Rio Lagartos Adventures is my family business and we are located in the Ria Lagartos

 Biosphere Reserve in Rio Lagartos, Yucatan.(This is where I grew up)The Bio reserve

 is one of the  best Tarpon Fishing areas in the world and it is in our back yard.Together

with my sons Diego jr. and Jorge we concentrate on giving small groups of fishermen

 great fishing.My wife Matilda takes care of the great food part in our  Ria Maya Restaurante 

We are now in our permanent location and the restaurant has been remodeled and 
a new second story dining room added.

We have a choice of hotels in Rio Lagartos which

now includes our new 4 room bed and breakfast Posada Diego and Matildé

and the three room Ria Maya Birding and Fishing Lodge


In addition to Tarpon we have  a wide variety of species to pursue in Rio Lagartos using

the full range of light tackle.The Gulf of Mexico waters along our coast are very productive.

If you are the adventurous type we will take you to the most isolated and we believe the

 best bone fishing in Mexico.(beach camping-no lodges)


To me, all the photos in the website bring back great memories.

Come fish with us and we'll send you home with your own great memories!

Please feel free to call or e-mail me for any information.

 The tarpon above was landed after a three hour fight that started about a mile from

                                        the beach.It was the first tarpon for Johan,a seasoned flyfisherman, from Holland.

                                       We worked the 65 kilo giant to the beach to land it for photos without injuring the fish.

                                         It was revived and released.More photos of this catch on the Big Tarpon page





                                               Baby Tarpon are abundant here all year long.We fish them in the protected waters

                                       of the estuary.Spin casting  for these powerful acrobatic fish is also great sport.

                                       We can always show you the fish and put you on top of them.We can' t always make

                                       them bite.! This  is also an excelent place to learn the art of salt water flats flyfishing.

                                       As guides it's part of our job to teach.We have many experienced fresh water flyfishers          

                                       That come to learn.Baby Tarpon page 



                                For bonefish we will take you to the most isolated bonefish spot in the Yucatan.Too distant from 

                                any town or accomodation to make day trips possible, we set up camp on the beach and carry

                                everything we need with us.We make just three trips each year with a maximum of 4 fishermen.
