Despite having torrential rains for the first 2 days of a 3 day trip, our guide, Henry Rodriguez, and his assistant, Rosendo Briseno, persevered. Great eyes, always aware of the wind direction, strong on the push pole, very fishy guides-everything you want for a fly fishing guide. I've also had Pancho Xec in the past, and he is very good,...

My wife and I just returned from a four night stay with four days fishing at Pesca Maya. Objectively, I was down at PM last year and wrote a review then under the same profile that I'm using today. I loved it then and love it now. I'll do my best to break down transports, fishing, dining, accommodations and anything... More

In connection with a spring break trip to Playa del Carmen, I booked a day trip to Pesca Maya for me and my teenage kids. I had been to Pesca Maya the year before for a multiday fly fishing trip and wanted to share the experience with them. The van picked us up on time in PDC and we stopped... More

My husband and I recently spent a week at Pesca Maya and fished 6 days. We have nothing but great remarks for the lodge and guides. We chose this location because of the reputation for catching large numbers of fish. We were not disappointed. Since it had been over 7 years since we last went bone fishing, we wanted some... More

I went for a day trip fishing and brought my wife along to see some wildlife and enjoy the views while I fished. We are both Canadian and I fish a lot in lakes and rivers. We were picked up from our resort and dropped off the same day. The shuttle stopped at several resorts and was full heading in... More

I went for a one day fishing trip and felt it was not worth the money. I have fished with many guides before but never had one that gave you the feeling of not caring if you caught fish or not. Phillipe's first mate let the fly line go under the boat or stepped on it while I was casting... More

This fishing lodge has a special place in my heart for a number of reasons. Although getting to the lodge requires driving about an hour down a not-so-great gravel road, the fishing experience you will enjoy is much worth the drive. The location is secluded and absolutely beautiful. You're sure to catch the fish of your life at this lodge!

While vacationing in Cancun I booked a two day fishing trip to Pesca Maya Lodge. It included a one night stay at the lodge. I had previously done a day trip from Cancun to Pesca Maya back in March 2013. So this was a return trip with the intention of staying the night and fishing two days. Fishing was okay,... More

When we arrived at Pesca Maya on the morning of Sunday, November 23rd and prior to fishing, we tried to pay the lodge manager Jesus, who told us that we should wait until that evening. At 8pm that evening we were asked to settle the bill, which was more than double what we had agreed to and expected to pay.... More
