El Pescador Lodge, in business for over 40 years, is one of the best-run, most famous fly fishing lodges in all of Central America.

6 Nights/7 Days in a Mexican Villa Paradise

Sleeps 16 • $6,000 Value

The Snow Family has generously donated their Rancho Pedro Paila (Peter Pan Ranch), located 90 miles south of Cancun, about 10 miles south of Tulum. It consists of one large house with 4 bedrooms and two small houses with two bedrooms each, situated right on the Caribbean Sea, nestled amongst palm trees and set upon dunes of whitest sand, and an incomparable beach. A caretaker’s home is located in the rear of the houses. There is a shallow and pristine coral reef that extends all along the coast, approximately 300 meters off shore. But there is more….

The area is unique because it is within the ‘Sian Ka’an Reserve’, a protected area of over one million acres, so there are very few neighbors. While the front doors open onto the beach and the sea, the back of the property abuts a large lagoon, Lake Boca Paila, which is a haven for a multitude of varieties of birds and fish, with mangrove channels extending for miles, Mayan ruins, and lush tropical flora and fauna. Wow, thank you to the Snow Family!
