Pristine flats, keys and channels within a natural reserve on a remote peninsula provide some of the best tarpon fishing on the planet.
On the far western tip of the Caribbean island of Cuba is the Guanahacabibes Peninsula and the home of El Faro Lodge. Preserved for 40 years, this national park and biosphere reserve is where anglers will find 200 miles of flats, beaches, channels, mangroves, coral reef, and bluewater — all coming together for what is a fly fishing and conventional fishing paradise. Tarpon, bonefish, permit, snook, triggerfish, jacks, and a wide range of bluewater species are all available in waters that have been largely untouched and remain uniquely wild.
