This package includes seven days and seven nights of lodging with three days of fishing in Isla Holbox, Mexico. Trip includes transfers to and from the airport, breakfast, boat lunches, happy-hour margaritas and three days of fishing for two.
You will be picked up at your hotel in Cancun or the airport. Your private van will take you through the jungle of the Yucatan to the island of Holbox. At the village of Chiquila you will board a private boat for the thirty minute ride to the beach in front of your home for the next few days. The manager will meet you on the beach and welcome you to the island and the lodge. You are soon to experience some great Holbox winter fly fishing.
DAYS 1-6 - FISH 3 DAYS
This combination of fishing and island living is designed to provide the best angling opportunity in the Holbox winter flyfishing when the offshore breezes can affect casting. You can consult with our manager each evening and decide if the next day will be productive for fishing. Thus you get to "Select" 3 days of the next 6 to fish to get your best chance at landing Tarpon and Snook. The Tarpon and Snook gather nearby in clear shallow water and feed on the migrating bait fish and you will chase and intercept schools while presenting your fly in hopes of jumping a hungry Baby Tarpon, Permit or Snook. Those days that you aren't fishing you'll explore and enjoy this unique island in the sun---Named 1 of the "10 Best Adventure Islands" by National Geographic.
Your Last Day- You will rise late for a delightful last breakfast and a special espresso on the terrazzo. Depart mid morning from the lodge by small ferry boat for your connecting van to Cancun or your next fishing stop on the Yucatan Peninsula. We can arrange extension trips to bone fishing lodges in Ascension Bay. You may also charter a small plane for the flight to the Cancun Airport from the little airfield on the island.
FOOD ON YOUR TRIP
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 seafoods that are on the menu at the several nearby restaurants, including 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" .
