Isla Blanca features a large area of flats, mangrove islands and channels that lie just to the northwest of Cancun and remains remarkably productive despite it's close proximity to a bustling tourist town. Isla Blanca provides an amazingly diverse environment offering fly anglers a variety of species to pursue. We affectionately refer to Isla Blanca as the "sleeper" destination due to the fact that it's relatively unknown, yet very close to downtown Cancun.
The flats and mangrove lagoons of Isla Blanca are home to very good numbers of permit, baby tarpon, snook, barracuda and jacks. Bonefish in this region are few and far between, however, some days they can be found when conditions are optimal. If you happen to find yourself traveling to Cancun for a vacation or wedding, spending a day or two on Isla Blanca is well worth your time and highly advised. Yucatan Fly Fishing Adventures' guides are professional, fly fishing savvy and operate well maintained fly fishing specific 18 foot panga-style skiffs. Day trips at Isla Blanca can also be easily combined with trips to Ascension Bay or elsewhere on the Yucatan.
