With Rio Lagartos Adventures
. Welcome to :
Fly fishing in the Yucatan with Diego Nuñez & Sons
We Now have 3 new waterfront rooms for fishermen
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.
