Located on the outskirts of the remote village of Xcalak, just a few miles from the Mexican border with Belize, Xflats Lodge is an unparalleled destination for fly fishing aficionados seeking world-class angling in a secluded but safe locale. Strategically positioned on an unspoiled Yucatan beach, just a few hundred yards from the world’s second largest barrier reef and a short run from vast Chetumal Bay, the lodge presents guests with unique opportunities to sight-fish for the most exciting game species patrolling the flats: permit, bonefish, snook and tarpon, as well as barracuda, jacks and snappers, all of which seem to regularly combine their efforts to ensure visiting anglers find consistent action.
Make no mistake, Xcalak is not another tourist stop on the Mayan Riviera, but rather a tiny, out-of-the-way fishing settlement with a population barely hovering at around 400. Reaching it requires a 5 ½-hour drive south from Cancun or a charter flight to Mahahual, followed by a 50-minute drive. But Xflats, despite being nearly off-the-grid, provides spacious, air-conditioned and all-inclusive accommodations and delicious food while embracing the culture and relaxed atmosphere of the region. And you can bet owner Jesse Colton, a career fly-fishing guide, and his lodge management team will make sure you have the personalized service and every convenience necessary to enjoy your fishing getaway to the max.
