BOOK with FRA!!
Whether you are searching for the elusive permit specifically or are just looking for the best salt-water fly fishing experience in Xcalak, Mexico down in the Yucatan, The Xflats at Tierra Maya, established in 1982, is a privately-owned saltwater fly-fishing lodge that combines the luxury of a resort, yet still maintains the casualness of beach front living. Find your paradise in the Caribbean waters of the Mesoamerican Reef, in “the flats” where permit, bonefish and tarpon thrive.
Every visit to our Mayan inspired lodge is an experience to be treasured; with a remote beachfront of over 150 feet, this year-round retreat awaits your rod and reel. Nestled just north of the rustic village of Xcalak (pronounced ish-kalak), The Xflats is immersed in the lush greenery of Yucatan’s ancient forests and harbors with an abundance of reefs, making it an exquisite tropical all-inclusive experience. The world-renowned flats of Xcalak provide a haven for saltwater fly-fishing, activities such as diving and snorkeling and the perfect spot for a well-deserved getaway.
