Fishing Near Akumal

Akumal is a  destination that allows both for deep sea, shore, and flats fishing.  Permits are required for deep sea salt water fishing so it is best to work with a charter company who can make those arrangements for you.  Shorefishing and fly fishing can be done permit-free, so it is more popular among those who want to go it alone.  The best flats fishing can be found at Ascension Bay or Bocapaila where bonefish, permit, and tarpon are prevalent.
