Value for money:

Combining excellent accommodations at the Hotel Plaza Campeche, along with a first-rate fishing program targeting tarpon in the fertile waters around Campeche, this is a great alternative to the flats fishing destinations on the Yucatan’s Caribbean coast.




The fishing

As the name would suggest, it’s all about the silver king here. Baby tarpon are the primary target, with fish ranging in size from 5 to 35lb, but there is also great sport to be had from barracuda and snook. The habitats fish can be found in range from turtle grass flats and backcountry lagoons to mangrove-lined shorelines, creeks, and bays – many of the fishing grounds are just minutes from the dock. It’s a beautiful environment, one you’ll explore from a range of spacious 18’ pangas, all of which are equipped with front casting decks.

To get the best of the fishing here, the guides recommend rods in the 7 to 9 weight range coupled with suitably lightweight tarpon flies.

Tarpon can be found year-round in these waters, although prime time is April to November.
