    Carl, if there is one I couldn't find it when my wife and I went to Tulum last year. Also, I found conflicting advice online--some said you need a licence if you're going to deep-sea or offshore fish, but not if you're just wading a beach or a flat.

    I went out for day with guides from Pesca Maya lodge in Ascension Bay (within the Sian Ka'an Biosphere Reserve), and you do need a special licence to fish within the Reserve (which was provided by the lodge). I booked that trip through Yellow Dog Flyfishing and they confirmed that I didn't need a licence just to fish the beaches outside of the Reserve.

    I fished a few times near the public beaches around Tulum without a licence and no one ever bothered me to ask for one. I asked a couple of locals whether gringos needed fishing licences, and they said no.

    To be on the safe side, might I suggest contacting either Yellow Dog outfitters or The Fly Shop--they do a lot of bookings in Mexico.

    Yeah, I found that site in my searches last year, but I think it's specific to fishing the Baja?

    I gotta say, fishing license information in Mexico is not as straightforward as it could be. On the other hand, I had good luck asking a couple of locals "Pesca con mosca?" and pointing to some water down from the public beach. Smiles and "si, si!" and I was off wading. Didn't catch anything, tho'.
