Puerto Morelos and the peninsula of Yucatan that is often referred to as

"the privileged location on the natural Mayan Riviera for Sailfish migration"

Puerto Morelos rests between Cancun and Playa del Carmen on the prestigious Mexican "Mayan Riviera ”. Set in luscious jungle and secluded beaches the remote location is an ideal escape. Puerto Morelos is generally tropical and warm. The average temperature is 80 degrees. Dressing is casual, even in the finest restaurants.

 

The fishing in this region caters especially to sport fishermen with trophy-size sailfish, marlin, dorado, and tuna. It could set a new standard for Marlin and Sailfish fishing, with new information about the coastline. We have spent many years exploring these new Marlin and Sailfish waters, with more still waiting to be explored. If you are looking for a real fishing adventure, English speaking captains, fish that have rarely seen a fly or lure, try the newest and most exciting in the Mexican Caribbean.

 

The area has been noted by Fishermen as "one of the most beautiful deserted beaches in the world." Visitors may also enjoy relaxing on the beach, swimming, water sports and the nightlife of the Mexican Caribbean.

FISHING OVERVIEW

The Mayan Riviera reputation is prominent in the world of deep-sea fishing, and is known as “One of The Sailfish Hot Spots of the World” among many deep-sea fishing enthusiasts. These are the fishing villages at the coastline of the peninsula of Yucatan: Puerto Morelos, Playa del Carmen, Puerto Aventuras, Akumal and Tulum. It is in these waters off Yucatan where the big game fish love to lurk. Fresh runs of blue, white Marlin, Sailfish, Dorado, Wahoo, Barracuda, and yellowfin Tuna tempt anglers all year around. No matter what time of the season you decide to fish the Mayan Riviera, it will be a trip you will not forget for a long, long time!

There's nothing on earth like sinking the barb into a really World Class Sailfish, and Puerto Morelos is just the place to experience explosive fishing! When was the last time you caught a Sailfish or a Marlin? Fishing Puerto Morelos is the chance of a lifetime to get that wall-hanger.
