Traveling to Belize is "Your Belize Trip" worth taking... especially if you enjoy sport
fishing! Belize is now considered the place to go for some of the best fishing in the world. The weather and its
barrier reef contribute to making this a great destination for fishing. The rain season is from June to November thus making
December through May the perfect time to travel to Belize. However, temperatures are about
80 degrees all year round so actually any time of the year is okay for fishing in Belize.
Okay, we've established the best time of the year to go
to Belize... now let's cover the "how to get there" part. And
of course, for most of us, this means via commercial air travel.
AIRLINES THAT GO TO BELIZE FROM THE U.S. AND CANADA...
There are numerous options for flying to Belize from the U.S.
or Canada. You will most likely fly to Belize on one of these five carriers: Continental, American, U.S.
Airways, Delta, or Grupo Taca.
BEST AIRLINE RATES TO BELIZE...
The best way, to get the best rate, is still to get booked as early
as possible. There's enough variety among flights from the U.S. to warrant comparing rates. So be sure to take
the time to compare both services and prices.
THE BEST AIR ROUTE TO BELIZE...
When you making reservations, try to get as few connecting
flights as possible. If you have several connections, small delays will add up... perhaps to the point of your missing
the final flight from your gateway city to Belize. If you can, don't accept reservations with less than two hours between
such connections as very tight connections will also increase the chance you might miss one
of your connecting flights. Of course if you are flying in a day early then you don’t have to be as concerned about
multiple and/or tight connection problems.
FLYING TO CANCUN MEXICO TO GET TO BELIZE...
Anothe option which has become popular is to fly to Cancun,
Mexico and then fly Maya-Island Air to Belize. In some instances it's actually a cheaper way to get there. Tip:
Contact Maya-Island Air and if you are traveling with a large group ask them if they can provide a Discount Rate. Maya-Island
Air flights depart Cancun daily at 8:00 a.m. and 4:50 p.m. and take about 45 minutes to fly to the Belize City International
Having determined the best time of the year to go to Belize,
and how to get there, let's now discuss some of the popular locations for sport fishing in Belize.
Guides in Belize tend to focus on (1) Fly Fishing (2) Inshore Fishing (3) Deep sea fishing or (4) Flats Fishing.
Fly fishing in Belize is a huge draw for the avid fly fisherman. Some excellent fly fishing lodges are located throughout
the Belize coastal regions. Fly fishing guides in Belize concentrate on fishing the flats for bonefish, permit,
and tarpon. Bonefishing and other types of fly fishing can be a challenging yet rewarding experience on the crystal
clear flats waters.
FISHING... For those who do not wish to go Offshore, or Deep Sea fishing you will have an abundance of opportunities to fish
for grouper, tarpon, barracuda and bonefish within sight of the Belizean shoreline.
DEEP SEA FISHING... Deep Sea, or Offshore, fishing in Belize
is another great option. Many Belize fishing charters operate near the Turneffe Reef, Lighthouse Reef, or
Glover Reef. Charters are easily accessible from Belize City, Punta Gorda, Ambergris Caye, and Placencia. If you go
deepsea fishing in Belize, you'll have a chance to catch some nice sailfish, shark, bonito, tuna, and much more. Plan a Belize
fishing vacation and have the trip of a lifetime.
Belize flat fishing can be done in a wide variety of flats varying in composition from white sand, to coral patches to eel
grass covered areas. Most all the flats throughout the Belizean shores have firm bottoms which make for easy wading.
Or you may choose to cast from a boat as your guide poles the flats and hop out of the boat to get a better casting
position to catch a permit or bone. Fishing boats are typically equipped with casting decks and often utilizing
well maintained Brand 4-stroke motors which are quiet and clean running.
Flats fishing in the flats is generally
from 6 inches on top and drop 75-100 feet of water on the edges, which makes them a perfect habitat for permit. Permit can
be found on these flats in good numbers. You can get to cast to up to 20 tailing fish on an average day; bonefish are also
plentiful on the more sandy flats.
