    Fishing has been popular all over the world as a hobby as well as a sport. Many people take to it as a form of relaxation and thus a fishing vacation becomes the most ideal plan for them in the holidays.

    The area that lies between the tropics of Cancer and Capricorn is called the Tropical zone. This region receives the maximum amount of sunlight as well as rainfall and is considered the most fertile on the planet. The tropical waters have always been the best hunting grounds for fish and fishing is the staple form of sustenance in the surrounding regions. Most of the fishing that is carried out in the tropical waters is commercial, however many coastal cites and villages offer tourists the chance to experience a tropical fishing vacation. The best places to engage in some tropical fishing are the coastal waters of Australia’s Northern Territories and the Caribbean countries such as Costa Rica and Belize. The islands in the Indian Ocean such as Mauritius, Andaman & Nicobar and Bali among others are destinations for fishing as well as exotic beach vacations. In North America, the Florida Keys has made a name for itself as a tropical fishing ground.

    Many tour operators provide all-inclusive vacations and fishing vacation packages to the tropics. However, not all tropical countries fall on this list, as some are hostile towards visitors or are too poor to support a tourism industry. Moreover, the tropic is usually hot and people not used to the climate can easily fall prey to the heat. Also, the tropics are a hotbed for diseases such as malaria and dengue and visitors are advised to take all necessary precautions to safeguard their health. Apart from these problems, the tropics are a haven of natural beauty with everything from secluded beaches to dense forest with some of the world’s most rare natural life. It is recommended that travelers seek out all the thrills of tropical life even if they are there just to fish.
