Light Tackle and Tarpon Fly Fishing
Holbox is famous for giant Tarpon Fishing. The island is located at the northern tip of the Yucatan Peninsula. The area has Giant Tarpon Fishing opportunities throughout the summer months out off the island and has plenty of smaller lagoons and mangrove shorelines offering more great fly fishing opportunities all year long.
If you are visiting the Yucatan or the Cancun area you do not want to let this opportunity pass you by. It is an experience of a lifetime and it is an incredible location to fish for the Giant Tarpon. Unlike Florida, these fish are not pressured and sought after by thousands of boats and anglers. Day trips are not available due to the logistics. You get to Holbox, stay the night, fish the next day, and return to Cancun after your fishing trip. Or, stay another day if you'd like.
If you have non angler companions with you, Holbox it is a beautiful place to visit without fishing and is just a relaxing old Mexico fishing village.
