Isla Blanca is located 35 minutes North of Cancun and is the gateway to the Mar Caribe Biosphere – an expansive fishery covering 50 nautical miles from Rio Manatee (north of Cancun) all the way to Cabo Catoche (the line where the Caribbean meets the Gulf of Mexico). This fishery provides year-round opportunities for juvenile tarpon, snook, permit, an occasional bonefish, and access to offshore migratory tarpon during the summer months. The fishery is an expansive system of sandy flats, mangroves, and back-country lagoons. Packages can be arranged in conjunction with the Palladium Resort located on the water north of Cancun and just minutes from the fishery – a great option for couples or families, or with the Urban Central Hotel downtown for more fishing-focused anglers.
Upon arrival at Cancun’s international airport & after clearing customs & immigration, a representative from Fin Chasers will be awaiting you ready to take you in their fully sanitized private van, for a ride of no more than 30 to 45 minutes, depending on the lodging of choice
