Mayazul Lodge is perched at the mouth of Ascension Bay in Mexico. Protected within UNESCO Heritage Sian Ka'an Biosphere, Ascension Bay is revered as one of the most prolific and diverse bonefish, permit, snook, and juvenile tarpon fisheries -- among many other species in the Caribbean. Each day, anglers gather beachfront from the newly renovated lodge in custom-kitted pangas for a full day on the flats, and return to beachside cocktails and fish-tales. This is a permit paradise with consistent opportunities for bonefish and other species. The level of quality and service sets this lodge apart.
Ascension Bay is revered as one of the most prolific and diverse flats fisheries in the Caribbean with bonefish, snook, and juvenile tarpon; but the true treasure is the permit population. Anglers fish with two guides to each custom panga to maximize each opportunity.
The lodge is on a beachfront property and has been fully renovated with indigenous materials. It offers exquisite ocean views accompanied by an open bar and a la carte menu featuring local fare from the sea. Accommodations include 4 air-conditioned ensuite double rooms with 2 queen beds.
A 6-8 weight setup for bonefish and 9-10 weight for permit, tarpon, and snook with tropical floating lines. Flats-style wading boots are suggested. We will provide a comprehensive gear list, including flies, upon confirmation.
