I recently fished in the Flor de Caña International Tournament, hosted annually by Marina Puesta del Sol (the name means “sunrise marina” in Spanish). Even though I’ve fished throughout Mexico, Guatemala, El Salvador and Costa Rica, this was my first trip to Nicaragua. Puesta del Sol certainly offers one of those interesting contradictions of life in Central America: Just when you’re certain that your driver is hopelessly lost, after traveling for hours down a mostly paved two-lane road, which became a single cobblestone lane, which in turn narrowed to a jungle-laden dirt path for the final half-hour, you catch sight of your final destination, looming at the end of the trail. When you reach this point at last, you’ll find an amazing surprise. The property offers a full-service marina, a restaurant and 19 spacious suites located in two large colonial-style buildings. The buildings overlook a large saltwater estuary in the shadow of the San Cristóbal volcano, which makes for a spectacular sunrise.
