MEALS | DRINKS | COCKTAILS & BEER

Of all the places around the world I’ve traveled to fly fish, El Pescador rates at the top of my list as far as food and drinks go. Included in your total dues are three gourmet meals a day as well as any local rum based cocktails and local beer (Beliken).

FRESH, LOCAL CARIBBEAN CUISINE

El Pescador always provides a seasonal farm-to-table dining experience that reflects the culinary origins of our country.  Our fish catch is from nearby waters - meats and produce come from family-owned and local farms on mainland Belize.  

The chef’s menus include delicious standard daily meals as well as vegetarian and vegan options. Please notify me of any special dietary needs. 

GRAND SLAM BAR

Our Grand Slam bar is a perfect place to relax after a full day of activity!  In addition to a full selection of both local and imported beverages, we have a pool table, foosball table, a fly tying area and other games located in the bar for your enjoyment. Bar opens at 2:00pm for drinks. Afternoon bar snacks are available from 3.00pm – 5.00pm (coconut shrimp, veggies and dip, jalapeno poppers, fresh fruit and many more).

THE FISHING

At El Pescador you can achieve the anglers' ultimate dream - a Grand Slam of bonefish, tarpon and permit. Belize's shallow water flats contain the only classic tarpon flats outside South Florida. The flats are world renowned for offering the opportunity to sight cast to tarpon, bonefish and permit 12 months a year.

The trip is all about your fishing goals. Whether you want to catch Bonefish until your blue in the face, pound the mangroves for Tarpon and Snook, or wade the flats for tailing Permit. Your guide will work his butt off put you in the position to make the cast. The Belizean flats are fertile, healthy and hold more opportunities for catching multiple species than anywhere I’ve ever fly fished.

YOUR GOALS | THE GUIDES | CASTING INSTRUCTION

All El Pescador fishing guides were born and raised on the island. The lodge prides itself on having some of the most experienced guides in Belize. Many of their fishing guides have been with them for over 20 years, and now their second and third generations of El Pescador guides are in full swing! Most guides trained with their fathers or uncles for many years, learning the craft, before captaining their own flats boat.

Their guides' encyclopedic knowledge of this fishery comes from a lifetime dedicated to learning where the fish are and how they behave. El Pescador guides are excellent technical fishermen and will be happy to provide instruction during your fishing day.

At El Pescador they have created a teaching environment. When you arrive they sit down with you, make sure you have the gear you need, describe the current fishing conditions, and generally get a feel for what you hope to achieve while fishing with us.

Each day your guide will assist with casting and fishing instruction, and when you return to the lodge you may choose to join their evening casting workshops, where we work on the tools needed to succeed in fishing the flats.
