San Pedro Resort in Florida Keys is Sport Fishing Paradise

October 2, 2014


Posted in: San Pedro

San Pedro Sun RV Resort is located in the Florida Keys. Actually, it’s in Islamorada, Village of Islands, Florida. These six islands form a community that is known as “The Sport-fishing Capital of the World.” The village is an angler's paradise and the community earns its title with 41 fishing tournaments already having been completed in the area so far this year. Notable upcoming tournaments to close out the year include fundraisers to support cystic fibrosis research and one tournament exclusively for women. Click here to check the list of tournaments for information.

Many visitors to ‘the keys’ have other passions than fishing, and Islamorada will please the sun-worshipers, swimmers, and nature lovers in all of us. Founders Park is an excellent area to spend your days in the keys. The park is a public waterfront that provides an assortment of pleasures with a white sand beach, bocci ball and tennis courts, baseball fields, and an olympic-sized pool. It’s also convenient to residents and guests of San Pedro Resort since it’s just across the street. Just down the highway you’ll find Theater of the Sea Marine Mammal Adventure Park where you can swim with the dolphins, stingrays, and sharks, if you’re so inclined.

Underwater Adventures

San Pedro is the perfect location to vacation in the keys. Just up the highway, Key Largo is known to scuba enthusiasts as “the dive capital of the world,” it’s hard to resist diving and snorkeling in the crystal waters as you explore the the worlds first underwater park. The Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park protects the only living coral reef in the continental United States and is home to the underwater statue, Christ of the Abyss. Divers can explore several shipwrecks, and even have pizza delivered to your room in the Jules Undersea Lodge.

Key West Festivals

Head the opposite direction to Key West and you’ll discover a vibrant festival atmosphere year round. The Goombay Festival in Key West’s historic Bahama Village showcases island arts, crafts, music, and food (Oct 17-18). Fantasy Fest is a “10-day adult-themed party in paradise” held Oct. 17th - 26th, in Key West. It has grown from a small party in 1988 to a wild extravaganza of costumes and floats to rival Mardi Gras.

With all the action on the island highway you can bet the hotels are booked pretty much year round. San Pedro Sun RV Resort is a good option for accommodations. It has a private boat ramp, and ten boat slips. There is also an on-site fish-cleaning station. Book your reservation now, or call (305) 289-0011 for information.
