Belcampo Lodge is 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. The majority of our fishing takes place in protected marine reserves and national parks. RUCUxxBoO_y0m3nTLymwQraylFOJqCacxHD-88yRkVc

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 local to 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 Amazing History of the Lodge

Belcampo Belize is built on lands that date back to the Classic Maya period—around 600 AD—when the Maya people used the Rio Grande river as an important transportation route to the sea.

In the 1860’s Confederates from Alabama and Texas settled in the region to produce cane, cattle and rum. Ms. Marie Louise Young, a Confederate descendant, born in Belize and our own Captain Jackie Young’s grandmother, eventually bought the “Big Hill” property and farmed cattle and 80-acres of sugarcane. She produced aged and Agricole rum and started a distillery called “Rocky Run Rum” on the property until the 1970s. The original cane press can be seen in the center of our Farm Center. In 2001 the property was sold to the owners of El Pescador in San Pedro and construction began on El Pescador South, a new fly fishing lodge

tnsFLbGH1Cciy3PeUX0weiGEPYp1VkRtWQlts6wHWRg In 2005, Todd Robinson purchased the fishing lodge and renamed it Machaca Hill Lodge. During this time, the simple rustic fishing lodge underwent extensive improvements, transforming the lodge into a luxury resort with a variety of new river and inland adventures. As an avid marine conservationist, Todd became involved in the region by aiding in the purchase of more than 45,000 acres of rainforest together with the Toledo Institute for Development and Environment (TIDE). In 2009, Belcampo CEO Anya Fernald partnered with Robinson to produce Belcampo’s keystone organic crops of cane, cacao, coffee and vanilla and provide lodge visitors with agritourism programs that share and study these exotic ingredients at their origin.


Set in the verdant hills above the Caribbean coast of southern Belize, Belcampo is a sanctuary from the everyday world. The definition of agritourism-chic: a Jungle Lodge, organic farm and a 12,000-acre nature reserve, Belcampo Belize offers the best in local food and culture, active adventures, wildlife viewing, saltwater fly-fishing, and world-class hospitality.


At the heart of Belcampo Belize is the Main Lodge with The Jungle Farm Restaurant, The Rum Bar, the Jungle Spa, lounge areas, a swimming pool, and observation decks that open to stunning vistas of the coast, the Maya Mountains and a seemingly endless pristine rainforest. Our 16 individual, spacious suites are well appointed with plush beds, screened fresh-air verandas, and spa-style bathrooms with floor to ceiling tropical rainforest views

Walk down 365 steps or take the private tram to the riverside dock where kayaks and canoes are available for complimentary use, or visit our air-conditioned gym. From the dock, you can embark on tranquil cruises on the jungle reaches of the Rio Grande, or guided snorkeling and fishing adventures on the Caribbean Sea.
