My wife and I spent 6 nights and 5 days at the lodge.The enitre staff, from Ed down, was fantastic. They were very friendly and welcoming. We chose to stay at El Pescador for their ability to do more than just fly fish. Their insight and willingness to book adventure trips for us made it easy and enjoyable. We were... More

Having been to Belize on prior solo fishing trips I approached this holiday with trepidation (my wife is significantly handicapped - limited walking with a cane and can only use one arm - she also can't speak). There was no need to be worried. The El Pescador staff put both of us at ease. Everyone went out of their way... More

I just returned from a week of saltwater fly fishing at El Pescador in San Pedro, Belize. It was a great experience. The rooms are clean and comfortable, the food is fantastic, and all of the staff members work hard to make the stay a great and memorable experience. The fishing guides work very hard to help the customer catch... More

There were seven of us and we all thoroughly enjoyed it. The staff were amazing. They were friendly and always helpful. After a day of fishing, one of our group brought a tuna in and the chef cooked it. It was cooked to perfection. The food there was superb. We had a wonderful time and plan on returning soon.

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
