Caribbean or Mexico in fall 2011

Hi there,
IŽm planning a flyfishing trip for 2011. WeŽll be two fishermen unfortunately with a limited budget staying for about one week. Our goal would be to catch Barracudas, Jacks, Tarpon and similar on the fly in shallow waters. Our equipment will be 8-10-12 wt. We plan to get a guide for one day and then try on our own. But there are so many possibilities!

1. Does anyone know a good and cheap location (I guess Mexico is cheaper than Cuba and Dominican Republique?)

2. We would like to rent a boat for the week. Do we have any chance to get one for around 100 USD a day?

Any contacts and recommendations would be highly welcome!

Early fall in the Carribean and Latitude 22 is hurricane season.Once into October a much safer bet but still can be windy and best DIY opportunities are a good 3/4hr drive from Cancun.IT is fun but lumpy and better in a Jeep.

November is one of the best times to fish the tropics. Avoid September and October though. Southern Mexico and northern Belize are good bets. Not much walk up fishing but you could easily get taxied to a flat for the day for less than $100. Google "belize forums" and you can join a forum and get all the info you want and even find out about getting rides to the flats. Take a look at xcalak and the backside lagoons of ambergris Caye(I just came back and you could easily fish them on foot).
