Chetumal is located on the Belize border in the northwest corner of Chetumal Bay – an extensive water body of approximately 1615 miles and encompasses the well-known and famed fisheries around Xcalak in Mexico and Ambergris Caye in Belize. The fishery around Chetumal City sees very light fishing pressure compared to other areas in the region. The waters north of Chetumal are incredibly diverse and have all of the Grand Slam species available offering year-round opportunities for bonefish, tarpon, permit, and snook. Fly Fishing Chetumal can accommodate up to six anglers with space for additional non-anglers as well. Fly Fishing Chetumal is one of the only entities specializing in guided fly fishing packages in these waters. Packages can be arranged at the beautiful Villa Marcela Calderitas Oxtankah located on the water about 20 minutes north of the city or at one of several downtown hotel locations for more budget-minded, fishing-focused anglers.
