The Rancho la Aguja marine facilities are now open to sports fishermen for beach launching, retrieval, washdowns and secure storage for their marine equipment. The adjacent Playas Pacificas development offers an ideal home-base for marine activities, from kite surfing to down-rigging for marlin - together with preferred resident rates.
The secure onsite boating, shore and bluewater-fishing support facilities at Rancho la Aguja add significantly to mid-Pacific recreational access and the attraction of Playas Pacificas as a residential base for both serious and recreational anglers and boaters.
Fishing varies from fair to excellent, depending on the season, with some of the most productive offshore grounds on the Pacific side of Baja found here: world-renowned tuna grounds at the Morgan, Potato and Finger Banks, old mossyback cows out at the Lusitania Banks. Closer to shore there are good numbers of tuna, wahoo, dorado, yellowtail, groupers and snappers.
