Posted August 14, 2013 by Kay Walten in Mexico Vacation Tips,Riviera Maya Destinations


Usually the question travelers ask when deciding on a vacation destination is "Where?" but perhaps for the passionate traveler the question should be "Why?"

I was not in a fancy restaurant that served up gourmet meals, but I felt like I was doing what any Scottish local would do on their lunch break. The Riviera Maya has...

Tom Brokow once said, "If fishing is religion, then fly fishing is high church." If you know a fly fisherman or you are a fly fisherman you know these guys (and some gals) are crazy passionate about their anglin'.  Especially those who venture deep into the freshwater and brackish estuaries of the Sian Kaan Bioreserve where therein lies the coveted "Grand Slam" (bonefish, tarpon and permit caught the same day) and "Super Slam" (bonefish, tarpon, permit and snook caught the same day).
