Yucatan is bargain priced for fishing

Grand Slam Fly Fishing Lodge : Ascension Bay Mexico

Ascension Bay Mexico

Fishing in the Yucatan is a bargain priced at the moment, but you will need to make a little effort to reach your destination. Ascension Bay is one of the last great unspoiled and undeveloped spots in the Yucatan and  is considered, by many, to have the finest flats fishing in the world for a shot at a permit and a grand slam.

The Mexican Federal Highway 307 from Cancun airport to Tulum  is an easy drive on a well maintained highway. On your two hour ride through the Riviera Maya (the Cancun-Tulum tourism corridor) you will pass through Playa del Carmen where you can stop and buy a cold drink and any other supplies you may need.

Sian Ka’an (“where the sky is born”) Biosphere Reserve

At Tulum you will turn on the Coba road going east, with access to the Sian Ka’an, Boca Paila and Punta Allen via the unpaved beach road. You will pass the Sian Kahn Park entrance – an arch made of native stone. At that point, depending on road conditions, you either take the jungle road down the Punta Allen Peninsula directly to the lodge or switch to a boat at Ceseak (CESeaK) and enjoy a boat ride to Punta Allen. Either way the total journey takes approximately one hour and is very picturesque and interesting. Soon you will arrive at the scenic ocean-side fishing village of Punta Allen where you will find the new Grand Slam Deluxe Fly Fishing Lodge.
