If you are looking for some exciting deep-sea fishing, Playa del Carmen, in the heart of the Mayan Riviera, is the perfect choice.
After all, this is the Caribbean and many of the world's most sought-after species of fish swim in the waters off the coast of Playa del Carmen. At La Tortuga Hotel & Spa we'll be glad to help you arrange your fishing experience before you arrive in Playa del Carmen.

Sailfish and marlins are plentiful off the coast year-round.
However, it is advisable to book a boat before you arrive, especially during peak season.

The waters outside Playa del Carmen are also home to some of the best-tasting fish in the oceans of the world, and whatever you catch, we will be happy to prepare it exactly as you like it for dinner at La Tortuga Hotel & Spa's restaurant El Bistró.
