This was our first trip to Punta Allen and our first guided fishing trip. We drove ourselves into town from Tulum. The is rough, but definitely not the worst road. We forgot Greg's directions and ended up having to ask the local police to help us find Greg & Lupita. Apparently Greg was getting worried about us and he was driving aorund town looking for us - anyway we all found each other. When we got to the resort Lupita had margaritas (mmmm good!) and a wonderful dinner of homemade tamales waiting for us. The are very clean and everything needed for comfort - air conditioning, hot water, shower, towels, 2 queen beds, and lots of space to organize all of your trappings. Every morning at 6 am Greg's excellent coffee was delivered to our door. At 7 am it's time for breakfast and at 8 am it's off to go fishing or site seeing or both with Antonio & Francisco. We caught jacks, bonefish, snapper and barracudas. We saw Mayan ruins, osprey, flamingos, storks, crocodiles, manatees & dolphins - all in two days! We love this place and can't wait to come back.
