Fishing - Other Activity Taganga - Colombia

Every morning and every afternoon local men head out to go fishing, the traditional trade of Taganga. To try your hand at catching some bonito pargo rojo (red snapper), albacore, barracuda or shark, talk with the local fishermen about taking you out.

Or, contact Caracol about arranging a fishing trip in his boat, followed by a beach barbecue to grill your catch (Cel: 317-273-2862).

Either way, you'll be doing it as they do with just a fishing line on a roll, getting to learn about the Caribbean artisan fishing culture. Don't let that big fish get away!
