We had an awesome visit to Belize. The BRL staff picked us up at the airport and took us to the Lodge where we were able to enjoy a beverage and beautiful scenery. We then stayed on the Long Caye Outpost, which was simply beautiful. Great food, and great fishing. We stayed an entire week with guided fishing each day.... More

I have been to the Belize River Lodge multiple times and have found the fishing in the area to be consistently the best - if you like variety. There are few Caribbean destinations where you can leave your house in the US in the early morning and be landing a tarpon by noon but this Lodge allows you to do... More

I am a fly fisherman so upfront, that is my bias. This was my fifth trip to Belize in two years and up to this point I had absolutely loved it, hence my frequent returns. I had been to ambergris caye three times and turneffe atoll once. I'll try and keep it short- Rooms - very basic, no bells, no... More

Do your plans require you to stay one night in Belize City, either coming to or leaving your vacation resort and you are a bit concerned about your safety in the City. Belize River Lodge is just what you are looking for. True it's remote, not in the city, but ONLY 5 minutes from the international airport. It's a good... More

BRL is an old world charm fishing lodge. The accommodations are better than in any place I have gone to go fishing. The food is superb and is served family style in the very comfortable lounge. After a day on the flats or the river, guests unwind with a drink and fishing stories. The hosts always join for dinner and... More

The rooms are air conditioned, well-appointed, and are full of history. The cuisine is first rate. Owners MIke, Marguerite, and Misha keep a flawless, seamless, fishing program. Common seating room to talk with other traveling anglers.

Belize R. Lodge is well run, clean place with good food, nice staff, 5 minutes from airport. Purpose of the trip was to fly fish for big tarpon. My guide was excellent and the boats were good for the situation. As with all destination fishing you have to be lucky with the weather and I was not. Blowing 20 every... More

I visited BRL a while back but the actual dates are not covered in the TA system. Belize River Lodge is an institution in the Belizean fishing and eco-tourism realm. Professionally operated by Mike Heusner and Marguerite Miles for many years, it sits on the pleasant banks of the Belive River, the lodge's grounds manicured and crammed with colorful flowers...
