We have a last minute space on a trip to Cayo Largo in Cuba in 20 – 27 November 2021 hosted by Andy Smith. With Cuba finally opening its borders on the 15 November this will be the first trip in to Cayo Largo for nearly two years, so we are incredibly excited to see how good the fishing is going to be after a complete lack of angling pressure.

Cayo Largo remains one of the best spots in the Caribbean for a grand slam with high concentration of permit in amongst its series of cays, mangrove lagoons and flats that run for some 50 kilometres. The flats tend to be white sand interspersed with turtle grass ideal for those who want to wade. Around the cays are mangroves and the wading can be a little trickier, so fishing is primarily done from the boats. Most days you will have the option of either fishing from the skiff or wading. Through the flats and cays you find deeper channels that provide perfect areas for tarpon to feed on the bountiful shoals of sardines.
