The Caribbean’s finest light tackle fishing at Playa Blanca Lodge. Serious Grand Slam territory in the Yucatan! Big bones, tarpon, and plenty of permit. World record permit fishing in Ascension Bay, Sian Ka’an tarpon lagoons and Espiritu Santo Bay. This extraordinary Lodge is located on the Caribbean Sea between Ascension Bay and Espiritu Santo Bay in the Yucatan Peninsula. If you want to go there give us a call, we have visited Ascension Bay and Espiritu Santo Bay thirty times since 1990. Premium space is always scarce. If you have been there then you know already, if you haven’t been, then go now!
Just remember, Edward Johnston told you!
Yucatan Fishing at it’s finest.
Playa Blanca is nestled on a private beach between Ascension Bay and Espiritu Santo Bay in the Yucatan peninsula of Mexico.
Its only neighbors are the abundant wildlife that inhabit the area and the ancient Mayan ruins scattered through the jungle. It is difficult to imagine that such a beautiful lodge could be built so far away from civilization, but believe it!
The lodge sits within the protective boundaries of the Sian Ka’an Reserve. Sian Ka’an, Mayan for Where the sky is born, is a 1.3 million-acre natural reserve along the central coast of the province of Quintana Roo. Playa Blanca Lodge is on the threshold of the next great fishing frontier and offers access to areas that were until recently inaccessible and virtually unfished. This is Yucatan Fishing at it’s finest.
A short 45 minute flight from Cancun lands you at Hualaxtoc near Casa Blanca lodge. From there you will take a short five minute boat ride and then a 20 minute truck ride along the coast of Isla Casa Blanca within sight of the sparkling turquoise waters lapping against the white coral sand beaches of the Caribbean sea. Groups of up to ten guest will be accommodated in the seaside lodges.
The Playa Blanca lodge is a place to enjoy life at natures pace. The resort delivers seclusion and intimacy. You can simply relax or enjoy a wide range of activities. Couples and honeymooners will enjoy the romantic ambience of the beach. Snorkeling enthusiasts can cruise over the endless coral reef.
The rooms are large and well appointed with all the modern amenities. The cottages have terra cotta floors, large bathrooms with marble vanities, and natural wood furnishings, set in white interiors with tropical accents. All rooms have patios overlooking carefully tended grounds and the ocean.
Guest dine in a comfortable setting with a view of the ocean. The food is excellent, the service is good, and the water is very drinkable being purified by a reverse osmosis system. The electric power source is solar and wind with a backup generator.
Playa Blanca Lodge accesses one of the last remote fisheries in the Caribbean. The area is a sprawling collection of clear saltwater flats, crystalline mangrove shorelines, secluded lagoons, and scattered mangrove islands. Both Espirito Santo Bay and
Ascension Bay have a rare combination of environmental elements which create the ideal infrastructure for an abundance of wildlife. Nowhere else in the world is this extraordinary combination of unique tropical habitats in such proximity.
The area is especially well-suited for the winter months because of its relative protection from the north winds. Anglers will enjoy the fact that there is a place to fish no matter how hard the wind is blowing. Anyone who has been blown off the water for a week in the Caribbean knows how important this is.
Permit and bonefish can be found year round. Permit and bonefish are taken from the skiff or by wading mile upon mile of hard sand. Tarpon are caught throughout the year, but May and June is probably the best time if tarpon is your primary quarry. Limited numbers of snook have been taken from the numerous mangrove lagoons and brackish estuaries.
