Value for money:

An established favourite on Ambergris Caye catering for fishermen and non-fishermen alike, with by-the-night rates and package deals available. Fishing is first class, with access to bonefish, permit and tarpon (year-round), and a realistic chance of bagging all three and achieving the grand slam in a single day.





The fishing

The bonefish grounds are only minutes from the lodge. Most of the bonefishing is done from the bow of the boat, but there are flats that can be waded as well. The bones run from 2-5lbs and are plentiful. Additionally, the El Pescador fishery has year-round resident tarpon over 100lbs, not to mention excellent numbers of permit in large schools ranging from 4-30lbs. Jack crevalle, barracuda, cobia and snook are also found on the flats and in the surrounding mangrove lagoons.

El Pescador maintains kayaks and canoes which provide access to an extensive system of lagoons behind the property, where you can fish for bones for a couple of hours in solitude. These boats are available at no charge to El Pescador guests.

The facilities

The mahogany, colonial-style main lodge sits right on the beach and comprises 13 rooms. All are steps away from the swimming pool and adjacent to the beach and all have private baths, overhead fans and air-conditioning. A selection of sea-front, private villas are also available. Other amenities at the resort include restaurant and bar, three swimming pools, massage services, exercise room, complimentary kayaks, complimentary bicycles, diving instructor, WI-FI, tour office, gift shop and the only Scientific Angler Mastery Series Fly Shop in Belize.

San Pedro Town is just a few miles south where you’ll find gift shops, restaurants, bars and night spots. Guests usually travel by water taxi which stops right at the dock.


Sample fishing packages:
4 nights/3 days fishing: $2,110 (single occupancy: $3,070)
7 nights/6 days fishing: $3,535 (single occupancy: $5,380)
