    To fish, you don't need a license, to POSESS fish and you're a foreign national, you're supposed to, according to my recollection of the law, it's not enforced though

    If you are fishing off a charter boat it's usually covered whether the capt really buys one for you I am not sure maybe they just pocket the money and deliver lip service. As far as i have fished there very many times I have not been bothered by any Fedelrales even on the surf, I would suggest you buy one just in case because you are in a foreign country. Years ago there's an American (forgot his name) who have a little fishing guide service booth to go fishing for roosterfish on the surf he sell them at Mar De Cortez hotel in Cabo. He has some world records then with the IGFA.
