Trip of a lifetime! Mauricio did everything to put me in position to catch fish. He was very knowledgeable and it was a real learning experience. Caught my first Tarpon! We visit Cancun every year and will be using them again next year.

Good fishing trip, guide was very knowledgeable and pointed out target fish that were available to catch. Slow day fishing due to weather but caught a 30 lb. snook anyway. Would definately do this trip again.
