Our Lodge
Written by Sandra   

Pesca Maya Fishing Lodge opened its doors on January 1996 and has quickly become one of the Yucatan's most popular fishing destinations and with good reason. The lodge is located 90 miles south of Cancun in the 1.3 million acre Sian Ka'an Biosphere Reserve. Situated on a long, narrow strip of barrier beach, the lodge is virtually surrounded by water. To the east lies the blue Caribbean and a few hundred yards off shore, the Palancar Barrier Reef which stretches from southern Belize to north of Cancun. On the western side lies the vast "El Rio" system of flats, channels and mangroves. 10 miles to the north is the famed inlet through the barrier beach known locally as the "Boca". And 4 miles to the south lies the incomparable Ascension Bay.


We can take up to 20 guests in the lodge, sharing rooms; offering 15 boats with the best guides in the area, and a beautiful beach where you can relax. There are 10 rooms, all with A/C, most with oceanview. Located in a solitary white sand beach, turquoise water and a magnificent coral reef at 90 yards from the beach.

How to get there

You will need to fly to Cancun, Mexico, and plan on arrival between 11:00 am and 2:00 PM Cancun time. Cancun is serviced by numerous domestic carriers including American Airlines, Continental, and US Air. Direct flights are available from Miami, Dallas, Houston, Newark, Denver, LA and several other cities. Connections from most US cities permit arrivals before 2:00 PM. If you need to do reservations or check availability these are some sites that work fine:,,


Customs and Inmigration

Upon arrival in Cancun, you will first clear Mexican Immigration where you will present your passport and have your Tourist Card stamped (which is provided by your international carrier) . You must then fill out Mexican Customs Declaration Form (available at counters in the terminal), which you will need to present before departing terminal. Next you will claim your luggage and clear Mexican Customs. As you leave customs proceed to the arrival lobby


Transfer to the Lodge

As you exit customs area to the arrival lobby, a Pesca Maya representative will meet you, who will provide the transfer to the Lodge. The drive to the Lodge will take about 3 to 3 ½ hours. Due to the duration of the transfer, Pesca Maya schedules one transfer per day, usually departing Cancun around 1:30 PM. If you arrive early (11:00 am for example), you may have to wait for other guests to arrive before leaving the airport. If there are other arrivals later that day you will depart Cancun immediately. However guests arriving to Cancun after 2:00 PM, may be charged a special transfer surcharge. If the normally scheduled Pesca Maya transfer has already departed for the Lodge. If there are no other arrivals on your arrival day, Pesca Maya will schedule the transfer to your arrival time. The current special transfer surcharge is US$250.00 per vehicle trip, divided by the number of late arriving guests.

Upon arrival at the Lodge, you will be greeted by resident manager Jesus Castillo, who will assist you with luggage and show you to your room. You will have time to unpack, settle in, and take a swim or even fish from the beach before dinner at 7:00 PM
