Day-by-Day Itinerary

Day 1


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.
Day 2

Day 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. 
Day 7

Departure Day

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.
