Our sailfishing experience is second to none, ranked #2 in the world by Sport Fishing Magazine.

For the adventurous anglers, offshore trips offer heart-pounding action targeting massive pelagic fish.  The lodge’s proximity to the Sierra Madre Mountains creates deep waters teeming with migratory trophy fish like Marlin, Tuna, Sailfish, Mahi Mahi (dorado), Wahoo, and Barracuda. Meanwhile, inshore trips closer to the lodge allow beginners to enjoy a variety of aggressive species like Roosterfish, Sierra, Spanish Mackerel, and Skipjack Tuna.

Resting along a half-moon-shaped beach, the fishing lodge offers an authentic old-world Mexico experience.

Enjoy comfortable rooms with private bathrooms and air conditioning. Savor mouth watering Mexican cuisine, including fresh-caught tuna sashimi, all prepared by our talented chef.

Best of all, you’ll have the waters to yourself, away from the crowds of popular destinations.

Experience the charm of rural Mexico, where it’s not required, but knowing a bit of Spanish can enhance your communication with the friendly locals.
