El Pescador has always been a bucket list place to come fish. I had heard about it through Orvis and knew I had to make it down. Upon arriving, the detail that stood out to me the most was that everyone knew our names. Although that may not seem like much, it's the little things that matter and throughout my...

I went to El Pescador fly fishing with my brother. The guides were spot on! Then relaxing at the resort afterwards was refreshing. The staff even makes an effort to learn each visitors name. Food was delicious and a wide variety including lobster, steak, pork chops and fish. Other activities include snorkeling, diving, canoeing, and sea kayaking.

This was my first trip to Belize and my first time to fly fish the flats. We had some tough weather conditions but we were still able to catch some really good fish!! The guides work really hard to find the fish!! The lodge and staff are absolutely 1st class. The food/drink/hospitality are outstanding. I met several guests that had...

I've been to El Pescador several times now, and am always surprised by the quality of the staff. it truly feels like coming home — from Ali, the owner, to Marlin and Mariano and all the staff — it's a comfortable, homey atmosphere. Staff always goes above and beyond to remember names and make myself and my clients feel at...

They say 'family' a lot at El Pescador - and they mean it. We had a great time and were treated like family the entire time. Food was great, accommodations were very comfortable and the staff amazing. I can't wait to get back. And the fishing is amazing, too. Best guides I've ever fished with.

The staff at El Pescador are all that one could hope for; good at their jobs, friendly and obviously dedicated to great customer service. We were there for six days at the end of October 2016. I fished for three days, my wife not at all. The fishing was as good as could be hoped for given the weather conditions,...

Great Food, excellent fishing guides, very attentive staff who all learned our first names on first encounter. All aspects of the resort were clean and well maintained. Transport from Belize City to the resort was handled by El Pescador and all went exactly as planned.

Had a fabulous time at the resort, the food, accommodations, and staff were all top notch. We stayed in Villa 4 and I would recommend it to anyone looking for some room to spread out as it was the closest to the ocean, literally 10 steps. This is a 1st class operation and you will be well taken care of...

Without any other experience of this caliber, this one is my benchmark. Can't imagine how another can really offer more. Clean, large rooms with immaculate housekeeping. Incredibly friendly and efficient staff that really look out for you. Food is fresh, local and homemade which means delicious. Fishing was the focus of trip and the resort's guide are world class professionals...

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
