Eben Schaefer is our on site General Manager dedicated to providing a great experience for our valued guests. Eben brings decades of experience in the fly fishing industry as a guide, outfitter, and lodge manager. He has fly fished throughout the Americas and is excited to make Belize, and El Pescador, his home with his life partner, Anna Meunier.
Our family became captivated with our dream of paradise found here in Belize over two decades ago.
We want to ensure that guests who come here for their holidays are not strangers. Our family with our local Belizean staff, welcome you to our El Pescador family. During your stay with us, you’ll meet the other resort guests as we dine together each evening. Over the years, this camaraderie has helped our guests, family and staff create enduring relationships with people from all over the world.
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!!
