Our business, Tarpon Town Anglers is based in the city of Campeche which is in the west of the Yucatan, facing the gulf of Mexico. To make a reference, 5 hours from Cancun across the peninsula but going westwards. The city is a fully charm colonial town with authentic traditions. Why going remote if you can have all amenities and great fishing in the same place?
Campeche Airport CPE is served from Mexico City with Aeromexico Airlines and partenrs. Merida Airport MID and Ciudad del Carmen CME are served by United Airlines thru Houston IAH . There is an option to pick you up at Cancun Airport however, a surcharge for private shuttle may apply and driving time is five (5) hours.
We fish year round as fish are resident. Winter and Spring bring more samples of larger Juveniles in decent size schools to the game. The babies are happy as far as weather cooperates and coldfronts are not blowing. Summer and Fall are the steadiest as the rainfall flushes the mangrove with nutrients into the Gulf, generating more happy brackish water. It is the hurricane season. Do not worry too much. We don´t get as many as the caribbean waters.
As all guests are staying within the city, either downtown or a few steps out, there are many activities and sightseeings for non angler companions such as museums, handicraft and supplies market, ecotours, birdwatching, half day trip and full day expedition to mayan ruins, beach days at private waters, new 9 hole gulf course and much more.

Edward E. > Having fished all over the world, I have a “keen understanding of quality”, or lack thereof ! Your operation is like a “well oil machine”, with all the parts working wonderfully! Juan is the best guide I ever had.
Ralph B. As usual the guides were fantastic and Fernando was really patient with my casting and flubs. The only thing I would have liked better was time to have a beer with the guides at the end of the last day. You have improved the overall quality of operation and it makes it a pleasure to fish with you.
I want to thank you for a fine trip to Campeche. It was a great time and we are back at home now. > I go because I like the total experience, where you are, who you are with, what are the surroundings, seeing new things, getting ready, tying the flies, and Your approach to hosting a trip embodies all those things. Thank you for an enjoyable trip.
Raul, I wanted to let you know that we had a great time today. Juan was awesome to work with. He put us right onto fish and we had a great time. He gave us some great pointers for fishing. He was a very good and patient teacher. The sandwiches he brought for lunch were really good. If I ever get the chance I will definitly be coming back to Campeche to fish some more. The city was awesome, and overall my trip was excellent. Your suggestion of hotels was also great. They were very kind and attentive, and helped us out as much as possible. Thanks again for a great experience
I had a great time fly fishing for small tarpon at Campeche. Caught my first tarpon ever! Very exciting fishing. Everything went smoothly—things were well-organized and the guide was very helpful. I learned a lot from him about tarpon fishing. The hotel was great and that area of Campeche was beautiful---it was wonderful area for my wife and I to explore. I’m definitely ready to give it another try!
For those new to this place, Campeche is an “off the radar” part of Mexico. It’s too small, remote and no beaches for much tourism - though there are some Mayan ruins nearby. An old colonial oceanside town, you feel safe and far away from today’s travel hotspots. In large numbers, baby tarpon live here in/near the mangroves which border many miles of coastline. The babies are 5-40 lbs. When they grow to adult size…yikes
My first time fishing for Baby Tarpon last year and It was a great deal of fun. Lots of fish and a great guide (Fernando), limited English but he sure knew how to put us into fish. Accommodations were good, clean and friendly, and across the road from the boats. Raul was a great host during our stay. Enjoyed it so much we are coming back in 2015
Thanks for a wonderful time fishing and visiting in Campeche, both Joe and I enjoyed ourselves and have already been highly recommending Tarpon Town as a first class destination for juvenile Tarpon.
I have been fishing with Tarpon Town Anglers since 2012. Raul's attention to detail and customer service is one of the best that there is in the sport fishing industry. Guides are very good at helping anglers spot tarpon and get them set up for the best cast. Rooms are very clean with a great staff of helpful people and next to the marina. Campeche is a healthy , sharp clean and extremely safe city at any time of the day.
