Welcome to The Xflats

Saltwater Fly Fishing Lodge in Unspoiled Mayan Paradise.
Xcalak, Mexico

The Tierra Maya Lodge and our fly fishing guides have been serving Xcalak and the Yucatan for the past 20 years!

The Xflats at Tierra Maya on the Costa Maya is a small, privately-owned and operated hotel fishing lodge in Mexico’s Yucatan. The Xflats is located just 2 km North of the fishing village of Xcalak and 54 km South of the seaport, Mahahual, the second largest coral reef in the world. Mexico’s Mesoamerican Reef offers the best flats fishing in the Yucatan. Located just beyond our pier, the Reef lures vacationers to its beautiful, rich sea life.

Its warm Caribbean waters, Costa Maya, the reefs, and abundant coral heads, with nearby Chinchorro Banks, attract divers, snorkelers and sightseers. A world-renowned flats, Chetumal Bay, attracts permitted fly fishing, bonefish, barracudas & jacks, while local lagoons are home to tarpon and snook. When visiting, enjoy the breathtaking coastline, featuring ancient forests, where shades of green are backed by the brilliant allure of the Caribbean Sea sky.

Nestled among tropical trees and exotic greenery, The Xflats creates the perfect union of luxury and casual beach front living. Truly, a place where the sand and the sea hold hands.

Snorkeling is experienced from the dock, you may bring your own gear or equipment is available for rental from neighboring XTC Dive Shop. Also, we offer ocean kayaks and bicycles for use at no additional charge. All diving, snorkeling, & sightseeing trips can be arranged by lodge staff in advance or scheduled upon arrival.

This is the second year I've booked with the Tierra Maya to go out with Evaristo for permit. They made all the arrangements flawlessly.

Just back from an all inclusive fly fishing week in Xcalak hosted by the Tierra Maya. Can't say enough good things about how they saw to every single detail to our week.

The professionals at The Xflats Fly Fishing were professional, courteous and very knowledgeable of their fishery and the surrounding area. Evaristo is an excellent permit guide. He got us many shots at fish and we even managed to catch a few! I would recommend The Xflats to anyone traveling to Xcalak.
