At the beginning of the year, I silently bid on an auction item and actually won. Two nights at the well-known Ambergris Caye fishing lodge El Pescador. Cool. Though I am no fisherman, fly fishing seems different…more…regal. Maybe I can give it a go. And if not, two days laying around a resort with multiple pools, a great swimming dock and close proximity to lots of good restaurants? Heck…I’m in.
Here are some (in fact lots) of pics of the resort…
The slightly smaller pool next to the villa where I was staying.The lovely lounge area next to the bar and to the main pool.
Oh yes…and my room. I got a very cool El Pescador water bottle (see it unceremoniously displayed on the giant bed – my “staging” was off) that I am using right now. Big comfy bed with nice sheets and tons and tons of pillows. THAT is what I was looking for…
For all the information, their certifications, lots of pictures and awards like the 2013 Orvis International Destination of the year, check their site.
El Pescador is located about 2.5 miles north of San Pedro town proper so it’s easy to get back and forth. The water taxi and the resorts boats go quite often…I hopped a ride back to town with Ali, the owner.
