We visited Brenda& Lee’s Iguana de los Mangos in October 2011 and a year and a half later are still taking about it! - one of the most unique and exciting vacations, including my initiation into big game fishing with eating a raw dorado liver as \"part of the tradition\" (?!) ;)
Also, favorable rates, great activities, always count on the best weather.
It will take you about an hour or so to get there from Los Cabos airport. Most of the road is good, though some construction sections are to be endured, as well as bad signalisation. But once you’re at your B&B your hosts will take really good care of you. The accommodations are exceptional - beautiful and elegant hacienda type décor, the visitors’ quarters are on a separate floor, with huge outdoor patio including open kitchen and a BBQ set overlooking the tennis court… Then private fly-steps leading to the roof top lookout where you can see the ocean and all vicinity - this is where you enjoy sipping your Mojito on the hammock and admiring the romantic sunset and relaxing after a day full of emotions. The innkeepers’ hospitality is outstanding, including daily freshly-baked muffins, cakes or sweet breads served with locally grown fruits and organic juice, for breakfast or as afternoon snacks. Generously shared information about sports, shopping, clubbing, dining… My advice though, for the better ever value, do not hesitate for the little extras your hosts are offering for a much lesser price than comparable from around: try the surf fishing on the beach, and I would say the big-game deep sea fishing “the Mexican way” from the nearby fisherman’s beach is a must – it gives you the chance to create real great fisherman stories to brag about for a long time! There is no pier so the boats are hand-launched over the surf and in between hundreds of pelicans, and this is almost a bungee jumping-like feeling in your stomach, loads of fun! Be prepared for catching several big-game dorados and then get back on the beach by managing the boat to get riding a huge surfing wave…, trust me the experience is unique and memorable~
And don’t forget to opt for the mountain hiking trip where you can buy some unique artisanal pottery.
I will definitely recommend to all my friends and anyone tired of the all-inclusive uneventful resort experiences.

Hold on tight!

We have been fishing with Lee and Jose 7 times or so and have caught fish every time. Everything from a 200lb Blue Marlin to a cooler full of Yellow Tails and Bonito. In fact, that's my brother with a nice Yellow Tail in the picture above.
Lee and Jose are very safe and know how to guide a boat. I agree with the review above, Lee has a terrific life experience and the South African accent makes for a nice change. Most of all, he has a great instinct of when to pick up the chatter or let you enjoy the surroundings.
The launch and landing from Point Lobo is a real treat and unlike any boat launch or landing I have been on. However, the sushi back at the house is what I look forward to at the end of the trip. I will continue to fish with Lee every trip to Todos Santos.

Panga Fishing Heaven!

We Have "gone out" with Lee on three different occasions, he always guides us to where the fish are, we have always returned with a cooler full. Lee seems to have a sense of where to look, constantly scanning the horizon for the school we want. We have caught Ciera, Yellow Fin, Bonito, Dorado and Rooster Fish, as well as seeing huge schools of Dolphin and dozens of Gray Whales.
Besides the results, what I like about fishing with Lee is the history, geography and fish lore that he gives you. It's more than fishing it's the big picture. It's...Magic...with an English accent. Thanks Lee. See you next time.
