WORLD CLASS BABY TARPON FISHING, HISTORIC OLD TOWN CAMPECHE & WONDERFUL CUISINE

Campeche and the Los Petenes Biosphere Reserve have quietly earned the reputation as a world-class baby tarpon fishery. The reserve is an ecologically diverse mix of grass-covered flats, mangrove lined rivers and open water bays. Located on the western shore of the Yucatan Peninsula, Campeche was designated as a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1999 due to the large number of historic landmarks; home to wonderful architecture, excellent restaurants and the friendly local atmosphere. Campeche, a great place for fishing and non-fishing alike.

Fishing

Baby tarpon, like larger adults, put on a spectacular aerial show when hooked. Miguel Encalada and his guide team fish from traditional flats skiffs. They seek tarpon which lazily roll on the surface of open waters and bays or ambush bait in the mangrove lined rivers and shoreline pockets.
