My oldest son and I went to El Pescador with modest expectations and we were overwhelmed by the wonderful and gracious staff. From the minute we arrived we were made to feel welcomed and appreciated. Our fishing experience also exceeded expectations. Although we did not get a grand slam we each caught our first Permit on the fly and had... More

My husband and I stayed at El Pescador July 5-12, 2015. My husband is an avid angler; me - not so much, but El Pescador Resort was a perfect fit for both of us. The staff is truly remarkable here. From the office to the chefs to the bartenders, kitchen servers and housekeeping workers, each and every one went out... More

Our family takes as least 2 trips a year to the Caribbean and this time my wife chose to stay 7 days at El Pescador. After it had been booked I asked her why she had chosen a fly fishing resort (we fish all the time, but have never picked up a fly rod in my life). Her response was... More

Amazing family run, family friendly fishing resort (and many other activities for non-fishers)! Gorgeous location. Terrific Fishing guides. Unbelievable family dinners; giving you the opportunity to meet, dine and share your day's fish tales with other anglers from all aroung the world. Accommodations just spectacular. If you can get a waterfront villa and you have a large group, try to... More

El Pescador Lodge is one of the most outstanding places I've ever been. The staff greats each member of the family by name and their friendliness and attention to detail is unsurpassed. The food is outstanding and the fishing incredible. We spent two days snorkeling, sailing, visiting Mayan sites and cave tubing and the staff at El Pescador arranged every... More

Our graduation trip to El Pescador surpassed all of our expectations. Belize is a spectacular destination with the most incredible coastline and the citizens are happy and very proud of their natural resources. The staff at El Pescador refer to each other as family and immediately upon arrival make you feel like a member of their family as well. The... More

We stayed at El Pescador primarily for fishing and we loved it. The staff has activities that help you get everything ready for your fishing adventure like fly casting clinic and fishing orientation, you are given a form to fill out for lunches on the boat which will be prepackaged for you. We also did a meal option where all... More

There are those wonderful few times in life that everything comes together to make an incredible experience. My visit to El Pescador Lodge in Belize was one such experience. First , the staff from the moment we arrived until we left six days later was extraordinary. Nothing was left undone or unsaid by this professional group. The fishing guides were... More
