My wife and I were greeted at the San Pedro airport by a member of the El Pescador staff who transferred our bags to a boat at a nearby dock. After providing us with a couple "cold ones", he took us on a 10 minute boat ride up the coast to the lodge where other staff members took our bags to our room. We booked this trip through Orvis so I knew our accomodations would be great and we weren't disappointed. The private villa we stayed in was huge! It had a large balcony that overlooked one of 3 pools and the beach. The villa had a huge kitchen and living room area which was nice to mix cocktails and lounge around in after a long day on the flats fishing. That evening Steve, the manager, who happened to be a former resident of Pittsburgh, explained the fishing itinerary as well as dinnig and other information. Dinner is served family style which is nice as long as the guests you end up sitting with have similar interests. We eneded up getting stuck with a group the first evening that were there on vacation to scuba and unfortunately lost our interests. The dinner meals were ok but on 2 of the 3 nights we stayed they had Mexican buffet which isn't our favorite. The beef fillets the last night were more to our liking. Breakfast at El Pescador is wonderful. The kitchen staff are very accomodating and will fix you a great breakfast. The first day I fished alone so I could see whether my wife, who has only fly fished once before, would get along. My guide was Tomas, a long time native and guide of the area. The first day's fishing was great from the standpoint of seeing and getting shots at fish. Tomas provided me with lots of shots at Bonefish, which I managed to land 10 - 12. I also got a few shots at Permit which I blew because of my inaccurate casts. Tomas was teasing me that I casted like a "Gringo". It was a long day because I was the only fisherman in the boat. I was glad to get back to the lodge and rest my weary arm. My wife had a wonderful time lounging around the pool, taking walks on the beach, and receiving casting lessons from Lori-Ann. The second day was special. My wife caught her first Bonefish and I got to rest my sore arm. Tomas put plenty of beer in the cooler and took us on a beautiful ride through a winding canal that separates mexico and Belize and was hand cut by the Mayans hundreds of years ago. Our last dinner evening was more enjoyable as we sat with a couple of real fly fishing characters who provided us with some great stories. My wife got her Bonefishing pin which was also a treat. The fly shop and the outdoor bar are also very nice. If you like to have cocktails early in the day, make sure you have some in your room because the bar doesn't open till 2:00 PM. The gift shop has a great selection of shirts, caps, and other apparel. In summation, the staff was very accomodating and friendly; the accomodations were wonderful although the bathrooms (2 in the villas) were a little small; The dinners were ok but I would rather have more selection; The numbers of fish, including Permit are great; the size of the Bonefish are grenerally smaller than the Bahamas; I would definitely go back.
