Isla Blanca is a peninsula just 30 minutes north of Cancun that separates the Caribbean Sea from the Laguna Chachmochuch. The Isla Blanca area is an exciting fishery and an entire ecosystem complete with fish, turtles and native bird species. Whether it be Bonefish or Permit on the shallow water flats or Tarpon and Snook in the mangrove-lined shores and canals, Isla Blanca has it all. If you are looking for a Grand Slam (Bonefish, Permit, and Tarpon), Isla Blanca is the place to go.
