Belcampo provides the best of the Belezian jungle with the ability to get onto some of the world’s great Permit flats.

This unique property at the heart of a twelve thousand acre nature reserve offers a unique perspective into Belize's culture and environment while providing a large range of activities for all the family.

  • Season: all year round
  • World-class Permit, Bonefish, Tarpon, Snook, Barracuda, Jacks and Snapper
  • Ideal for individuals, small or large groups
  • Tropical jungle wildlife experience
  • Extensive non-fishing activities
  • Average temperatures: mid 20s to high 30s, fairly consistent due to its proximity to the equator

Belcampo Lodge is situated on the southern tip of Belize, just north of Punta Gorda. This area receives little publicity about the fantastic unspoilt eco-system and jungle that surrounds this region. Belcampo is ideally located to offer a fishing and non-fishing adventure holiday for singles or the entire family.

Accommodation is in one of the sixteen beautifully built, comfortable cabinas. They all have air-conditioning and either a large single or twin beds, private en-suite bathrooms and showers and a large deck overlooking the jungle canopy.

Additional amenities include a spa, swimming pool, access to mountain bikes, kayaks and hiking trails.

Dining at Belcampo Lodge is gourmet style with some of the best prepared cuisine in Belize. The kitchen team work hard to present a mix of Belizean dishes fused with American cuisine. Much of the food is produced in the farm at the resort with the best ingredients and local seafood, meats, fresh fruit and vegetables.

There is also a well stocked bar and cool beers always available as well as a range of local spirits and fruit juices/soft drinks.

For the non-fisher, the list of activities is vast: from kayaking and canoeing to bird-watching and jungle tours, nature trails and hiking, river excursions and snorkelling.

There is WIFI at Belcampo Lodge.

Perched above the Rio Grande River and just a short boat ride from the Caribbean Sea, Belcampo Belize is a fly-fisher’s paradise. Cast for Tarpon and Snook on the river and in the mangroves, fish the flats for Permit, or when the weather permits, head out to the white sand beaches of the Sapodilla Cayes for Bonefish which are mostly around two to three pounds in weight but with larger fish in the five-pound range also present. The majority of the fishing takes place in protected marine reserves and national parks.

The Permit flats are about a forty-five-minute's boat ride from the resort. Clearly, the river and mangrove fishing is much closer and easily accessible from the resort. In the rivers around Punta Gorda Tarpon range from ten to fifty pounds in weight and there are plenty of Snook and Jacks. It is quite common to literally see hundreds of Permit in one day and have several shots at them.

Southern Belize is best known as a world renowned Permit territory and while most anglers who visit the region are intermediate to advanced, our expert guides also accommodate beginners for a one-of-a-kind fishing experience. Belcampo’s guides are all locals of the southern Belize region and are happy to accommodate your fishing preference and style. They are extremely patient and professional and understand this is your trip.

The guides use the 23ft super Pangas that are comfortable and very stable as well as being capable of getting into skinny water. We would advise all anglers to bring their own equipment rods, reels, lines, flies, wading boots etc. There is a gift shop at the resort that has a limited selection of flies and rental equipment in case you forget something or need spares.

There is no typical day at the lodge, however, it starts after breakfast when you leave the dock around 8:00am and return after a full day out around 5:00pm. However, this will change depending on tides and conditions, so be flexible to maximise the fishing. The guides will advise.

Most of the fishing is from the boat but there are some flats that allow for walking and wading.
