The sign on the wall of your home says it all: “I got a new fishing rod for my wife; best trade I ever made!” Your wife understands. She knew when she married you that fishing was your passion!
Both husbands and wives understand that for avid fisherman and fisherwomen, there is no activity that provides the excitement, thrills and happiness found on a single day spent standing with a rod in hand and waiting for the magical tug on the line that signals success.
Whether your bucket list is filled with fishing dreams or you’re just beginning to get a grip on this surprisingly athletic sport, you won’t find a better destination to try all forms of fishing than by going to Belize, staying at Laru Beya Resort and taking advantage of specialized fishing tours designed just for avid anglers.
The perfect base for a perfect experience
Because you know that location can mean the difference between a good fishing adventure and a spectacular one, fishing fanatics know that being close to Belize’s famous Great Barrier Reef is the secret to success. But before you head out into the water, you’ll need to stash your stuff and there is no better place to set up camp than Laru Beya.
The resort is filled with amenities that include fabulous food, lush lodgings and a spa guaranteed to relax your body after a glorious battle with your catch. But all of these delights don’t hold a candle to what awaits offshore when you venture forth on the resort’s tours. What can you expect to bag? That depends on what’s biting at mangrove lagoons, coral inlets and further out to sea, all of which are at your beck and call.
Which of these tours whets your appetite?
1. The Reef Fishing option
Piloted by veteran guides, you cruise past nooks and crannies along the reef on a mission to spot seasonal favorites like barracuda, jack, snapper, grouper, king mackerel and more. Your guide will move to multiple spots along the reef in search of prizes you can enjoy that night for dinner after Laru Beya chefs prepare your catch. Book this tour separately for yourself or make it a memorable group trip.
2. The Fly Fishing option
Few die-hard anglers can say no to this remarkable experience. Not only do bonefish, tarpon and permit lurk beneath the ocean surface waiting for you to snag them, but you’ll go to shallow flats surrounding iconic cayes for opportunities to catch and release select fish, too. You could even land the Grand Slam of fly fishing if you play your cards right and the planets align to deliver this coveted accolade!
We can see that you’re enthused—perhaps that funny sign will inspire you to take that fishing adventure with your spouse. It’s a shared experience that has no equal, and someone else gets to prepare dinner that night, so all you need do is pick the wine from Laru Beya’s list and you’ll wish your stay could last forever!
