There is some good fishing to be done on Ambergris Caye. We know that and so does FishingBooker, the world’s largest website for booking fishing charters, as they recently named Ambergris Caye among the 7 Best Luxury Fishing Destinations for 2019. What an honor!

According to Allison Arthurs, PR Manager for FishingBooker, the destinations had to meet a number of factors to even be considered, including “user reviews, access to quality fishing, overall aesthetic of a place, and vicinity to luxury resorts, exclusive restaurants, and other lavish activities”. La Isla Bonita won a spot of the list for meeting many of those factors. “Ambergris Caye boasts picture-perfect vistas and amazing weather year round. Private snorkeling tours will take visitors around the reef to see manatees, turtles, and Nurse Sharks. The accommodations on the island is a big part of what makes this place so indulgent. There’s a myriad of boutique hotels, luxury lodges, and beachside villas to choose from, each more enticing than the next. Anglers will find the best Tarpon, Permit, and Bonefish fishing known to man [on the island]. Just a few miles offshore, the seabed drops by a staggering 1,400 feet. This means that Sailfish, Mahi Mahi, White and Blue Marlin are all on the menu in these waters.”
Fishing has always been an important part of the island’s identity. Throughout the years, islanders have cultivated a successful industry around the bounties of the Caribbean Sea, with sports fishing quickly becoming a go to activity for many visitors to the island. Competitions have also become a main attraction for competitive sports fishermen, with many of Belize’s top fishing tournaments being held out of Ambergris Caye. It goes to say that fishing is a must-do while on the island!
