Back for the third year in a row, we had a top flight experience, as we've come to expect. Greg and Lupita welcomed us as old friends with magagaritas at the ready. Their operation is really solid now, with everything working like a well oiled machine. Lupita's food continues to be the best Mexican food that I've ever had in my life, in the US or in many places in Mexico. It is cooked with creativity and care and served with pride. The only danger is eating too much (or maybe the strong sun makes one's pants shrink). Greg remains a genial, knowledgeable host who takes care of everything. We've now fished multiple days with both of the senior guides Francisco and Benito (who are partners with Greg and Lupita) and several "ayudantes"
and can say for certain that any combination is terrific. The guides have many years of experience and know their varied waters intimately. Most importantly, they consistently put us on fish, no matter what the weather or wind conditions. We caught tarpon in the green rooms and bonefish evrywhere--and had shots at several permit and LOTS of snook (which inexplicalbly would not eat our flies). The variety is astounding and the pressure is extremely light. All this and the experience is a bargain. I've never had a better trip!
