Fishing opportunities are splendid in Cancun, and fishermen can find great angling sites year-round. Nichupte Lagoon and Isla Blanca offer a nice variety of fishing—flats, mangroves, and lagoon channels. Tarpon and snook are available most of the year, while permit and bonefish are abundant in the spring and summer months. If you are looking for a special experience, visit Ascension Bay, located about 50 km from Cancun, often listed among top world's fly fishing destinations. Endless crystal clear flats are abundant with bonefish, permit, tarpon, snook and jacks or barracuda. Those who prefer certain species of fish should check for the season first. But generally, the best season is spring and summer.
