The Belize River Lodge rests quietly on the lush, green banks of the Belize Olde River, only 3.5 miles from the mouth of the river – the entrance into the Caribbean Sea and classic Flats fishing. This beautiful historic mahogany lodge  is situated amidst an abundant tropical setting. Balmy breezes rich with the sound of bird song drift among the private cottages creating a naturalist’s paradise. Relax and delight in our Belizean hospitality and our delicious combination of fine Belizean-Creole cuisine.

The Belize River Lodge is a tried and proven world-class fishing lodge in continuous operation since 1960. It was the first fishing lodge built in Belize and was known as Barothy’s Caribbean Lodge Ltd; then Keller Caribbean Sports Ltd (KCS); and since January of 1987, Belize River Lodge. We specialize in some of the very best saltwater fishing in all of Belize. BRL also offers customized eco-tours for non-anglers looking to have a tropical vacation or the angler wanting to get to see a little more of Belize.

Conveniently located, Belize River Lodge is a short and easy trip to the spin and flyfishing Flats. Sight fishing the FLATS is our specialty, and variety the main attraction. BONEFISH, TARPON, PERMIT and SNOOK are the main species caught by fly fishing and/or spin casting anglers. About 75% of our guests are fly fishers, men and women, who are in pursuit of the Grand Slam. Belize River Lodge operates two systems: fishing &/or touring from the Lodge and fishing and vacation relaxation at our island Outpost on Long Caye. Whether you choose to stay at the Lodge or Long Caye Outpost Lodge, you will surely revel in your ultimate tropical adventure!
