What can I say… El Pescador lived up to all of the "hype" that I had heard. My husband and I just returned from a 6 day 5 night trip, and we were definitely not ready to leave. The staff at El Pescador were amazing. They knew us by name within 24 hours of our arrival, and no request was...

Mornings began early with an amazing breakfast. Fly fishing followed on the beautiful ocean. The guides were extremely knowledgable and we had great success catching fish. The social aspect consisted of a fun bar and family-style seating. It was a great opportunity to meet others from all over. The only thing sub-par about this vacation was the weather. There was...

Clearly Belize is a great destination if you want Tropical weather, crystal clear water, beautiful beaches, lots of fish and every kind of outdoor activity possible. However, Paradise is really found when those things are coupled with the most amazing people welcoming and caring for you as their guests. That's El Pescadore. From the moment you arrive and are greeted...

This was my first trip to Belize for fishing so I'm hardly the expert (the diving is outstanding). I spent a weekend with three friends at El Pescador fishing and it was fantastic. The most notable aspect is the service. It is simply off the charts. Everyone is pleasant, over-the-top helpful, and has a fun and friendly attitude. The rooms...

My son and I just returned from spending Thanksgiving week in Belize. Having been to Belize twice before I had forgotten how friendly and happy the locals are. Our trip was primarily for fly fishing the flats. My son, Nick is somewhat new to flyfishing, only taking it up seriously last year in Mexico. The first day we started at...

Well, I was tasked with planing my honeymoon. I had hear about El Pescador on a fishing show and logged on to their website to check it out. We did not know exactly what to expect. IT WAS WONDERFUL! The food, staff, guests, and fishing were just great. The El Pescador family took us in and we were dreading leaving....

The staff at the resort makes you feel like family from the moment you arrive. The fishing was incredible despite some less than stellar weather. Food was yummy, and the redone rooms are amazing. Has my highest recommendation for vacation location.

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
