First off: We had a great day fishing. Our guide, Pedro, wasn't particularly helpful or friendly, but he put us onto plenty of fish. I blew most of my chances and that's no one's fault at all.

The fishing is a walk across the street and down a boardwalk to the dock. The fishing was fantastic. Gorgeous bay, tons of shallow water flats, rimmed in mangroves.... More

I'm an editor-at-large for Field & Stream and have had the good fortune to fish from Mongolia to Alaska, the Bahamas to the Mississippi Delta. I had the single best day of saltwater fishing in my life at Boca Paila Lodge: 10 bonefish, snook of 16 and 12 pounds, a jack that must have gone 10 pounds. And a mystery... More

Set on a vast, lush beach. Boca Paila Lodge has the longest histroy and pedigree of the Yucatan fishing lodges. They offer flats fishing, kite surfing, and eco-trips. The food and service are flawless.

Of all of the lodges we host trips to Boca Paila is our favorite. It has a very dependable fishery and is a great place to take first time saltwater anglers. It is also one of the best places to catch a grand slam. Our recent trip saw our group catch 3 Gran Slams a Super Grand Slam and a... More

An extremely comfortable and professionally run lodge. I came this time in august with a friend to go fishing. The guide was great and we caught many species of fish. The rooms and service here are impeccable and the beach is fantastic. I will be back again soon
