70 | The Riviera Maya corridor winds through Mexico's Quintana Roo Province along the Caribbean Sea, ending at Ascension Bay. Myriad mangrove islands within the bay attract snapper, grouper, tarpon and snook to hide among the roots in the shade of the searing sun, but clear flats open up possibilities and opportunity to spy permit tailing, bonefish funneling down a shoreline and snook hanging tight to fallen logs and sunken tree trunks. Vigia Grande provides opportunities to target permit while bonefish schools tend to amass in the Vigia Chica proper. No one spot is more than a 45-minute to an hour run in the big bay, so charter captains can usually pick up and make a move to find more productive grounds if necessary. Pesca Maya Lodge is at the epicenter of Ascension Bay activity, offering proper flycasting equipment, a storied lodge lounge and dining room, and a safe and secure property where you can leave your door open the entire day. Most importantly, the lodge's rooms are a dozen steps to the Caribbean Sea when you need to wet a line even after you are "done" fishing for the day. Special thanks to the amazing staff and guides at Pesca Maya Lodge.
