Guanaja, a small island 30 miles east of Roatan, is the home of exceptional saltwater flats and healthy fisheries. Mango Creek Lodge is proud to offer its guests the opportunity of fishing this unique island.
Guanaja was at one time home to two successful fly-fishing lodges. Unfortunately, both were lost in Hurricane Mitch in 1998. Since then, the plentiful flats surrounding this steep, mountainous island have been relatively untouched. Mango Creek Lodge’s past Guanaja excursions have been quite successful, and some of our largest bonefish have been caught in these waters.
The trip to Guanaja involves crossing 10 miles of open ocean, and poor sea and weather conditions can make the journey impossible. Because of this, the availability of Guanaja excursions depends on weather and safety conditions. Arrangements for a Guanaja trip, if feasible, can be made after your arrival at Mango Creek Lodge.
Guanaja excursions are not included in Mango Creek Lodge’s package rates.. Additional costs apply, as detailed below.
