Located on the northwestern side of the Yucatan Peninsula, Campeche has established a reputation as “the” Caribbean hotspot for juvenile tarpon.
Campeche offers some of the finest and most consistent fishing for baby tarpon that we have found anywhere in the world.
The Yucatan Peninsula extends like a thumb into the ocean. The Cancun(east) side of the peninsula is on the Caribbean Ocean with its extensive network of large bays and sandy beaches. Its flats are home to bonefish, permit, snook and tarpon. The Campeche (west) side of the peninsula is on the Gulf of Mexico with extensive mangrove forests, creeks and small lakes. The predominant gamefish here is the baby tarpon. A species of small snook is present.
