No tits for payment, cause I'm sure you've already seen what I'd put up.
Going next month, would like a guide for a day or two for my wife, so day guide recommendations welcome also.
No lodges.
Joints to stay clear of also welcome.
Specifically looking at Ascension Bay.
Used to be in the loop, but not anymore.
THX in advance.

TX,

I know you said no lodges, but Pesca Maya does day trips too without having to stay there.

I did a day trip with Pesca Maya out of Playa del Carmen. Saw lots of bonefish at that time of year but can't rememebr when it was. Lol
Long drive from Playa.

I have done Pesca Maya also, they were really great, it has been a while.
Ascension Bay is an amazing experience. I would go with someone who is well established, the last time we were in Mexico we nearly got mixed up in some really weird stuff, there are a lot of things out of control there.

Yeah, we were a little hesitant about Mexico w/ all the poisoned alcohol going around right now, but I think it's pretty safe over there.

Talk to the short man who owns this site. He seems to know his way around down there. I recall something about good fishing in the lagoon by kayak.

I never could figure out how they charge that much, when the conventional guys go out further on bigger boats for less $$$.

A 5 hour drive from Cancun. Super laid back, not developed with condos and great snorkeling.... some DIY fishing in Chetumal Bay, good, relatively cheap guided trips.

I would say some Drakians have been to Pesca Maya.

I just went for the day, it was well worth the 6 bills. Picked us up at the hotel in Playa and bought me back.
2 guides to the boat.
Non stop bonie action all day long, they were small tho, Frampton got some shots at permit no love tho.
Not sure where you are staying but if you can get to Cozumel you should consider Bonefishcozumel.
I took the ferry from playa and Nacho picked me up at the dock.
I went out with Alberto and had a great day, bigger bonefish , saw some permit. 1st trigger fish on fly
