​"East of Puerto San José, it’s 13km to IZTAPA, a venerable little place that’s an important base for sport-fishing. Iztapa is Guatemala’s oldest port – Spanish leader Pedro de Alvarado built boats here that took him to Peru and back. There’s little sense of this historical past in Iztapa today, but the sleepy little town does have a vague, faded charm and a nice setting on the bank of the Canal de Chiquimulilla. The sweeping black-sand beach is on the eastern side at a separate village called Pueblo Viejo – a bridge spans the canal. There’s pretty reliable surf here with right-handers and an occasional hollow, and no crowds, with only a couple of local surfers.​" according to Rough Guides.

The moderate temperatures and calm seas will provide an incredible experience for every angler. It is the best fishing spot to hit between November and May. This is the perfect location to fight the line with the Pacific Sailfish at the other end.

‘’Records on recovery after cholecystectomy of patients in a suburban Pennsylvania hospital between 1972 and 1981 were examined to determine whether assignment to a room with a window view of a natural setting might have restorative influences. Twenty-three surgical patients assigned to rooms with windows looking out on a natural scene had shorter postoperative hospital stays, received fewer negative evaluative comments in nurses' notes, and took fewer potent analgesics than 23 matched patients in similar rooms with windows facing a brick building wall.’’ according to NCBI.

The fishing is a great way to get some exercise. Spend your day hiking to a remote lake or wading in a stream, and you will get an excellent workout without going to a yoga class or going to a gym. You can have plenty of activities while fishing such as boulder hopping or climbing in the rough terrain, repeatedly reeling and casting, hiking and wading against the current in a stream.
During this hobby, you could burn from 600 to 1400 calories without knowing it. It will help you building strength in the tendons in your shins, calves, ankles, and feet and the little-used muscles. When hiking up riverbanks or steep slopes, it will also build strength in the hamstrings and quadriceps.
“You can make your fishing excursion as physical as you want. Even just getting out there, you’ll still get the benefits of the outdoors, and maybe that’s the beginning of a new fit, healthy lifestyle,” Janna Superstein, president of fly fishing company Superfly International Inc. says for the Huffington Post.

There is no better relaxation than fishing.  Staying away from your phone and computer and being out in nature will let your brain focus on one task and relax. Can you imagine something more peaceful than spending time in a mountain stream followed by a delicious dinner of grilled fish? We can’t, and if you are an angler than we think that you will agree with us.
It is just like meditation, and it will decrease depression and anxiety. Fishing will give you a chance to unplug from the radio blaring, news, traffic jam, blinking inboxes and ringing phones. It is a silent hobby where you can only hear the sounds of frogs and birds calling off in the distance and waves.
