I had a great day on the water last week with Mauricio fly fishing for tarpon (and other species). I was happy to land a nice one and had shots at several others, including additional tarpon, snook and barracuda. Mauricio was very knowledgeable and friendly. I would submit that anyone who wants to fish for tarpon on a fly be... More

Mau did a great job of keeping the fishing fun. If we didn't get a hit in one spot, after a few minutes, then off to the next! I caught 6 Barracuda, 1 Snook,, and 1 Red Snapper. Great fun! Mau always had a ready-baited pole for me when mine got snagged or lost bait. Great lunch sandwiches in the... More

I went fly fishing on 01/17/2016 with Mauricio, targeting tarpon and snook. I had some trouble casting (in part due to skill level and in part due to nerves), and it turned into a 4 hour fly fishing lesson. I was only able to land one tarpon, but I learned more that day than I did the previous 2 years... More

I went fishing with Jose Tuesday 1/12/16 and we had an amazing trip. I have fished my hole life and I will have to say Jose was one of the most knowledgeable fishing guides I have ever met. He was grate with my 8 yr old nephew. Jose went above and beyond helping my nephew learn to cast.

We had initially planned on deep sea fishing, however, the Sea was very rough and we decided against it. I contacted Martin regarding changing to lagoon fishing, and boy was I glad that we did! He was very accomodating to my request, was able to bring 2 extra fishermen, and we even caught fish! Mauricio was our guide, and he... More

Martin booked our trip and Mau was our guide. The entire experience was great and Mau did an amazing job of guiding us to some great fishing. Mau allowed us to Fly and Reel whenever we chose and was very flexible. Great experience and look forward to doing it again!

We had a phenomenal time fishing with Cancun Tarpon Fishing. I went on both 12/21/15 and 12/23/15 with my father and father-in-law as well as nephew (age 13) and two sons (ages 9 and 6). We had a blast. We caught tarpon, snook, jacks, barracuda, google-eye jacks, etc. Particularly impressive was Mauricio, one of the captains: he was the most... More

Booked a 4 hour trip with Martin and Jose was our guide. I was just tagging along with my husband who loves to fish but I ended up catching a lovely Jack! My husband also caught one and several barracudas. Jose has a great eye for the water and definitely can find the fish!

I was amazed at the quality of inshore fishing so close to the urban eyesore that is the cancun hotel zone. Fishing with Mauricio was a blast. You can tell when someone loves their job. I had a great time pitching baits under ( an in) the mangroves for tarpon. Also caught barracudas, snappers, Jack's and lady fish. I have... More
