Fishing In a Tropical Paradise
The Belize Barrier Reef, the longest in the western Hemisphere, shelters the best stocked light-tackle fishing grounds of the Caribbean and is a five minute boat ride from the shores of Ambergris Caye. The water is warm and crystal clear.
Whether you just want to have a little fun or you are an avid fly or sports fisherman, the right tour guide can be found on the island. Catch your supper with a part-time tour guide/fisherman or inquire at the hotel for the highly skilled fly-fishing guides who closely guard their "secret" fishing grounds.
Interested in big gamefish? The country has several tournaments annually. Guided half and full day trips can be arranged. Some include a picnic on the north end of the island where the fish you catch is cooked for your lunch.
