I booked my trip at Turneffe Flats lodge for a number of reasons, the main ones being the isolation and available flats when I'm not with the guide. And the icing on the cake was it was alot less expensive than Pescador. Another reason I went there was that I've been reading about Turneffe for years in the fishing mags. Its always been in the top ten saltwater destinations.
For the remainder of the trip I'm in San Pedro and will probably hire a local guide a day or two.

i found george to be one of the true flats guides of a.c. he spends about 250 days a year on the flats. notice the word flats--no part time reef and part time flats.i fished with george for two days and came away with a wealth of knowlege about the waters we were fishing and the bones and permit and tarpon we were after. the only reason i did not acheive a grand slam rests squarley on my shoulders. i pulled the fly right out of the mouth of a 60# tarpon because i got buck fever. same for the permit. had him hooked and blew it. in all this george and i just sat back and laughed and enjoyed ourselves. our last 3 hours were spent in 10" of water like glass with bones tailing all around as far as you could see. i will return to a.c. as soon as time permits and i will plan that trip so i can hunt the flats once again with george .george far exceeded any expectations i had about fishing in belize. he is the personification of the belizean kindness and willingness to please their guests.

SEASHELL: I speak with absolutely NO personal experience w/ Pescador. However they are an all-inclusive place geared almost entirely to flyguys. I make a long family trip to AC each March. I fish, they wander and catch rays(sun). We really enjoy eating/drinking somewhere different each nite. Also have enjoyed staying at dif. places. San Pedro is unique in it's ability to provide me with a reasonably priced world-class fishing opportunity and the rest of my family with what they want. My other couple of trips/year are pure fish/eat/drink with guys. Our priorities are great guides, good food, and ok booze. Where we lay our heads isn't a big deal. Fishing-wise, I'll put-up a couple of the guides I fish with against any at Pescador. Esp. last March I know we had more opportunities. (notice I don't claim to be a better fisherman)This is not at all intended to be critical, I just don't think my interests fit their target customer. That said, the reason I came to AC the first time was due to their advertising.

Flyfishing my way through mid-life crisis.

The guides are sub contractors and appear to work for several resorts from what I can tell. Its that way up here too.
