Kay Fly Fishing Lodge
The rooms at Kay Fly Fishing Lodge are clean and comfortable with plenty of closet space to unpack your bags and relax for the duration of your stay. Each of the 6 rooms has a private bathroom with hot water, air-conditioning at night, and ceiling fans, including five rooms with 2 double beds and one single room with a queen bed. The lodge has 24-hour electricity, Wi-Fi, and a full bar. You will find the open-air bar and dining area a perfect social setting for meals and post-fishing beverages. The lodge deck also has two sitting areas for appetizers and meals. The landscaped grounds consist of white sand and indigenous trees that provide a nice aesthetic reminder of the natural beauty of the Yucatan peninsula.
Food and Beverages
All meals are prepared by local chefs in a new, professional-grade kitchen. You will find dinners to be a blend of authentic Mayan, Caribbean, and mostly local Mexican meals and seafood. Breakfast choices include fresh fruit, eggs, meats, and pancakes, with the lodge’s traditional Huevos Rancheros the house’s specialty. Your cooler fishing lunch is typically packed with sandwiches, fruit, cookies, crackers, and cold beverages. All meals may be customized to your specific dietary needs and requests. We just ask that you fill out your Yellow Dog pre-trip questionnaire with this information so we can convey it to the lodge before you arrive. The small bar is well-stocked with various liquors, wines, sodas, mixers, and ice-cold local beers. Lunch is packed in a cooler and served on the boat: sandwiches, chips, cookies, fruit, and plenty of water, soda, and beer.
Typical Length of Stay
Most packages are requested by the lodge to span from Saturday to Saturday. For shorter trips, Pescadora at Viejo Chac does prefer that you either arrive or depart on a Saturday. That said, packages and itineraries of any length can be accommodated and anglers can arrive and depart on any day of the week based on availability.
Non-Angling Activities and Options
Kay Fly Fishing Lodge is a fishing-focused destination. That said, the lodge can accommodate eco-tourists and non-anglers looking for a laid-back Punta Allen experience. This is a locally owned destination, so everything is authentic. The lodge is located in one of the world’s largest protected wild areas – the Sian Ka’an Biosphere Reserve. The reserve covers over 1.3 million acres and has been designated by the United Nations as a World Heritage Site. The abundance of marine and wildlife in Sian Ka’an is hard to imagine until you have seen it for yourself. You can find over 325 species of birds, four different types of marine turtles, and fish species too numerous to name. The lodge can arrange for guided tours of the Biosphere and snorkeling, or you are welcome to explore the environment on your own. Day trips to Tulum can also be arranged.
Internet / Communications
The lodge offers Wi-Fi and a computer for guests. Some U.S. cell phones may work north of Tulum (Cancun and Playa del Carmen) but once you enter the Biosphere, cell service is very spotty.
