We traveled to Belize in January 2016 to attend a Wilderness Medicine course, but also to see this unique country, and obviously to cast a line, as, after all, the area, and the resort in particular is highly acclaimed as a world class fishing spot! Well, let's just say that from the minute we landed at Belize International airport, we... More

First off, we are not beach people. We generally like the mountains for vacation. However, I wanted to fish for bonefish. El Pescador had the reviews to make it seem like a no-brainer. We were not misled. The place was fantastic. I fished all three days we were there and caught 30+ bonefish on my fly rod. Had a few... More

This was our second visit to El Pescador and it was even better than our first visit, which the bar had been set pretty high. The El Pescador does not settle for mediocrity, they are constantly improving and looking for new ways to impress their guest. Since our last visit, they had completely remodeled the main lodge, which looks fantastic.... More

Came in to celebrate my 30th birthday with my wife. Man, what a great time it was! By now if you have read prior reviews you will know that El Pescador has fantastic service. Let me tell you, the reviews still do not do justice to how great the service at this resort is. From the minute you get off... More

El Pescador provides an absolutely first rate introduction to tarpon and permit fishing. The guides will accommodate you no matter what your fishing skills, and Issa will get you casting better in a single afternoon. Food is delicious, the staff is beyond friendly. We felt like family and did not want to leave!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
El Pescador’s beachfront lodge and villas are situated on over 45 private acres with ambiance, specializing in fishing, diving and eco-adventures. We are family-owned and operated with emphasis on creating camaraderie and an authentic Belizean experience. El Pescador is proud of our philosophy to protect and nurture friendship, adventure and the environment. El Pescador has long been known as a world-class fishing destination offering outstanding flats fishing for bonefish, tarpon and permit. El Pescador has been the only resort on Ambergris Caye specializing in saltwater flats fishing since 1974. Since coming under new ownership in 1997, the resort has established itself as an eco-friendly tropical getaway, including a commitment to offset all carbon emissions generated by its guests flying to Belize. Donations are made on behalf of guests to a local Belizean non-profit organization, Green Reef Environmental Educational and Coastal Research Institute, to offset the carbon emissions used to travel to Belize. El Pescador was also among the key organizations to implement the new Law protecting bonefish, tarpon and permit as catch and release species. This is the most all encompassing legislation of its kind worldwide. It is great news for Belizeans, anglers, tourists and conservationists alike. El Pescador is a serene and gracious establishment on the doorstep of the world’s largest living Barrier Reef. El Pescador offers accommodations in guest rooms within its colonial style, mahogany main lodge, as well as in 1, 2, and 3 bedroom luxury beachfront villas. The villas are perfect accommodations for couples seeking romance and privacy, and for families and small groups traveling together. All rooms and villas are beachfront and have unobstructed views of the Caribbean blue waters. In addition to unequaled fishing, this first-rate resort offers all the eco-adventures which take full advantage of Belize’s exotic flora and fauna. Scuba diving, snorkeling, manatee watching, cave-tubing and zip-lining, and Maya archaeological explorations are just a small assortment of the activities available while staying at El Pescador. ... more   less
