The crystal clear waters of Ascension Bay and Espiritu Santo Bay offer permit, bonefish, tarpon, snook and a host of other species. These two bays are located right in the heart of the Sian Ka’an National Park.
Edward Johnston of Leisure Time Travel has been to this part of the Yucatan peninsula twenty-nine times in the past twenty years and has caught 80 permit on fly at Ascension Bay. So to say the least, we have plenty of firsthand experience to share with you.
Casa Blanca Lodge, Playa Blanca Lodge and Casa Redonda Suites are three first class lodges located on the Ascension Bay. All the rooms are large and air-conditioned. There is an abundance of staff. The food is an excellent combination of Mexican, Mayan, and American dishes. The service is great. And the water is very drinkable and purified as it comes from a reverse osmosis system. These lodges access some of the last remote fisheries in the Caribean. If you are looking for a refined resort experience with luxury accommodations in remote locations, your search is over.
Pesca Maya Lodge is another prolific fishery of Ascension Bay. They have 10 rooms in three buildings, all with A/C and private bathrooms. Meals at the lodge are home-style. There are no set transfer days for this lodge so you can choose your dates according to your own schedule. You will fish primarily in Ascension Bay which we consider the permit capital of the word. On those days when it is too windy to venture out into the Bay you can fish “the Rio” located directly behind the barrier Island where the lodge is located or you can head north to Boca Palia and the Capechen lagoons. The locally made boats provide plenty of room for fishing.
If you would like to experience one of the finest saltwater flats fisheries in the world give Edward Johnston of Leisure Time Travel a call and he will put you in the right place at the right time onto your dream fish!!!
