Reviews for El Pescador
I visited El Pescador for the third time in as many years last week. The staff was outstanding as usual and even remembered my name. The lodge, the food and the excursions were outstanding. My girlfriend joined me for the first time and she loved it too even as a non fly fisher. She wants to go back!! The fishing was affected by the weather somewhat, but again the staff worked to address my concerns even changing guides to improve the experience. I had a great time and plan to visit El Pescador again!

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.
