We came to El Pescador for the first time in 1986. We found the then-owners warm and eager to offer their amazing fishery and create an experience for anglers and their families that would be meaningful. When the Gentry family took over 20 years ago, they built on this tradition of creating a welcoming "home away from home" experience for serious anglers and adventure travelers, as well as adding many amenities - villa accommodations, pools, etc. It goes without saying that we love El Pescador, as we have just completed our 20th consecutive trip. More importantly, this was our best trip ever!!
