If you are interested in using the FlyFishMex shuttle service, please send your airline itinerary and number of guests to email@example.com to reserve space.
There is a new system at the San Jose del Cabo airport to reduce curbside crowding and increase flow of track at the shuttle bus/van meeting area outside of baggage claim. If you've visited us in the past, you likely witnessed the relative free-for-all craziness of newly arrived "got a cold margarita on my mind" vacationers scurrying around the crowd to locate their shuttle drivers. Thankfully, those times are now behind us! Now the process is organized so that drivers are assigned numbered canopies where their guests can go to meet them. Guests taking our shuttle should exit the baggage claim and meet the driver at canopy #10.
Alternatively, if you arrive to Baja via the, much smaller and less congested, La Paz airport simply exit baggage claim and look for your driver.
If you have a trip planned with us and need to arrange transportation between the airport and Bahia De Los Suenos, please email us to coordinate and schedule shuttle times. Our van comfortably accommodates up to 8 passengers with luggage.

The key to any successful destination fly fishing trip is knowing what you need to bring and making sure you pack it into your luggage. We came up with a list of 5 essential things to pack that will make your trip more enjoyable and rewarding.
#1 Passport and Fishing License
Be sure that your passport is valid for the dates of your trip and that you have copies (digital or print) of all other necessary travel documents and buy, and print, your Mexico fishing license online prior to your trip. Purchase Fishing License Here! Note: the website charges pesos, not US dollars.
For a full week of fishing bring a minimum of 4 dozen flies in a variety of sizes and colors.
• Sardinas - 24-30 flies in size 2/0-4/0 hooks and 3"-6" long in tan/white, grey/white, and olive/white

Bring 25 yard spools each of fluorocarbon in 20#, 30#, and 40#. We are fans of Seaguar line but any quality brand will do.
#4 Rod, Reel, and Line Outfits
We recommend that you bring at least three rod and reel outfits to tackle the various species we encounter in Baja. Back-up rods and spare reel spools for different lines are recommended. Here are our outfit recommendations.
• A 9 wt. with floating and clear intermediate sink tip lines and 150 yards of 60# backing for small roosters, jacks, and pompano.
