My wife and I had a great first visit and are presently scheduling two return visits in the next 12 months. The food, accomodations, and services are first-rate, as are the fishing and non-fishing excursion opportunities. As a novice saltwater fly angler I was extremely pleased with the help I received and success I had when fishing with Capt. Cinoeh... More

Our first trip to Belize in February 2015 as a small group with a shared passion for fishing and 'sun and fun' and El Pescador Was fantastic! The fish were a little skittish due to some recent bad weather but the the guides were fantastic for all levels of anglers. The resort was tropical, friendly, and an amazing staff truly... More

We stayed here based on the fly fishing reviews. It was a lovely resort with all the amenities you would want in an ocean front resort- pools, views, and a bar. We stayed on the all inclusive plan and enjoyed all meals. The evening meals shared with the other guests were delicious. I took full advantage of all the rum... More

First time to Belize. The resort was fantastic. I would not hesitate to recommend El Pescador to any of my fishing friends. Excellent food, very friendly atmosphere and courteous staff. Expectations were exceeded. The fish only cooperated some days, so we only caught bonefish. When I go back to try for the grand slam, I'll be sure to book there... More

I've been saltwater fishing for quite some time, I usually go on one or two trips a year. This year a group of us went for a week of fishing at El Pescador. The fishing was fantastic, but the resort and staff made the trip. Whether you want to fish or just hang out and vacation at a small quiet... More

I never write reviews, but had to for El Pescador. My wife and I chose to do a non-traditional honeymoon, not stay at a franchise type resort, and wanted to stay somewhere off the beaten path and chose El Pescador. All i can say is we couldn't be happier with our decision. It is a fishing lodge by trait so... More

As a fishing destination you could be disappointed, but it would be hard to beat for a resort in Belize that has access to so many other activities. I would definitely return because the accommodations, staff and food are terrific. The all inclusive package was a good value as well. I just wouldn't consider it a premier fishing location which...

I am booking my 3rd visit to E. P. The outstanding staff is unrivaled by anything I have seen in my travels on 3 contents. Food & surrounding are first class and ownership does not stint in re investment and upkeep. Tops for me though is the fishing program, the guides and manager are the best i've seen from Kamchatka...

Spent 2 weeks at El Pescador. LOVED IT!!! This place deserves all of the great reviews and awards it has received. We spend a 3 days of fishing, a day of snorkeling, some stand-up paddle boarding, and many days doing a whole lot of nothing drinking, reading and lounging by the pool, and lying in a hammock.
