It had been three years since we were at El Pescador, the flats fishing mecca near San Pedro, in Belize. The staff has always been delightful, and still is. The food was always okay, but now it is much better, with more flavor, better ingredients, new recipes and more variety. The rooms have been enlarged, with chic bathrooms and fresh...

El Pescador is a family friendly fishing lodge. Excellent accommodations, good food and a very friendly staff. The fishing guides were all very knowledgeable and friendly. Everyone caught fish. I recommend this flats fishing lodge for anyone from a beginner fly fisherman to the expert.

Pro guides and a very informative staff made for a wonderful experience. I can't wait to come back for that Tarpin!!! If anything the only...

My wife and I recently returned from a saltwater fly fishing vacation at El Pescador Lodge. The level of service we received from the first moment we arrived until we hopped on the boat back to San Pedro was phenomenal. Every member of the staff was knowledgeable, congenial and always addressed us by name - even remembering our favorite beverages!...

This is a fantastic place for those looking for a fishing adventure but it also works for non-fisherman. We spent a wonderful week at the El Pescador - my son and I had fantastic days fishing and my wife and daughter enjoyed the sun, , the pool at the resort, snorkeling, hidden beach, and driving a golf-cart around town. Everything...

I took my son here. We had great fishing. The staff was great. The food was also very good. I am planning on going back soon. I will most likely take my wife on my next trip to El Pescador. The pools and beach are very nice.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
El Pescador’s beachfront lodge and villas are situated on over 45 private acres with ambiance, specializing in fishing, diving and eco-adventures. We are family-owned and operated with emphasis on creating camaraderie and an authentic Belizean experience. El Pescador is proud of our philosophy to protect and nurture friendship, adventure and the environment. El Pescador has long been known as a world-class fishing destination offering outstanding flats fishing for bonefish, tarpon and permit. El Pescador has been the only resort on Ambergris Caye specializing in saltwater flats fishing since 1974. Since coming under new ownership in 1997, the resort has established itself as an eco-friendly tropical getaway, including a commitment to offset all carbon emissions generated by its guests flying to Belize. Donations are made on behalf of guests to a local Belizean non-profit organization, Green Reef Environmental Educational and Coastal Research Institute, to offset the carbon emissions used to travel to Belize. El Pescador was also among the key organizations to implement the new Law protecting bonefish, tarpon and permit as catch and release species. This is the most all encompassing legislation of its kind worldwide. It is great news for Belizeans, anglers, tourists and conservationists alike. El Pescador is a serene and gracious establishment on the doorstep of the world’s largest living Barrier Reef. El Pescador offers accommodations in guest rooms within its colonial style, mahogany main lodge, as well as in 1, 2, and 3 bedroom luxury beachfront villas. The villas are perfect accommodations for couples seeking romance and privacy, and for families and small groups traveling together. All rooms and villas are beachfront and have unobstructed views of the Caribbean blue waters. In addition to unequaled fishing, this first-rate resort offers all the eco-adventures which take full advantage of Belize’s exotic flora and fauna. Scuba diving, snorkeling, manatee watching, cave-tubing and zip-lining, and Maya archaeological explorations are just a small assortment of the activities available while staying at El Pescador. ... more   less
