The Yucatan Peninsula in Mexico boasts excellent Bonefish in Ascension Bay and now adds superb Tarpon fishing to their white sand beach flats fishing. Holbox Fly Fishing Lodge is the perfect combination of warm water fly fishing and superb beach front accommodations.
Holbox Fly Fishing Lodge is the only property on Holbox Island dedicated to fly fishing enthusiasts and their non fishing partners. Anglers and guides pursue big Tarpon, Cobia, Sea Trout, Barracuda and some Permit in in clear gulf waters and endless flats. Holbox also has a prolific baby tarpon and snook fishery in the Yalahao Lagoon which separates Holbox from the mainland. Yalahao is rife with mangrove forests lining the lagoons.
Non fishing partners mix horseback riding on the beach, sweet water cenote swimming, kayaking, windsurfing, birding and island exploration with hours of relaxation on the empty white sand beaches of this undiscovered island. You can also mix in a trip to Mayan Ruins or snorkel with the whale sharks. Many Anglers also choose to extend with a Bone Fishing trip to Ascension Bay.
The services you will receive at Holbox Fly Fishing and Adventure Lodge have been honed through 25 years operating similar fishing and adventure lodges in Alaska and Costa Rica. Lodge Manager – Luciano , will mix your favorite drink while he settles you into the lodge. He will explain in detail your schedule and you will learn about the weather, fishing, wake ups, guides, meals, happy hour and all the other things that will allow you to settle in as quickly as possible. Please expect to be pampered!
The lodge does not accept many guests so that they can focus personal and professional service on you. Luciano will be your concierge, personal guide to the island, bartender, alarm clock, computer guru and world traveled story teller. He will also be your “go to” guy to solve any last minute fishing issues that always seem to pop up. And he will keep the “OPEN CERVEZA BAR” well stocked with your favorites.
Food is always an important part of any vacation and Holbox will not disappoint you. You will be able to watch the daily catch brought in to the beach. The Gulf of Mexico provides superb seafood that are on the menu at the several nearby restaurants,lobster, shrimp, calamari and the freshest of fish. An Italian presence has been on the island for many years resulting in excellent European cuisine that provides the island’s continental flare alongside the classic Mexican food. A continental breakfast at the lodge will begin each day and lunch is served on the boats on fishing days. Happy hour includes signature hors d’ oeuvres and all other meals are on your own in the local restaurants a 5 minute walk from the lodge
The lodge is a beautiful property on a tiny undiscovered and charming island in the Gulf of Mexico. The beachfront location affords privacy, a gentle breeze, and a terrace view that will stamp your memory as one of the more unforgettable of your travel career. The rooms are modern, upbeat and air conditioned. Comfortable lounge furniture is available for deck or sand relaxing and the hammocks allow you to siesta “Island Style” . An outside shower with a Conch Shell spout pours warmish water over sandy feet and sweet water rod rinsing station helps you care for the gear.
