Casa Blanca – Mexico Fly Fishing: Casa Blanca Lodge is widely considered one of the most famous and reputable fly fishing destinations in the Caribbean Ocean if not the world. Situated on the southern edge of the prominent Ascension Bay, Casa Blanca is naturally one of the best saltwater fishing destinations for those in pursuit of the Caribbean’s renowned game fish. The surrounding area and atmosphere of Casa Blanca reflects one of the last vestiges of pre-colonial Caribbean tradition meeting modern Europeanized Mexican culture.
Casa Blanca is located 120 miles south of Cancun on the northern portion of a narrow, coastal island off of the Yucatan Peninsula. The island is surrounded by the Caribbean Ocean and the Sian Ka’an Biosphere, a 1.3 million acre United Nations World Heritage Site. It is truly a wild and uncultivated landscape that is not only home to an amazing variety of wildlife but is also steeped in a rich historical tradition. Within the Sian Ka’an Biosphere, one can explore a multitude of Mayan archaeological sites including a well preserved temple that overlooks the Caribbean Ocean.
Although Casa Blanca is renowned for its secluded and private environment, the logistics of travel to and from the resort is made simple by the private airstrip located at the northern point of the island. A chartered flight directly from Cancun to the private airstrip bypasses any significant land travel thus providing ample opportunity to fish and relax.
The fishing opportunities speak for themselves as Casa Blanca has access to the very large and world renowned Ascension Bay. The lodge also provides the unique capability to access the endless fishable water of the Laguna Santa Rosa. Between the lagoon and bay fisheries, this area offers one of the best opportunities in the world to covet the rare “Grand Slam” and even rarer “Super Grand Slam”. The variety of game fish that call these waters home is unparalleled: bonefish, permit, tarpon, snook, barracuda, jacks, snapper, sharks and several different species of reef fish.
Casa Blanca ties together its unique setting, wonderful fishing opportunities and rich history with a professional, congenial staff and welcoming, spacious accommodation. Fishing the Caribbean does not get much better than this.
