Mexico's Sian Ka'an and Punta Allen

One bumpy four-hour drive to Punta Allen in a station wagon with worn-out shock absorbers will convince you that nothing in that part of the Yucatan is likely to change for a very long time. Thank goodness.
Joe Richard captures the flavor of the isolated peninsula and the tremendous fishing in Ascension Bay in this piece from Florida Sportsman. “The sun rose higher and hotter, and we sailed across miles of light-speckled shallows. Then the quiet approach, poling in from upwind, and we began to see bonefish—groups mudding, single fish pushing slight wakes, even a small pack of 5- to 7-pounders over clean bottom, very decent fish for these waters.”
