On Ambergris this is the place to go if you want to go salt water fly fishing. They will book other excursions - we went snorkeling through them - but the focus is fishing. You eat at tables grouped with others and the conversation is about fishing. We met very nice people, really enjoyed our stay - but it sort of felt like you needed to be fishing every day to fit in. Ken who runs the place is very committed to improving all the aspects of the resort - so things like the food and accommodations will only get better.

My grandfather is 86 years old and this was his fourth trip to Belize. He has convinced more and more of us to tag along each year. I decided to go on the trip for the first time this year because my family had talked up the previous trips so much. I am absolutely obsessed. The rooms are so nice and clean. The staff was ABSOLUTELY AMAZING and so friendly. Note: You do not have to be a fisherman to be on this trip. My mom, my grandmother, our friend, and I lounged by the pool almost every day and ate the delicious fresh food the staff makes for you. It was the perfect vacation. My dad and I went snorkeling as well and it was only a 10 minute boat ride from the resort and was a half-day trip. We saw sea turtles and nurse sharks and so many beautiful fish. There are a variety of activities for those who do not fish. Also, my grandmother is handicapped and usually cannot go on vacations with us but this place is completely handicapped accessible. Everyone was so helpful in making her feel comfortable. Overall, If you go to San Pedro you MUST stay at El Pescador!!!!!

The management and staff at El Pescador are fantastic. When the water taxi brought me to the resort from the airport, Ken the GM and Marlin the guest relations manager were waiting on the dock to greet me and I instantly felt like family. I don't know how they do it but the entire staff remember the guest's names. The food is excellent and plentiful. The room is a lot nicer than it needs to be considering I just needed a place to keep my stuff while fishing and a bed at night. Housekeeping was perfect. As for fishing, I had Senoe as a guide for 3 days and Junior for 1 day. They did challenge my casting and fishing skills and put me in position to catch a lot of fish. By day 4, Senoe had me fly fishing for bone fish like I had done it all my life. I also had a lot of fun spin casting for barracudas. I can't complain about a single thing. I'm serious, EVERYTHING is top notch at El Pescador!

I viisted Belize from 1 to 15 February 2018 and stayed at the El Pescador Resort. I fly fished nearly every day for Tarpon, Permit, and Bonefish. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at El Pescador. The staff are always friendly and competent, the accommodations excellent, and the food delicious. The guides at El Pescador are some of the most knowledgeable and competent I have fished with. Already planning on next year's trip.

Just an excellent facility and trip! My son and I are novice salt water flyfisherman and we had an incredible time on this Orvis sponsored trip. The facilities were excellent-accommodations, food, the pool, and the bar were all fantastic and the fishing and the guides were incredible. I hope we can do this trip again!
