Palometa Club

Northern Ascension Bay’s Premier Fishing Lodge

This year-round fishery is the Yucatan’s hot spot to find the grand slam species and features the only two-guide-per-boat operation in the area. Having two experienced guides in your boat means that you have two times the vision to spot the fish and the knowledge to catch them. With a laid back “at home” feel to the lodge, it’s easy to relax after a day of chasing fish in the bay.
