Discover the hidden gem of Campeche City, a secluded destination nestled along the Western Yucatan shoreline, boasting over 80 miles of untouched mangrove preserve. This pristine area is shaped by hundreds of creeks, backcountry waters, and brackish water channels, making it Mexico’s most prolific baby tarpon fishery. Campeche, a charming town with Mayan and Spanish history, offers more than just a fishing trip – it’s a unique experience.

Contrary to bustling tourist hubs, Campeche receives as many tourists in a year as Cancun does in a week. Our new lodge, situated in the Historical District, three blocks from the bay, embraces the 17th-century colonial city’s well-preserved charm, constructed behind stone walls to ward off pirate attacks.

With a population of around 300,000, Campeche exudes a laid-back feel, preserving a harmonious blend of Mayan-Spanish Conquest history, architecture, culture, and traditions. Recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the city reflects a commitment to conservation principles.

Accessing this unique destination is effortless. A quick flight of less than two hours via United Airlines from Houston to Merida (MID) provides easy access, with alternative routes through Miami or Dallas with American Airlines and a newly added route from Atlanta with Delta. Once landed, our drivers ensure a calm and smooth 1 hour and 50-minute journey along a four-lane freeway, leading you directly to our Lodge, ready to embark on your fishing adventure the next morning.
