More on this fly fishing destination:

Ascension Bay, Mexico gets anglers fired up for several reasons. Among the reasons most frequently referenced are permit, bonefish, tarpon, and snook. Of course you can mix in several other critters, but at the least, dreams of grand slams and super slams often bring Ascension Bay’s fish-rich flats to mind.

What’s more, this region is rich with culture, history, and natural resources. Anglers chasing Ascension Bay fly fishing fantasies typically fly into Cancun then trek south several hours. In doing so, anglers pass through Tulum and local ancient Mayan ruins. While history enthusiasts, dooms-dayers, and tourists venture to the area to see the remarkable ruins, for anglers, this is a very worthwhile stop en route to the final destination.

Visitors to Ascension Bay also travel through the Sian Ka’an Biosphere Reserve. A UNESCO (United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization) World Heritage Site, the Sian Ka’an is the largest protected area in the Mexican Caribbean and is home to an abundance of bird and mammal species as well as endangered sea turtle species.

Finally, the flats of Ascension Bay deliver the species of fish that make for a trip-of-a-lifetime and the beauty that Caribbean-goers fantasize about. White sands and warm turquoise flats. Hermoso.
