|Pesca Maya Fishing Lodge - Yucatan, Mexico
Pesca Maya Fishing Lodge has quickly become one of the Yucatan's most popular fishing destinations. The lodge is located 90 miles south of Cancun in the 1.3 million acre Sian Ka'an (Mayan for "where the sky is born") Biosphere Reserve. Situated on a long, narrow strip of barrier beach, the lodge is virtually surrounded by water. To the east lies the blue Caribbean and a few hundred yards off shore, the Palancar Barrier Reef which stretches from southern Belize to north of Cancun. On the western side lies the vast "El Rio" system of flats, channels and mangrove. 10 miles to the north is the famed inlet through the barrier beach known locally as the "Boca". And 4 miles to the south lays the incomparable Ascension Bay. The entire area boasts some of the Caribbean's greatest flats fishing for bonefish, permit, snook, tarpon and others, as well as reef and offshore fishing (in season). Pesca Maya Fishing Lodge is not listed with AmericanFlyFishingVacations.com.
We can take up to 20 anglers in the lodge, sharing rooms; offering our own Fly-Shop, 15 boats with the best guides in the area, and a beautiful beach where you can relax while not fishing. There are 10 rooms, all with A/C and private bathroom, most with oceanview. Located on a solitary white sand beach, turquoise water and a magnificent coral reef at 90 yards from the beach.
Variety is the word to describe Ascension Bay and Boca-Paila flats. There are hundreds of square miles where itís common to see bonefish, permit, tarpon and barracuda in the same day - all year round! There are seasons for migrating tarpon and snook Ė check for the best time. Thatís why probably more Grand Slams have been caught here than anywhere else. You certainly have to bring tackle for all these species and at least 3 rods to be ready any time.
Two guides per boat: At Pesca Maya we use a head guide and a young apprentice. Both have very good eyes. This formula helps very much when wading, each angler has a guide, when learning to cast or to see the fish, one guide poles and the other is with the angler at the casting platform, when positioning the boat and when you don't want to wade all the way back to pick up the boat. Many of our customers appreciate it very much. I hope you will too. This unique program really gives outstanding service to the fly fishing anglers. It works!
The Flats: Anglers can go south and in 15 minutes be in Ascension Bay or if the wind is too strong we can go north and find flats surrounded by mangroves that help to protect against the wind. Both places are well known for bonefish, permit, tarpon, and barracuda abundance.
