The times they are a changin’
Holbox Flyfishing Lodge is temporarily closed
Holbox Flyfishing Lodge is currently closed as we focus on the health and welfare of our great guides and staff. We look forward to sharing this amazing place with you again soon. If you have any questions, you can reach us at firstname.lastname@example.org or at 866.411.2327. Peak season is coming, and as soon as it is healthy and prudent to do so, we’ll be back in business, showing folks the hot sun, white sand and big fish that is Isla Holbox’s stock-in-trade.
Summer season is prime time for the giant Tarpon migrating just offshore in shallow, sandy water. During the winter, Baby Tarpon are the the main target (October – March) plus Jack Crevalle and Snook are present year around as are Cobia, Snapper, Corvina and Barracudas, making for a great “grab bag” of fly fishing.
One of the world’s top fly fishing destinations, Whether spin or fly, Holbox will quickly become one of your favorites. Your guide will be waiting for you in front of the lodge at 6:00am each fishing day. and you’ll run “up island” a short distance offshore the beuatifiul white sand beaches until you find the fish and begin the day sight fishing in clear ocean or mangrove.
It is a classic fly fishing scene and with the supervision of our good guides, you will have the fight of your life. Afternoons will be spent wading the flats and poling the Mangrove Lagoons for babies, juveniles and Snook. Whether your gunning for the big boys or enjoying a lazy day casting to the babies, you’ll return to the lodge around 2:00pm.
All of our trips include transfers from the airport and ferry to and from the island. Packages also include daily breakfast, lunch in the boat (on fishing days only)…lunch is not included if you are not fishing that day – choose from one of the wonderful restaurants nearby. Amenities include fresh water rod wash station, an open cerveza bar, and nightly “nearly world famous” Happy Hour with Ceviche and handmade Margaritas.
Our manager, Luciano, is there to fulfill our “Guest Pledge” to you. He’ll begin your day with an “espresso to your door wake-up” each morning, and may end it with fresh Ceviche at happy hour as the sun goes down. His concierge service can arrange island activities that include horseback in the surf, kayaking the lagoon, sightseeing the flamingos, swimming in the Cenote, parasailing and more.
He can arrange a golf cart exploration of the island and beachfront massages… and if you want to spend the day adventuring, swim with the sharks or visit the Mayan Ruins of Chichen Itza.
