Casa Blanca Lodge has received rave reviews from anglers since it opened more than 20 years ago. Located on the island of Punta Pajaros within the Sian Ka'an Biosphere Reserve, the guides have access to both Ascension Bay and the Santa Rosa lagoon. The biosphere's stringent regulations and Casa Blanca's strict catch-and-release policy ensure great fishing for years to come. Casa Blanca and its sister lodge, Playa Blanca, are the only lodges in the Yucatan fishing from traditional flats skiffs. Fish from the boat or wade the hard white sand flats.
Though it is primarily a bonefish and permit destination, tarpon and snook also inhabit Ascension Bay. With its rivers, mangrove-lined lagoons and classic white sand flats, the bay is a marvel of tropical diversity, offering the fisherman a memorable fishing experience.
Nine spacious, air-conditioned waterfront rooms are featured with tile floors, comfortable beds and private bathroom with shower. The main lodge and sitting area is a thatched roof palapa; a perfect place to eat meals and rehash your day over drinks.
As a general rule, a 7- or 8-wt. outfit for the bonefish, 9- or 10-wt. outfit for the permit, both with tropical saltwater floating lines. A complete gear list will be sent upon confirmation. Frontiers can provide expert advice on finding the right gear for your trip.
The lodge is accessed from Cancun via a 55-minute charter flight followed by a short boat ride from the airstrip to the lodge. For your arrival flight, the lodge needs you in Cancun by 2pm and for your departure, book your flight any time after 11am.
Activities for non-anglers include snorkeling, swimming, sea kayaking, Mayan Ruins tour of the 2 sites on the island, eco tour and bicycling.
You must possess a passport valid for 6 months after the last day of the trip.
