Paradise Lodge is aptly named. What was at first hailed as the lodge most consistently productive for tarpon and snook now includes outstanding bonefishing in the most scenic and remote flats of the Mexican Yucatan. Add to this excellent possibilities of hooking up with the most elusive of flats fish; the permit. The new, completely rebuilt Paradise Lodge has re-opened its doors after its complete destruction by Hurricane Dean in August of 2007. It offers wilderness saltwater fishing from complete comfort in luxury accommodations on the Caribbean Coast near the border with Belize.
It looks out over the sea and its part of the second longest barrier reef in the world. It is small catering to only 8 anglers at one time, with 4 rooms to provide space for non-anglers as well as anglers. The whole idea behind the rebuild was to make individual attention the first priority of the lodge and staff. The meals are served taking advantage of the chef's expertise in preparing Mexican and international cuisine. All of the drinks are on the house and the bar is always open.

The lodge at Paradise is completely rebuilt with all new furnishings. Alex de Tomaso is very proud of what he and his crew have accomplished. The main structure is a two-story stucco building facing east and placed a short distance from the shore.
One can observe tropical sun rises from its picture windows looking out across the sandy beach, past the reef and over the Caribbean Sea.
Paradise Lodge's location on the Yucatan Coast is unique, affording access to 3 distinctly different fisheries: 1. Inland Tarpon & Snook Lakes 2. Espiritu Santo Bay 3. Chetumal Bay Few, if any, flats fishing lodges in the world have more to offer the skinny water fishing enthusiasts than Paradise Lodge.
What is most unique about Paradise Lodge and what separates it from other saltwater fly fishing lodges is the inland tarpon and snook lakes. It's these dozen or so ancient lakes, connected to the Caribbean by limestone caverns called "cenotes" , that has drawn tarpon and snook fanatics to this part of the world for the past 15 years.
In our opinion, these shallow lakes offer the most reliable fishing for juvenile size tarpon (5 to 40 pounds) and trophy snook (10 to 20 + pounds) that we know of in the world.
