Cozumel Flats Fishing

Fly fishing or spin casting the lagoons

and flats

About 10 miles north of Cozumel, lies the 3 most beautiful lagoons on the island, famously known as Montecristo, Paso Balem and Rio de la Plata. These lagoons are a combination of inlets, coves, mangroves, sandy flats, coral flats, grassy flats, mud flats and shallow crystal clear waters. These waters make the perfect habitat for teeming bonefish, large permit, snook and baby tarpon, along with many other lagoon fish dwellers. The fishing on these lagoons and flats is good all year round, due to the fact that the fish don't migrate.  Also, during the months of March through December, you can find great permit fishing weighing sometimes in excess of 25 pounds.


Fishing Information
Your fishing trip targets bonefish in the flats, but you will also have the chance to catch permit, snook and tarpon, along with ladyfish, mangrove snapper, jack, triggerfish, small shark and barracuda in a single fishing day.

We operate 3 flats boats from 23' to 25' powered with 60 H.P. Yamaha motors, with the latest safety equipment.

This fishing is done mainly while wading. It is important to bring a pair of either flats wading boots, diving boots, tennis shoes, hard sole water socks or strapped sandals. We also recommend a pair of good polarized sun glasses, a convenient hat, plenty of sun block lotion (SPF 50), bug spray, comfortable light clothing and please, don't forget your camera.
