Casa Blanca is an angler’s paradise. Situated on the northern tip of Punta Pájaros with immediate access to the prime fishing areas of Ascension Bay, our guests spend less time travelling to the fish. The lodge is built right on the water, overlooking a beautiful flat visited daily by bonefish schools, permit and tarpon. Some of the best fishing takes place right off the lighted pier after dark.
Fast becoming a spot on every saltwater anglers bucket list, Ascension Bay is a place where all of the stars align. Possibly the best location in the world to accomplish a grand slam, the bay is teeming with all of the flats species year-round. From rivers, lagoons and classic sand flats, there are endless possibilities to wade or fish from the boat.
Situated one hundred miles to the south of Cancun and covering over eight- hundred square miles, Ascension Bay sticks out on the map. Numerous perfect bonefish flats dot the bay, the permit water is endless, and the creek and river inlets in the back of the bay can keep a snook and tarpon fisherman busy for days. Runs from the lodge to the fishing can be anywhere from five minutes to over an hour.
Espiritu Santo Bay lies off the southern View more...tip of Punta Pájaros. Often referred to as the last frontier of Yucatan flats fishing, Espiritu Santo is difficult to reach from anywhere other than Playa Blanca Lodge. At approximately half the width of Ascension Bay, Espiritu Santo is a smaller but equally impressive fishery. Multiple river systems pour into the bay over limestone bottoms, depositing an area of rich sediment that bonefish and permit are often found tailing in. The mangroves that line these rivers provide perfect habitat for tarpon and snook and an ideal situation for a super grand slam. The bay itself is edged by vast sand flats, perfect for wading, while the deeper water can be a great place to find cruising permit schools. Due to the remoteness of Espiritu Santo Bay, fishing pressure remains light. A local lobster boat or one of your lodge mates is usually the only traffic you will see while out on the water. Runs to the fishing can be anywhere from fifteen minutes to an hour.
The expansive mangrove estuary of Ascension Bay known as the Santa Rosa Lagoon lies due west of Punta Pájaros. A massive system of linked small and medium lagoons, Santa Rosa is an important area to the ecosystem, harboring and nurturing juvenile fish and other sea life. Fishing is endless in this beautiful backcountry. An impressive number of juvenile tarpon, some up to fifty pounds, call Santa Rosa home, as do the area’s larger bonefish specimens, barracuda and snook. Santa Rosa offers excellent protection from the wind and is a great option for those tougher days on the flats. Santa Rosa is also a wonderful place for wildlife viewing, home to amazing birds like the boat-billed heron, roseate spoonbill, reddish egret, tiger heron, and pygmy kingfisher.
All rooms are spacious and well appointed with remarkable ocean views, air conditioning, tile floors and mahogany shutters. Casa Blanca has ten seaside rooms and can accommodate twenty-two people comfortably.
In the open-air main lodge you will find comfortable lounging chairs and a fully stocked bar with accommodating bartender. After a long day on the flats it’s nice to recount your adventures to fellow anglers while sipping an ice-cold beverage and enjoying the daily selection of “botanas” (snacks) prepared fresh every afternoon. After a shower, make your way to the dining room to enjoy the chef’s daily specialty.
Casa Blanca is remote but not disconnected. The main lodge has wireless Internet for guest use. There is no regular telephone service, but satellite phones are ava View more...ilable for a small fee.
