Mexico: Tarpon Cay Lodge Availability

May 12, 2022

Updated May 12, 2022

What: Tarpon Cay Lodge is located in the northern part of Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula west of Cancun in the small Mayan town of Rio Lagartos. The town is directly adjacent to a marine reserve and offers anglers excellent opportunities at catching juvenile “baby” tarpon. For anglers specifically targeting juvenile tarpon, this is possibly the best fishery in the world. The tarpon generally ranges from five to fifteen pounds with the occasional fish breaking the 25-pound mark. Anglers typically get shots at barracuda and snook in the mangroves and there are a few permit on the ocean side. Short boat runs and abundant shots and action make this destination a great opportunity for anglers of all ages and skill levels!
