Balmy breezes rich with bird song drift among the private cottages. Relax and enjoy our Belizean hospitality & a combination of fine Belizean-Creole-American cuisine.
The Belize River Lodge is a tried and proven world class fishing lodge in continuous operation since 1960. It was the first fishing lodge built in Belize. We specialize in some of the very best saltwater fishing in all of Belize, and we also offer customized eco-tours.
Sight fishing the FLATS is our specialty, with variety our main attraction. BONEFISH, TARPON, PERMIT, and SNOOK are the main species caught by fly fishing and/or spin casting anglers. About 75% of our guests are fly fishers, men and women, who are in pursuit of the Grand Slam. Belize River Lodge operates two systems of fishing; fishing from the Lodge and fishing from the Motherships. Whether you choose to stay at the Lodge or aboard one of the Motherships, you will surely enjoy your ultimate tropical adventure with us.
The Lodge was built amongst the palm, coconut, mahogany, logwood & mango trees, in a genuine jungle setting. Many native trees were left in place around the Lodge for atmosphere & shade. Mahogany was the wood used for building the Lodge.
The Lodge can accommodate up to sixteen people. The Guest House is a two story mahogany building. It contains four rooms, each with two single beds, private hot & cold showers, ceiling fans, a/c & screened verandas overlooking the Belize Olde River. The Cottage is set up for two groups of two or for a family of four. Each room has separate hot & cold showers, ceiling fans, a/c & two single beds. Both are separated by a connecting door and share an open veranda. One of the cottage rooms has a cozy sitting area. The Bungalow has two rooms, each with a double & a single bed, private hot & cold shower, ceiling fan, a/c, & a large screened veranda, which allows the tropical trade winds to blow through. All of the Lodge rooms are air conditioned and decorated with a tropical Belizean ambience. When you return from fishing, fresh water and ice will be ready in your room, and your bed will be turned down for you during dinner.
The main Lodge houses the kitchen, office, Mags' gift shop, Mike's fishing closet, the dining room, lounge area, screened in porch & self service bar. From the Belize River Lodge's kitchen comes an excellent combination of the best Belizean, Creole, and American cuisine. The Lodge cooks use the freshest and finest ingredients (even coconuts off the trees in the front yard), and along with some of Mags' old family recipes, create some of the most memorable tasty meals, which will have you asking for a few of her recipes. Remember, save room for coffee or tea and dessert!
