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. 

If you like the idea of spending some time with a rod in your hand, there are several charter fishing operators that can help make it happen.
