Nestled just north of the small fishing village of Xcalak (pronounced ish-kalak), The Xflats at Tierra Maya is an exciting destination offering immediate access to the world-renowned flats of the Chetumal Bay area. The lodge is situated overlooking the ocean on a quiet and undeveloped stretch of beach, ideally situated to offer anglers incredible opportunities to focus on the “Big Three” flats species — tarpon, permit, and bonefish. Xflats is by far one of our very favorite operations in the Caribbean, with a staff and guide team that is second-to-none. This is quickly becoming one of the top Yucatan permit lodges!

Lodging Details
Tucked along the coastline with immediate access to the expansive and protected Chetumal Bay, The Xflats is a small and personable lodge operation with six beachfront suites. All rooms are set up for either single or double occupancy, and all are air-conditioned and furnished with stylish Mayan décor. The rooms offer plenty of space, breezy exterior terraces, and private bathrooms. The lodge is best described as a basic, fishing-focused operation that is ideal for anglers that appreciate great service, amazing food, experienced guides, and long days on the water. At the end of the day, the lodge’s main palapa bar and dining room, and the central outdoor lounge areas collectively offer the ideal setting to relax, drink with friends, and share the stories of the day. Our favorite aspect of the lodge is without a doubt the Xflats team: an incredible staff that works hard to deliver a fun and enjoyable Yucatan saltwater experience.

Food and Beverages
The talented kitchen team at the lodge delivers amazing cuisine that focuses on authentic local specialties and regional favorites. All meals are prepared and served in the large palapa restaurant with a setting that celebrates the companionship of fellow anglers. The bar area is the social hub of the lodge, and the perfect spot to relax after a day on the flats. Outdoor lounge areas, large tables, hammocks, and a “corn-hole” tournament area make for a fun and relaxing setting.

Typical Length of Stay
The standard package at The Xflats is seven (7) nights / six (6) fishing days, but itineraries of any length can be accommodated, and arrivals for any day of the week can also be arranged.

Non-Angling Activities and Options
While Xflats is indeed a fishing-focused operation, non-angling guests can enjoy a variety of area activities including bird watching, snorkeling, exploring Mayan ruins, beachcombing, and just plain relaxing in the small fishing village of Xcalak – a safe and laid-back town in a remote area of the southern Yucatan.

Internet / Communications
Dependable Wi-Fi is available for guests via your own device. Spotty cell phone service is available throughout the area, although reception at the lodge is poor. A satellite phone is available for a modest fee, although internet-based phone apps work well on the lodge’s system.
