El Pescador feels like you have been going there for years but with no wear and tear on the accommodations. Our room was very updated (granite counters, walk-in shower etc.). Meals were great and graciously served. Fishing guides were excellent and the lodge had everything...More

Lodge and staff went out of their way to make me and my wife feel welcomed and accommodate all our needs including my wife's food allergies such as needing to eat gluten free. Plenty of opportunities for both the angler (me) and non-angler (my wife)....More

ElPescador was a nice place to visit. Grounds are ok (no swimming as the beach and sea are loaded with sea weed.) Staff is great and the food is good. Nice place for a non angling spouse. Now the fishing. No matter where you fish...More

About
Description
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 ...More 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. Less

I agree with the above answer. We did the snorkeling trip to the reef and very much enjoyed it but suggest that you go on a day when the currents are not strong unless you are a good swimmer. The trip south to swim with the... More
