Travel Information

Closest regional airport & transfer

The nearest airport is in Cancun. Punta Allen Fishing Club is around three and a half hours away by road. A journey through unspoiled Latin American countryside with many beautiful sites along the way. A journey taking you back in time too.  


All our transfers are in private vehicles with air conditioning and operated by a professional travel transfer company. A van or mini-bus is normally used for small groups upto 8 persons. Our drivers are professional, trust worthy and take care of our clients. Our drivers are well known to us and have provided us with a very good service for many years.


On the return journey, back to the airport it may be possible (depending on your departure time) to stop for a visit at the Mayan ruin in Tulum or stop for some shopping in Playa del Carmen or Tulum. The additional cost for the stop will be around $30 per hour.

All U.S. and European citizens are required to have a passport which is valid for atleast 6 months after the return date of their trip.

No visa or inoculations are required for U.S. or European citizens. A Mexican departure tax is payable at the airport when leaving Mexico. Some airlines include this as a prepaid part of your ticket. Please check with your travel agent or carrier to verify this.

Travel Baggage Insurance

Baggage insurance is suggested to cover valuable rods and reels. Travel insurance covers your rods and reels while en route (airlines typically insure for loss but not for damage).

We recommend holiday interruption insurance for possible coverage of such events.

During your flight you will be asked to complete a Tourist Card. Upon arrival in Cancun, you will claim your baggage and clear Mexican Customs & Immigrations.  At the first stop, you will have to present your documentation and have your Tourist Card stamped.


You must then fill out a Mexican Customs Declaration Form (available at counters in the terminal) and present it before departing the terminal.



The electrical current and plugs are the same as in the U.S., so our Europeans customers need a converter or adaptor.
