|El Pescador Lodge - Ambergris Caye, Belize
Our family became captivated with our dream of paradise found 10 years ago. We continue to live that dream today at El Pescador on Ambergris Caye. Many people whose priorities are fishing for bonefish, tarpon and permit ... and the angler's dream of a Grand Slam, diving on our world famous barrier reef, exploring Mayan sites, cave tubing and zip lining and other eco-adventures, or simply relaxing come to holiday with us at El Pescador. Your Hosts: Chris, Steve, Ali and Alonzo.
El Pescador is on the Bahia del Punta Arena, 2.6 miles north of San Pedro, Ambergris Caye. The spot is quiet and private, yet close enough to reach town on foot, bicycle, shuttle, water taxi or golf cart. The El Pescador property stretches across the island from beach to lagoon, offering immediate access to fishing, snorkeling or shelling.
Do azure blue skies and crystalline waters, protected by the world's second longest barrier reef, sound good? Then come to El Pescador!
A Bonefish tailing aggressively in skinny water, giant Tarpon rolling across hundreds of miles of flats, the unmistakable black dorsal fin of Permit...sound like a dream? No, you are talking about El Pescador. Not a dream fishery, but an abundant and diverse fishery that will challenge your ability and capture your imagination.
Our Spanish name "El Pescador" means "the fisherman" and we cater to all types of angler, specializing in light tackle, salt water fly fishing.
We are here to provide as much instruction as you want, if you want it. You bring the motivation and we will provide the education to make you a more proficient saltwater angler.
How about traveling back in time exploring majestic and mysterious Mayan cities, or experiencing Belize's lush rainforest and exotic wildlife? All this and more await you, all you have to do is book a guided tour right here through El Pescador. We offer two ways to experience the Best of Belize: Inland Excursions are trips that take you away from our island via air or boat to the mainland or other islands for a full day. Island Excursions leave directly from El Pescador and are shorter trips to nearby attractions. Both are great ways to experience an adventure unique to Belize!
What about snorkeling and scuba diving tours on Ambergris Caye? Some of the best snorkeling in the world is just minutes away from El Pescador on the world's second longest barrier reef.
If you're a diver, or have diving companions, you've come to the right places -- Belize and El Pescador. With our own on-site dive instructor, we can arrange unforgettable diving experiences through “Under Da Sea Tours”. With our convenient location close to the reef, you can make your stay at El Pescador the diving or snorkeling vacation of a lifetime!
