Who we are

Aviles Brothers is a family owned business with three generations of experience.

They not only have been arranging hunts but they themselves love hunting and fishing. It all started when they were just kids and their father, C. Roberto Avilés, took them out hunting deer, jaguar, ducks and doves. Since then they developed a love for the sport and a knowledge of the field and game.

About four decades ago. Roberto and Carlos Avilés joined forces to provide their friends with hunting expeditions, later joined by Gilberto in the fishing department. Within years they became well known thru out the whole state and especially in the city of Mazatlán.  Originally there were duck, dove, quail, goose and jaguar expeditions, but regulations and conservational laws have prohibited jaguar hunts.

Roberto Avilés, the  older  brother and owner is in charge of management, promotion, permits   and  business  operations.  He  also  owns  an   air  charter business which provides air  transportation  to  government  officers,  locals  and tourists to just about everywhere within México.

Gilberto Avilés, the middle brother handles everything   related to fishing;  from arranging the boat to getting the fishing permits and picking up customers at the hotel.

Carlos Avilés, the youngest brother, has been hunting his whole life and acts as a professional guide.

Roberto Aviles Jr., son of Roberto is now taking part in the operation, so future generations will still enjoy hunting with us.

Aviles Brothers is a founding member of the Sinaloa State Association of Hunting Outfitters and Guides, which was the  first  association  of this type in México.

They are also members of the Mexican Shooting Federation.


We are based in the city of Mazatlán, in the state of Sinaloa, México also called
“The Golden Coast of the Mexican Pacific”.

Each year Sinaloa becomes the shelter of millions of birds that fly thousands of miles to meet in this beautiful landscape and mate. Over 5 million ducks, migratory and resident, meet here.

Mazatlán also know as a resort city with warm people, excellent hotels and restaurants, beautiful weather, history, art, aquariums, water parks and exceptional deep sea and bass fishing along with beautiful and exotic landscapes enhanced by extraordinary sunsets.

This makes MAZATLAN an excellent destination not only for the avid hunter and fishermen, but for the whole family.  Mazatlán is  at  23  degrees  15 minutes  31  seconds North  by  106  degrees  26  minutes  43  seconds  West, just one  degree  north  of  the  latitude of Kauai. It is almost exactly even with the tip of the Baja Peninsula, which is the easy way to find it.
