Chase the grand slam of fishing on this six day trip in Cuba on the pristine waters surrounding Cayo Largo Island with lodging, meals and drinks included. The warm Cuban climate, virtually untouched ecosystem, wide variety of fish and five-star accommodations make this the perfect fishing getaway.

Spend six days fishing the clear Cuban waters of Cayo Largo Island for bonefish, permit, tarpon and more with five-star lodging, meals and guiding included. This secluded fishing area makes for a great escape and an even better fishing adventure you will remember for a lifetime.

Cayo Largo Fishing

Peak fishing season is from February to June, when all species are present in the area. Tarpon, bonefish, permit and jack will all be encountered during these months. The migratory tarpon, weighing in at 80 to 100 pounds (averaging 15 to 30 pounds) are regularly spotted and shots at permit are very frequent. Peak season is the best time to try for a Gland Slam. Numerous Grand Slams are achieved each season as well as a few Super Grand Slams (tarpon, bonefish, permit and snook).

In the late season, the weather gets hot but the fishing is still very productive, especially for tarpon and permit. Angling for bonefish is also very good in the morning and in the evening. Statistics indicate a very surprising summer phenomenon: that the same number of fish are caught during the hot months, but by half the number of rods. This illustrates in detail how fabulously productive the summer months are for anglers in Cayo Largo.


Each morning a shuttle van will pick up anglers from in front of the main lobby entrance and shuttle the group to the island’s marina area, located only ten minutes from the hotel. All fishing gear, rods, and other equipment can be left at the marina for the week, making the daily transfers quick and easy.

The typical package starts on Saturday and ends on Friday. Additional days in Havana or on other parts of the island can easily be arranged and itineraries can be fully customized. Combo trips between Cayo Largo and other fishing areas are also available.

Boats and Equipment

The fishing boats used by this outfitter are equiped with Yamaha 60 or 70HP motors, comfortable seats and poling platforms for the guides. Radios and life jackets are carried aboard every skiff. It is recommended that anglers bring their own fishing equipment. Flies, leaders, tippet, all terminal tackle and all accessories should be packed, as very few items are available anywhere in Cuba.

Non-Angling Activities

Snorkeling, scuba diving, beachcombing and just relaxing on the white sand beach or next to the resort swimming pool are all available. Cayo Largo is very secluded and there are no nearby towns or private residences, making it truly a place to get away from it all.


Internet service is available at the resort's business center, which means that you can check emails while on Cayo Largo. Be aware, however, the internet service is very slow and at times frustrating. Keep in mind that U.S. cell phones currently do not work anywhere in Cuba. Satellite phones are strictly prohibited in Cuba and will be confiscated at the airport on arrival

About the Outfitter

The incredible Cayo Largo fishery has been under the management of this outfitter since 2008. They are one of the few companies in the world that can offer its guests the unique ability to fish in a completely exclusive marine park, free of commercial fishermen, nets or any skiffs or yachts from other companies. Think about the incredible possibilities of having all those nautical kilometers to yourself and being able to choose the species and the places you want to fish, without any fuel limitation during your fishing week!

Traveling to Cuba

As of January 2015, Americans need to certify they are traveling to Cuba through one of the 12 approved categories set by the U.S. Treasury and Commerce Departments. These categories include educational, humanitarian, journalistic, scientific and religious trips. You may then decide you want to add some fishing in the mix as well. Traveling to Cuba solely as a tourist (or an angler) remains prohibited but we highly advise you consider this fishing experience! It is more than worth the effort.

Cayo Largo Island

Cayo Largo, "Long Island", sits in the south central region of the Cuban Archipelago and is one of the last virtually untouched ecosystems left on the planet. With 17 miles of fine white sand beaches, the surrounding ocean produces a spectacular kaleidoscope of colors, from incredible shades of ocean blue to the stunning pastels of turquoise and green.

The bounty of nature found at Cayo Largo is a well-kept secret. It has resilient coral reefs and is complemented by neighboring keys inhabited by numerous species of flora and fauna, among them iguanas, pelicans and turtles. When you arrive to Cayo Largo, you will be surprised to find a natural environment that has scarcely changed over the last 1,000 years.

The closest major air hub is in Havana, Cuba (HAV).

Weather Conditions

The climate in Cuba is warmer than in the Bahamas, with an average temperature of 75 degrees Fahrenheit in January. These fair weather conditions during the mid-winter months are very good for fly fishing the Cayo Largo flats. August has an average temperature of 83 degrees Fahrenheit and is the hottest month in Cuba. There is invariably a pleasant sea breeze, but occasionally stronger winds can be experienced.
