubera snapper and snook fishing.
Another fishing area is the Treasure Lagoon, where you can get from Boca de Guama. Located in East Zapata Swamp, its crystal clear waters are famous for their trout population, many of great size, which makes the Lagoon the perfect place for fishing enthusiasts.
