El Pescador, Punta Gorda is a world class fly fishing resort in Southern Belize that hosts the world’s most prolific Permit fishery on the flats. We also have great opportunities for both salt and fresh water species.
Whether Fly or Spin fishing is your game, the availability of permit, seasonal tarpon, snook and bonefish make Southern Belize an exceptional fishing opportunity all 12 months of the year. In addition to the Permit, El Pescador, Punta Gorda offers opportunities for several additional saltwater species including barracuda, jack crevelle, snapper, and King Fish.
We encourage you to take advantage of this unique Permit fishery but remember this opportunity is never easy for the weak at heart…”it’s challenging”.
A non-refundable 10% deposit with the Tropical Travel Association is required in order to confirm your reservation. The 90% balance is due to the hotel upon arrival. In special circumstances El Pescador Punta Gorda has the right to apply additional requirements as long as they do so before the 10% deposit is paid.
Of Special Note:
Spending a long travel day at the reef chasing bonefish, heading up one of many jungle rivers hunting tarpon or snook and hitting the lagoon and flats for Permit is all apart of El Pescador, Punta Gorda!
How to find us.
