Boca Paila

Boca Paila is the quintessential exotic tropical flats destination. Located on the Yucatan Peninsula, just two hours south of bustling Cancun, this remote and beautiful area is easy to get to and, once there, you will experience one of the most relaxing fishing holidays imaginable.

Situated on a narrow stretch of land, with the Caribbean surf less than 50 yards to the east and the expansive flats and lagoons 100 yards to the west, Boca Paila’s nine serene and spacious cottages overlook endless miles of white sandy beach. Each has two queen sized beds and an ensuite bathroom. Owned and run by the Gonzales family, and their capable staff, the lodge continues to receive rave reviews. Old Mexico charm, warm hospitality, comfortable bungalows and meals served in the air-conditioned dining room are just a few of the features that will make a visit to this lodge a memorable fishing experience.

Knowledgeable guides meet you each morning at the dock where you can begin casting to numerous species within minutes; the majority of fishing is from boats. While bonefish are abundant, Boca Paila is the location of choice for those who want a permit on the fly. It is not uncommon to cast to a dozen of these elusive fish each day, offering one of the greatest challenges in the fishing world.

Diversity is another of the fishery’s attractions. Species such as tarpon, snook, barracuda, jack crevalle and cubera snapper are commonly taken. The lodge offers well-maintained and comfortable Dolphin skiffs with 40-hp motors from which to pursue your quarry.

Boca Paila is an ideal spot for the serious fisherman travelling with a non-fishing companion. The beach, right at your doorstep, offers a private sanctuary in the sun. Guests can snorkel and dive on the nearby Palancar Reef or visit the mystical Mayan ruins of Tulum, Coba and Xcaret. The adventurous can explore the Sian Ka'an Biosphere Reserve, a 1.3 million acre nature reserve. Boca Paila is a rare combination of relaxing solitude, extraordinary fishing and warm, personalised service all at a very reasonable price.
