You don't need previous training to do sport fishing in Puerto Vallarta. If you are a beginner, basic instruction in the marina where you can hire the trip will be enough to start. Start with light tackle since the line casting techniques are simpler than those in fly fishing, for example.
Anglers that are looking for sport fishing in Vallarta will require a special license issued by the Mexican Ministry of Natural Resources. The marina where you can book your trip, however, will do the paperwork for you and should be included in the price of the tour.
There is no age limit. The ability is directly related to the weight an angler can withstand when lifting a fish. Sport fishing in Puerto Vallarta is not recommended for people who are pregnant, have high blood pressure, any sort of heart diseases or epilepsy. We highly recommend doing sport fishing in Vallarta, accompanied by family or friends.
