Itinerary

Day 1 - Arrival
Greeting and guest check is done and a complimentary Margarita, beer, or soft drink is served. You will be introduced to your rooms, guides and lodge. Most try to get a cast or two in along the east shore for a bonefish. Dinner will be served and all special requests should be stated. If beer is required in your fishing lunch box now is the time to ask. We recommend that quality time be spent in lounge area to prep tackle and discuss tactics and fish. Upon arrival Manuel and or designated staff will check each guest in, collect the Mexican VAT Tax and fishing license fees for each individual fisherman. Please note the lodge does not accept Credit or Debit cards and cash is necessary.
Days 2-6 - Full Days of Fishing

Your days begin with early breakfast with approximate time announced the evening before. Then you’re off to the boats with guides. We are not limited by the traditional “8:00 – 4:00” rigid fishing schedule you may be accustomed to at other lodges. Our guides are not required to pull you off good fish to meet a schedule. The only constraint is to be on the beach before sunset in accordance with the laws of the Sian Ka’an.

Your tackle and lunch chest will be transported for you. Be sure to not forget anything needed for a successful day on the water. Depending upon your location and weather conditions, the guides will start heading back to the lodge at about 4:30 PM. After arrival at the lodge, your guide will rinse your rod and reel in fresh water, clean and stretch your fly lines and store safely in the second floor lounge area ready for tomorrow’s outing.

Happy Hour cocktails, lemonade, soft drinks and beers are available and served. Great Mexican traditional appetizers are served after boat arrivals. Join the other anglers and guests at the lodge for a refreshing and cool cocktail and delicious hors d ‘oeuvres. Then of course dinner is served. If you have the will, there is usually a crowd that retires to the bar and dining area for after-dinner drinks, cigars on the rooftop Palappa, and/or plenty of fishing stories. The fly-tying (Liars) table is available to guests that want to twist up some new flies for the next day’s fishing, and there is wireless Internet access at the lodge for those who desire to check in with their family or friends.

Day 7 - Departure day
Await the van or transpiration vehicle. Breakfast as usual and a departure time conducive to flight time. Most try to get a cast or two in along the east shore for a last minute bonefish.

Note: Itinerary is subject to change depending on permit availability, weather, trail and course conditions, travel, health and well-being of the trip participants, and interests of the group.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

Meals

All meals and non-alcoholic beverages are provided and included. A regional chef and his assistants that work exclusively for Casa Chac prepare the food. An average morning consists of local fruit, juice, eggs, pancakes or French toast for breakfast along with some local Mexican traditional breakfast dishes served with a great regional and fresh cup of Mexican coffee. The lunch coolers have sandwiches, fruit, chips, bottled and or purified water and cokes. Beer may be requested the day before but is not included. For the non-fishermen, our Chef prepares a traditional Mexican lunch everyday. Dinner choices range from fresh fish to chicken fajitas and lobster when in season. Soups are one of the cook’s specialties and homemade desserts are also served nightly. All is tasty, healthy and always ample. Bottled and or purified water and ice is served for drinking along with sodas and wine.

Happy Hour is served with fresh ceviche, nachos, quesadillas and other local favorites everyday after fishing arrivals and showers. It is held in any of three areas desired, rooftop Palappa, pool table lounge, fly table or outdoors on the patio which is the most favorite because local guides and Casa Chac guides usually migrate there to tell fish stories! Full bar service is available at all three.

The full service bar is available in the dining room, but feel free to bring your favorite spirit. Alcohol is easily obtained along the road from the airport to Tulum – just mention to your driver you are interested in stopping to make a purchase. There is no charge at the lodge for bottle service and the bar is limited in selection of spirits especially in the non-national ones.

Accommodations

The rooms at Casa Viejo Chac are as good as you’ll find in Punta Allen – clean, comfortable, and air-conditioned. Each has it’s own private bathroom with hot water showers.

Casa Chac offers a Palappa rooftop ocean viewing area for a great place watch the stars or to smoke a cigar. The second floor lounge has a pool table and a table for tying flies. This is the area where tackle and rods are lined up by staff after a fresh water bath is done on all. The Spanish “siesta” with hammocks can be practiced in this area. There is an area for fly casting lessons and priactice just outside the front door and patio furniture for Happy Hour and appetizers. The dining room is actually a restaurant with a full service bar that serves to locals and tourists in the village.

Purified and or bottled water is always available.

Daily room maid and towel service is included.

Available but not included is an on call licensed message therapist.

Also available but not included is laundry services.

All staff is local and family with great smiles and personally managed by Manuel.
