Holbox Flyfishing Lodge

After a lifetime of traveling the world in search of the world's best beach, coldest Margarita and sweetest waters to cast a fly over,  Laurence came upon Isla Holbox.

After traveling the "Mexican Riviera" for 4 decades, from Isla Mujeres in the North, to Ascencion Bay to the south, it wasn't until "Lorenzo" and Deb took the ferry to Isla Holbox that his search was over.  The waters of Isla Holbox, Mexico are truly some of the most beautiful in all the world, and Holbox Fly Fishing Lodge is your destination to explore them. The flats around the island are Mexico's hottest Giant Mexican Tarpon fishery, and the talcum powder white beaches, aquamarine waters and wonderful Island vibe take it all over the top. 

Just 100 miles and one short ferry ride away from the bustling beach town of Cancun, (yet worlds away) Holbox Island may be the perfect place to leave your "day to day" behind. The Yucatan Peninsula has been one of sport fishing's premier destinations for decades, and now our superb Tarpon fishing has cemented it's reputation as a place to add to every traveling angler's "bucket list".  Holbox Fly Fishing Lodge is the perfect combination of warm water fly fishing and superb beach front accommodations.

Mexican Tarpon Fishing

Unlike most world class destinations, Holbox Fly Fishing Lodge combines some of the planet's most epic fly waters with an out of the way, one of a kind non-fishing destination that would be legendary if there were not a single fish within miles...but boy, are there!  The beaches are legendary for sun lovers (one of the world's best), the Island itself defines the laid back but sophisticated Island vibe, and the scenery and wildlife is simply world class.  Our lodge is the only property on Holbox Island dedicated to fly fishing enthusiasts and their non fishing partners. Anglers and guides pursue huge adult Tarpon during the spring, summer and fall months as well as baby Tarpon, Cobia, Sea Trout, Snook, Barracuda and occasionally Permit in the clear gulf waters, endless flats and mangrove lagoons. You may even choose to create the ultimate combination trip with an extension targeting the Bonefish of Ascension Bay or diving of Cozumel.Palapas on the Beach

Non - fishing partners have a number of options to choose from- check our "couples Trip 1 & 2" for two great options.  Non fishing activities are great...try horseback riding on the beach, "sweet water" cenote (freshwater) swimming, Whale shark viewing trips, jungle or oceanfront kayaking, birding and Island exploration with hours of relaxation on the empty white sand beaches of this undiscovered island. Some of the itineraries include a trip to the incredible ruins of Chichen Itza, and viewing the pink flamingos that gather here each year. 

Trip Logistics.....

Trips include pickup at the airport in Cancun or at your Cancun Hotel.  Private van transfer to the seaport of Chicquila is about 2 to 2 1/2 hours through a fascinating, rural countryside.  Once you reach Chiquila, you'll board a small boat for the quick transfer to the captivating Island of Holbox.  There you'll be met by your lodge manager and travel the final distance by golf cart to your beachfront home for your stay.  (Golf carts are the only means of transportation on the island, other than of course small boats and your own two feet!  Once at the lodge, you'll be pampered by our Lodge manager, who will see to every detail of your experience, all while making his famous shots of morning espresso, Snook Ceviche or lobster Quesadillas.  Our over 30 years of experience delivering sport fishing and adventure travel experiences from Alaska to Costa Rica is your assurance of a successful trip.

As we begin our 2nd decade of operation on the incredible sands of Holbox Island, we hope you'll visit soon.
