New Fishing Packages for "Grand Slam" Season in Belize

School of fish in Belize

When's the best time to fish in Belize? 

Fishing here is excellent year-round, but the best times to catch the "Big Three" of tarpon, bonefish, and permit is in June, July, and August. We call this Grand Slam Season. (This is also a time when you can find the lowest airfares to Belize!) 

To help you plan the perfect trip, we're excited to announce four new Fishing Packages -- from a short weekend trip with one day of fishing, to a full-week fishing extravaganza complete with unlimited beer in our Sand Bar Lounge. And fishing off our docks is always complimentary. 

Summer 2018 Special = $100 Credit Per Night!

This May through September, we're offering an extra incentive: get a $100 credit per night stayed when you book any fishing package for two people directly with the resort. How cool is that?

 

But isn't it hot in the summer?

Yes, it feels very tropical! :) In general we experience temperatures in the upper 80s and 90s (with a few days over 100 but not many), and on our island we have a nearly constant breeze. All room have a/c and fans, and there is plenty of shade and cold beverages. Be prepared for the occasional thunderstorm, usually passing over at night. Summer is considered "rainy season" in Belize, but that's more for the mainland than the cayes (pronounced "keys"). Learn more about our weather here. 

 

"The Big Three": Tarpon, Permit, and Bonefish

Did you know the shallow waters of Belize contain the only classic tarpon flats outside of Florida? Our flats offer the opportunity to site cast to tarpon 12 months of the year. Tarpon numbers begin to increase in April and May and drop off in September or October, with the peak months being June, July, and August. 

Permit are found on what is called “the bonefish flats” and on many of the tarpon flats as well. They are found in large schools and range from four to thirty pounds, with the majority in the range of eight to ten pounds. Jack crevalle, barracuda, cobia, and snook are also found on the flats and in the mangrove lagoons. 

The bonefish in the waters of Belize run from two to five pounds and are plentiful year-round. Most fly fishing for bonefish is done from the bow of the boat, but there are flats that may be waded as well.

Seeking adventure in 2017? The experts say: Travel to Belize!

Seeking adventure in 2017? The experts say: Travel to Belize!

We love seeing Belize in the travel news because that means more people will discover this awesome country and want to visit! So we were pleased to see that Belize was selected as a "top adventure tour destination" to visit in 2017 by Stride Travel, a large search and review site for tours and adventure experiences. 

You can read the press release here on Belize Breaking News.

EXPERIENCE THE BEST BELIZE ADVENTURES WITH A "REEF TO RAINFOREST" PACKAGE

Many travelers considering Belize want to spend time both in the jungle and on the beach and have a hard time deciding. We can help!

At St. George's Caye we offer four jungle/beach all-inclusive packages to choose from, so you can spend time on the mainland and on our island and have all of your meals and transportation included. Easy! We work with two different jungle lodges, each offering a different experience in a different part of the country, depending on your interests. 

Packages with Mariposa Jungle Lodge & Tours

Located in the heart of Maya country in the Cayo district on the West side of Belize (near Guatemala), Mariposa Jungle Lodge offers a luxury jungle experience with 6 beautiful cabanas and a main lodge for meals. They have a swimming pool, jungle birdwatching tower, and hiking trails onsite. Plus a large variety of adventure, nature, and cultural tours led by their professional in-house tour guides of Mayan descent. 

Maya Love & Island Bliss romance package

Maya, Cayo & The Caye adventure package

Packages with Caves Branch Jungle Lodge & Adventure Tours

Located near Belmopan in the center of the country, Ian Anderson's Caves Branch Jungle Lodge is truly in the jungle and focuses on providing fun adrenaline-fueled adventures for the whole family (it's not for everyone, they say so right on their website!). They have treehouse suites, a botanical walking trail, swimming pool, and many of the adventures are right on their property like waterfall repelling and cave tubing. 

Jungle Beach Romance honeymoon/romance package

Twice The Paradise adventure package

 

CAN WE STAY AT AN ISLAND RESORT AND STILL SEE THE MAINLAND?

Yes, definitely! We know not everyone wants to sleep in the jungle and that is okay. You can stay on the beach in one of our private thatch cabanas and take advantage of our guided tours to see more of Belize. 

At St. George's we offer a variety of day trips to the mainland so you can climb Mayan ruins or float through caves in an underground river or visit museums and the Belize Zoo. Our convenient central location only 7 miles from Belize City makes for quick travels back and forth for your jungle adventures (it's about a 20 minute boat ride each way). 

The best part about staying at St. George's is how close we are to the reef - and with no other dive resorts nearby so you have privacy and seclusion. Explore the barrier reef while diving or snorkeling and you'll likely not see another boat or diver besides our group. You'll see a wide variety of coral and fish and even the occasional dolphin or manatee!

GET IN TOUCH TO PLAN YOUR 2017 BELIZE ADVENTURE!
