Recommended Gear for El Pescador Lodge, Belize
El Pescador Belize Lodge and Villas on Ambergris Caye is a recipient of numerous awards and known as a world class fly fishing resort. The lodge is a top choice for anglers, eco-adventurers and families looking for the best of Belize. It has been owned and operated by the same family for more than twenty years. The Lodge is a Trip Advisor travelers choice and Orvis endorsed lodge.
In addition to great fishing, Belize lies on the Caribbean coast of Central America with 17,000 square miles of dense tropical jungle to explore, mountain ranges with peaks over 3,500 feet and 266 square miles of off shore cays surrounded by coral reefs. Fabulous diving is found everywhere on the Belize Barrier Reef that stretches the entire length of the coast, some 175 miles. In addition, three atolls provide another 180 miles of living reef.
Looking out from the beach, you can see the waves roll over this incredible section of the Belize Barrier Reef. With over 40 Ambergris Caye dive sites, scuba divers will have an abundance of different sites to explore. Snorkeling is fantastic with three Marine Reserves , Hol Chan, Shark-Ray Alley just minutes to the south and Bacalar Chico just to our north.
Some of the best snorkeling in the world is just minutes away from our resort on the world's second longest barrier reef just off our Ambergris Caye location near San Pedro, Belize.
When diving along the main barrier reef at Ambergris Caye, you will experience the vast canyons formed by large, living corals rising from a sandy bottom. These canyons are found just outside the reef at depths of 50 - 100 feet.
