Spent 5 nights at Tarpon Caye Lodge, with fishing every day. I would highly recommend it, and we will return. The cabins over the water are really unique, unless you are in Tahiti! The warm breeze and sounds of the Caribbean will lull you to sleep. Everything is clean and fresh. In the morning, wake up to rich coffee, rolls... More

What a wonderful place to spend a week. Very simple and yet done very well. I'll start with the food... outstanding!

Charles Leslie Sr. was an incredible guide. I cannot speak more highly of him. When it comes to Fly Fishing and going after Permit, Tarpon and bones he is amazing! He knows this area like the back of his hand. If you stay out at the lodge the fishing is literally within seconds of your bungalow. The island (caye) has... More
