Zapata National Park is known for its diverse ecosystem and fishery offering clients the fishing destination of a lifetime. Anglers will fish the three principal areas: the salt flats and bocas at Las Salinas, the Rio Hatiguanico (Cuba’s Amazon River), and San Lazaro.
Many experts say that the flats of Cuba are some of the very best anywhere for bonefish, permit and tarpon. If you’re looking for a trip dedicated to fly-fishing, choose Fish Zapata!

The fishery is an amazing year-round habitat. The Rio Hatiguanico is a superior juvenile tarpon fishery with the average tarpon weighing between 5-25 pounds while 60 to 80 pound tarpon are not uncommon. There is also a healthy snook and cubera snapper population throughout the Rio. Guests will fish the mangroves as well as the bays and tributaries for rolling fish. Las Salinas de Brito and San Lazaro provide miles of flats interspersed with lagoons and channels teaming with bonefish and permit. These sections prove to be real feeding hot spots day in and day out year-round. Bonefish weighing 5-7 lb. are common. The wading at San Lazaro is either hard packed sand or coral rock and it is possible to wade the entire day for bonefish, permit and tarpon.

The area is also known for its exceptional Cuban fly fishing guides. The guides have grown up in the area and on these waters. They know the comings and goings of the fish, the tides, and the weather and can spot fish from astounding distances. All guides have been trained by Master Guide Felipe Rodriguez. All fishing in Zapata is one angler/one guide per boat.

A new section of the Playa Larga Hotel has been dedicated strictly for our 2016 Enridan anglers. The Enridan Lodge has a private entrance with 24 hour security and a new Angler’s Lounge serving cocktails and food. The maximum group size is 10 anglers ensuring high quality services and personal attention. The rooms are located close to the water and are being updated to include well-appointed amenities such as new furniture, air conditioning, ceiling fans, flat screen television, a separate sitting room and large bathroom. Guests can expect fine, casual dining with local farm-to-table vegetables and fruits as well as locally caught fish, chicken and criollo pork. All meals are served in the spacious, air-conditioned dining room centrally located at the Hotel.
In addition, new poling boats and motorized boats will be added for the 2016 fishing season allowing anglers to fish new, pristine areas outside the current poling area. Anglers will also enjoy the repaired road into the Las Salinas area!
We are all about fly-fishing and you can’t find a friendlier, more dedicated place with better guides for chasing bonefish, tarpon, and permit.
