Ranked #2 of 55 Hotels in San Pedro
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 21 October 2017

The El Pescador is a first class resort and the fishing experience ranks 10 in my book. Service was impeccable, the guide was experienced and although my first time fly fishing salt water, we caught a lot of fish.

Everyone at the resor knew us by first name on the first day. I made friends and am already planning my next trip.

Our group of 8 friends enjoyed EVERYTHING about our trip to El Pescador. We went for the scuba, snorkeling, fishing and relaxing. The Staff at the lodge is truely amazing. They have thought of everything to make the trip effortless, taking care of all of the connections, the excursions, the delicious food and drinks. They maintain a exceptionally clean facility!
Everyone feels like family there. You come as a guest, leave as a friend.

A spontaneous trip with a friend of 35 years led to an excellent fishing experiences at El Pescador! The facility is well equipped to create a fly fishing memory worth repeating. The staff and guides make the trip an easy one. All connections, food and fishing are arranged. We did not have to make any other plans for our trip as the lodge handled everything we needed. The food was fabulous with made to order breakfast and lunches. Dinners were enjoyable family style affairs offering the opportunity to learn from other guests. Our fishing guide took the time to teach us how to improve our casting and seemed to have a sixth sense as to where the fish would be.

Beautiful clean surroundings, excellent accommodations, great food, terrific hosts, and most importantly, great flats fishing. Plenty of Tarpon, Permit and Bonefish. The guides work hard to make sure everyone catches fish.

Room Tip: Everything from single rooms to multi bedroom villas available.

As a professional fishing guide I have hosted a group trip to El Pescador for my fishing clients and friends each year for the last three years. The staff at El Pescador never fail to deliver anything but the best service. This year was no exception. From the food, to the accommodations, to the fishing experience..everything was top notch! Thank you once again to the El Pescador family!!! See you next year!

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
